Occasional BSOD while playing COD 4 Modern warfare and League of Legen

Hello forum ,

I am recently experiencing quite a few BSOD while playing but sometimes everything seems to be just fine.
Contrary to the BSOD , my system seems to be quite ok with every other kind of activity ( watching movies ,serfing the Internet , skyping , etc.), atleast for the last 10 days .

In my post i have attached every piece of information that I saw is required for any possible help, so guys I am waiting patiently if there is any questions regarding the post I'll gladly answer them :).

Welcome :) .

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress. - H2SO4
The generic nature of the 0x124 (Arg1=0) stop code means we would have to take
the trail & error approach.

I would have liked to have more than one dump file to perhaps see a pattern, do you have more?

Do you have any spare parts (or another PC) to test with?
The usual suspect of this kind of BCCode is the CPU but it's often not the the case which is why we need
to test other components to rule them out as the cause.
How old are your components?

What is the make, model and age of your PSU?
Fill out this form and post back the result:
Good practice, open up the case and re-seat all types of connection.
  • SATA Cables (HDD/SSD/ODD).
  • SATA-Power.
  • Motherboard 24-pin.
  • Motherboard 4/8-pin (CPU).
  • Re-seat the RAM.
  • Re-seat the GPU.
Make sure that every slot / cable head is free of dust or other obstruction.
Make sure that every connection is seating properly and firmly in-place.

Also have a look at the motherboard and the GPU, search for any "bad caps", bulky, leaking bloated capacitors.


Test for thermals and stability:
  • Download Speccy and post a Screenshot of the summary window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.
    • Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).

Reset the BIOS back to default in case you're unaware that your CPU is overclocked:
Note   Note
Write down the current value of the SATA Mode!
Its either AHCI or IDE.
After resetting the CMOS go back and verify the value for SATA Mode is what it was
when the OS was installed.

Note   Note
If any component is overclocked reset it back to stock speeds!

Awesome !!! You have been of great help to me . I followed every one of your instructions and a mindblowing fact emerged.
My PC and all its components are almost 4 years old now , didn't seem to have any problem at all . Checked and cleaned every part that i could possibly reach to , and when I downloaded the AMD overdrive i accidently found out that my CPU was previously overclocked which i don't recall doing whatsoever. I backed it up to stock settings and now I hope for the best of my machine here.

One again thank you for the full info list. You are a life saver :) . Keep the good help going mate.
