Windows 7: BSOD 0x0000124 at Random Times

09 Oct 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD 0x0000124 at Random Times

BSOD occurs randomly, idle, gaming, watching videos. At First I thought it was my CPU overheating but I have been running Core Temp and found this is not true. During the last BSOD I had 2 webpages open and 1 was playing a video. The Temp was around 35C.

I have attached the Logs

Hi 19delta,

Welcome to the 7forums.

The errors are 0x124 WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (Windows Hardware Error Architecture)
This means that there are problems with your hardware, but this error is also caused by overclocking or faulty drivers.

The problem is an internal error with the cache while executing an instruction.
Please make sure your hardware drivers are up to date.
Please follow the instructions below, this could be caused by many things unfortunately.

I disabled overclocking as my new Mobo had it set automatically. I also kicked up my fans. I will test this over the weekend and let you know how things go. If it Blue screens again I will run those tests.
