Windows 7: BSOD - 0x000000124

23 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
BSOD - error 0x00000124 (GPU running at 82-85C constant)

Now, just 3 days ago It started the BSOD issue.

I realize that my GPU was the cause of this issue. When playing games or open 3d applications the temp goes 30C to 72C (In 15 seconds) then 82C - 85C constant (in about 30 seconds).

Now I've been using MSI afterburner to check my temps and at fulload my GPU will be at 62-72C max temperature but now it's 10C even higher then before. No, I haven't fiddled with the voltage I set the GPU voltage to 1.037v which is the safest (been running this almost 8 months!). The GPU is the GTX 560ti.

Is there a way to set the GPU on default settings or reset GPU settings in cmd or other professional way. I have uninstalled the drivers, uninstalling GPU, disabled GPU, disabled PCI-E slot and so on by using device manager and the issue still persist.

Yes, I also have clean the GPU perfectly and still the temperature goes up to 82 seconds at 30seconds-45seconds. Yes, I have checked everything is set correctly and so on, I am a PC Tech.

Is the GPU damaged?

Yes I have looked at this thread:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Mainly, I know its the GPU straight away, I tried checking old drivers, new drivers, another GPU overclocked software such as GPU tweak and EVGA Precision. I am thinking it's the GPU is damaged or the PCI-E is damaged (I have another PCI-E slot on my system and the issue still there). It might be the PCI-E frequency? but it's set to 100 which it meant to be, I just hope is software related because I don't have the money to buy a new card. Did the dump files help?

Edit: Just upload the SF zip file

Help in advance!

Welcome aboard. First of all, you should install the service pack 1.

Your crash is stop0x124, totally caused by hardware. In such a situation, it is best to follow the guide Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try by H2SO4.

No I can't sorry because the method I used will cause the HDD, CPU, Motherboard or GPU to malfunction. I was very lucky, now the GPU is reset back to original settings (max temperature at 72C). Let's just say I was changing the BIOS settings and increased the voltage (Which forced the system to shut down and clear CMOS). I used the CMOS jumper but no luck so I used the above method and everything is fine.
