Windows 7: BSOD at seemingly random intervals error 0x0000003B

BSOD at seemingly random intervals error 0x0000003B

Hi All,

Hopefully you guys can help as i've run out of ideas on a small problem that just wont go away, computer related of course

My computer has always had an issue where occasionally it will BSOD without warning, always quoting a hardware error. Up till now i've lived with it but its finally got to the point where i want it sorted once and for all.

As its always done it, i suspected it may be down to faulty hardware but ruled that out, as it passes stress tests, memory checks, cpu tests with no problems.

I've tried the following so far:

  • A nice shiney new graphics card for my birthday which i had hoped that by replacing the old one may magically fix the random BSOD...no avail. Exactly the same thing happens.
  • Next up was running the ram stick individually - still the same issue.
  • Removed my xonar card - seemed to work as it appeared more stable, but then the same thing happened
Just to give some more info, something that may be totally unrelated but occassionaly, when booting, my system will lock up on the windows logo screen. It will do the fancy spinning thing, complete the logo, then nothing. When the sounds card was in, i used to be able to tell if it had booted correctly as you could hear the sound card itself, tick twice - if it only ticked once i'd know it was stuck.


So what else can i try? Help me windows 7 forums, you're my only hope

Hi Maverick2002.

A stop 0x124 is a hardware failure, apparently.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.
How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Is the computer running hot? Let us see. Upload a snapshot Using Speccy.
Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Let us know the results. And, are you having any trouble with any audio device there?

Hi, thanks for the reply - I'm on with the tests now.

Quick question, regarding the furmark tests- i've followed the guide, run it but cant find where it saves the logs?

I ran it for 5 minutes and it levelled out at a temp of 84.

I'll run the other tests overnight tonight

Power supply is an antec trupower 650 and i think it should be enough.....i hope anyway :P

If five minutes in furmark did not cause any trouble there, we may consider that the GPU is not failing.

Temps are also good.

Waiting for the results of the other tests

Prime ran for 2 hours with no errors. Stopped the test and blue screen straight away -log attached.

Also, interestingly, speedfan registered my cpu temp as -60 and didnt change!? Guessing it bugged out.

Not sure why, but after one of these BSOD windows gets stuck after the windows logo shows, the logo just stays on screen and refuses to enter windows - unrealted maybe?

Sorry, I missed that

At this situation, you should go for deeper and detailer troubleshooting, as the real reason behind a stop 0x124 is sometimes really hard.
