Windows 7: Windows 7 random blue screens qui

Windows 7 random blue screens qui

Hi,
Normally when i get a blue screen i simply assume 'memory' straight away and by process of elimination just find the faulty stick then remove/replace. This process is painstaking enough as i have to remove, test, remove, test... I have done that with every stick of memory and i still seem to be getting the blue screen like every hour or so. I have even tried replacing every single component including graphics card and still no luck.
Is there any way i can drill down as to what exactly is causing the problem?

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

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

Thanks for that info, to be honest im starting to think its either windows or my actual hard drive. Last night after all the crashes it prompted updates which then rebooted my machine and entered disc scan check itself. After the check (i wasnt around to see if there were disc errors) it entered some very bizarre account where all of my desktop icons disappeared and my pinned taskbar applications were missing too + graphical interface was off. I then restarted my machine again and everything went back to normal (i.e. desktop reappeared with graphics).
Now i havent received a blue screen yet however firefox has crashed twice randomly.
