Q: Random BSOD 0x00000124 Hall.dll (Bsod is distorted/static sound)

I have been getting a ton of bsods I have re installed video drivers, updated and reinstalled windows 8. Did countless hardware test(Video ram, check memory, Cpu test) all passed temperatures stay around 25-35 c.
Recently uninstalled all video drivers and re installed. The bsods sometimes go away for a week or two but come back. and sometimes when it bsods there is a static noise inside of the computer, and the blue screen becomes distorted
Ive attached the dump files, if someone could help me pinpoint the piece of hardware so I can ship it out for repair please.

Hi irunebar12 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

I have analysed your dump files and below has been provided an analysis of the same for informative purposes :-

Code:
Error : DCACHEL0_WR_ERR (Proc 7 Bank 1)
Status : 0xbf80000000000124
Address : 0x0000000101d80bc0
Misc. : 0x0000000000000086


The dumps are consistent with the error that there was a problem in writing to the L0 Cache of the CPU. That is a dead CPU and hence you are getting the errors even after a fresh install.
See if you are getting any errors in Prime95 according to the below (thanks usasma) -






Prime95 download site: GIMPS - Free Prime95 software downloads - PrimeNet
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight please run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
Monitor the CPU temperature and DON'T let it exceed 85?C. If it do... Read more

Hello fellas! It's now like 1 year, that im having troubles with my computer. I had really many patience with it, tried really anything i could but now im done with my nerves and asking you to help.

Problem: Many different BSOD's + sometimes PC just Shutdown as if i took out the power cable. And it freeze sometimes untill i reset it - The picture freezes, sound stopped, nothing changes even with ctrl + alt + del. The Windows System Logs are full with Criticals, Errors and Warnings. They occur randomly, not just while im playing 3d Games but even without any programms running.

Since i bought that custom hardware im having those BSODS, Shutdowns etc sometimes 1x a week, sometimes 10x / day for many days in a row. I guess it's a Hardware failure, because i tried like 20+ Windows reinstalls. Diferent Versions of Win7, with same bad result.

I've bought those parts:

x6 Phenom Processor with silent Cool Fan
500W power supply
ASUS M4A88TD-V
Radeon HD 6900
2x 4GB Ram with passive cooling
2x 1TB WDC SATA

a. After like 1 year i asked the seller to help out. He replaced following hardware: motherboard, power supply, graphic card. It didn't helped.
b. I tried to remove 1x RAM, then tried only with the other one

A:BSOD 0x00000124, A0000001 and random Shutdowns without BSOD

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Also the MSINFO32 you uploaded it corrupt. So upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
BTW, a stop 0x124 is a hardware issue, and you may follow Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try. ATM cannot suggest anything more due to lack of data.

And a stop 0xA0000001 is associated with ATI/AMD display driver; inbuilt and inherent in it. If this error is followed by a driver update, try to Driver Rollback. If it is taking place irrespective of the driver version, change the GPU.

Hey all,

I've been experiencing random BSOD's this past week. Seems to only happen either when I'm watching video or gaming. The computer will be useable for quite some time, anywhere from 1-4 hours, but then without warning, will crash.

I have a Core i5-2500k that I have overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Naturally, my first assumption was that something was wrong there. I tweaked the voltage a little and played with some other BIOS settings, and then let Prime run for 11-ish hours. It was still going when I woke up. For those who are wondering, I have an H60 installed, max temp was 73. Idle temps are in the low 30's.

Soooo...it would seem the CPU is fine. And yet, the crash...dump? Report? Whatever it's called, it seems to indicate the CPU, which is odd. "X64_0x124_GenuineIntel_PROCESSOR_CACHE"

Unless I'm misinterpreting it. Anyway...

My suspicion is the video card, even though I really have no proof. BUT...about a week ago, I came home from work, fired up the computer and was greeted with a blank green screen. Irritated, I rebooted, thinking that would fix it, which it didn't. So I removed the video card, cleaned and reseated it...everything worked fine.

