Windows 7: BSOD 0x124 on startup

BSOD 0x124 on startup

I'm getting BSOD 0x124 on my Win7 system almost every windows startup. It happens before "Welcome" screen. After i get 3-4 bsod(sometimes 20-25), i can see my desktop. After it passes "welcome" screen, i get no BSOD. I stressed my CPU, played games like Battlefield 4, Assasins Creed IV on high settings, also im using AutoCAD and 3dsMAX, i can get renders etc, no BSOD while using my computer. Only at "welcome" screen and mostly 0x124, sometimes 0x101 or 0x03b, rarely 0x9c.

I tried installing Windows 8, but it gives 0x124 BSOD( WHEA Uncorrectable Error ) randomly, even while installing it. And im using Win7 now, because at least after i pass welcome screen succesfully, im able to use my computer.

My GPU and CPU settings are default. No overclock/downclock.

Hi supernova26.

Are you overclocking?
Code:
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3400
CurrentSpeed: 3411
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

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

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.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

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.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results.

No, i dont overclock. Maybe my bios overclocks? Dont know. I checked my bios settings and its all at "default"

And, i stressed CPU and GPU as you said. I changed my PSU 1 week ago, still same bsod. And my computer is not hot. While playing games, CPU mostly 60C and GPU 70-75C. But this bsod happens at startup, and my room is mostly 25C.
