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.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator - The only power supply calculator trusted by PSU manufacturers and computer enthusiasts
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 .

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us. Also let us know if you have experienced any crash/BSOD and/or artifacts during the test.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file for us.

Depending on the results, we will decide our next step.

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.
