Windows 7: BSOD when running Netflix or youtube

BSOD when running Netflix or youtube

I have been trying to help out a friend with his computer which runs fine except when on Netflix or you tube because it yields BSOD 0x00000124 error after a few minutes. The computer is an HP Slimline s3700y with an AMD Athalon X2 64 3 Gig ram, and a Asus m2n61-AR motherboard. I have replaced the Hard drive due to numerous chkdsk scans on start, and PC Tools flagged it as bad. So the computer has a clean install of Windows 7 32 bit and still yields the same error. I have also changed the thermal paste, disabled the on board video card and installed a new video card, and even changed out the RAM to no avail. I am left with power supply, CPU, and motherboard, but PC Tools says all 3 test good.

I have attached the dump files to this post.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Note that this test may overheat the CPU, ensure proper cooling.

Prime 95 ran for over two hours without any errors or workers shutting down, and memtest86 tested good as well.
