Preferred Solution: BSOD playing any games

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hello all,

I've been having a few problems with my laptop since I bought it. The problem mainly occurs when I'm playing a game (usually xcom: enemy unknown or deus ex HR at the moment) but has occurred when I'm browsing the internet (albeit far less often). The BSODs appear to be random but I'm using a blue tooth mouse and have noticed the BSOD will usually happened if I'm using it. I've also noticed that my laptop screen with black out for a split second on games that are quite graphics intensive for my system.

Its been frustrating me a lot so I reinstalled and fully updated windows 7. The GPU drivers are all up to date also.

I've attached the SF file that is required and would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time

Hello sevenforums Community,
since about month im getting Bluescreens, which never happened before in 4 years.
It usually get the when i watch streams on twitch (which didnt happen since 1 week on my account though) or currently while playing League of Legends.
But they dont come every game, so i can for example play 4 games in a row and nothing happens or i get 3 one them in one game. Also they can come at any game time. It is kind of random to me how they appear.
The last two days I got about 7 so i really need help from u guys.
In the last two weeks i always got this message (STOP : 0x00007A (0xFFFF6FC50023598,0xFFFFFFFFC000000E,0x000000002A991880,0xFFFFF8A0046B30BE) ) without a sound and the pc didnt instantly reboot.
But the last days the Blackscreen stayed like 4 second so i couldnt see the error message on it, so i dont know if the error changed but there was this buzzing sound.

I really appreciate help (and sorry for my english skills ^^)

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

I just updated and rebuilt my PC and have reinstalled Win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a BSOD while using the PC. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet.
From the program Blue Screen Viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769
I can not find any solution to fix this issue, I have updated drivers, I have ran the Microsoft memory checker, , I have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, I even changed motherboards, got the errors on both SSD and HDD. The only things I haven't changed out is the PS and CPU, since I am using the PC to write this I am ruling out the CPU as the issue.

I have used Memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and CPU, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. They are included in the attachement

It seems to be software/driver issue but I can not figure it out.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Hello guys. So here is my issue i dont really know how to specific it further then this still hope it will help.

I have been getting BSOD for a while now and it's getting to the point i cant do a single thing on the computer. I did the config for dumps and so on and ended up with this RAR file with all the info i assume. I mostly get the bluescreen when i try to watch anime etc on googlechrome. It never works it's a matter of seconds before the BSOD comes. But when watching it on other browsers like opera it works just fine "mostly" even there it bluescreens from time to time. And then there is when it's most fatal, Playing onlinegames. Whenever I play online games like World of warcraft, League of Legends, Heroes of Neweart etc etc etc i risk getting bluescreens. It differs very much from game to game how often the bluescreens appear and it seems to not be preformance related since sometimes i play constantly for hours when maxing out games and pushing the computer to it's limits when it comes to frames. And still the bluescreen lies in dorment waiting for a more suitable interrupt for me. From the looks of it the bluescreen is related mostly to my operatingsystem more then commponents after i looked at the dumpfiles via "Bluescreenviewer".

I'm pretty clueless when it comes to this and i hope you guys can help me with this. also this is my first post so I maybe did this typical "bad thread", Still i hope this will get me atleast closer to... Read more

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:

Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on.

Hello, first time poster looking for help as I can't diagnose my issue after trying numerous things. Currently when I play a game the BSOD happens randomly, I can go a whole day without it, or it can happen frequently. It happens the most when I close or exit a game, then it'll kick to a blue screen.

I really appreciate what you guys do and I hope I followed all the instructions right on how to post my logs and stuff, here's the attachment and some basic system specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I have reinstalled to this computer numerous times.

Before we can even begin to find the underlying cause you need to update the following drivers. Especially asacpi.sys. Yours is from 2005

ASACPI.sys 3/27/2005 10:30:36 PM
Lycosa.sys 1/18/2008 4:51:42 AM
nvm62x64.sys 10/17/2008 5:01:06 PM
netr28x.sys 2/25/2009 11:02:09 PM
How To Find Drivers:

- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

So first of all, I am not a computer wizard. Some terms I might not understand as i've never had a problem like this before, but i'll try to enlist as much information as possible.

