BSOD 124 & 121 randomly after Win7 Update. Crash files included.

I have a BSOD 124, and 101 (Not 121). Intel 4790k, 32gb of Corsair Dominator Platinium, Corsair h100i, Corsair 540 air, 1200 watt corsair PSU, Dual 780ti SLI, Z97-A asus Mobo. This came completely out of the blue. I suspect the newest windows update may be the culprit. Nothing triggers these crashes. It'll run beautifully with BF4 and Dying light on Ultra for 8+ hours... but when I turn it on again, I'll end up locked out with no crash. Or, I'll have a freeze, then BSOD. But the drivers ID'd by my third party software are saying that HAL.DLL, ndis.sys, and ntoskrnl.exe are flagging. Each crash report also ID's Genuineintel. Tried everything so far, windows repair, all drivers updated, all physical connections checked, re-seated every component, flashed bios, etc. I also re-did my thermal paste, and my CPU is idling between 30-33C. However, it will randomly jump to 40C. I'm pretty computer literate, but very much so out of ideas at this point. I'd like to avoid reinstalling Windows 7 Home edition premium if possible. I have all the crash reports available, and I will be monitoring this closely for replies. Thank you very much in advance for any and all suggestions/help! Also, yes my computer has an incredibly silly name due to a friend helping me name it.

0x124s are usually generic STOP codes pointing to a hardware failure although they rarely tell you which hardware is failing. Lately we've seen ESET causing 0x124s so I think it would be best to follow the steps below then test the system.

Uninstall ESET and Install MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes.

Note   Note
Make sure you uncheck the 'Enable Free Trial' box when installing.



Uninstall Daemon Tools, a proven cause of BSODs.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools via Add/Remove Programs.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and perform the following steps.
3. Double click the executable to open it.
4. Click the button shown below.



information   Information
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.


Uninstall all of the ASUS bloatware on your system bar AI Suite.

Test the system and report back.

Sounds good. Did you run all of the stress and diagnostic tests?
