Windows 7: BSOD while gaming

BSOD while gaming

I've BSOD 5 times with this machine, all while gaming. At first I was lead to believe it was because my graphics card was just over heating. First instance was while playing Grid 2 on high settings. I felt a FPS drop and I could just feel something going wrong and just a few second later I got my first BSOD. It continued to happen while playing Grid 2, Total War Rome 2, Guild Wars 2, and my latest one and most alarming Bastion. It could be something as simple as my Graphics card going bad (I hope it is and not something more major). Having Bastion crash me though is scaring me, so before I decide to upgrade my GPU I'd like a more knowledgeable person to look over my issue.

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. You can read more on this error and what to try here... Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try: Stop 124 - What it means and what to try

Based on the bugchecks, I would recommend you follow and complete the steps given below:
1. If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop. Reset any changed values back to default and reset/clear CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS. Uninstall any overclocking tool as these can also be a reason of blue screens.

2. Uninstall your current antivirus software. It can be a cause of BSOD very often. Please remove it with its removal tool and use Microsoft Security Essentials in its place. Malwarebytes is a great combination with it. Go through this thread for more info.

3. Run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

4. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to check windows for integrity violations. Run it up to three times to fix all errors. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations.

5. Make scans with Kaspersky TDSskiller and ESET Online scanner.

6. Perform a Clean Start up, this will help avoid any problematic applications from bugging the system.

7. Use Revo Uninstaller Free to uninstall stubborn software. Opt for Advanced Mode and uninstall the software, delete the leftover registry entries.

8. Use Crystal Disk Info to upload a screenshot of your Hard Drives (s). Test your Hard Drives (s) running a Hard Drive Diag.

9. Test and Diagnose RAM issues with RAM - Test with Memtest86+. Pay close attention to Part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors" Take the test for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.

If anymore information is needed please ask. I'm really hoping to get this fixed so I can play games without any worry of my computer crashing in the middle of a session. It might be worth mention as well the bug check code 0x00000124 and that it was caused by driver hal.dll at the address: hal.dll+12a3b.

So I've updated the BIOS on my Z87 Deluxe and installed the ASUS suite III, which I seemed to have overlooked during my build. That seems to have solved the BSOD I haven't had one yet. *knock on wood*
