BSOD all of a sudden after 3 months after installing Windows 7, 0x124

Q: BSOD all of a sudden after 3 months after installing Windows 7, 0x124

Hi guys,

I was wondering if you can help on my problem, I have tried doing the suggestions on most of the threads here but i still get the 0x124 error. I have tried and passed memtest86+ and prime95 as well. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have also attached the files as instructed on BSOD - Posting Instructions.

Windows 7 Ultimate
- x86 (32-bit)
- the original installed OS on the system was Windows XP (formatted during installation of Windows 7
- full retail version
- 5 year old system after 3 months
- OS was installed 3 months ago

Preferred Solution: BSOD all of a sudden after 3 months after installing Windows 7, 0x124

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: BSOD all of a sudden after 3 months after installing Windows 7, 0x124

System Age:
BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 0306, 9/5/2007
Due to the system's age, first make sure that hardware is compatible with Windows 7: Windows 7 Compatibility: Software Programs & Hardware Devices: Find Updates, Drivers, & Downloads -> Download and run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor.
Device Concerns:
MpKsl4fa04efa ROOT\LEGACY_MPKSL4FA04EFA\0000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
It appears you have an issue with the Microsoft Security Essentials installation.
Software Concerns:
Start Menu\Programs\Driver Detective
We do not recommend automated driver update software. It often finds drivers for devices similar to but not exactly the same as the hardware actually on the system. This can lead to conflicts and blue screen crashes. If you need help finding driver updates for a certain device, please start a thread in Drivers - Windows 7 Forums instead of using software. Driver updates are not always necessary and some updates can actually decrease system stability rather than increase it, so it is usually better not to update unless a device or its driver is causing problems with the system. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Analysis:BugCheck 0x116
This crash is DirectX/graphics card related. DirectX comes installed with Windows, so this may indicate Windows corruption. It may also be that you have corrupted drivers or a graphics card hardware problem.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.
Follow the steps for Diagnosing basic problems with DirectX. To re-install your display card drivers as outlined in the DirectX link, use the following steps.
Download the drivers you want for your display card(s)
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Uninstall a program
For NVIDIA:Uninstall the NVIDIA Graphics Driver (this should uninstall all NVIDIA software and drivers)
Restart your computer
Make sure NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver, NVIDIA 3D Vision Video Player, NVIDIA HD Audio Driver, and NVIDIA PhysX System Software are not still listed under Uninstall a program through Control Panel
If any remain of the above, uninstall one at a time
If asked to restart after uninstalling any of the above, do so, and continue uninstalling any remaining NVIDIA items until all are removed

For AMD:Uninstall AMD Catalyst Install Manager if it is listed (this should remove all AMD graphics software and drivers)
If AMD Catalyst Install Manager is not listed, use the following method to uninstall the graphics drivers (this applies to onboard graphics, as well):Click Start Menu

It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds. If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

The above quote was taken from http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post280172, which is linked to in usasma's thread about this error. Closely follow the first three posts of usasma's thread outlining STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting and proceed through each step. Let us know if you need further help.
BugCheck 0x124
You have a 0x124 hardware bugcheck. If the system is still under warranty, I would recommend sending it in to have diagnostic tests done and any bad hardware replaced.

Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

For your hardware stop 0x124 crash, read through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following hardware checks to supplement that link.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

If you have an SSD, make sure the following are up to date:SSD firmware
BIOS Version
Chipset Drivers
Hard disk controller drivers/SATA drivers
If you have a Marvell IDE ATA/ATAPI device, make sure the drivers are up to date from the Intel site or Marvell site and not from your motherboard/vendor support site.

Run all but the advanced tests with SeaTools for HDDs.SeaTools for Windows

SeaTools for DOS
Monitor temperatures during the following tests. Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures. Real Temp is a good CPU temperature monitor.
Speccy - System Information - Free Download will monitor all hardware temperatures.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 - Hardware Information and Analysis Tools can be inaccurate for CPU temperatures, but is a good program for GPU temperature monitoring.
Use FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net to test the graphics card GPU. Let it run until the GPU temperatures even out or until the GPU temperatures reach a dangerous level (you can find the max temperature for your card on either the nVidia or AMD sites; if you are not sure, ask us). The goal is to get a steady temperature, find out if the GPU is overheating, or to see if there are any artifacts present in the test itself: look for strange pixelated patterns on the screen or colors that do not look like they belong. Then use the |MG| Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116 Download to test your graphics card memory. Let the memory test run for at least seven passes; the more the better.

