Windows 7: Blue Screen 0x00000124 when playing games

25 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Blue Screen 0x00000124 when playing games

Hello. This is my first post in the forums, so I'm sorry if I made something wrong.

First of all, I know there's already a lot of posts in forums about this error, and almost all of them got solved by replacing parts from the computer, and if I have to do that, then I might as well be sure that I really have to do it, so I came here to ask for help.

So, this all started about 3 months ago when I decided to install Assassins Creed, went fine for about 30 minutes and then, for the first time, it showed me this blue screen (0x00000124), and every time I tried to play the game, the same blue screen appeared, so I gave up and uninstalled it. I was playing League of Legends at the time too, and the error never appeared. And now I get to the reason that took me to make this post. About 1 week ago, this error, the one that appeared when I played Assassins Creed, started to appear when I played League of Legends, and Aion, which is really strange because it never appeared before. And now every time I try to play anything, this error appears, and even when I'm watching stream, the error appears. I don't know what to do. I already tried almost everything (didn't do 9) that was on this post (Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try) and nothing worked.

I'm leaving a zip file with everything that SF_Diagnostic_Tool gave me.

Hope someone can help. :)

Forgot to mention something, I already ran Memtest86+, FurMark and used BlueScreenViewer. Memtest showed no problems. FurMark went to 90șC and nothing happened. BlueScreenViewer said that the blue screen was caused due to hal.dll.

Forgot to mention it. I don't know the brand of my PSU, all I know is that it has 400W. I could try and open my pc and try to find out if it helps solving this.

So if I update my PSU, the blue screen disappears? I just want to be sure about this. The fact that I can't update my BIOS, since the motherboard that I'm using I kinda old and got discontinued, so all the updates are from 2008. From some forum posts, they say updating BIOS can fix the issue. Again, just want to be sure, if I have to update my PSU, I'll do it.

Could please follow these steps:I'm just slightly confused about how you can have a O.E.M installation on a Foxconn motherboard and a BIOS which is from 2007
