Windows 7: BSODs while doing anything. Mostly 3B.

I have stress tested the GPU and everything went accordingly. I have run the basic stress test for the CPU and I got one error. I did ask what I could do in order to provide the required information, but an answer wasn't given. I have run dm log collector several times with administrative rights and each file that I give isn't enough. I don't know why, part of the reason why I'm here. I will attach the gpu error file.Attachment 330291

Code:
[Sat Aug 23 17:37:43 2014]
FATAL ERROR: Final result was 2EB1EEF8, expected: C508CAFA.
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Quitting GIMPS.
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
I think it is the CPU test result?

Will suggest you to take two more tests.

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

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Also, 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 .

For the time being, let us forget about the files and concentrate on hardware tests. From the log that you have attached, it seems that we are very close to a conclusion.

My video card is extremely old, it can't hold up the GPU test, but I have no problem with it overall. I ran it for 15 minutes and there were no errors, overheating or artifacts.
I did yet another GPU test, a longer one, and I will upload the attachmentAttachment 330300
This is my overall heat. I have an additional external cooler to the laptop http://speccy.piriform.com/results/7...EHBGo5XVspxMEq

Sorry, I am a bit confused. It cannot hold up the stress test, but no errors, overheating and artifacts? Is not it contradictory? Please clarify.

Same as the previous run.
Code:
FATAL ERROR: Final result was 2EB1EEF8, expected: C508CAFA.
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
Quitting GIMPS.
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.

Self-test 640K passed!
FATAL ERROR: Final result was 7D4EAE17, expected: A6A509A6.
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
But before blaming the hardware, I want you do one more thing. Stating it below.

The system is overheating, apparently.

You need to control the heat. Open the computer. Clean the inside very carefully, without breaking anything. Clean all the air vents and fan grills so the it can blow the hot air out efficiently.

While re-seating the computer, apply new thermal paste to the CPU.



It will reduce the temperature down. When done, take both the CPU and GPU stress tests again. See how those go. Let us know the results.

Cleaning up and applying new thermal paste is your first priority. Do it as soon as possible. If you cannot do it, get it done.

No more troubleshooting is required before the temperature is reduced.

I applied the thermal paste. Nothing changed. The temperature is overall lower, from what I can see, but that's all. The 124 error is still here. Also BSOD 0A is here.

Well, then based on the test results I would suggest you to replace the CPU.

Before we resort to that, could we check other things?

The link, yet again, lovely. I did try everything on the list. I'll mark this as solved as I know it won't be solved anytime soon, or ever.
