Windows 7: BSOD-problem 0x124 was solved - now again

BSOD-problem 0x124 was solved - now again

Hey guys (and girls?)

I got huge problems with BSODs some times ago (around 3 months, estimated)
After starting with getting BSODS in the beginning of Dezember, they always became more and more (always 0x124).
I reinstalled W7, it didn't change anything.
After some time i registered here; and some guys helped me out "solving" the problem. I'm really sorry, but i couldn't find the thread.... -.-)
The told me to uninstall "Intel Management Engine Interface"-driver, but in fact, I had problems with uninstalling (it re-installed after rebooting of my laptop); so I deactived that driver.

Around one month, I haven't had any problems, but than there was it - a 0x124 again. But i thought, if it would happen one a month, all is ok.
One month later, it happened again. Didn't matter for me.

But for around one and a half week, it appears more frequently. 4 times in the last 3 days.
Really disturbing.

I'm pretty sure that this is not a thermal problem. I cleaned the fan 2 times and I did a new thermal grease (is that right? Google translate means yes)
The BSOD appears purely random. Due to holidays now, I'm playing some hours a day, but the laptop crashes randomly. I got one of them while playing, but more when doing nothing. (I startet the laptop, but while on desktop, with no program started, he crashed).

I did MemTest, CPU-Test, Graphikcard-Test, WesternDigital-Test when I got my first BSODs in the end of last year, and i really think, it's exactly the same now - without a result. (But if requested, I would do it again).
The driver "Intel Driver Management Interface" should be deactivated according to my devices-manager, so that shouldn't be the problem.
(After deactivating it in January it really was ok for around one month)

I'm attaching the .zip as requested, but there are also the dumps from before deactivating that driver. But I think, the are not interesting anymore.


e/ I got an Acer Aspire 5740G,
I don't do any overclocking! In fact, I don't even know how to do
And I found my first thread in here:
BSOD 0x124 without reason again and again

e/ happened again 3 min ago. That time something rarely happened. (Already also happened long time ago). The laptop crashed, but I only saw black screen - no blue screen with white words and numbers.
The black screen durated the same time as the casual BSOD.

e/ Now again. 10 min after the last one. That's getting me insane. Casual BSOD that time... ARGH

e/ WTF? happend 3 times in a row, the first was 30 sec after editing previous time, then 2 times before even before the screen appeared where to enter password....
As i get enough time, I'll add the latest dumps too, cause i think, the faults can be seen easier...

Have you been checking the temperature of the machine, seems strange that it occurs close together after first BSOD suggesting machine may be hot/overheating
I see you still have monitoring software installed use this to check temps then work machine and monitor temperatures, report back idle temps and max temps after you load machine up a bit

Thx for the answer.
I was looking for the temperatures when not idle. The CPU Max was 60 deegrees.
All the others were ok too. I didnt Check fors, but im gonna test when playing the next time.
The notebook really felt hot sometimes when getting bsod, but
a) sometimes he was completely cold
b) playing Games is getting him hotter.

But im gonna check it tomorrow, as possible.

e/ I was watching for temperatures - all was ok. I did a screenshot some minutes after starting.
After ~5min of gaming, i got an BSOD again, but only around 20 sec before, I was looking for temperatures - and they haven't been that hotter than doing nothing. I didn't get a screen for that, but it really wasn't that hot.

The BSODs appear randomly, I even got one while I booted in Windows-safety-mode (with networks!)
