Windows 7: BSOD 0x00000124 playing games

Windows 7 Pro 64bit
BSOD 0x00000124 playing games


I would love to get some assistance with my recent BSOD issues (I have recently starting seeing them while playing WoW). It can happen anywhere between 5 minutes to hours into playing. My computer is a custom build, no overclocking, and has been stable since I built it (2 months). I have made no recent hardware or software changes.

MB: AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 LGA1155
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
RAM: GSkills Ripjaw DDR3 1600
GPU: Nvidia GTX 650 Ti

I've attached my SF zip file. Please let me know what addition information I can provide.

Thank you!

Update: I am still getting BSOD 0x124 after trying the following:

1. Ran Memtest86 for 12 hours, no errors.
2. Ran a torture test, all internal temps never rose above 55C.
3. Updated GPU, USB, SATA and audio drivers.

I've also attached the last two minidump files.

Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

Ran msched, which found no issues.

I also tried updating my BIOS (from 2.80 to 2.90), and the system become more unstable - I could no longer load windows normally (could only load in safe mode). I have reverted back to 2.80 and can now boot normally again.

Not sure what to try next.

1. I've re-seated all hardware, re-made all connections, and thoroughly cleaned all components.
2. Run SFC /scannow, no issues.
3. Downloaded driver update utility and updated all drivers.
4. Ran a registry cleaner.

Using a bluescreen viewer, the crashes appear to be caused by driver hal.dll (crash address ntoskrnl.exe)

The system is still only stable in Safe mode (with networking).

Thanks for your time.
