Windows 7: BSOD when installing Radeon drivers and some other times.

29 Oct 2014   #1

BSOD when installing Radeon drivers and some other times.

I have been having BSODs on this new computer I am building for a friend. The blue screens were happening constantly whenever I tried to install the GPU drivers but one time it went through. It seems to crash after a few hours of sitting on the desktop but it crashes much more frequently when playing any games.

I have tested the gpu in an another computer and have actually used two different gpus and two different motherboards. Yet the issues persists. I have also done a memtest with no errors.

Probably caused by : GenuineIntel

A stop 0x124 is a hardware error, mostly.

You say it is a new built. And it is crashing when you are trying to install a display driver. The card is a R9 one.

I would suggest you to apply any other graphics card there. Lend your card to your friend for a testing purpose. Does it behave the same? Observe from the scratch. Uninstall display driver, apply the other card, try to install the display driver.

Let us know how it goes.
