Windows 7: BSOD while playing intense games such as ARMA, error 0x000000d1

BSOD while playing intense games such as ARMA, error 0x000000d1


These BSOD's have been going on for a considerable amount of time now and I am getting extremely aggravated with them. The error was DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL stop:0x000000d1 or 0x00000124.
I am sorry I cannot post a Mini Dump file as I am not an admin on my computer.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

It's not that helpful if you're not an admin, in fact to do most things you need to be an admin.

If it's only ever happening in graphical intensive games then I can suggest running hardware tests but you'll probably need to be an admin.

Stress test with Prime95, run for around 2 hours.
Follow these instructions.

Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Stress test your GPU with Furmark, run it for around 30 minutes.
Follow these instructions.

Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Note   Note

As with most stress testing applications, these are not fail safe so you should have a temperature monitoring software for Prime95.
Furmark has one built in.
HWmonitor is a good piece of software.
You can download it here:

Then you'll never find the problem. Bugcheck 124's are always hardware related, and 1E's can often be memory-related....the only way to solve them is by running the stress tests recommended.

If you don't want to run the stress tests then we can't help you further.

Two other things, you should have the admin of the PC help and follow the instructions to post in the BSOD forum for help.

I agree with Golden - you can't manually find what is causing the issue without testing the components.

I also agree with TheDoctor44 - admin rights are paramount to testing and fixing the issue.

And.... as Britton30 suggested, post per the BSOD instructions:
Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

That being said, and without any real data you will have to solve this issue on your own unless you
1. provide full system information (see Easy System Specs in my signature)
-- AND --
2. Run the tests so that SevenForums members have a clue as to what might be causing the issue.
Note: you can run the tests with elevated priviliges if you know the admin password

Other than that, you might start your self diagnosis by making sure Windows is up-to-date. Run Windows Update and accept all offers.

You could try pulling the all memory cards and inserting one at a time. It could be memory as Golden suggested or it could be the memory slot - so try the cards one at a time in different slots and test the game.

If it's your graphics card, see if it's up-to-date.

If you have other cards in your system, pull them out and test the game, then insert on card at a time and test the game.

That's all the help I can offer - it's fairly generic.

Good luck... I'm out!
