Windows 7: STOP: 0x124 BSOD in Win7 Pro 64bit

Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
STOP: 0x124 BSOD in Win7 Pro 64bit

Ever since I installed Windows 7 a month ago, I have been plagued by blue-screen errors. They are all of the 0x124 variety. I googled it, and it said that these are often due to sound drivers conflicting with video drivers. I updated all of them, but no luck. My specs are in my profile, and I'll post a link to my bug report as soon as possible.

While waiting for some of our members that are somewhat expert in deciphering this sort of thing, you might want to give this a read,

This is unrelated, but just to make sure:
My motherboard is a cheap bargain brand (And i think I'm getting what I paid for) and they don't have windows 7 drivers available. Will vista drivers be compatible?

Most (but not all) Vista drivers will work (in some fashion).
But, there's no guarantees that they'll do everything and won't cause problems.

We'll get your system to be as stable as we can.
Could you please post the dump file at another free hosting service - rapidshare won't let me download any more stuff.

Please check through the following guide to see if you can do any of it - in particular setting your system for minidumps:
Upload Dump Files:
Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service - then post the link to it.
Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): Set MiniDump
As stormy13 states, the link above is the best bet for making problems go away. The STOP 0x124 error is a hardware problem that your CPU has reported to Windows. The information that it gives is difficult to decipher, and the results don't give detailed specifics.

Basically, it's either a hardware problem causing this, a compatibility issue (hardware or driver), or a corrupted driver (some analysts disagree with the last one).
