Windows 7: BSOD Randomly Win7-64bit BCCode 124

BSOD Randomly Win7-64bit BCCode 124


I'm new here so I hope this post has everything needed. I've recently been having random BSOD in Win7. I havent changed anything in the past month or two. I did move recently, and I read that BCCode 124 could be a hardware issue. So its possible something was damaged in the move.

It happens at random times, internet browsing or playing a game. No real constant theme. I've uploaded the dump files etc.

Would appreciate any help.

Thank you!

Hello evans46f.

A stop 0x124 is a hardware error. And yours an old computer, so it is possible. Let us take some tests to determine the failing hardware.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Stress test the CPU.

Tell us about your PSU. Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

At least 30% extra is safe.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.

Thanks for your help.

My Ram passed the test. Did 7 full passes with it overnight. No problems.

It also handled the stress test well, though I stopped it after about 20 minutes when I noticed my temps start to creep up.

I think I'll start with replacing my heatsink. My cpu temps got up into the high 60's during the stress test. Case temp is definitely not a problem, it hovers at around 28-30 even at heavy load.

My power supply is an antec 600 watt. Kind of old, I've had it for about 6 years, but it should be enough power.

It very well could be the old board too, Its a crappy foxconn board that I've been using because it works. Maybe not anymore. I'll start with the Heatsink and then report back.

It wasn't the temp of the CPU. Its much cooler now and still no luck. Get 1 BSOD per day. It happens right after startup within the first ten minutes but then never again the rest of the time the computer is on. Under action center it generates a couple messages. I attached the dmp file. Still not sure whats up.... Could it be that some hardware component is just failing during the first few minutes before it warms up?
