BSOD when playing games

Hello!
I get a BSOD when playing games, which I believed to be due to overheating, only really occurring after playing games like Sid Meier's Civilization V or Company of Heroes for long periods of time. But now it happens after playing Hotline Miami or Don't Starve for a little under an hour. My PC is rather old and not the best so I usually do run everything at the lowest graphical settings. I run all my games through Steam if that matters. Error 0x00000124. Thanks in advanced.

Check Toshiba for driver and BIOS updates, I recommend to reinstall drivers that are already up to date to remove corrupted drivers.
