Windows 7: BSOD playing Dota2, error 0x00000124

BSOD playing Dota2, error 0x00000124


I have recently bought this new laptop, precisely I got it online and it was delivered a week ago, so you can imagine my surprise when I got the Blue Screen of Death!

Anyway, I was playing Dota2, just started the game and in about 5 minutes it went blue, and the speakers shhhhh.. After that I turned it off, manually of course, then on again and played the game for about 2 hours waiting on it to happen again.. I am not quite the computer-illiterate, but I am also not an expert in this field so I just wanted to see if it persists or not, and it did not. But I am still unsatisfied, being it a new laptop and all.
So, as the pic I uploaded states: it is supposedly, a hardware error, and I can return this laptop back, no questions asked, I suppose, since I am still in the first 2 weeks, but I need your professional opinion, to avoid the hassle unless it is a serious issue, like a hardware malfunction or sth similar.

The data I uploaded I collected just now, and this issue happened last night, so I used the laptop several hours since, if it is relevant I mean.

Thanks a bunch guys, really appreciated!!

Checked your dump file and theres nothing conclusive there to pinpoint a cause, likely causes would be overclocking or overheating ??
If its only a one time thing I wouldn't worry too much if its not a recurring problem.

I updated my BIOS. I ran a memory test which passed (although i have handled the RAM since the mem test, i...
