Windows 7: BSOD in most games after installing new GPU

BSOD in most games after installing new GPU

I've been having this problem for a couple months now and in almost every game I play, anywhere between 1-6 hours of consecutive play, my computer locks up and I'm presented with the infamous BSOD. I've tried to enable dump files for the crash, however no files have appears, even after multiple crashes. I'd like some help figuring this out, and the lack of dump files has left me stumped on what to do next.
I've even re-installed my OS in hopes to restore order, which did not work.

Don't bump - it has the opposite effect, it will place it at the bottom of the list.

I'll look at this in the next 10 minutes.

Andrew,

Are you using Ccleaner or other optimisers on a regular basis? Running these causes the .dmp files to be deleted, which is why they aren't present in C:\Windows\Minidump

Do you recall the bugcheck code that was displayed at the time of BSOD? Without the .dmp files, the only thing I can suggest is to uninstall this tool (which is a very common cause of BSOD's):
Code:
DAEMON Tools Lite	"c:\program files (x86)\daemon tools lite\dtlite.exe" -autorun	JINX\Andrew	HKU\S-1-5-21-2850683096-181325466-2443321536-1000\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Lets see if we can force the system to BSOD again. Temporarily uninstall Ccleaner, or change its settings, then follow these instructions please:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

Once the system BSOD's, upload the files here and I'll have a look at them again.

Sorry about the bump.

I do not have Ccleaner installed, I only have AVG right now. I'll do what you suggested.

I just remembered the code, it was 0x0000124, I don't know if the number of zeros are correct but I do remember the last three numbers being 124.

0x124's are hardware errors. You need to stress test the major components using these:

RAM : run a minimum of 8 passes
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

CPU :
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

VIDEO: run for 30 mins
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark and also
Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose
