Hello Win7 friends,

I've run the antivirus and got some infected files but the problem persists... If someone could help me I would really appreciate it as I'm totally lost on this subject.

Cheers

Welcome to 7F :).

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, although being a laptop not much you can do in terms of hardware unfortunately.

The errors are pretty much a consistent Generic L2 Cache error.
This is both a good thing and also not so much, the consistency of the errors (Processor 0 & 3/4 = Bank 6) usually means the fault is the CPU itself rather then being something else, which narrows things down
which is why I said it's both good and not.

Seeing how new the PC is I would get it RMA'd to be honest but there are a few things we can
test before going that route.


Test for thermals and stability:
  • Download HWinfo (64bit)and post a Screenshot of the sensors 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).

Testing the RAM:

  • Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
  • Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

Verify the following:

I found an available update to your BIOS, but it's best you use your service tag to find the matching link.
Keep us posted.
