Windows 7: BSOD: STOP: 0x00000124

11 Jun 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
BSOD: STOP: 0x00000124

Attachment 362261

Hi guys,

I've gotten two blue screens in the space of about a week and they mainly occur when I am playing online games. I have attached my minidumps to this thread, I have tried viewing them with BlueScreenViewer but I can't find anything useful and I'm struggling to get the Debugging Tools installed, I'm in need of some help.

I would really appreciate any insight.

Kind regards,

0x124's are typically related to a hardware issue and can only be isolated by stress testing the major components.
If overclocking, reset all overclocks back to their default settings and then follow these:
RAM - run for a minimum of 8 consecutive passes
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
CPU - run the HIGH test
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest
Video - run the FURMARK test for 20mins
Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Storage - run the SHORT test using the DOS version

If it is of any use, I have only received these blue screens after installing a new CPU cooler. My temperatures are much lower than when I used a stock cooler, though. I did apply more thermal paste than I probably should, I put quite a bit on. There is nothing that *should* be wrong with my computer, it is only a year or two old and was custom build, I clean it out fairly regularly and monitor my temperatures. My CPU temperatures sometimes go above around 70, sometimes even higher.

Is it possible that this BSOD could be related to my new cooler, even with the temperatures being lower overall?
