Windows 7: BSOD 0x124 only with new graphics card

14 Dec 2014   #11

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

oke well, the test completed. everything past on the long run. what i did mention in the beginnning is that the computer crashes really random. like i said it crashed during de cmd run (only once the other three times i did the sfc scannow it didnt). the bsod crashes are completly random. for example it also crashes at the desktop when there is no graphic activity on the screen. its always the same errorcode and the dumpfile states the same thing everytime.

for some reason i still think it has something to do with the display driver. because when it doenst bsod and reboots. it pops back up and sais 'the display driver has stopped working but has succesfully recovered'. i think that sometimes the graphicscard is fast enough to make the recovery and sometimes its not and windows will bsod (bccode 124) and restarts itself. this BSOD does not occur when i delete the display driver, disable my gpu (the msi r9 290x) or when i boot into safe mode.

i get the feeling that somehow, the new generation graphicscards are in some way not compatible with my motherboard. is this possible?

i really dont know what to do.

greetings Tom

Tom, I have spent several hours digging into your dump files. That led me to know there is something bad wrong with your system. What I found is that the PID of you OS is an OEM_SLP key from a Lenovo system In fact, I believe it is the stolen Lenovo key that was blacklisted by Microsoft before Windows 7 was released. The only way that key can be used is by using a program that heavily alters system files.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analyzing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimize the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a Genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them
