Windows 7: BSOD 0x00000124

BSOD 0x00000124

My Girlfriend has recently bought a reconditioned laptop from PC worlds clearance store and it is getting the BSOD and a fuzzy screen (see attachments). I can't say that I have noticed any particular pattern with the blue screen but the fuzzy screen seems to happen every time I try to go on youtube and also randomly when idle.
Since I started to write this post on my other computer the laptop seems to refuse to blue screen all I can get is the fuzzy screen.

What I did manage to write down from my BS errors is:
0x0000124
0xFFFFFA8004CAD038
0x00000000F60020000
0x000000000000017A
0x0000000000000000

Its a Toshiba Satalite l450D-128
AMD Athlon Dual-Core QL-64 2.1Ghz
4Gb Ram

I have the same laptop so I have tried substituting the ram and hard drive but it still blue screens and I have stressed the CPU and it actually stayed on for 6+ hours (longest yet) I also tried testing the ram but it wont stay on long enough for the test to complete.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks
Dan

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.

Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

Thanks For the reply, I have updated the drivers for the Graphics Chip (ATI Radeon HD3200) but I am still getting the BS. I've found that if I boot with safe mode I can watch about 20Sec of a youtube video before it freezes, but if it is booted normally the youtube homepage freezes it. It still bluescreens while doing simple things as well but just takes longer (Youtube just tells me instantly).

* I have downloaded CoreTemp and it reads normal/lower than my laptop.
* The bios is up to date
* I dont think its over clocked as I just bought it, how would i check?
* It cant be the HDD or RAM as I have swapped with known good components
* Also tried turning off the screen and running it with just the HDMI but the same problem occurred

Any other Ideas would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks again,
Dan

If it still BSOD's in safe mode it probably isnt a driver as most arent loaded in safe mode. gut feeling is hardware.


Just to be sure can you run a system file check to verify the OS

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

It may need to be run up to three times before sucessful

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.