Run Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 to determine any hardware problems. Run all three tests for a few hours each. If you get errors, stop the test and post back here.

Follow the steps for doing CPU stress test using IntelBurnTest

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

For Part 3: If You Have Errors: If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:Shut down and turn off your computer.
Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Remember to read closely through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try for the crash.

You Already Did Some Steps:Before you get frustrated with me for not reading your first post, I did read it, and I know you did some of the steps above. Make sure you did them as outlined above. For instance, Memtest86+ should be run for 7-10 passes, but you did not specify how many passes you ran. You also did not say which of the Prime95 tests you ran and for how long. Small FFTs, In-Place Large FFTs, and Blend should each be run for at least three hours.

I'm hoping you guys can help me out here. I'm getting random BSODs, more often when doing random stuff like installing software or virus scan. Doesn't happen too often while stressing the system with IntelBurnTest. Sometimes, it also happens while the system is idle. I've already tried to analyze the minidumps and I think it's a problem with the cpu cache, but I would like to rule out any other possibilities. Thanks for taking the time to help.

-- happens extremely randomly. It seems to happen more when idling than gaming but I could be imagining that.

I have a hunch it's AMD drivers....

I'm wondering if anyone can look at dump files and see if there's signs that show that?

I'm running prime95 now and it's been fine for 2 hours so far. I'm running OC'd but I've been running overclocked for a year now. So I doubt it's the CPU faulting out of no where, especially with prime running fine.

It's a 2500k overclocked to 4.5GHz and I'm at 65C under load w/ prime 95.

I have 2x 6950's. Those are overclocked and HAVE been overclocked as well since the CPU- nothing new besides it possibly being the new cap drivers for AMD....

Thoughts from analyzing the dump files?

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

Hi all,

I purchased Windows 7x64 Professional last night. I downloaded it and burned the DVD, I had to use a workaround to burn the DVD due to the fact that I have XP 32bit installed. Once the DVD was burned I began the installation. As soon as I selected the HDD to install on and Custom installation, I hit next. The install began and I got the BSOD when it was expanding the installation files.

I have been a PC Tech since I was 10, I'm A+,MCSE and DCSE Certified, so I'm sure you will be able to see why this is aggravating me so badly.

Here are the Details I got from the BSOD:

The system encountered an uncorrectable hardware error

STOP: 0X00000124

This occurs before there are files on the HDD, so there is no minidump.

This problem has occurred in several places in the installation, I've experienced it in the following locations:

- Before the installation is fully loaded
- As soon as the HDD options appear
- Every time I click on the link that says "Drive Options (Advanced)"
- When the install is Epanding Installation Files
- After the installation has rebooted the machine and begun the setup. (I don't know how it got this far, but one of the times it did)

Hello all,

It all started when I came from school a few days ago and turned on my computer. once I did windows notified me that it needed to be restarted to install important updates. I resarted and was met with BIOS message saying that there was some error in the Compatibility support module. I changed the setting to fix it and once I restarted the bios error was no longer there but instead I was met with a BSOD 0x124. Unfortunately now every single time I restart it gives me this error. I can not access windows which is the reason I have not attached Andy dump files.

Sorry for the long post.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Samsung RF510 laptop; really nice and plays games nicely, but as of yesterday I've had a problem.

Whenever -anything- that runs causing the fan to start roaring and the vents to get hot, the laptop will suddenly shut down after just 10 minutes. It could be games, I could be rendering a video in sony vegas, doesn't matter.

Thing is, the corner where the vents were would always get really hot on my laptop and this has never posed a problem before; only now it is suddenly shutting down. It's never done this before yesterday, and I mean never. Even a week straight of 5 hours of Borderlands on max settings every night never caused an issue.

Would blowing compressed air into the vents help? Is there a known issue (I did LOTS of searching all day, though it only found people with similar problems who haven't fixed them)? should I try something else completely?

I would appreciate any advice! I can provide additional specs if necessary.

Hi guys, I have this PC with this spec:

RAM - 2x kingston 2GB DDR3
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad CPU
PSU - SimCool 430W

My problem is that my PC starts to give me sudden shut down problem. no warning, no nothing, just shut down like when we pull the power plug.

I went to the shop where I bought this PC to check for any hard drive error, and they said nothing is wrong with it. they gave me a new power cable, the PC lasted for a 1 or 2 days without the problem.

