Windows 7: Graphic glitches/stutter leading to BSOD BCcode: 124.

Graphic glitches/stutter leading to BSOD BCcode: 124.

I got a Vista ultimate 64, Asus M4A78-E, AMD Phenom II 3.0, Powercolor 4870X2, 4 gig 800mhz ram, Corsair TX 650, and latly when i play games i get graphic glitches and studder and reduced flow in the game and then crash. This happens in many games but in different ways, Starcraft 2 Beta gives load of stutters and lines that goes vertical in the start and easens up a bit when you play, Arma 2 gives cosntantly stutters and low performance and glitches whit models and floor becoming white for some miliseconds at random, then we have Company of heroes which just crashes out right at random.

The crash is often black screen with vertical flimmering lines then blue screen, "unexpected hardware failure" then reboot and BCCode: 124.

I have posted dxdiag, relics warnong.log in this link RelicNews Forums - Game crashed to blue screen. . Since i first discoverd the problem with COH. I also upload your seven run here.

From what i gather it might be a conflict of some sort, since my system should never ever hack or stutter on any game (let alone give graphic glitches in all these games with white lines and stuff) and yet it does even at old games like COH or low intesnive as SC2 Beta, and becouse of the BCcode: 124, that would imply that something is disturbing the system and fighting?

I have updated my BIOS, soundcard, windows and ati drivers to the latest available.

We'll need the rest of the reports from the Seven Forums folder (especially the MSINFO32, Driver List and Event Logs)

There's some suggested steps for STOP 0x124 errors here: be sure to update your system to Service Pack 2, then ensure that these drivers are updated:

Vista Ultimate 64

Hi thanks for answer, yes i had already read through the first STop 0x124 link.
Oh i closed the program before, becouse it didnt tell me it was still wroking so i thought it was done. I have rerunned it and upload it now.
I only have Service Pack 1 so will update that straight away! Feeling a bit dumb that i didnt think about that, but to my defence i ran windows update and it didnt mention a new service pack.
Also i seem not to be able to uploead the files, it crashed around 25% and cries about connection resets and stuff. I try to uploead the files you mentioned.

Vista Ultimate 64

Update for people having similar problems. In this case it is that the graphic card is overheating. It is 95 degrees while idle in windows and automatic fans at 33%. With 100% power it is at 60 degrees, but goes up to 106 degrees in game . What i can gather this might be to fan "dead zone" or that dust have clogged up inside the cards internal cooling rig or requiers an additional psu to run it or worst case, a combination .