That seems to be when the problems began, which is why I suspect it as the culprit.

I haven't checked my HDD or RAM yet. Hmmm, I probably should've ran Memtest before posting. But anyway, I thought I'd see if anyone here had any ideas/feelings/hunches/tremors in the Force.

A:Random BSOD 0x00000124

The 0x124 error is an error related to hardware problems. We'll go over the below problems first and if they don't help we can run a few stress tests to rule out components such as the graphics card and CPU.

Your system info is showing up a few problematic devices;
PS/2 Keyboard
For this I would recommend finding and installing the latest drivers for your keyboard. If the crashes continue, you can unplug the keyboard and restart. If the crashes are still persistent, the keyboard is most likely not at fault.
AODDriver4.1
This is a driver that I believe is related to your ATI graphics card. Download and install the latest drivers for your graphics card form the below link.
AMD Graphics Drivers & Software

First try updating CPU-Z from the below link.

Hi, I've been getting BSOD on and off for the past 5 weeks. I'd get one playing a game, sometimes on Itunes, or just browsing the internet.

I recently moved all my HDDs and SSD over to a new build. However, I decided not to format the OS drive and everything seemed to work smoothly. My first guess would be a hard drive failure.

Hi there guys, since I have formatted my PC im getting random BSODs with the same exact error every time.
They occour pretty randomly, sometimes when Im writing a Word document, chatting with my friends, gaming or just browsing the internet. I do not know what is the main reason. My CPU is overclocked to 4.6GHz, however this has not been a problem AT ALL before the disk format. Right now Im running prime95 for the last hour with temperature not exceeding 73 degrees on 100% usage + no laggs nor crashes.

My main concern is MSI Afterburner. I overclock pretty much everything that is overclockable (Is that w word? D Afterburner has updated recently and so I try to get the settings same as before, however iits constructed a bit different so Im not sure If im doing it right. The "fun" part is that I dont remember whether my GPU was overclocked during the crashes or not. I had a Crash about 90 minutes ago, during which my GPU WAS overclocked. Its the only one I remember.

The error im getting is 0x00000124

Hello 0hanz33, I will try to help you. You only have one dump file, which is what we use to debug. You also failed a memtest, even though it was not the best test to use.

This bugcheck points to a fatal hardware error.

Stress test your CPU with Prime95

I recommend running Prime95 for around 2 hours



   Warning

As with most stress tests your component's temperature will rapidly increase.
It is advised that you download a temperature monitoring program like HWmonitor
Keep an eye on your temperatures and stop the tests if it starts to overheat

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes



   Warning

Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

Memtest86 will test your RAM



   Information

Run Memtest86 for at least 8 passes so we get enough information to confirm that your RAM isn't failing

Run a Disk Check to scan for errors



   Note

Afterwards go into an Elevated Command Prompt (Run as administrator) and type in sfc /scannow
If it finds errors reboot and run the scan two more times

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Was a while since the last time, and my computer have more or less been stable (3,5 years). However since June this year i've got 5 so i decided to ask you to get rid of this since you're very experienced The BSOD are random. One time when i was not around the computer, often just when browsing the web. I've not got an single one when doing something "heavy", like playing CS for instance.

I've attatched an .rar with the minidump-files. Please take a look, it whould be very appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
Sunner

Hi, so I have done quite a bit of browsing over this problem checked out several threads in regards my issue and found no solution.

And in Event Viewer it is showing the fatal error is to do with Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power. I have seen no references to this in any of the threads I have looked at.

So some advice on fixing this problem is much obliged. My system is currently overclocked to 4.5ghz and seeing as the reported error within EV has power in it I figure maybe that is the cause of the problem.

But my system does not always crash, I think I get one a week or so. This could be doing anything to be honest.

Most recently (this evening) I was playing Diablo 3 and boom my system crashed on me.