Since last friday or so, i've suddenly encountered a BSOD. Now, i've had them before and it was only once. After a reboot it usually never happend again and everything was cool. But since friday, they popped up again. Mainly during playing Battlefield 1, but i've also had it happen during Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2.

I've had multiple BSOD errors, which are:


Now if it were one, I might've been able to pinpoint the issue, but.. They're constantly different errors that happen. Now, to explain a bit more in detail how it goes:

So i'm just playing a match of Battlefield 1. After 10/15 minutes give or take, it'll bring me to the blue screen. After processing whatever it has to process, computer shuts down and it starts to restart. At this point it will be stuck in an infinite restart loop, where my monitor will not display anything as well. It just says it's not connected to something, which it clearly is. After manually closing and rebooting, i'll have to do this a few times or mess with the HDMI a little bit before I get my monitor to pop up again. Once that happens, I get stuck in the beginning screen where you can see your HDD/SSD installed. It won't go further than that unless I ... Read more

Hi guys! I badly need your help. I started getting BSOD two weeks ago. As far as I can remember the first time I had a BSOD was on the day I installed Max Payne 3 (I read somewhere that the some guy had also this problem when he installed max payne). There were two occasions that I got a BSOD upon starting Max Payne 3. But lately I'm getting BSOD when doing low-load stuffs like browsing with no other apps opened. I've already done memtest with 10 passes with no errors. I'm 24 hours prime95 stable. I just don't get it! I've manually set my timings for my ram. I'm not doing any overclock.

Short version: My PC is getting a BSOD at random times when full screen gaming. The BSOD screen says the video card times out.

Long Version:
I have a gaming PC that a friend generously gave me when he built a new one. It's worked great, but in November the Tagan ITZ 700 watt power supply died. He had planned to do SLI and never did, so during Neweggs holiday sale I picked up a Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 thinking it should be sufficient.

Everything has run smoothly with the new PSU except for the fact that when playing games like Torchlight 2 and Starcraft 2, my machine will BSOD. I had random BSOD's with Starcraft 2 and then suddenly had 4 nights in a row with no problems and then today it keeps crashing at the same spot in the campaign. There is little consistency to the crashes other than that and under normal operations, like email, web browsing, etc, it has only BSOD'd once and that was during a youtube video.

My first thought is that the one thing that has changed recently is the PSU and prior to that I only recall a rare crash here and there. I thought maybe my new PSU wasn't good enough, but everything I've read online about the requirements for the GTX 460, including the manual, say 450 watt minimum and I exceed that.

Here is a list of things I have tried:

- Updated video card and mobo drivers, I have also uninstalled the nvidia drivers, run Driver Sweeper in safe mode, and reinstalled drivers in normal mode.
- Ran GPU-Z to look at temperatures and ran... Read more

I keep getting BSODs when I play games for a short while. At first I thought it was a bad installation of Windows, so I did a clean format (full) of my SSD and a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Installation failed quite a few times before finally succeeding. Tried another copy of Windows 7, same install failures. I finally finished reinstalling Windows 7 on my PC. I suspected the RAM to be at fault so I ran MemTest86+ and found a ton of errors. Upon closer inspection of the BIOS settings, I found that my board was clocking my ram in [Auto] mode at 1333mhz instead of the factory 1600mhz (Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 @1600 CAS9 on Asus Sabertooth Z77). I updated my BIOS to the latest as of this posting and I still have to manually set the memory frequencies for it to run at 1600mhz.

Everything seemed fine for a few hours running prime95. I supposed my PC was fine now after that clean install of Windows 7, but a few minutes into playing Battlefield 3, I BSOD. I am no pro at reading dump files and I was hoping someone could help me isolate the sources of my BSODs. I've attached the minidump files for each BSOD below. Thanks!

Hello, I have a question. My Lenovo Yoga 720 15.6" doesn't overheat, although I've noticed something rather odd. When I play Fifa 17 with the charger plugged in, the fans are very loud and the laptop gets pretty hot. When I play Fifa 17 on battery only (charger not plugged in) the fans are quite silent and the laptop doesn't get hot at all. Why is that? For all I know, I would expect the exact opposite...Thanks in advance!Kind regards,Tijs

No Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 70 to 140 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

You have a 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card:

I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win8/8.1 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later systems - using older drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest Win8/8.1 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

This device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Multiple Card Reader USB Device USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_MULTIPLE&PROD_CARD__READER&REV_1.00\058F63666438&0 This device is disabled.

