Windows 7: Random, Infrequent BSOD

Random, Infrequent BSOD

I have been having seemingly random blue screens for the past several months. Once one happens, I generally do not see another for at least a few days. It does not seem to be linked to stress on the system as I have had them occur both while the system is practically idle (browsing in chrome), as well as during resource intensive games.

I've monitored my temperatures during normal use as well as during stress testing with Prime95/FurMark and they are well within normal ranges so I don't believe that to be a cause. I've tried everything I can think of - from updating drivers to reseating the hardware - and at this point I don't know what else to do. I have attached the zip file as listed in the posting instructions.

Thanks in advance for any help given!

0x124's are typically related to a hardware issue and can only be isolated by stress testing the major components.

If overclocking, reset all overclocks back to their default settings and then follow these:

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

CPU - run the HIGH test
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

Video - run the FURMARK test for 20mins
Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Storage - run the SHORT test using the DOS version

Thanks you for the quick reply.

I just finished running the last of the tests that you suggested, and none of them revealed any problems. Memtest ran through all 8 passes with 0 errors, SeaTools passed both of my hard drives, IntelBurnTest indicated that my CPU is stable, and FurMark did not seem to encounter any problems while being run for close to 30 minutes.

I have attached the GPU-Z Sensor log as well as pictures of the results of the various tests in case there is something I missed which might allow you to shed some light on the cause of the blue screens.

Please do the following:

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

I followed the instructions and got a BSOD after restarting. I tried a few more times before disabling driver verifier in safe mode, and got a blue screen every time. I have attached the only dmp file that was generated.

See if there is an updated driver for DVDFab, and install it. If not, uninstall this software and re-run driver verifier.

I did not see an update for it, so I went ahead and uninstalled. I ran driver-verifier again and got a little farther (past the log in screen) before getting another blue screen. The blue screen listed rzpmgrk.sys as the cause, but hopefully that's not the root issue as it is linked to my mouse/keyboard and should be up to date. The most recent dmp file is attached.

I could not find a way to update that driver individually. Razer manages all of their drivers through a single piece of software (synapse). I removed the software and all of the drivers, and downloaded the most recent available version from their website. I ran driver verifier again and got the same blue screen.

I'm not sure where to go from here. I do have other keyboards I could use, but all my mice from the last several years are from the same company.

I really appreciate all the help you've given me so far.