I have attached the BlueScreenView text file from my most recent crash. I have also attached SF Diagnostics information as suggested in another thread.

My drivers are up to date as far as I am aware, I am going to to check this now. I have no malware or viruses. And heat isn't an issue either.

Hello and welcome MrDomRocks no expert mate but did find this A "0x00000124" Stop error message occurs when you use the "hot plugging" feature to add or to remove a PCI Express device on a Windows Server 2008-based computer or on a Windows Vista-based computer

If you Google that error plenty of hits for it too.

Hello

Since 25-01-2013 I have received around 40 BSOD. I know it is most likely a hardware error because of the stop code but I have no idea as to which component it is so I was wondering whether any of you people could tell that out from the dump files. If it is not possible to see which component it is from the dump file how should I go about troubleshooting the problem?

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error

So from looking at the dump file we can see it is either the PCI slot or the card in the slot that is causing the failure, the best way to test is to switch out what ever card is in the slot with another one and see if you still get a BSOD.

BSOD while doing remote connect to two office computers, browsing internet and watching King Crimson video. I have done the same thing many times without a problem. It didn't seem like it was overheating - or working hard.

Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP.
Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

A:Repetitive random BSOD, 0x00000124

Hi chopp nz.

Most of all of your recent BSODs are stop 0x124; which is supposed to be a hardware error.

Are you overclocking?

Code:
CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 3.30GHz"
MaxSpeed: 3300
CurrentSpeed: 3399
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Some information is also needed:
Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy.
Do some hardware tests:

► Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

► Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

► Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

BTW, the latest BSOD is a stop 0xA, indicating some driver failure like network driver and display driver.

Hi all,

I have been having the occasional crashes in the past that I'd put down to my old graphics card not coping with the games I play.
Thing is , I've recently (this month) upgraded the card and PSU and the crashes seem to have got worse.

New PSU: Corsair AX760i Digital ATX '80 Plus Platinum' Modular Power Supply.
New Card:Gigabyte Radeon R9 290X OC WindForce 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

I can't seem to reproduce the crashes, and they seem to happen fairly randomly - when I'm gaming , when I'm just browsing the net , indeed when the machine is just idling and doing nothing.
So I'm hoping you guys might be able to shed some light.

I've run Furmark for 30 mins without any issues and memtest for 8 hours , again no issues

Thanks for taking the time out to have a look.

I have had a lot of issues lately with BSOD crashes.

This is currently happening 4-5 times a day.

I was gone out of town for a few days and when I came back it had a crash error of hardware.
Restarted PC and a few hours later it crashed the same again.

I have had it happen before when I had memory managment crashes but this was never resolved with same setup.

Here is what have tried to fix or troubleshoot the issue.
Turned off any overclocking of processor or ram.
Checked all cards to make sure they are seated correctly.
Ran virus scans on software.
Removed Dimms out one at a time until crashing happened.
Cleared any dust that may of clogged fans..(minor dust only I clean regularly)

The last crash it seemed to be something with my motherboard , since it seemed to reset when I restarted. (restarted power and hesitated then had to restart again).

Any help with any thing I may of missed would be great.

Hi,

I have been facing issues with BSOD for about a week now, and they seem to keep on occuring. The screen comes up randomly, but happens more often when i switch on the computer, from sleep/hibernate mode or start it after having shut it down. I have done some due dilligence on my end, and it has not really worked thus far. I have changed/replaced my RAM and hard drive. Reinstalled my windows from scratch (re-partitioned the hard drive). Initially this started happening when i had a windows 8 installed, i then removed it and then installed a windows 7 professional 32bit, and in an act of desperation re-installed windows a 2nd time to Windows 7 prfessional 64bit, but the BSOD has gone no where.

I have also updated the drivers, the BIOS, and reset my bios to default to ensure my processor is not overclocked.

I have used blue screen view, and it blames the ntoskrnl.exe.

