Windows 7: New MOBO/CPU 0x0000124 on old and new Win7

21 Jul 2015   #1

New MOBO/CPU 0x0000124 on old and new Win7

Switched from
  • ASUS Sabertooth 990FX to ASUS Z97-A
  • AMD Phenom X6 1100T to i5-4690K
  • Zalman CPU cooler to NZXT Kraken X61
Current Hardware
  • G.Skill Ripjaws (2x8GB)
  • Antec 900W PSU
  • Samsung EVO 840 120GB SSD
  • WD Green and Black (2TB and 7450 GB respectively)
  • Corsair Carbide Air 540 Case
Tried to boot up and got to the desktop which almost immediately crashed with 0x0000124. Unhooked and reset parts. No change.

Reinstalled Win7 to fresh copy. Took a couple attempts but installed and got to desktop (currently on it).

It's been running now about ten minutes and I was able to install CPUID HWMonitor. I had removed and reinstalled everything; Tried alternating memory sticks in different configurations and different ports, moved EVGA 770 GTX to alternating slots, tried using on-board GPU, changed around SATA lines, removed and reinstalled all HDDs and OS SSD. I used the stock thermal paste on the X61 and this morning was starting to think it was a CPU temps. So, now I am monitoring them to see what happens (Averaging around 41C).

EDIT: Crashed trying download nVidia and Chipset drivers, temps seemed normal.

EDIT 2: Cannot install nVidia drivers. Upon reboot got message "There was a problem starting NVCPL.DLL NVCPL.DLL is not a valid Win32 application."

If someone could analyze the attached BSOD dumps that would swell and I will profess my undying love.

There is no crash dump there in the uploaded zip. But as it is stop 0x124 as you say, it would be the best that you follow this guide: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try .

Old mobo + win7, need driver help.
Hi all, I have an Abit NF7-S2. I know it's ancient in computer years but I NEED to get it working. The built in Lan and sound are the only things not recognized by Win7. I was able to scrounge up all the drivers but of course they don't work with Win7. If I could write my own I would :cry:
