Windows 7: Random and persistent BSOD's

Windows 7 Home Premium
Random and persistent BSOD's

I am having repeated blue screens on my Samsung laptop. I have freshly reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium, gone through the entire driver list and tried my best to install and update everything properly, and I still get near constant BSOD's, sometimes as frequently as 15 seconds apart. I have no clue what the problem is, but attached is the SF grab all thingy. Ideas? Oh, yeah, here are my system specs:

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.

The machine check indicates the CPU has found a hardware fault in the computer which caused the PC to crash. The Cache error generally means the CPU is at fault.
Can you please stress test your CPU by running Prime95 by following these instructions.

Ok, so I ran the Prime95 stress test and the computer crashed the first time within a few minutes of starting the test. The second time I ran the test, it froze up within about 15 minutes. Holy crap, does this mean I need to replace the processor? That's going to be a mean trick on this laptop....

Any further ideas? Thank you!

Yes, that sounds definitely like a CPU issue.
You might be able to replace the CPU in your laptop but that depends on your motherboard as well, unfortunately I don't have the time to go looking for which CPUs you can get as I'm really busy.
You could visit this section of the forums and ask if you can get a replacement.

When you get a new CPU post back here the results and if you're confident the issue has been solved then mark the thread as solved.