I have also configured the driver verifier as had been suggested on some other forums but that hasnt seemed to help my issue either.

I would really appreciate if someone here can help me with this issue. I have really run out of options here.

Hello everybody ! I've been browsing this forum in the past but decided to make an account today. I need help with a BSOD that I've started getting a few times.

This error arises only when playing MW2 ONLY and that too randomly ! At other times I play mw2 without any problem whatsoever.

Other more taxing games and benchmarks run perfectly fine !
eg. Crysis 2, Bad Company 2, Unigine Heaven Benchmark, Alien vs Predator Benchmark and nearly every other game I have.

CPU is overclocked at 4.5Ghz with max temps 65 to 67C, is p95 stable, checked atleast for an hour.
GSkill 8GB Rams are at stock 1600Mhz. GPU clocks are at stock. Using latest Nvidia drivers 280.36. Nearly every component is relatively new, only 2 months old.

Attached are the dump files and perfmon.html files as outlined in the sticky BSOD thread.

Really appreciate if anybody could help identifying the cause. I just hope it's not faulty hardware. I can play more taxing games without any problem. Heck I even played Battlefield 3 Alpha trial without any problem!

Thanks alot in advance !

I have been having constant restarts / blue screens over the past month. It seems to have occurred more when I had windows 8.1 installed but once i downgraded to windows 7 these occurrences did not happen as frequently.

System will simply restart after a few hours of use sometimes within a hour there is no real pattern of usage that occurs at the time. I could be playing world of warcraft or minecraft to watching youtube or simply surfing the net and it will either restart or completely freeze no ability to use the mouse or keyboard needing a soft reboot.

Hello, this is my first post so I hope I'm doing it correctly.

I get BSODs frequently (maybe once or twice a week) but I can't seem to relate them to anything in particular. Sometimes it happens browsing, sometimes after I play some games... I can't see a specific pattern.

I've noticed that sometimes the audio freezes and starts looping the same "frame" over and over, and then the BSOD appears. Another strange thing is that my computer doesn't restart when the BSOD happens.

I've uploaded some files but they have older BSOD dumps as well. The relevant BSOD dumps are the most recent (since October). I had a problem a while back that made BSODs happen almost once a day, but I found it was a combination of faulty RAM and using RAM from different manufacturers. That issue should be solved now.

My biggest fear is that the culprit turns out to be my GPU, I hope I don't need to replace it. That's just a wild guess though.

Hope you can help me. Thanks.

Counterfeit installations such as yours can contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSODs and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSODs far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them.

I've stripped it down to the bare components, done memtest86 on the memory, Prime95 for the CPU, FurMark for the GPU, disk check on the HD's, etc., and none have failed. I even switched from eSATA to USB3 for the external drives (and disconnected them completely). I've tried looking at the data in BlueScreenView, but I can't figure out what it means. So, attached is the info collected per the stickied instructions. Can anyone decipher what's going on? Thanks!

Hi all,

Firstly thanks for reading. I'm ready to pull my hair out!

So i've built a PC, using the specs in my profile. And for the first day or so, it ran without a hitch, then came the dreaded 0x0124 BSOD I've done some research to try and isolate the problem but i've been totally unsuccessful.

I've changed the CPU, Motherboard, Ram, and CPU cooling fan with brand new parts and it still happens.

The computer is running totally stock with no overclocks at all. I've ran a PSU calculator and i definitely have enough headroom to run my parts.

I have also ran MEMTEST86, granted, not until completion, but there were no errors for the length of time i tried it for, plus, both RAM and mobo have been changed.

The strange thing is, is that sometimes the PC will run for 3/4 days without a hitch, then all of a sudden the BSOD will happen multiple times a day. I have also reformatted Windows multiple times and reformatted the drive properly.

I hope someone can offer some advice. I've built many a-pc in my time, and I am absolutely stumped!

Sometimes this happens when running games, or photoshop, but it can also happen while the computer is idling.

