Windows 7: BSOD code 124 - Games crash to desktop and programs cause BSODs

BSOD code 124 - Games crash to desktop and programs cause BSODs

Zip of dump files attached. This problem has been happening for approximately three months. I've not changed any hardware in that time. I've been using the same installation and same copy of Windows for approximately two years without issue.

Thanks very much for your help.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.

Hi Golden, as mentioned this is a new, recent issue unrelated to the copy of the OS I'm using.

Hiya, apologies if this isn't quite in the right section or if I'm missing something. For the past week or so, while playing games that can be taxing on a computer, the game will eventually hang and go into not responding mode. I'm typically able to alt-tab out, but any other program will also...