BSOD #1: It started at around January 15th - basically when i shoot down the system, theres a suprisingly short windows update. Then whenever i boot the PC and it starts to configure the update, bluescreen pops up with an error code 0x0000007E and i have to use system recovery to succesfully run the system.

BSOD #2: Ive never fixed it and it occures since i bought the PC. When i play games (and very rarely when using internet browser) my PC is getting random freezes, display driver errors, monitor is turning off and of course sometimes BSODs happen. Ive tried several different drivers, memory/hdd tests, temperatures, stress tests, 2 different monitors and GPUs, and plugging out/in hardware inside the PC case then i gave up. So basically all the BSODs listed in a ZIP file until January 15th are related to this problem.

Your dumps don't have a probable cause, keep blaming windows files (Not true causes)

Since everything was fine with the laptop before the power failure, your best bet would be to dismantle and reconnect all the hardware components (if you're good with it) and do a fresh install of windows on your laptop

So, we see that the system was waiting to get a lock on a resource but sadly it was not fulfilled and hence the system crashed . Sadly, the dump file failed to capture the culprit in this case.

A:BSOD troubles seem to be while playing games - different BsOD codes

Hello, tbrown26. I will try to help you with this.

None of your dump files were overly definitive, as usual. The first thing I would like you to do is fill out your system specs in detail. Sometimes we have to look up a component and Manufacturer and model number helps us to do that.
Please fill out your System Specs

Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs

After completing that please open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc a... Read more

Recently i bought a new pc (specs at the end). Ever since i got it i have a nasty problem - when i try to play something (no matter what) in 90% of the cases the pc either the display freezes , the sound lags for 5 secs and then keeps going or i get a Blue Screen which shows an error in nvs4_disp.dll or Stop x100000000. Of course the first thing i did was to return the pc to the vendor but after 3 days he didnt find a thing ( mainly because he wasnt so enthusiastic about fixing somebody's pc...)...

It may simply be a case that Empires2 is causing memory corruption. That having been said, if you run these to tests it can test your ram and find the misbehaving driver.
* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have a raid update its Driver.


*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

Hello, I've been getting bsod for a few months now so I'm pretty frustrated with it, i've tried everything I can think of/found. (I updated ALL of my drivers)

My CPU gets bsod after playing only certain games, for example: when I play "World of Warcraft", after I shut down "WoW", about 2-5 mins later I'll get bsod.

I've run a ton of file scanners (CCleaner, register easy, ect.) They haven't done anything, I also have updated all my drivers with some other devices.

system specs: windows 7 home premium 64bit OS
Aspire X3400
AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 645 Processor 3.10 GHz

[if you need any other info about my pc let me know, btw the bsod errors are all different even for the same game]

Thanks for your time reading this and any help I recieve!

Hello people

I'm new to this forum and debuging my PC....I know a little more about PC than the average person, and have built my last 4 PC. But when it comes to this sort of thing i'm a NOOB, so please go easy.

I'm getting BSOD on a freshly installed version windows 7 64 bit, this is the third time now i've reinstalled the OS on to different HDD and partitions...But the end product is alway the same? Freezing and crashing when playing MW2, and BSOD when i transfer files from one HDD to another when the file or folder is over about 5GB?

I have updated the drivers, and windows, and i'm currently running with minimal programes on the system. i would normally have Photoshop, Video editing programes and lots of games on the system. As i thought one of them my be the problem i have just put MW2 on. but it stills dies on me.

the only time i have experience this before was when rendering videos with Avid, and Premier Elements 8 working on a RC verion of win 7 64 (7100). so i thought installing this would fix my problem.

I have tried reading the mini dump files but to be honest....I don't understand what it was telling me. The BSOD normally comes up with 'Merory Management' or so PF? list corupt?????

I really hope someone can help me as all i want to do is have a stable system and play some games.

Thank you

A:BSOD when playing Games


Don't worry, we tailor our posts to meet the level of the OP. If he is a real noob, we give simple, step-by-step instructions, but if he knows how to do stuff already, we leave out the details.

