BSOD when playing games intensive games 0x00000124

Question: BSOD when playing games intensive games 0x00000124

A friend of mine is having bsod issues when playing certain games, example:

Rainbox six siege,
Battlefield One (BETA)
and a few others.

Wondering if anyone can give us a clue as to the cause.

Windows Format is done, but to no avail, memtest has been run, and disk checked.

Preferred Solution: BSOD when playing games intensive games 0x00000124

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.)

This usually only happens with Directx11 games, as Java, video and old school OpenGL based games don't seem to cause these issues. I also have no problem with 2D mode. Here is the initial information requested:

I have a Windows 7 OS installed on the system. It is 64 bit. Originally installed on the system was nothing, the system is custom built. It is not OEM, my friend installed a full retail version for me. The age of the system varies. The CPU and Motherboard are dated. However, the Memory, HDD (1TB), and graphics card are all new. The OS is fairly new as well, has only been installed for a few months. I have a Core 2 Quad Q6600 overclocked at 3.0GHz from the stock 2.4, stable. Ran a days work of Prime95. Also tried playing at stock, same issues. The video card is an Asus R9 270x. I usually keep it overclocked, but when it started having BSOD's at what I thought was a stable clock (Burn In was fine, no artifacts), I reduced it to stock, still no improvements. Everything is hooked up to a ASUS P5n-e SLI motherboard, again, quite dated. As for the PSU, I have a RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-630SS 630W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V.

I will of course have the reports attached to the post, but I also tried some research of my own before attempting to seek help. I used the program WhoCrashed in order to put my terrible BSOD kernal analysis skills to use and only found out that it was indeed my R9 card causing the crash, or was made to look like it was causing the crash, with other drivers fo...

They can cause conflicts and should be removed to test the system.

Hi TenForums!

First of all, this is my first post here, although I've followed many threads before without an account. I hope I come to be of value to this community.

The main reason I'm writing though is another: I purchased a Clevo P650RG laptop, and I going crazy with BSOD's when gaming. Oddly, they seem to happen only in some games. So far, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Skyrim Special Edition and The Crew. They don't last 30min without giving me BSOD's, always related to ntoskrnl.exe

Although, these game are somewhat secondary to me, as I'm more into sim-racing, and I'm able to play Assetto Corsa with my G27 wheel for more than an hour without any problem. So I'm assuming it happens only when I push harder for the hardware since Assetto is relatively light on it. Also, I've working hours straight on it without problems.

I've tried a lot of drivers already, mostly CPU and GPU, but I'm lost. I don't think the problem comes from faulty hardware, but if so I'd also like to know if there's a way to check that (already ran almost half of Memtestx86 without errors though).

I'm attaching a zip created as instructed in "BSOD Posting Instructions" in case someone has a clue of what's going on.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:BSOD's when playing graphic intensive games

Hello,
for starters, please test your RAM, and keep an eye on the temperatures while gaming with a software like MSI Afterburner for example.

Answer:BSOD When Playing Moderately Intensive Games

I would check the memory timings you might pushing that 1333 memory stick to hard. The cpu can handle memory modules up to 1866. By the way you would get much better performance running dual channel. What about your video card is it overheating, OCed what? Download speccy and publish a link and also If you could upload the dump file that would be great. It's in the windows/minidump.

Hello,

I am having issues with Windows 8.1 blue screens, while playing graphically intensive games like CS:GO or PAYDAY 2.I have recently un-installed Windows 7 because of some issues with DCOM server process launcher(probably malware)the thing wouldn't let me do repair installs or check the sound settings without restarting,and games also randomly crashing though I am not sure if it was driver related too.So now I am on 8.1 Enterprise and DCOM is working fine,everything isworking except for one thing:Games crash after 20-40 minutes of play time(CS:GO,PAYDAY 2...)sometimes I do manage to play an hour of and finish my session,games that are older(Garry's mod)Do NOT crash at all!.

Around the new year, I installed new RAM. Ever since, I have been getting BSOD at various times. I ran memtest86 and it came back clean. Unfortunately I left the old RAM a few thousand miles away so I can't test it with that. I also started playing a couple of more graphics intensive games (Star Trek Online and BFBC2) around that same time. At first, the BSOD would only occur during gameplay. Lately, the games have been running better but I get random blue screens while web browsing about once a week. The ones during games usually said atimpag.sys or dxgmms.sys. The ones during browsing usually say ntfs.sys or fltmgr.sys. ntoskrnl.exe seems to occur with both. I've attached a file with the dmps and some screen shots of cpuz. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

1. These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (`c0000005) (probably a driver).

Memtest ran for how many passes there?

