Windows 7: BSOD 0x00000124

05 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD 0x00000124

Hello all,

A friend of mine is having some issues with his computer. I've asked for help on other forums, but they can't seem to help..

I'll try to make it as short as possible, here goes!

My friend bought a computer 2 years ago, with the following specs:
Intel Core2Duo E8500
Mushkin DDR2 PC2-800

After 1 year, the computer started doing BSOD's with the errorcode, 0x00000124.
I've read on several forums for a solution (including this one), but it doesn't seem to help.
He had Windows Vista installed, so we figured it would be a good idea to format the computer. No problem occured while formatting, but we haven't been able to install windows again. Every time we try, he gets a 0x00000124 BSOD, and I have no idea what to do now. I've tried to help him for 4 months, no luck.

I've tried switching his rams around, and using only 1 block
I've tried adding new coolingpaste for his CPU.
I've tried clearing CMOS and cleaned his PC for dust etc.
Etc. etc. etc...

I've added this picture for you to look at. It's his PC Health Status.

I have no idea if those are the right values for his components.

I hope you guys can help us out, and please ask for any additional info you might require.

Yours sincerely, Thomas

Windows 10 64 bit

Doing a google search this appears to be almost anything can cause this. Motherboard, CPU, Memory, etc.

If we had the actual PC Manufacturer and Model Number, we can look it up and maybe come up with something more that "the anything" potential.

Looking at the picture I see an option for "Chassis Intrusion" and that is on many Dell commercial line Optiplex models, could this be a Dell? (But not a GX280 with the CPU that is installed).

It's not a dell computer He bought all the components and had it build

I don't really know what to do. Most of the solutions i've read, requires the user to go into windows, but we can't even get past 7% at the installation setup.

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .. A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. You can read more on this error and what to try here... Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
