Windows 7: BSOD while 3D gaming, Stop 0x00000124

Thanks again for going the extra mile!

I'm at work now, but when I get home tonight I'll run through these tests and post the results. However, I can eliminate one possibility now. According to the wattage calculator I'm drawing 332 watts, and it recommends a power supply of at least 382 watts. The system is running a 750 watt psu. That shouldn't be the issue, unless the hardware failure is in the power supply.

I'll check what version of BIOS I'm running as well, and compare it to the available updates. Although I'm not seeing any new updates since almost exactly 2 years ago, I'm not sure when was the last time I updated BIOS. It'd be really nice if that was the solution.

I'll post again later tonight. Thanks again for your persistent help.

According to the website the most recent version is 1605. Should I update my BIOS before stress-testing the other system components?

Yes, do it.

I cannot check it myself, because http://www.asus.com/in/Motherboards/M5A97/ results a blank page for me.

Just a quick update...

I updated my motherboard firmware to 1605 yesterday. I've got to say that updating firmware has come a long way from the early days. The tools provided made it easy and painless.

I played the game that triggered issues before (Civilization: Beyond Earth) for a few hours, and didn't get a single blue screen. I'm not ready to mark this "solved" just yet. I'll test it more extensively tonight. But this is looking pretty promising.

Observe the situation for at lease a week. If it BSODs in the mean time, post it.