We recommend to leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have Raid update its Driver.
2. Suggest you run Driver verifier.

I've had this issue for perhaps 2 weeks or so now, and it only happens while playing an intensive game. What I mean by intensive is basically any game made in the past 2-3 years (perhaps it's ALL games, I only play games made in the 2-3 years). Flash games or indie games with no 3d graphics do not cause the BSOD. I can leave my PC on for days with no BSOD as long as I don't play the games. With games though, it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours for the BSOD to occur but seemingly it is inevitable.

I'd tell you guys what errors I've had but they seem to vary quite a bit from the 0x00000124 to the 0x0000101.

Please check the attachment for the required info. including my PC descriptions.


Also, I'd like to preface all this by saying that I'm a complete neophyte, so if you could instruct me as if I was a child, I'd greatly appreciate that. Thanks.

Hey everybody,

I've been struggling with this issue for a while, I thought I resolved it a few months ago but it has come back and I'm out of ideas.

Ever since upgrading to Win10 at the start of last year I've started getting Clock Watchdog Timeout BSODs. After searching everywhere for a solution I gave up and went back to Win7 which continues to work without any problems. After a few months I discovered my Ethernet card was faulty and I replaced it, I was experiencing a couple of minor stability issues with my computer at the time but this resolved everything. So I thought I'd give Win10 another go on a new SSD. It worked perfectly with all my games working fine except Star Citizen which would get Clock Watchdog Timeouts after about 30min. This was fine by me as I could run it without BSODing on my Win7 HDD. Things have been running like this up until a couple of months ago when I installed BF1 (and it's summer here now so the heat might have something to do with it too). BF1 will now BSOD after about 30min as well as COH 2. The computer will also become more unstable on the boot after one of these BSODs with a BSOD while the computer is idling likely to occur within about an hour. I moved BF1 to the Win7 HDD and it runs mostly fine there, but if I change HDDs after a Win10 BSOD BF1 will cause a BSOD on Win7 but will run fine after that.

I've tried removing my old card reader and my old old sound card but it made no difference to the problem. I've also tried playing wit... Read more

First i though it must be the temp of the CPU or GPU, but the CPU is sitting at 45 deg and GPU is maxing out at 62 deg as i have an aggressive fan mapping to ensure that it was keeping cool.
Have stressed tested memory with memtest86+, CPU with Prime 95 and GPU with FurMark

Any advice would be appreciated.

Answer:BSOD while playing hardware intensive steam games

Hi timo,

Welcome to the 8forums.

The level 0 cache of the CPU is causing the problems.
What tests from Prime95 have you performed?

Please make sure your drivers are updated.
Please uninstall ASUS software.
Please make sure your BIOS is set at default settings.

There is only 1 .dmp file in the upload unless you have manually removed any others make sure your PC is not set to Overwrite any existing file see the instructions here the last image at the bottom you'll see a check box to overwrite any existing file, make sure it is not checked> How to Check Computer is set to collect dumps


From the single dump
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)
A fatal hardware error has occurred.
While it says hardware it is often a driver or program hanging a CPU that causes it.


dtsoftbus01.sys Fri Jan 13 08:45:46 2012 is listed in the dump stack it's a Daemon Tools driver that has been known to cause problems in Win7 x64.
Uninstall Daemon Tools and see if the BSOD's stop, upload any additional .dmp files you get( C:\Windows\minidump is the folder they will be in).

There are several bios updates available for your board it would be a good Idea to flash it to the latest> P67 Motherboard Series Manufacturing - ASRock Inc.

Built my PC a little under a year ago, and it was working fine with all games until GTA V was released. Ever since I downloaded the driver that was released at the same time as GTA, I've been experiencing crashes whenever I play games (even games that used to run without issue on high settings such as CS:GO can now cause crashes on the lowest setting) where my screen goes black and the last bit of audio that played repeats rapidly and loudly for a few seconds before stopping, at which point all I can do is manually restart my system.

