BSOD while using Youtube, 0x124

Hello, i been having this annoying problem for a few weeks now.

My pc freez when i play something from Youtube, and sometimes it just crash (but that was very rare, maybe once or twice)

Now, i run prime95 for 20min with no crash, playing Dota 2 regulary with no problems what so ever...

But when i even watch something on YT it freezes after few min.

I read that 0x124 is HW error something to do with windows kernel, but i have no idea how to fix it.

Worth to mention, last month i upgraded to 64bit Win 7, on my previous system which was Win 7 32bit i didn't have this problem.

Hello, DrZoidbergYU. I will try to help you. All of your dump files ate a code 0X124. An 0X124 is a generic hardware error meaning some piece of hardware is failing/failed or a bad driver is causing a piece of hardware to act as though it is failing. But, it gives no indication of which piece of hardware is involved. So, it is important for us to be aware of each component in your computer as detailed as possible including Manufacturer and model. This should help you to determine that.

Please fill out your System Specs

information   Information
Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs


Also, please uninstall Dameon Tools. They are a known cause of BSODs. Also, please go to you tube, right click on the video and disable Hardware acceleration. This will help you to uninstall completely Dameon Tools.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause of BSOD's.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
- Double click the executable to open it
- Click the button shown below



If the button it is grayed out, as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can just close the window.


Also, Please open an elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Please let us know the outcome of these tests and if your problem improves.

Hello, and thank you for your help.

Frist off, dont worry about daemon tools, they are without SPTD driver. And i installed deamon as soon i reinstalled Windows. This error occured after that.

I tough my specs were in info file.
I will fill my specs tomorrow, but my pc is old and if very bad shape, my coponents are in working order.
My biggest doubt is realtek audio driver, because i reverted to some older version because i thought it caused lag in game i was playing (CitiesSkyline), but, it was just because my computer is very outdated, game is new and not very well optimized.
Then it gradually begin to show sign of effect in form it just freez.
My computer just freezes and audio keeps on going.

DrZoidbergYU, It is my job to worry about Dameon Tools. I believe it is prudent when troubleshooting a computer that is having BSODs to remove all known causes of BSODs. I would think that is a logical approach.

If all you are concerned about is the audio driver, why not install the correct one.

I know, i didn't mean it as insult, just to supply all the known information about my system as possible beyond what is, my suspicion is on audio driver, but, it could be Nvidia, because it have been acting lazy.

My system temp. are normal, cpu/gpu/sb/nb.

My system is OC, but it have been for years, without any problem, and when reverted to its original state it shows same deffect, which leads me to belive its some kind of driver error, because my older 32bit Windows was in much worst shape, and hardware was all dusty and stuff. With this new clean instal of 64bit Win, all hell broke lose.

DrZoidbergYU, it is almost impossible to debug an overclocked system. I am quite familiar with overclocking, and know all the pitfalls. I also know that any time I have stability issues I always set it back to stock levels until I get the system stable. The one think I know for certain about overclocking is if your system is not stable at stock levels, you will never have a stable overclock. If you are having stability issues at stock levels, overclocking will just compound the problems.

I updated my system specs as instructed.

I run sfc /scannow with following results

Quote:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

C:\Windows\system32>
Do you think i should try and use Microsoft driver update tool you provided in post before ?

DrZoidbergYU, You have a Retail MSI Motherboard. Your Operating System is an OEM_SLP key from Acer/HP/Gateway. It is not legal on any computer other than the one it came from the factory installed on. The only way it can be Activated is with an exploit that alters system files.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analyzing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimize the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a Genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them

It is from my old laptop, it came with it, and i don't have any other. It does not affect system operation in any way, shape or form.

But if that is countering with your believes, nothing i can do to prove you other wise.

It is not my beliefs. It is Microsoft's Licensing Agreement. It is only legal on the computer it came installed on. It is against Forum Rules to assist with illegal software.