And then now it started to give me this problem all over again.

Any comments or speculation on where the problem is?
anything i need to know to fix this?

Thanks for the help guys =)

A:Sudden shut down problem after not being turned on for 2 months

It could be any number of issues. What are your system temperatures? Sudden shut-downs can be caused by an overheating CPU.

Use HWMonitor to check your temps. If they're under control then it may be a problem with the PSU.

I just finished a build and the computer booted fine. I can access the BIOS no problem; when I tried to install Windows 7 pro, however, I would get the BSOD with error 0x124. After a few failed attempts, I took out the video card (Asus R9 390), and was successful in installing the OS. Now I get periodic BSOD. They seem to happen periodically and at random times. When I'm browsing, while drivers are being installed, or I'll walk away for a few minutes and come back to a restarted computer.

What can I do to get rid of this issue? any help would be greatly appreciated.

So far I've tried unplugging and replugging everything.
I also did a memory check (mdsched.exe) but it turned up nothing.

My build is on my profile description, and I'm attaching the zip file containing the error info.

Thanks in advance!

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 instructions. Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.

5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "false positive" 0x124 events where the hardware wasn't complaining but Windows thought otherwise (because of the bug). At the time of writing, Windows 7 is not known to suffer from any such defects, but it is nevertheless important to always k... Read more

While you still can back up as much data as you can onto CD or DVD.
A page is a fixed length block of memory
transferred between physical RAM and storage.

The page fault refers to a particular block its address in Hex form.

Download a copy of memtest and burn the ISO to CDROM. You need to boot from the CD and give your memory a thorough test.


I'd also make sure that you are not overclocking your memory or system, as its 6 months old, you may still have warrantry. Sometimes memory errors can be cleared by removing and re-inserting memory modules.

After countless years of re-installing windows with never needing to remove the second HDD from my system, I finally get a new PC and the entire story changes. Error code 0x80300024.

So I get my new PC with windows 8.1 preinstalled. I purchase a fresh copy of Windows 7. I have 3 internal mechanical HDDS and one solid state drive. Subsequently, I install windows 7 to the ssd without an issue. I then decide to reinstall 7 once again, but this time, I get the error that windows cannot be installed.

Mind you, I have never EVER gotten this error on my 5 year old desk top pc.

So after tirelessly searching forums, I came to the conclusion that I needed to disconnect all HDDS prior to installing windows, then it installs without a hitch. What gives? I didn't have to do any HDD disconnects when installing windows 7 the first time, and never needed to disconnect anything when completing this task on my old pc, so why the sudden change? Will I have to deal with this crap with a windows 10 fresh install, too.

I have never had to do this before on any system I have ever installed Windows that had multiple hdds.

I do however, use imaging software, but sometimes, on a rare occasion, I might just want to use the DVD just in case or just because.

A:All of a sudden needing to unplug HDDS when installing windows?

I mean, I've literally spent HOURS reading threads. I read ones saying it doesn't matter and ones saying the other drives must be connected.... but I barely seen ones indicating that windows will AUTOMATICALLY refuse the installation. At worst, I've just seen ones that he said windows might install some files on a second HDD, but nothing along the lines of not being able to reinstall the system at all.

I have the Asus Z97 Deluxe btw.

Hi Folks,
I have been running Windows 7 on a machine I built couple of years ago without any hassles. Since last weekend, I started having CMOS errors and the dreaded BSOD either after windows has started or shortly thereafter. As a result I have been searching for possible soultions on the web and came across Combofix this morning.
I naively thought it would just fix as I suspected a virus or similar, unfortunately no luck. Upon further reading I noticed that I should have perhaps been told to run it and would then know what to do next.

I have a log file from combofix, where to or whom should i post it for analysis and help?

A:Windows 7 Sudden BSOD

ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look hereUnlike what many people think, Combofix is not a fix-all program that's just "run and done". It is a highly specialized tool that should only be used under the supervision of an expert. It's not an "everyday use", clean-all program.If you suspect malware, please post a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs sub-forum, with a description of the issues you are having and the log file. Please note: the Malware Response team are always overwhelmed, and it could take a few days to get your first reply. Just be patient and don't "bump" your topic by replying to it. You will also likely be scolded for running Combofix without supervision.If you don't suspect malware and just ran Combofix for no good reason, please uninstall it by typing the following into the "Run" box and pressing Enter: combofix /uninstall. In this case, we will try to diagnose your problems here in the Windows 7 sub-forum.

