Windows 7: BSOD with increasing freq, 0124

BSOD with increasing freq, 0124

Hello, I hope someone can help me with this.

I have a 2-3 yr old homebuilt system that has been largely error free til now. I am receiving BSOD's with increasing frequency. I have tried to trouble shoot it, but alas, no dice.

I received this:

STOP! 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000
0xFFFFFA800F467028
0x00000000BF800000
0x0000000000000114

and upon restarting got a detailed notice after another BSOD of

BCCode 124
BCP1 0000000000000000
BCP2 FFFFFA800F45Do28
BCP3 00000000BF800000
BCP4 0000000000000014

I have done the MS memory check with no reported problems. I have not downloaded memtest because I''m not sure the PC will stay on long enough. Ckdisk was fine this AM on the SDD and the HDD.

BIOS is original F8 and never overclocked. I haven't messed with it since build. It has the PU temp at 53 and system temp at 34. V Core at 1.104v and Dram V at 1.536 which from my research is in line with spec.


Research showed heat might be a problem, so I downloaded a core temp monitor, it had a max of 60 noted, but usually at 35 at idle. I have removed old paste, re-installed cooler, which is stock. All cables removed and reinserted, both memory sticks removed and replaced. All fans cleaned, and truly, dirt was minimal in the case.

I did a system restore as far back as I was able, no help.

I removed the only new program I had installed, a USB control program recommended by HP to make my printer be able to plug into the router to serve all users in the house. I have uninstalled that program, with no change.

Any ideas? I sure would appreciate some help. I have attached the dump file.Attachment 383218

From all the crashes, there is just a single dump. A single dump isn't enough for proper analysis
If you are using a program like Ccleaner stop using it while troubleshooting.
This because programs like Ccleaner remove dump files that are needed to troubleshoot.
Or configure Ccleaner to not remove dump files:

Thanks for that. I will close ccleaner and perform what parts of the other instructions I am able. Unfortunately if I try to do much, even in safe mode, it closes down with another blue screen. I can barely open a web page.

The basic definition of the 0x124 crash = hardware crash.
I recommend to start with the hard drive and memory tests, because they both can be performed in DOS.
Is your SSD firmware up to date?

I have relied on automatic updates, and when I first had problems and the pc was more stable, I was able to check that all drivers were up to date using the MS tool. I understand there are others that may be better, but I did not see that until I researched the problem more thoroughly. I did the memory test that comes up as part of the repair menu upon restart after a crash. It had no problems on the basic settings but only took about 40 minutes. I then, later, when the computer was less stable, I tested the ram again on the advanced setting and it only got 20 percent through before another BSOD presented. I also did a checkdisk on the SSD and the HDD which revealed no problems.

I really appreciate the help. I will do more tonight when back home with the machine. Hopefully back with more data later.

MemTest86+ cannot be completed within a few hours with your amount of memory and certainly cannot show a BSOD, please follow my suggestions carefully

Will do. I plan on letting it run overnight.

I don't know if it is diagnostic or not, but when I tried to run memtest86x I could get through the menu and set it to check all cpu's and all of the tests, but when I started the test it would freeze almost immediately. After 2 hrs it remained frozen. I could not even hit esc to get back to the test parameter screen.

It is a diagnostic test, but we usually lay off of the settings.
