Windows 7: BSOD 0x00000124 random times

BSOD 0x00000124 random times

I have had a lot of issues lately with BSOD crashes.

This is currently happening 4-5 times a day.

I was gone out of town for a few days and when I came back it had a crash error of hardware.
Restarted PC and a few hours later it crashed the same again.

I have had it happen before when I had memory managment crashes but this was never resolved with same setup.

Here is what have tried to fix or troubleshoot the issue.
Turned off any overclocking of processor or ram.
Checked all cards to make sure they are seated correctly.
Ran virus scans on software.
Removed Dimms out one at a time until crashing happened.
Cleared any dust that may of clogged fans..(minor dust only I clean regularly)

The last crash it seemed to be something with my motherboard , since it seemed to reset when I restarted. (restarted power and hesitated then had to restart again).

Any help with any thing I may of missed would be great.

Attached Hardware/software copy

Hi eracet,

Please remove items from the startup
How to remove items from startup - Windows 7 Help Forums
These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble.

Please check {windows partition}\windows\minidump and check if there are any (recent) dump files saved.
The zip is empty of dump files.
Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 7 tutorial

The boot process works ok. Seems to be at random.
Was better when I had one SDRAM removed, thinking I may have multiple SD that are bad.
Currently running half the ram 2 removed to see if it happens again. Going to do a memtest before bed and let it run all night and work day. See if any issues come back . Will put all ram in for test.

I did not see any windows minidump at all. and looks to be configured correctly. Not sure why it isnt creating a file. Looked at my other partitions and they have older ones, from previous windows but nothing current.

Surprisingly all RAM was ok after 19+ hours of running memtest86.
So now on to the next thing...

I doublechecked that small memory dump should record.. hopefully it does this time if it crashes again. So at least we can have a log to look at.

Disabled most of the background processes. Steam/ Aida / others/ to see if it still happens.

If it does happen again I will post minidump file .

Well disabled carbonite and killed most of the processes.

But did recieve another BS.
This time it was a different description.


A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval.

Good news is it created a dmp file.
Attached is the file.

Run chkdsk Disk Check
I run Hard Disk Sentinel and that shows most problems with HDD.
I have 6 HDDs, and 9 partitions. Some that run programs and some that just run windows. A few just for data (pictures, video)

I also have a new minidump that happened just after last reboot, same hardware error but logged now.

As I understood from some users, either this error or another similar error was being caused a lot by the PSU.
Please check your PSU for connection and the voltages.
Please check your BIOS for the 3.3v, 5v and 12v values.

Please note the temperatures of your CPU when idle and under load.