While attempting an installation of my mail client yesterday, the system crashed with the titled BSOD. I've included the analysis of the dump and a screenshot of the suspected drivers that it seemed to complain about below.

Since the driver that it pointed at is called a Vista driver, I imagine that it is talking about the Nvidia driver, because the download says that it is for Vista/W7.

This sort of crashed has happened previously, but a bit differently. Before, it always pointed to nvlddmkm.sys, instead of to 0x124, and this time it wouldn't boot to desktop until after running chkdsk /r. It just hung at the login window, which particularly concerns me, because that indicates that it damaged something in the OS.

I've never found a solution for these types of crashes before, but I'm wondering if upgrading the video card would help, or if it is common with all Nvidia video cards?

A:0x124 BSOD

It is probably a hardware issue
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Your previous crashes with nvlddmkm.sys suggest bad/incorrectly RAM or a faulty GPU

Hi everyone,

I've recently built my first system and installed Windows 7. I wonder if any of you experts could kindly assist? I'll try posting in hardware and Windows 7 support as I'm not sure where to go next. I've been googling this error for a couple of weeks now and I'm non the wiser. (Google led me here!).

I'm having frequent 0x00000124 BSODs and I'm trying to go through all the possibilities. The system usually crashes under load (GTA4) but sometimes just for no particular reason.

I don't wish to overclock my system and I'm currently running the RAM at 1333Mhz with BIOS settings at AUTO. Could anyone point me in the right direction to help get things stable? The motherboard isn't the best or easiest to work with - especially for a novice like myself. The RAM seems okay (although win 7 doesn't show the value in system properties (Installed memory (RAM)), but it gives it a subscore of 7.8. The CPU temps seem okay for stock cooling but I'm using a desktop fan to cool my case with the side taken off just to make sure and it's cooled my GPU down a bit.

Intel i7 920
XFX X58i (BIOS v1.3)
Corsair 3x2Gb 1600MHz dominator RAM

A:Another 0x124 BSOD!

In this case it crashed while running AVG - not normally a problem, but you should make sure that you have the latest version of AVG (and that it's 64 bit compatible).

Are you running Driver Verifier? I ask because the dump is a "Verifier enabled" dump. If so, what settings did you use?

Normally STOP 0x124 errors are hardware errors (either a failure, an incompatibility, or a driver - in that order). I tend to suspect an incompatibility when I see traces of HAL.DLL in the stack text:

fffff880`0311dc00 fffff800`02a21cea : fffffa80`0489d650 fffff880`0311df30 fffffa80`0489d650 00000000`00000000 : hal!HalpMcaReportError+0x4c

But, this is just a guess on my part - and not supportable through any documentation that I've seen.

So, we're stuck with a hardware error that may be an incompatibility. Could you please zip up the dump file and upload the .zip file with your next post? That way we'll get a chance to massage the data in the dump file to see if it reveals anything significant.

I have a HP Probook 4310 S, 4Gb RAM, Windows Ultimate 32 bit.
Am experiencing BSOD 0x124 very frequently and randomly for the past 2 months.
Also experiencing several other BSOD codes as well.
I did a Hard Disk test from HP Diagnostics Tool.
And it mentioned failed.
Memory Test was successfull.

After boot, BSOD 0x124 occurs at any time 5 mins, 1 hour ,2 hrs.
But BSOD never occured while in safe mode. able to use safe mode for several hours.
Am worried if it is only the hard disk that has failed or the processor or the motherboard.

Also warranty expired last month and it is quite expensive to extend it.

I have reinstalled Windows 7 2 times in the past week.

I have attached recent minidumps. Please let me know.
Thanks a lot in advance.

A:BSOD 0x124


I did a Hard Disk test from HP Diagnostics Tool.
And it mentioned failed

I think you have answered half of your question..... Try doing a Disk Check as well as Post the SMART Value of the HDD here to confirm (post a snapshot)
Second all the BSOD point to like you said a Bugcheck 0x124 error...... this is a hardware errors specifically related to the processor. Since overclocking can be ruled out as the laptop doesn't have that feature.... then the only other possibility is heating ....if you check your logs you can see

ACPI thermal zone ACPI\ThermalZone\CPUZ has been enumerated.

