Windows 7: BSOD after login

21 Jul 2012   #1

MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
BSOD after login

Hey Guys!

I have been having random freezes with my home build since I finished it. It has progressively gotten worse over the last few months and I am looking for some help.

There is no common denominator with it either. I have done a "Clean Boot" with it as well and that made them slow down so I can attempt to fix the problem but typically come after about 20-25 minutes. This happens during idle time as well.

I have tested each component individually and just replaced my MOBO with the exact same one with no success.

Attached is the zip file.

Hoping for some assistance! Thank you!

Windows 8.1 Pro x64

SBRE ROOT\LEGACY_SBRE\0000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
This means it is a graphics issue, and the graphics drivers should be re-installed.

BugCheck 0x124
You have a 0x124 hardware bugcheck. If the system is still under warranty, I would recommend sending it in to have diagnostic tests done and any bad hardware replaced.

warning   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

For your hardware stop 0x124 crash, read through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following hardware checks to supplement that link.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:
    • SSD firmware
    • BIOS Version
    • Chipset Drivers
    • Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
    • If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

  • Run all but the advanced tests with SeaTools for HDDs.
    SeaTools for Windows

    SeaTools for DOS
  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Remember to read closely through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try for the crash.

I have done everything you stated with a clean bill of health, so to speak.

Curious thing is I received no BAPS or freezing issues running the Prime95 or Stress teSt. I did however run into it during the benchmark testing.

I did forget to mention that I have been having some cache hierarchy errors on core 1 and 0 since I built it.

Would a fresh install of Windows help at all or is it a hardware deal?

Are you overclocking?

If you would like to make a fresh install, then:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

To better advise you, then a filled out set of System Specs would be helpful.

Please use this procedure (read carefully).

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the Other Info block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

After you complete that then:

I need you to run a one-line powershell script.

WIN key | type POWERSHELL | do NOT hit ENTER |
in the PROGRAMS list, right-click on WINDOWS POWERSHELL |
choose "Run as administrator" |
Click on the YES button (if such appears)

COPY the script using CTRL+C,
PASTE into Powershell
---Right-Click at the PowerShell Prompt
---(Ctrl+V does not work)

WIN key = key with Microsoft logo on top

Here's the one-liner:
gwmi Win32_BIOS > $env:userprofile\Desktop\biosinfo.txt

That put a file on your desktop. Please attach that biosinfo.txt file to your next post.

Your bios is far out-of-date and furthermore is a beta version.

Go to this website:
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download SABERTOOTH 990FX

Download the manual for your mobo.
Read the manual, paying special attention to any instructions regarding updating your bios.

There is also a bios utility for "flashing" the bios with a dos program. Look near the bottom of the page for which I gave a link at bios utility.

Since your bios is old, you should get all of the updates there and install them. Of most importance is the chipset driver.

If your manual mentions anything about EZ-Flash, then here is how the asus techs update your bios. This is the procedure I use with my Asus netbook;


Download the latest bios for your desktop/laptop/netbook for the ASUS website
Format a USB memory stick (or a floppy).
You must use FAT and NOT FAT32
Rename the downloaded file to a DOS-compatible 8.3 name.
For example, rename to 1004.ROM for version 1004.
The extension MUST BE ROM
Copy the renamed file to the media you formatted with FAT
Shutdown your desktop/laptop/netbook.
Insertthe USB stick (or floppy) if you removed such.
Power ON your desktop/laptop/netbook
Immediately! Hold down the ALT key and tap continuously the F2 key
EZ-FLASH(the built-in bios-burn program) will start
Stop tapping F2
Release the ALT key
Read, and follow, the instructions on your display.
Congratulations, youve updated your BIOS!
Now, and only now Turn off your ASUS
Hold Power Off / Power On button down for at least 5 seconds

I ran both Memtest86+ and Seatools for DOS with no errors...

Is it normal that I can run Prime95 for hours with no BSOD or freezing issues but the minute I stop running it, they occur?
