Windows 7: BSOD after fresh install

02 May 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
BSOD after fresh install

I was instructed by the PC shop to re-install windows 7 after they were unable to find any hardware problems which were causing my system to BSOD or randomly reboot.

Today I did a fresh install of Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, Office 2010 and install all important security updates. Within hrs of completing the installation my system has BSOD twice, for different reasons each time.

I would like some ammunition before heading back to the PC shop.

Any help in resolving this would be great.

Uploading dump collection for both crashes.

Also uploaded windows debug output.

There is a high probability that your CPU is defective, are you overlocking?
Dumps directly blame a hardware fault in your CPU, i would recommend that you replace it
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

information   Information
Go to your motherboard's website and check your version of your BIOS. See if there are any problems you are having that are solved by a a later version. I do not often recommend flashing the BIOS because there is a risk involved. If there is problem addressed by a BIOS that applies to your computer, consider flashing your BIOS to the latest version. If you choose to do this, flash you BIOS outside of Windows.

Run Prime 95 again to test your CPU and your ram. Carefully the instructions in this tutorial:
CPU - Stress Test with Prime95. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs). Post back with your results.

No I am not over clocking

I have updated the BIOS and started to run the test but the CPU temperature went up to around 100c so I stopped the test.

Do you recommend running the test if the temperature goes this high?

The CPU temperature is most likely an indication of what your problem actually is -- overheating temps. Your CPU can supposedly operate safely at 90C, but even that, I'd be hesitant. Take off your CPU cooler and apply some Arctic Silver or similar paste. You may also invest in an aftermarket CPU cooler.

Also ensure no dust has built up in the case, blocking air filters and clogging heat sinks. Use a can of compressed air as necessary, but avoid the vacuum cleaner.

Make sure you clean |carefully| the old thermal paste from your CPU and the base of your cooler.