I have been having problems with this computer ever since I bought the computer 2 years ago from Best Buy. BSoD from day one and they are still continuing today. They are here and there, sometimes many times a day. If I try to play a game on my computer, I always get a blue screen. Keep in mind that this has been happening from day one.

A couple weeks ago, I bought a new power supply and video card so I could start gaming on my desktop. I then reinstalled my OS and then installed the hardware and updated all of the drivers. As soon as I started playing games like Metro 2033 and Torchlight I started receiving all kinds of BSoDs. This also happens sometimes when watching youtube videos. I know it has nothing to do with my video card or power supply considering I was receiving the same BSoD before I installed them and from the initial purchase of my computer. I am almost certain this is a hardware error.

Here is my system info:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OEM
Original OS is same as installed
Age of system 2-3 years

I have been trying to find a solution for this for about 2 months now. So far I have:

Updated all drivers
Run Memtest (no errors)
Disabled onboard nForce LAN so I am only using the wireless adapter (strangely this worked for 24hrs but stopped after 1 day)
Checked for "cracked" software (all is legit)

I have also checked for viruses, just in case, with no luck.
Also, before it is said, disabling C1E in the BIOS did not work either.

A:0x124 BSOD

Given the age of the RAM and the Athlon II processor, I would lean toward the RAM as a likely suspect. AMD processors are very finicky about what RAM they work with. How did you determine what RAM to buy for your system?
Let's check compatibility of the RAM:Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot. To upload all screenshots, it would be best to:generate the images using the Snipping Tool,
go to where the images are saved,
right click in a blank area within the folder where the images are saved,
create a new folder,
name the folder CPUZ,
select all the images,
place the pointer over an image,
press and hold down the left mouse button and drag the image (all images should move with it),
drop the images into the CPUZ directory you created,
create a compressed (zipped) folder of CPUZ
upload the .zip file to the forums.

I am trying to pin down a 0x124 BSOD on the following system:

AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core 2.20 GHz
8gb Corsair DDR2 Ram
Windows 7 x64
3x WD 750gb+ HDD
GeForce 9800 GT 1gb

It has happened only twice, and only in the past 2 months -- the first time I thought it was a fluke, and then it happened again this morning

Both times I have experienced the BSOD, Event Viewer shows it as happening in the very early hours of the morning (this one at 4 AM)

The only process I have running then is usually a Mozy backup, but I have at times run Mozy backup for 24/7 up to a week at a time without trouble - so I do not believe it is related to that

Overall my hardware has been stable - I run my computer through several graphics and CPU intensive processes daily and it has been fine for over a year

When watching youtube or a 720p movie or just when typing something in Word. I get it if my system is running at full throttle or just idle. When i first get this error message i take it back to shop and it was there for about 2 month. When they finished they told me they tried it with an external hdd and it worked so an OS reinstall will solve my problem. You can guess its not solved anything. Since then i tried XP, Vista and Win7 32/64 bit i get the 0x124 bsod on everything except xp cuz its called 0x9c on it so i get that one, tried the latest bios from hp website, latest drivers from hp and then from the manufacturers site.. nothing worked.

Running prime95, everest without a single error. Tried OCCT and the fluffy donut test too, everything looks good from the tests.

Recently I bought a new HD 7850 GPU for my computer.

I have been getting frequent 0x124 BSODs since I installed it (but also before I bought the card...), and research tells me that it points to a hardware problem.

I am experiencing 0x124 error frequently. Can you help to check whether what hardware problem.

I already installed latest driver with Windows Update.

You may want to update your Logitech camera drivers as they are from 2008.

The only firm identification of an issue was the HDAudbus.sys - a component of your audio display - so I'd start suspecting that.

More info on troubleshooting STOP 0x124 here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

Beyond that, I'd suggest checking all your hardware for compatibility at this website: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/com...s/default.aspx

Hello i have a problem with BSOD which randomly appears regardless of workload. Some components were overclocked in the past (by previous owner) but i dont need more power so everything is running on stock values.

- Windows 7 64bit
- OS is freshly installed one week ago
- Age of hardware 3-4 years

CPU - i7-2600K
GPU - 6950 unlocked to 6970
MB - Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN 3
Power Supply - 700W Fortron Aurum

I tried to run Memtest 86 for 24 hours without any issue.

I got an error when i tried to run "SysnativeFileCollectionApp" it ended in state "Waiting for SystemInfo".

My OS is in my native language. If is it problem i can switch to english language.

Any help is really appreciated.

If you need some more information just ask i will answer ASAP.

