Windows 7: BSOD chrome.exe bugcheck 124 repeatingly.

BSOD chrome.exe bugcheck 124 repeatingly.

Hi, I have had this issues for a while now. All my system infos are on my profile.

I have done yesterday:
- Hard drive test with the WD diagnotic tool: no errors.
- memory test 21 hours with memtest86+ 5.01: no errors
- 3x cpustab test no error whatsoever and no overheating nor overclocking (other than the 1090T "built in" OC at 3.2GHz
- updated all bios, drivers etc etc.

and yet I am constantly getting BSOD while playing FB games and none while playing online games such as WOT, WOW Diablo III etc... I am stomped and really need some help. Here are the last minidump file infos and I have also attached SF zip file

Hi JGPV welcome to SF :).

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.

The errors of the two bugchecks are pretty similar, and claim a L1-Cache Data Read and Data Write error.

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 HWinfo 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).
    Note   Note
    It is not mandatory to run both tests simultaneously, although possible as long as the temperatures are under constant monitoring.
Reset the BIOS back to default:
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.

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