An error will show up red at the bottom, you can't miss it.
I thought you had to stop it once an error occurred... So it's okay to have it continue running even though an error has occurred?

No not at all, I've never known that anyway.
It's fine to run it overnight.

Also, did the files that I uploaded the second time round have anything about the CPU like the first zip did? I just wanted to know if the two errors were caused by the same thing...

Thanks for the replies.

Ran it overnight and no errors came up, everything seemed fine! Ended up with 6 passes and nearly up to the 7th.

Did you run Prime95 again for around 2 hours?
If not please run it, if so and no errors came up then I recommend running Driver Verifier by following these instructions

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Reason being, I have had encounters where 0x124 bugchecks can actually be caused by software.

Please create a system restore point before enabling Driver Verifier as it can make your system unbootable, even in safe mode

System Restore Point - Create

Alright!

What do you mean by unbootable...

As in windows will not start without getting a blue screen.
If that happens you can revert to the restore point you created earlier.
