Windows 7: BSoD 0x00000124, can happen anytime

BSoD 0x00000124, can happen anytime

Lately I've been experiencing BSoD of 0x00000124 and it can happen anytime. It has happened when I was playing World of Warcraft. It has happened when I was using browser. It has happened when I was playing Solitaire. It has happened when the computer is idling and I am away. It usually happens only once within 15 minutes of cold starting my computer and almost never comes back until I shut down the PC. It is very annoying.

Earlier I did find oddities, Windows 7 claimed that HP would be interested but my computer was not HP made and only had HP printer driver, nothing else. It seems at one time Windows automatically replaced EVGA motherboard driver for PCIe system with what Windows thought was "optimal" driver: HP driver which used to result in 0x125 BSoD. I exorcised the offending driver and forced the version from EVGA, that stopped 125 but now I am getting 124.

I have used the motherboard jumper to disable one of 2 CPU. Then i switched the CPU. I am still getting BSoD on both CPU, which seems to rule out faulty CPU or memory sticks (both are separate banks connected to active CPU). I have also used the jumper to disable one of the 2 PCIe slots connected to one of the 2 video cards. Then I switched it, I'm still getting BSoD on either video cards.

I am using Silverstone 1500w power supply and by my computation, at 100% usage of both CPU and video cards I would be using at most under 1,000w total. The CPU and GPU are not overclocked at all. The hottest I've gotten is about 5-10F above ambient air thanks to excellent cooling system and a few high performance Delta 120mm fans. (I'm deaf so noise doesn't bother me ) On a 90-degree days the CPU usually peaks at around 100-105F (38-41C) The GPU usually runs a bit closer to 175F, which is expected and still under the max rating.

Included is the last dump

Hmmm great overwhelming responses. Unfortunately I never got useful suggestion on repairing or stopping the error code.

Still waiting for someone to come forward and prove this forum isn't dead.

That's probably not the best way to get help here. Remember, people here are volunteers who give up their own time to help people.

That said, did you try a search on this forum before you posted?

This problem has been posted here before... BSOD: STOP: 0x00000124

and here.. BSOD 0x00000124

There are several others.

Check out those posts and if your problem is still not resolved, try posting back

Thank you for the fast response! So it could be my CPU. Since I used jumper to disable one CPU, then switch CPU and both separately gave me BSoD, maybe the motherboard is the problem?

I don't have any socket 1366 board (single socket or dual) to test with so it's a shot in the dark but something for me to work with.
