Windows 7: (Playing online video, 3D games)BSOD 0x00000124, random freezing

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP 1 Build 7601
(Playing online video, 3D games)BSOD 0x00000124, random freezing

Hi. Thank you for your time and expertise:)
For a while now I've had mostly BSOD 0x00000124 appearing on my screen when watching online videos(except YouTube) or whenever I played PC games on maximum video settings.
I decided to re-install Windows, assuming that software is the problem. Though after that not only did the BSOD stay, but also my computer started freezing randomly(on start-up, while installing updates, browsing the internet).
Also I installed Zorin OS 6. After a few minutes of browsing the internet(using Chrome) it also froze.
I tried running MemTest86+(using a CD) but after about 10 min. the computer screen shuts down on its own.
What should I do?
