Windows 7: BSOD when opening certain games - (CS:GO/Portal2/DiRT)

BSOD when opening certain games - (CS:GO/Portal2/DiRT)

I have recently been having numerous issues booting up a few games, I get to a loading screen before my computer blue screens and reboots.

This is rather irritating, especially as I can't boot up games I have recently purchased.
None the less all assistance would be much appreciated.

Thank-you for reading.

Here is information on the error:

On Sat 15/09/2012 22:15:03 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\091512-25537-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x4B09CC)
Bugcheck code: 0x124 (0x0, 0xFFFFFA8008440548, 0x0, 0x0)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

If any more information is needed please tell me I will do my best.

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Best link for this problem, follow through with most of which you can. Also, i used to have a similar problem. Mine was fixed by vacumming dust out of the system, even though there was like none there it worked somehow. Wish the best of luck.

Yeah the 124 stop specifically pretty much means bad overclock or bad hardware.
I've not seen that particular one caused by anything else.
