Windows 7: BSOD STOP: 0x00000124. Happens 2x a day, Normally Without Provocation

Hi. Thank you so much. I have downloaded Driver Booster 2 and SlimDrivers have updated the drivers that both programs have mutually identified as needing updating.

I'm hoping that this will help fix the problem. My system gives me a BSOD about 1-2x a day randomly.

If the driver updates do not fix the problem, then I will follow the instructions by essenbe and use Driver Verifier.

I appreciate all of the help. It's not a matter of trust, as I am the one who is indebted to you and in need of help. Rather it's a question of trying to mitigate risk. Oftentimes less is more so I'm trying to be conservative.

I will use Driver Verifier if I receive the BSOD again

I assume it's follow directions to a T. Sorry about that. I think I just got worried because I read some bad things about Driver Verifier.

I will do better and have already created the System Restore point, I'm just waiting for it to BSOD again.

Any sort of driver identifier programs are not reliable. To update a driver, go straight to the computer manufacturer's website, or the device manufacturer's website. Dont trust third party.

Hi. Thank you for everything. I have run the Driver Verifier for 24 hours and, surprisingly, there hasn't been a BSOD. It's made my computer slow but it hasn't given me a BSOD.

My problems started on December 29-30, about a day after I updated some software. I updated Skype, Audacity, Virtual DJ and I think 1-2 others.

I've since uninstalled Skype and Virtual DJ, yet I don't think it fixed the problem because yesterday morning (before running Driver Verifier) it gave me a BSOD.

I'm attaching the latest crash report. The crash report is in the latest dump. Also, I'm attaching the latest installed programs.

It may just be a coincidence that the BSOD started after the software was updated.

My computer battery is also shot, and when I start the computer, it tells me that i should replace it. So I thought that this may be contributing to the problem, so I unplugged the charging cord and left the computer on battery for 30 minutes, but it didn't give me a BSOD.

The final thing is that the BSOD has changed a bit. Previously it would give me a Blue screen and then i would have to manually reset the computer.

Yet recently the BSOD has only flashed very briefly and then it would automatically restart the computer.

Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you.

Code:
Windows 7 Kernel Version 7600 MP (2 procs) Free x64
Install Service pack 1 and all other windows updates. Otherwise the system will remain vulnerable to threats including stop 0x124 BSOD.
Let us know the situation after installing Service Pack 1.

Hi. Thank you. Is there another way besides installing the update?

This problem began around December 29 / 30th after I updated some software. Prior to that, I never had any issues.

I only use the computer to surf the internet and complete my work and don't like loading any unnecessary updates / software on it.

Perhaps if I uninstalled some software that I had previously installed on December 28?

But, if you believe that the installation of SP1 has a high probability of solving the issue and there is no alternate route, then I'll install SP1.

My only comment is that I hadn't have SP1 installed for ~3 years previously and never encountered this situation previously.

Thank you for your help - attached i'm including the software that's been installed.

You really do need to install Service Pack 1. It closes a lot of security holes as do the windows updates you should keep current with. You also do not need a registry cleaner. They cause more problems than the help. Windows 7 is very capable of dealing with the registry.

Hi. It actually gave me a BSOD, which is odd cause for 24+ hours it didn't restart when using Driver Verifier and I just restarted the computer about 2 hours ago and around 7pm on January 8, it did a BSOD.

I'm attaching the latest report (dump report).

I'll install the service updates.

My gut feeling, and you guys know a lot more than I do, is that it may be a hardware issue.

if the software stuff doesn't work, then maybe I should replace a part? Obviously a software solution is preferable, but i'm not sure it's possible.

I'll report back soon :)
