Windows 7: BSOD at low load/idle, BCCode 124

01 Aug 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD at low load/idle, BCCode 124

This is a new system with a fresh install and hardware. I did NOT have any BSODs until my recent Windows Update installs. Posting now so I don't lose the message before next BSOD, will attach file ASAP.

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 124
BCP1: 0000000000000000
BCP2: FFFFFA8007902028
BCP3: 00000000BF800000
BCP4: 0000000000000124
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

EDIT: Some relevant information.

This happens with a CLEAN BOOT after installing a whole lot of Windows Updates this morning.
I get like 2-4 minutes of only using Chrome before the BSOD hits again.
Might have something to do with a USB 3 driver-- been acting weird lately.
RAM is downclocked automatically to 1600 Hz from stock 1866 Hz. Doubt that's it.
CPU is overclocked slightly but I don't think that's the problem.
Don't think it's my Crucial SSD either.

Thanks for the help!


I went into the BIOS and did two things: reverted CPU clock to stock, and make the RAM clock 1600 Hz instead of auto. Haven't blue screened in 10 minutes. Will go back and try to overclock again (I was running solid at a liquid-cooled 4.2 GHz @ ~35 C before the updates).

BSOD while Win7 64-Bit is idle or various times (BCCode: 7a)
I have been having blue screens for a couple months now and have been trying to figure out why. The BSOD varies but typically was the STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. They started after I got better compatible RAM (went from 4Gb to 8Gb) so I have went back to the 4Gb. But the RAM tested...