Thank you

I'm currently having problems with the infamous 0x124 BSOD.
I started receiving this BSOD randomly about 6 days ago and the last few days its getting worse(to the point Windows won't boot without bringing up the BSOD).

I tried booting into safe mode, but the BSOD still came up.

To solve this issue I tried the following things, but with no luck:
-Removing all PCI card
-Replacing the graphic card
-Disconnecting all non-OS HDD's and Optical Drives
-Updating BIOS from factory version(1003) to 1704

I attached a zip file containing the minidumps generated by the BSOD's that happened today.

What piece of hardware/driver could be causing this issue?

System specs:

Intel Core i7 2600k @3.40ghz (Stock)
Asus P8P67 Evo Mainboard (non-Rev 3.0)
Corsair DDR3-1600 RAM 8192mb
Asus ENGTX560 Ti
Corsair 120GB SSD (Windows installation drive)
Western Digital 500gb HDD
Linksys WMP600N PCI-card
LG BD-Rewiter Drive
Age of hardware: First assembled and run on February 24, 2011

I have had only 1 hardware change since the initial build of this system which was the addition of the WMP600N card on April 29th, 2011

Windows installation:

Windows 7 Professional x64
Installed on: February 24, 2011
Type: Full
First installation on this system

A:0x124 BSOD

Added the full dump and report. Some dumps from this week that were in the Windows/Minidump folder are missing because the diskclean tool removed them apparantly

so for the past two months or so i have been experiencing problems with my pc, to start off with it used to be this weird thing as explained:
i could be gaming, i could be "youtubing", or i could be on skype, then all of a sudden all of my 32 bit programs would close, this includes skype, steam, any game i would be on at the time and google chrome. i know it only affects my 32 bit programs because when i open internet explorer (64 bit) or minecraft (with java 64 bit) it works but can be glitchy, i thought this was a problem that would go away in time, after this i upgraded my graphics card and my psu to the ones stated in my pc specs on my profile. and then recently ive been experiencing the BSOD with the error code 0x124, i found out this is a hardware error, could be to do with drivers but my drivers are all updated, or could be to do with the actual hardware. i found out other people on the internet have been experiencing the same problems with my processor that i have, does anybody know of a way to fix this problem? or does anybody know what i should do in terms of repairing broken parts? discovering what parts are broken/defective, or finding a way to just fix this problem.
thanks for the reply and i will give out resources to anyone who needs them to help them.
i also have skype if anybody wishes to help me through skype which would be a lot easier to be fair xD

I have two BSOD problems. One is random, but mostly when I loaded games like BF4 ( 0x124 ) and one that occurs after start or hybernation ( 0x9F )

CPU : Amd phenom II 965 BE @ stock
GPU : Amd Radeon HD6770 from Sapphire @ stock
MEM: 2x2GB Kingston Valureram 1333 @ stock and 2x2GB Corsair valuethingy 1333 @ stock
MB : Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 with the latest BIOS
OS : Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64

The 0x124 doesnt give a BSOD at all, just a black screen. I have to hard reboot the pc to resolve. I narrowed the 0x124 down to 0x124_authenticamd_processor_bus_prv , I guess that has to do with the processorbus? Is my processor bad ?

I tested with prime95 torture and Furmark burn for about 15 minutes ( CPU < 50c, GPU<65c )and nothing happened

The 0x9F Seems to be coming from my logitech G110 Keyboard, as 0x9f_3_power_down_usbaudio_image_usbccgp.sys seems to refer to as my keyboard has usb audio which I use.
The dumpfiles which are above 1MB are from the 0x9F, the minidumps are from the 0x124


If you can , please help

Thanks in advance ,


A:BSOD Two different types of BSOD 0x124 and 0x9F

STOP 0x124 is an error given by the processor to Windows. It doesn't mean that there's a problem with the processor - rather it's just the processor saying that it found an error. Most often these are hardware errors, but they can also be caused by low-level functions in the system related to other drivers.

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions Please use Option 1 as it provides Event Viewer logs.

Concentrate on the STOP 0x9F errors for now. Update the drivers (and any firmware) for the Logitech G15. Switch USB ports (front to rear or rear to front) in order to see if it's the ports.

For the STOP 0x124's - try these free hardware diagnostics for starters: Hardware Diagnostics

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.
NOTE: these symptoms were from the previous release of OverDrive. The new release uses the same driver name, but is dated from 4 November 2013.

