BSOD occasionally, BCCODE 124, often while tabbed out of games

Hello,

I've had few BSODs in the last days and I am not sure where its from. Maybe you guys could have a look. I have the feeling they often happen while being tabbed out of games. My drivers should be all up to date since I reinstalled Windows 2 months ago. And the frequently changing ones like graphics drivers are updated regularly.

Hope you guys can help me.

 RAM TEST

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Help Forums

Note   Note


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

Make a photo of the result and post it please.

Addition:
If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.
