Windows 7: Locked up while playing Creatures 3

04 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Locked up while playing Creatures 3

I've had my computer and it's been blue-screening and locking up for months now. I've tried updating my drivers, and that helped reduce the crashing. It locked up earlier today, and all that was running was Opera, a game(Creatures 3), and an editor for that game. In most crashes Opera has been running, but it runs fine with most of my games, and on its own. Plus I've used Opera on my laptop for years now. I also don't overclock it.

Was always windows 7
Came pre-installed on my system
Bought the system on Black Friday
haven't re-installed OS

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.

YouTube locked up computer while playing video
Hard lockup, no BSOD, nothing. Reset it by hard reboot (power button), and it went into Windows Startup Repair. I don't know what the error was, because nothing went wrong. Somoene please help!
