Windows 7: BSOD coming up randomly. first only when playing movies, now random

BSOD coming up randomly. first only when playing movies, now random

Hi Everyone,

A while ago my computer started tofreeze up when playing a movie.. I have been trying to locate the error but am unable to find out why this happens. Sometimes I can play a few movies and sometimes it freezes within seconds of playing a movie. Since two days the machines also starts to reboot with a BSOD when just browsing the net or working on a document. Generally it will freeze up with a 124 error.

Your help is highly appreciated as it drives me crazy that I am not able to find the problem. My personal thought is that is is my processor or the videocard that is causing the issue.

Thanks in advance.

A stop 0x124 is a hardware related issue, apparently. And the computer seems to be bit of old.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

Also let us know the wattage of the installed PSU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Thanks ARC for the reply. It is indeed a bit of an older machine, but I like it. Especially with the dual monitor setup.

I will run the tests and report back.