I see two possible causes. The first is Kaspersky. Please remove it with this tool: http://support.kaspersky.com/downloa...vremover10.zip

Replace it with the free Microsoft Security Essentials.

3rd party AV programs are notorious for causing BSODs and other crashes on Windows 7 and Vista.

The other is your outdated Conextant drivers:
CT20XUT.DLL Mon Mar 05 02:45:40 2007
ctaud2k.sys Mon Mar 05 02:45:20 2007
CTEXFIFX.DLL Mon Mar 05 02:45:38 2007

ctprxy2k.sys Mon Mar 05 02:45:23 2007
ctsfm2k.sys Mon Mar 05 02:44:52 2007
I advise updating them.

If those two things don't work, please enable driver verifier: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

Hi everybody,

I've just purchased an EVGA 7800GS video card. I have 3 games installed on my PC : WOW, HL2 and DOOM3 and i am running Win XP PRO SP2.

My PC is working fine except when i play games : DOOM3 is freezing after 5 minutes, WOW and HL2 are issuing BSOD's.

Most of the time i get a 0x8E BSOD which is involving nv4disp.dll and sometimes i get a 0x7F_D one ...

All my drivers and BIOS are up to date : i run 91.47 NVIDIA drivers.

Does anyone have an idea on how to troubleshoot this problem ?
THANKS for answering
NOTE : attached to this post you will find the last couple of my minidump files ...

A:!!! BSOD when playing games !!!

The BSOD you are getting is from the eNvidia video card I would suggest going to Nvidia's web site and getting the drivers downloaded from there and install them, if you are still getting the BSOD after that I would suggest calling their tech support and they would more than likely have a solution for your problem.

Also you might want to ask to have this thread moved to the Games forum here at TSG just click the little triangle in the upper right corner and ask for it to be moved.

I've been getting consistent blue screens every couple hours while playing games since I built my computer.

It only seems to happen when I'm playing games. I get various different reasons, (bad_pool_caller, dxmmm1.sys or something, cant remember the others offhand)
I have a feeling its all related to my graphics card. I've updated the drivers, used driver sweeper to clear out any old ones, updated some outdated drivers manually.
But it just keeps happening. I've attached everything I need... I think, I haven't done anything like this before, so please tell me if there is any other information you need.

2) Burn that on a CD, as a bootable image
3) Turn your computer off
4) Remove all but one RAM stick from your computer
5) Boot your computer with memtest cd
6) Run 8 ? 11 passes on that stick
7) Shutdown the PC
8) Take the tested RAM stick out and plug in the next RAM stick
9) Boot again with memtest CD and run 8 ? 11 passes
Repeat the process until all RAM sticks are tested individually
If time permitted, it is also good to run windows memory test as well just so that if memtest+ didn?t catch something.

Lately my computer has been producing BSOD's while playing games (error 0x000000d1 if i'm not mistaken). I can watch series (both HD and non-HD) for days straight, but when I play a game like Cod4 or Guitar Hero, I usually get a BSOD after about 30-60 minutes. Also, my CPU fan is failing right now, while it did work when I booted up my PC, which probably means it has something to do with my CPU (overheating?). I already switched my GTX 460 graphics card with an old GTX 280 graphics card, but that didnt fix the problem which means it probably isnt my GPU. The Gamecube/wii emulator Dolphin gave me a BSOD after 2 minutes of playing, and as far as I know dolphin is way more intensive than guitar hero or cod 4 because its an emulator. I also converted a 15-20 minute video with a video converter so I could watch it on my phone, which didnt give me a BSOD. Hot CPU tester pro 4 though did give me a BsoD after 30 minutes while running the CPU burn-in tool (running on 1 thread, i couldnt select more threads because i used the lite version instead of the full paid program).

The SF diagnostics tool dumps are inserted as an attachment.

any help would be grateful.

Hey, I recently built a new PC and have been having BSOD troubles in basically every game, from the decades old (Planescape Torment) to the brand new (DotA 2, LA Noire).