Thanks in advance,

Sam

A:BSOD 0x00000124 since building new PC - Happens seemingly at random

0x124's are typically related to a hardware issue and can only be isolated by stress testing the major components.
If overclocking, reset all overclocks back to their default settings and then follow these:
RAM - run for a minimum of 8 consecutive passes
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
CPU - run the HIGH test
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest
Video - run the FURMARK test for 20mins
Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Storage - run the SHORT test using the DOS version

Hello there,

I replaced my old video card with a nvidia 770 evga and the temperatures on it are much better. No overheating is occurring on any of my pc components.

I am still getting bsod with stop code 124. Attached new zip file.

To recap, just about every component has been replaced except for my power supply. There is no overclocking and all temps are fine when stressed. Since the video card has been replaced, no more screen tearing to BSOD have been observed. It seems to occur randomly when gaming and when not gaming, just browsing internet, etc.

Hi there,

I have been getting BSOD (mainly 0x00000124 with occasional 0x0000004a) for about a month now. I've done several things to rule certain hardware components out, but am still unable to pinpoint the culprit. When it happens my computer bogs down for a few seconds before BSOD. Sound will stutter oddly and windows will not respond to clicking start button or resizing windows etc. My monitor displays a bunch of horizontal colors then BSOD.

A:Random BSOD error 0x00000124 with quite a bit of testing done

Welcome to SF .

There is only one bug check in the file uploaded as well as only one is logged
in the System Event log (i guess because it's a fresh install) too bad that wiped any evidence
that was left behind, however the bug check (uploaded) is not 0x124 rather it's 0x24.
I would like to have some more to get more perspective.

What you're describing sounds like a thermal issue / RAM / Motherboard.
When you got the horizontal lines (artifacts) on the screen, was it with the dedicated
GPU installed or while using the onboard graphics?
Does it always display those before it bug checks?
Where did you obtain the installation media?
Did you try a different one?


Fill out this form and post back the result:
Power Supply Calculator

Test for thermals and stability:
Download Speccy and post a Screenshot of the summary window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).


Reset the BIOS back to default in case you're unaware that your CPU is overclocked:CLR CMOS


   Note
Write down the current value of the SATA Mode!
Its either AHCI or IDE.
After resetting the CMOS go back and verify the value for SATA Mode is what it was
when the OS was installed.

If any component is overclocked reset it back to stock speeds!

I get this BSOD when I leave my computer to render videos on sony vegas overnight. It usually doesn't give me the BSOD, but every third time I leave it overnight to render it gives me this BSOD.
It has started doing it after I overclocked my CPU to 4GHz from 3.2GHz only by chancing my FSB from 200 to 250. If I try to overclock even more it usually gives me BSOD code 0x0000007E.
Otherwise my computer works fine, I did Memtest86 for 12 rounds it didn't find any problems and I also used Prime95 for 1 hour and it said that everything is fine.

A:BSOD 0x00000124 During random times when rendering

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Wait for another BSOD now. Upon the next bsod, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus and Display Fusion.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
If you use any system clean-up tool like CCleaner or TuneUp, dont run it before you upload the next BSOD.

After a couple of hours I experienced BSOD with error 0X00000124 without knowing where to search.
I've already run Prime95 like 30 minutes in hardes test, memtest86 with 1 pass without errors.

Hay guys,

My computer recently has been getting the BSOD and not too sure as too why this is occurring, as i have built a pretty good system and only up until late last year its started happening but more often now

i receive the STOP 0x00000124 message randomly whilst using my computer or i've also noticed when i wake it up from 'sleep'

i understand this is error is hardware? so i updated most drivers and performed some stress tests (which passed) and still get it

any clue guys i need my comp for heavy work load

the latest dump file is uploaded here Zippyshare.com - 041011-82337-01.dmp

I have been experiencing random BSOD on my PC for several months. In an effort to resolve the issue, I have formatted the SSD and reinstalled Windows7 (home edition) with all the latest drivers. I ran Memtest86 (it took about 4 hours, and it showed 0 errors). I was still getting BSOD, so I formatted and reinstalled windows using only the driver set on the motherboard CD (system is 1.5 years old). With only anti-virus installed on the fresh Windows install, I still got BSOD. It seems that it crashes with old or new drivers.

