Windows 7: BSOD after adding an external video card error 0x000000124

I looked at the dumps armed with the new information you posted
and I have a few things for you to try before concluding its hardware.





Side note;
I see this kind of case is very limiting in term of expandability.
Before you dump either part (being the GPU or PSU) test the PC outside of the case
with a different (known to be good) more capable PSU and see if it still crashes.
If it does crash you might have a faulty slot and / or bad GPU. if it doesn't than you know the PSU is the culprit.

Thanks. I'll give Driver Sweeper a try. I work for the next few days so the next time I'm off I'll also give the out of the case option a try.

I did find a 400w Power supply, Do you think that would add anything? Or a extra 100w isn't going to do much of anything?

For the past hour or so everything has been stable so I'm hoping it will stay that way.

A 100W is plenty, I would personally go with a 150W headroom.
What you really need to be asking yourself is, investing in a new, not so powerful PSU, just to be able
to run a not so new not so powerful GPU really worth it on a pretty modern system?

If you would want to upgrade in the future you will have to buy a new PSU all-over again.
Those are my two cents.

Let us know how things develop!
