Windows 7: Daily BSOD with Custom Build

Daily BSOD with Custom Build

About five months ago I decided to invest in a custom build. It ran fine for the first couple months. After that I began to have the occasional BSOD with increasing frequency. Strangely enough, they seemed to occur regularly for about a week and would then stop only to start up again a week or so later. Now, the problem has escalated to nearly every night.

I do game often but have only had one crash while doing so. The rest occur randomly while watching a video online or while the computer is on sleep.

Unfortunately, I do not know enough to pinpoint the exact problem. From what I've seen with other threads, "ntoskrnl.exe" often takes the blame for the crash but isn't necessarily the cause. Rather than risk causing more damage, I thought I'd seek advice from those more knowledgeable than myself. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have attached the SF Diagnostic Tool .zip file from my crash. Please let me know if there is any other information I have forgotten to include.

Hi nickiek.

A stop 0x124 is some sort of hardware issue.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Stress test the CPU.

Let us know the results.
