Windows 7: Blue Screen every couple minutes

26 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7
Blue Screen every couple minutes

I seem to be having the same problem that a lot of people are having. Only for me, my computer is shutting off and restarting every ten minutes or so.

I have a completely new computer, bought less than one week ago, with Windows 7.
AMD Pheonom II X4 910
2.6 GHz
64 bit
ATI Radron 4350 display adapter

Everything worked fine until today when suddenly it started this frequent crashing. Prior to the start of the problem, I hadn't installed any new software for over a day.

I'm hoping to post this before it

Here are the two most recent minidump files... I don't have the slightest idea for why Windows 7 is doing this, so any help is appreciated

edit: to be more specific, the BSOD only occurs every few times it shuts down. The other times, it merely restarts and gives the safemode option screen.

A stop 0x124, also known as a "Machine Check Exception". The hardware has signalled an uncorrectable fault and Windows is passing the message along in the form of a 0x124 BSOD. Both crashes are the same. Here's the standard write-up for that error:

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon."

In your case, the automated dump analysis has detected a relatively specific issue:


Try to update the BIOS and the hardware-related drivers (video, NIC, chipset...). Don't over-clock or under-cool. Beyond that, give it's under warranty presumably, personally I'd take it back to the shop.
