Windows 7: BSOD with 0x00000124

BSOD with 0x00000124

Halp!

I have a recurrent BSOD, and it hits when my PC is just on the desktop doing nothing really. I think something might be up with the CPU but I've stress tested with Prime95 (ran ok for c.5 hours), and the temps are fine according to Speedfan. I can't seem to get the Windows debugger to download so I've not really be able to examine it in much detail but I've attached files below.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated

Edit: Got Windows Debugger to work... It says:

BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa800ee9a028, be000000, 800400}
Probably caused by : GenuineIntel
Followup: MachineOwner

hmm... everything points to the processor, run the stress test again just to make sure, there tests can often make mistakes and say that faulty hardwre is fine.

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate the help.

I've run Prime95 for 5 hours this morning, and everything has come back ok, all four workers have a happy face and the temperature has not gone above 40.5C.

I'm worried it might be a power issue as I've read somewhere this can be a problem. It's only happened when the system is idle, so could it be power management issues?

The only hardware change I've had in the last two months was swapping out the PSU as its fan died, and I replaced it with a Corsair CX750, which should be ample. My CPU voltages all look ok (except one is 0.93V, is that low?)

When I got the PC it should have been built with the i5 3570K overclocked to up to 4.5Ghz. I've looked in my BIOS to see if I need to adjust this back to normal but I can't find anything that looks like overclocking to reset. That said, I'm like a monkey looking at blueprints for a nuclear sub where BIOS is concerned. Is there anything to look out for?

Thanks again,
Minty

Not wanting to start a duplicate thread , I have also had and BCCode 124. I have had a look at the dump files , finger points towards CPU. Ran the Prime 95 and in less than a 30 secs up to 70c , according to speed fan ,so I stopped the test as I have never seen it that high temp under load.

Only stock cooling as never intended to have the PC under heavy load or OC it and until now has been cool, part of the reason I got the Haswell CPU was because they run cooler. The PC is clean and all fans are working as usual, ambient temp in room around 20c. When the 124 happened I was getting over 150 fps in AC Brotherhood so I doubt it was under demand at the time.

saturday, can you please start a new thread and I will find you there later, CaptMinty,that kind of drop is normal when your system is idle, this could be a matter of the processor's compatability with the motherboard, check the processor online and see if it is compatible with your motherboard

Yep, I've checked and my motherboard and processor should be fine. There does not seem to be any simple option. If it is just happening when its idle is it something I can ignore or will it get worse? Or is there anything else I can do to identify it? Any potential solutions? Getting desperate...