I have ran memory tests on the RAM which have come up completely spotless, also have re-installed graphics drivers (ASUS 7970) multiple times and even attempted a fresh install of Windows 7 (64bit). I have also updated my Motherboards BIOS. Windows is running of a Samsung 128GB SSD

The following link is some BSOD dumps from before the fresh install of windows, sorry that they are uploaded on mediafire.


And the attachment is the most recent dumps from after the install.

I would be happy to provide any more details if necessary, thankyou

Also, you have some drivers that in need for updating:

Please read this short article to know how to update ASACPI.sys

Also, I can see that you have that BSODs occur while playing games. Bugcheck code 7F can refer to third party firewall that cause it.
In looking through your drivers, I see that you have AVG anti virus installed. AVG is known to cause BSOD, on some systems. I suggest that you uninstall it while trouble shooting using the uninstall tool > Info > Tool (32bit) - Tool (64 bit). If you have AVG Identity Protection installed, uninstall it also >Info > Tool. I recommend that you install MSE and make sure Windows Firewall is turned on. (Just for testing purpose only)

Okay, I apologize for this, but I had previously typed up a VERY VERY lengthly post giving a lot of detailed information for my problem that got eaten by my horrible web browser, and now I'm extremely frustrated so I'm just going to try to sum this up as fast as I can. Sorry. If you need any more information just ask.

I get a BSOD while playing World of Warcraft on occassion. Most of the time the game simply crashes and Windows is fine (it crashes a lot). But there have been occassions that WoW will cause my computer to BSOD. The reason I'm looking for help here is because I need to know if this is just because the game itself is faulty or if my hardware/other software is causing me problems.

Make it sure that the firmware of KINGSTON SVP200S37A120G SSD is upto date.
Kingston SSDNow Drives

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.
Update your ATI/AMD display driver.
You can get it from the link in our forum, Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7, or you may go to AMD Graphics Driver and Software and opt for Automatically Detect and Install the appropriate driver for your card.

During installation, you may opt for advanced installation, and install the display driver only, not the Catalyst Control Center.
Let us know the results.

Since recently I've been having a couple of BSOD during games, 2 times once I was playing PlanetSide 2 (different days), once during Dishonored, and once during a browser game. It crashes at random intervals, PlanetSide 2 once crashed after 1 hour and 20 minutes, once after 20 minutes. Dishonored crashed after 3 hours or something like that...

I've recently bought a new video card (GTX 770). But when I installed it and its drivers, everything worked like a charm, it never gave a BSOD, I installed it around 3 weeks back and the BSOD have been starting to show up since last week.

It's very wierd and I can't seem to find the issue here. I'm using nVidia GeForce Experience to auto-update the videocard drivers. I've added the .zip file from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe.

Thanks in advance

I just had another crash, while playing Dishonored. I played around 2 hours and it crashed again. I've reuploaded the files from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe.

Its not really just BSOD I guess BSOD is a end result of the crashes I keep getting its the all too well known problem with : display driver xxx stopped responding and has recovered. I've been fighting with this problem ever since I got my new graphic card ( detailed specs later ) from time to time when I play a 3d game (doesnt have to be with really intensive graphics) the screen goes black for a couple of seconds then recovers ( unfortunately in some games it does not recover ) multiple flickers like this usually result in a BSOD. The worst thing is that its completely unpredictable and some of the newest graphic intensive games for example might not get the crash at all while others get it multiple times in a row same with some older titles ... Now theres a lot to say so I apologize for the quite chaotic post build :P Lets start with what Ive tried in order to fix or find out whats wrong:

- I tried many different NVIDIA drivers very old ones like 175 and the newest one currently 295 I think ? also many in between those 2 with no real results what sometimes seemed like a fix was just the randomness factor,

- I tried various different settings changes to the NVIDIA control panel which I found on the internet as theres tons of people having similar problem but theres just as many fixes,

- I bought a new PSU a 600W Thermaltake TR2 Bronze which supplies more than enough power,

- I tried different cords with no real result,

- I checked for viruses and I formatted and instal... Read more

A:BSOD while playing various games

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

If you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps.

If you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider.

This is usually heat related, defective hardware, memory or even processor though it is"possible" that it is driver related (rare).

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:

1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.
2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled.
If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.
3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware.
It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.
4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instruct... Read more
