BSOD, repeatedly crashing when I'm not around to see, HELP!

Hi Forum,

My PC (windows 7, 64-bit) is crashing regularly, always when I am not around (and therefore it is just idling). I wake up to:

Here's what windows prints out:
Problem signature:

BCP4: 0000000000000000
OS Version: 6_1_7601

Thanks for the heads up... I did follow the instructions (as far as I know), but the SF tool produced a blank folder which I proceeded to zip and post without checking. I uploaded a new one that should be correct...

Randomly occurring BSODs, please help!

I am getting BSODs let's say once per week, randomly. I learn of them when I get the "windows has recovered from an unexpected error" type of message upon reboot. I've attached my output. Thanks in advance. System is 7 64bit.

Take the suggestions already given by koolkat77 for the HPE 380t.

For the ASUS P6T DELUXE V2 machine, install Service pack 1 and all other windows updates. (The SP1 update is pending for the HP machine too.) Otherwise the system will remain vulnerable to threats.

And the ASUS one is highly overclocked.

MaxSpeed:     2670
CurrentSpeed: 3818
Overclocking is one of the most frequent causes of a stop 0x124, as frequent as the missing SP1. As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Also set the BIOS to default, too.

OK, some updates/questions:

HPE 380t

DONE: Uninstalled AVG, installed Microsoft security essentials. Ran all virus/malware/rootkit scans suggested, all came back clean. Updated Windows and suggested drivers (this is still ongoing). Removed Sandboxie and a couple of other programs I was no longer using. Cleaned out startup items (but left: microsoft security client, allway sync, microsoft skydrive, netdrive, cloudstation (synology), and dropbox; my understanding is that starting at startup is essential to their functionality but please let me know if one or more of these is a known BSOD offender).

TO DO: Disc and memory scans.


So far, I've only addressed (and as above, still ongoing) the Windows and driver updates. But other than this, the only requested action was lowering my overclock (which I completely understand the rationale behind). My question is, should I be doing some of the things recommended in the HPE 380t suggestions? For example, this computer has AVIRA, should I switch to microsoft security essentials? Should I run virus, malware, disc, memory, etc scans on it? Thin out programs that start at startup? A higher order question, for my curiosity, that will explain these questions somewhat: is there something in the reports I uploaded that indicates why my system(s) may have crashed? Or, does it just provide information about my systems that indicate to you areas that may have caused the crash (only because these areas are well known causes of crashes)?

Thanks, and I'll keep truckin' and updating.
