Windows 7: BSOD At random times - WHEA Error

14 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 x64 Home Premium
BSOD At random times - WHEA Error

My Windows 7 Is. . .
- x64
- I built the system myself, installed from the Windows 7 DVD
- Full Retail Version

- What is the age of system (hardware)?
The age of my system is very new. Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition CPU running OC'd at 3.6 GHz. (Ran the Prime95 stress test for a few hours and it didn't crash), GTX 560 Ti just recently purchased, ASUS M4N98TD EVO Mobo recently purchased too. 2x2 (4GB) (Kingston ram I think, I can get the details if needed) that is about 1 year old (FYI I ran MemCheck and let it go through a few passes and it encountered no errors), PSU is an ANTEC 650 Watts and is about 1 year old as well, and I have a 1 TB SATA HDD that is also about a year old.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?)
Yes, about 1 month ago. Had issues with a new mobo that I had to return so I could get the one I currently have. Had to reinstall a couple of times before I reverted back to my old ASROCK mobo before I got my new ASUS one.

My Notes:
No clue why the system is crashing. Crashes with or without the system OC'd. All drivers are up to date, and I'm using no external hardware (such as a mouse or keyboard) that is very old either. Thanks for any and all help.

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

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.
