Update your BIOS to the latest available, Version 2209 from P5Q - Motherboards - ASUS

And, Upload a snapshot Using Speccy.

Hey Arc,
BIOS already updated to the latest 2209, and I wrote down my specs on my profile. So why do I need to install Speccy? Or does it do anything else than exporting the spec list of my machine?

If you have followed BSOD posting instruction, I dont need your system specs. I have more than the specs can say, other than the PSU and cooler.

I want the speccy snapshot for some other reason .... to verify some other thing that may cause a stop 0x124 BSOD.

If it had been unsafe, I would not have asked for it. Nobody can steal nothing from you.

If you are afraid, post a screenshot of the summery tab at least. Otherwise it would not be possible to continue with a stop ox124 troubleshooting.

Well, Here is it from what you supplied to me privately .....

Attachment 285801

It is not really very hot, but at the critical level. I would suggest you to dismantle the computer. Clean inside the computer very carefully, Clean the air vents and fan grills, so that it can blow the air out easily.

While re-seating, apply new thermal paste to the CPU.



Also let us know the wattage of your PSU.

My PSU is Seasonic 620W 80Plus Bronze
I use the arctic silver paste on this CPU.. I didn't change it for couple of years now, no problem doing that again
