Windows 7: BSOD 0x124 roughly 1 minute after startup everytime.

25 Jun 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 bit
BSOD 0x124 roughly 1 minute after startup everytime.

Hi there. So this problem started on Thursday evening, i had watched a movie on Amazon Prime on my computer and not too long after, maybe 10-20 minutes i came across a blue screen. Now ive had a few before and i figure no big deal just restart and go back to what i was doing. Problem is, everytime i turn my computer back on the i get the BSOD again after about a minute or 2 of being signed in. Strange thing is this does not happen if i log into safemode or turn the computer on and just dont log in, so you would think the problem would be a driver fault.

After much research online trying to find different solutions to this problem, so far everything ive tried has failed, so far i have attempted:

Disc Check
Memory Check
Virus Scan
Cleaning the computer and components from dust
Unplugging and re-plugging whatever i can inside the tower (Memory cards etc)
Updating drivers (I used Driver Booster for this)
and a few other little things that didnt really do anything.

As you can probably tell already i am somewhat of a novice when it comes to this kind of thing, so if you think you may have a solution to my problem id love to hear it though i may need some step by step instructions! If you need anymore information please ask, Thanks!

Hi thomas980,

Your problem sounds like a corrupt part of the initialization at winlogon, note that this could be corrupt services, drivers and such, not something from Windows. First remove the drivers installed by Driver Booster 3, these will make things worse, and check Gigabyte for driver updates instead.
Second, update the BIOS to version FC, I do not know what rev. version your motherboard is so double check before downloading
GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-H81M-D2V (rev. 2.1)

warning   Warning
Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

An easy way to get remove these drivers is by using a restore point prior the installation.

If updating the BIOS & removing + updating drivers does not work, try a clean boot.

BSOD 0x124 roughly 1 minute after startup everytime. Diagnostics Test BSOD 0x124 roughly 1 minute after startup everytime.
 Clean boot

Please try the following:
  • Search msconfig and open it
    • Go to the tab services
    • Check 'hide microsoft services'
    • Uncheck all other services
    • Go to the tab startup
    • Disable everything
  • Click apply and click ok
  • Reboot if asked
See if the problem persist, if the problem does not persist enable in the startup tab in taskmanager 1 item and in the services tab in msconfig also 1 service, reboot and see if the problem persist. Keep doing this until you find the culprit or there is nothing left.

The dumps show that the CPU reported an internal unclassified error, unfortunately this is not of much use because it means the error is not publicly documented.
