Windows 7: BSOD in various games, error 0x00000124

30 Apr 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
BSOD in various games, error 0x00000124

My kids tend to play games (Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego Clone Wars, etc) whilst I'm at work and have experienced occasional but repeated BSODs. They always have cooling turned up when playing.

The computer is overclocked but has been since new (with lots of testing via Prime95, FurMark, etc), without any problems when I'm using it. I'm down to figuring there's something my sons are doing or something about the games they're playing that are causing issues.

Any assistance gratefully appreciated.

I know you said you've already done some stress testing but I'd like you to do some more with some recommendations on the amount of time you're testing.

Stress test your CPU with Prime95

I recommend running Prime95 for around 2 hours

warning   Warning

As with most stress tests your component's temperature will rapidly increase.
It is advised that you download a temperature monitoring program like HWmonitor
Keep an eye on your temperatures and stop the tests if it starts to overheat

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes

warning   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

Memtest86 will test your RAM

information   Information

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Run a Disk Check to scan for errors

Note   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Post back the results.
