Windows 7: BSOD playing online poker - new computer

Windows 7 64-bit Professional
BSOD playing online poker - new computer

I've been having trouble with BSODs on an old computer and thought it was time for a new computer anyway so I got one - unfortunately I am getting some on the new computer too. On the old one I had allsorts of error codes but on the new computer I only ever get 124 STOP codes. It only happens when I'm playing online poker [my profession, thus the urgency] and it has once happened while importing hand histories into my database program [which utilizes PostgreSQL]. I have uploaded the relevant zipped file. Please ask if you need any other info.
Thanks for your help,
John Bradley

Which part of the hardware is failing is not specified. There are some ways to find it out, but as it is a new computer, it must be under warranty. Better you use the warranty at first, coz some hardware tests might make the warranty void.