Since then, I have updated most of the drivers, and also ran Checkdisc on the SSD and storage HD. Both tests passed error free. This weekend I removed and re-seated the video card, processor, and memory. I have 4 sticks of DDR Ram (4GB each), so I removed 2 of them for testing (running 8GB now). Since then, I got a BSOD again. I was unaware that mini-dump is 'off' by default, and only have one dump to post here. It has crashed a few times since this dump file was generated, but Windows has not generated another dump file, and I don't know why.

First thing is uninstall Driver Max and any other 'speed up windows' type software. Those programs will cause many problems rather than fix anything. Download driver from Asus web site only or the Manufacturers web site.

Next, reinstall you Chipset drivers and all USB drivers from Asus web site for your board.

You say you ran memtest for 4 hours. It takes a minimum of 8 complete passes to completely test your ram. You have 16 GB and that will take 18-20 hours or more to complete 8 passes. This will tell you how to run memtest86+.
Please Run Memtest86+

Please download from this site only http://www.memtest.org/ in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter.

I've been having an issue for a few months now where my monitor will randomly flicker lines of pixels while I'm playing games or even when I'm just on the desktop. Eventually my PC will freeze up displaying a solid block of colour (not the BSOD screen), sometimes with lines of pixels going across. I've attached my latest .dmp file.

It's worth noting that when the screen freezes up, even though I can't see what is going on applications on windows remain running for a bit. I know this because when the screen freezes I can still talk to people on Skype . Eventually though there is a loud buzzing sound, and windows shuts itself down. I never actually see the BSOD because my monitor remains corrupted.

Things I have tried to fix the issue
- A different monitor - Ended up seeing the exact same random graphical glitches on the monitor, though don't remember whether it ever got to the point of crashing my PC

- Switching from a HDMI to DVI cable and back, neither improved the monitors flickering
- Running on integrated graphics fixed the problem, thus leading me to suspect the GPU
- Sent the GPU back to the company where I bought the PC ADMI, and they sent it back saying 'no faults were found' with the GPU after sending it to their technical team
-Also I'm certain my diplay drivers are installed correctly, I'm using the Catalyst omega 14.12 drivers from AMD, and have also tried the newer beta drivers but they didn't help the problem

A:BSOD 0x00000124 seemingly random occurrences

All your crashes are identical in that the PCI-Express bus is reporting an unexpected connection completion because the connection timed out. I personally am not familiar enough with PCI-E WHEA errors to get the nitty gritty on exactly what device caused it, but I do know the USB thing with the monitor hubs can be involved because often - especially on OEM mobos - the USB bus is made as an extension of the PCI-E bus, so if there's a USB problem it can manifest as a PCI-E error. The video card can also be involved here because of the PCI-E bus it's connected too. Again, I cannot be sure what is what.

Previous experiences I've dealt with involving this have involved dust or some other debris getting in a PCI-E slot or that a card is not seated properly. Re-seat cards and make sure slots and card connectors are nice n clean. Make sure USB ports also don't have anything iffy in them.

I recommend we work on a process of elimination here with the USB devices, or do it backwards and start testing with one of the monitors and its associated hub and see if it bugs out again. I also recommend - if you haven't already - to update BIOS and chipset drivers as well as drivers associated with the USB and/or PCI-E buses as those may have fixed instability issues. Either way, just contemplate on what just may be causing connection timeouts on the PCI-E/USB bus and work with that. Typically I've found it's due to a physical connection issue, but it can just as well be related to any drivers ... Read more