I'm getting BSOD 0x124 on my Win7 system almost every windows startup. It happens before "Welcome" screen. After i get 3-4 bsod(sometimes 20-25), i can see my desktop. After it passes "welcome" screen, i get no BSOD. I stressed my CPU, played games like Battlefield 4, Assasins Creed IV on high settings, also im using AutoCAD and 3dsMAX, i can get renders etc, no BSOD while using my computer. Only at "welcome" screen and mostly 0x124, sometimes 0x101 or 0x03b, rarely 0x9c.

I tried installing Windows 8, but it gives 0x124 BSOD( WHEA Uncorrectable Error ) randomly, even while installing it. And im using Win7 now, because at least after i pass welcome screen succesfully, im able to use my computer.

My GPU and CPU settings are default. No overclock/downclock.

Hi supernova26.

Are you overclocking?

CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz"
MaxSpeed: 3400
CurrentSpeed: 3411
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

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

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.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.
eXtreme Power Supply Calculator
Also let us know the wattage of the PSU.

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. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Let us know the results.

Hi all,

I'm getting a very irritating BSoD. I recently reformatted and reinstalled Vista x86 and have been getting random BSoDs that I didn't get before. It only happens when I'm playing games. Sometimes it's 5 minutes into the game, other times it takes an hour or more. Also, this could be a likely problem, but I recently bought a 2nd harddrive and set up both harddrives in a RAID 0 array. They are different sizes, however (160GB and 320GB), but I was farely certain that the size difference wouldn't be a big deal (knowing it should just treat the 320GB as 160GB). Can different brand/speed harddrives be a reason for hardware failure when setting them up in RAID? Here's my minidump.

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arg1: 00000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: 85def3f0, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: b2000040, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 00000800, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.

A:0x124 BSoD (with minidump)

I don't think your RAID array is the problem, you'd probably be having trouble booting into Windows if there was a hardware failure with your drives.

I'm guessing an issue with your graphics drivers?
Have you updated to the latest versions?
Are you using a nvidia based card or ATI based card?

I recently purchased two 1024MB 7770's, one is a Sapphire (two fans) and the other is a XFX (one fan). The Sapphire came overclocked by default so I thought there wasn't going to be any issues until yesterday. I'm casually browsing the internet when I hear the fans of my Sapphire rapidly increase in speed and I smell a slight burning smell so I immediately power off my PC as quickly as I could, left it for a few minutes and powered it back on and that's when I got the first BSOD. The Sapphire GPU was extremely hot for some reason so I just left it out in the open for it to cool down over night. It's not even like I was running anything really GPU intensive, I have two monitors setup but that's about it. One monitor for each GPU, makes sense.

If I have the Sapphire plugged in, I blue screen after the Windows logo finishes loading, a few seconds before it gets onto the logon screen. If I just have the XFX plugged in, everything runs fine as usual. I can run in safe mode with both GPU's plugged in and I can see both of them in device manager.

I've had a bit of a search around and I'm guessing it has something to do with my OC GPU but I can't turn the settings down on it if I can't actually do anything with it in safe mode or if I can't have it plugged in when I boot into Windows normally. At the moment I have it plugged in and powered but just disabled through device manager (did this through safe mode, was the only way I could).

I'm hoping that my GPU hasn't burnt out becaus... Read more

Hope that you can help me out
Thanks in advance

edit: Just had a bluescreen right after posting this :/

Non of my components are overclocked and have never been.
My new casing as the cooler master Haf X so i suppose that airflow isnt an issue
Everything is up to date
I dont think that this is a false positive due to the fact that im having blue screens really often..
I have done memtest86+, chkdsk on all my drives (took forever) no errors.
Did do clean install of windows a couple of times.

A:Random BSOD 0x124

Hello and welcome to the forums cestlavie098, I took a look at your files, and so you know a 0x124 BSOD indicates either a Bios bug or a hardware error. So first things first, check the computer manufacturers website for Bios updates. then once you have updated the bios please run Prime95:

Free Software - GIMPS

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 you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "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).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

Also when running prime 95 be sure to use HWinfo to keep an eye on your temperatures:

Download and install HWINFO64 (I run Windows 7 Ultimate x64). Open HWINFO, and when prompted, check the Sensor Only option and then run as shown below:

HWINFO will read your system, and then open the Sensor Status panel. Locate the CPU Digital Thermal Sensor items, as ... Read more
