Windows 7: Couldn't boot up PC, replaced HD and now get 0x000000124 error

Couldn't boot up PC, replaced HD and now get 0x000000124 error

My PC recently would not boot up. Even in repair it would freeze, reinstalling windows did not help and eventually anything I loaded whether repair, setup of windows or straight boot into the OS would result in a BSOD error. I replaced HD and was able to boot in finally and reinstall windows.

Everything was fine then I got one new BSOD which was 0x000000124 and my PC rebooted. I googled this and it showed general hardware failure but I can not identify the issue.

I ran Hard drive test even though I just replaced it, no problems, ran memtest over night and got 8 passes with no errors. I can't seem to find which hard ware is failing if thats the issue..

Any suggestions?

Firstly, what are your system specs?

Also, please download this app called WhoCrashed to analyze your crash dump files: WhoCrashed: Free Crash Dump Analyzer for Windows - The Winhelponline Blog

I had this issue with a system at work that happened to be the presentation PC for our meetings. It would randomly crash and restart in the middle of the powerpoint presentation, quite frustrating for everyone of course. I ran this and was able to determine the cause was a driver fault with the display driver. Post your output when you run it and we can dig deeper.