I can't upload the Rar file with my dump info in it as it's too big for the site by 0.04 Mb, if anyone can advise me on files that are safe to remove from it to lower it's size I can upload it

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .





Quote:
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


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.

Hello-

I would love to get some assistance with my recent BSOD issues (I have recently starting seeing them while playing WoW). It can happen anywhere between 5 minutes to hours into playing. My computer is a custom build, no overclocking, and has been stable since I built it (2 months). I have made no recent hardware or software changes.

MB: AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 LGA1155
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
RAM: GSkills Ripjaw DDR3 1600
GPU: Nvidia GTX 650 Ti

I've attached my SF zip file. Please let me know what addition information I can provide.

Thank you!

Answer:BSOD 0x00000124 playing games

Update: I am still getting BSOD 0x124 after trying the following:

1. Ran Memtest86 for 12 hours, no errors.
2. Ran a torture test, all internal temps never rose above 55C.
3. Updated GPU, USB, SATA and audio drivers.

I've also attached the last two minidump files.

Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

Edit:
Ran msched, which found no issues.

I also tried updating my BIOS (from 2.80 to 2.90), and the system become more unstable - I could no longer load windows normally (could only load in safe mode). I have reverted back to 2.80 and can now boot normally again.

Not sure what to try next.

Hi, I'm having trouble as to what's causing these BSOD's on my computer and how I can fix it.

One of the main things that I've noticed happening that seems to be different is that almost every time that my computer crashes, my video card gets "Error Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems" and I have to uninstall and reinstall my video card drivers to fix it.

Other than that, I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to BSOD's and I have a hard time seeing what the problem is. Help would be much appreciated.

I've been having an issue the past couple months in which I will be playing a game for around 5-10 minutes and then the screen goes black. After this, one of the following occurs:The screen returns, with the game being played not responding (Happens with less intensive games like Minecraft), a message saying the AMD display driver has recovered is displayed in the bottom right corner
The screen remains black until I ctrl + alt + del and force close the application (Steam games such as CS:GO)
The screen flashes between the game, and a black screen, usually consisting of audio loops, and then eventually freezes into a BSOD with the following message: Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed

I've tried updating my video drivers, monitoring my temperatures, and stress testing, but I can't find a solution.

Answer:BSOD playing BF4 and heavy games 0x00000124

Hi,

I am not an expert on BSODs. But, 0x124 is the CPU telling Windows there was an uncorrectable hardware error presented to it by the motherboard or something attached. You can check for CPU temps with CPU Z. If you have any hardware that is overclocked, put it back to stock and check.

Whenever i play a game that is even slightly demanding i get a Bsod and the pc restarts (Its not a typical bsod as in my screen does not display a blue screen, it instead displays a grey screen with black vertical lines all over it). After seeing the error message that windows shows after the restart it seems to be an error 124 which apparently is a hardware error. Thinking it might be a faulty PSU i changed it since it was not a very good brand anyway. I got a CS650M at its place. The same problem continues. I have ran both memtest and prime 95 for many hours with no errors.Whenever i try to run furmark to test the gpu my pc instantly crashes. Thinking it is probably a bad gpu i gave it to the shop where i bought it from so that they can test it (i bought it last month so the warranty is still valid). According to them the Gpu is fine (the technician said that he had it running on benchmarks the entire night after i gave it to them and it didnt produce any errors).

This BSOD have occured over 10 times now and the majority of it happened while i was playing Dota 2. i usually can't finish a game without this BSOD which have left me in panic trying ti reconnect using another computer. a game usually take less than 1h.
the BSOD have also occured while watching movies but much less in frequency.

i have tried to do some debugging myself and this is what i did:

installed another instance of windows on mechanical hdd
switched to another gpu
running memtest and passed grade 9
checked hw temps, seemed fine to me

these tests were made separately and the BSOD still occured.

Answer:BSOD, more frequently when playing games, error 0x00000124

Hello ettApa and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Analyse

There's a few things to look at when we're dealing with the 0x124.
Any sort of overclocking should be stopped. Overclocking is obviously producing a lot of heat. Also make sure that you're not having a motherboard feature that overclocks your computer automatically.
Make sure that your computer is running cool. Install Speccy for instance, and make sure that the temperature idle is stable. Also track down weird or noisy sounds.
In your case, BIOS is updated. That should remain.
Windows 7 may have bugs in the OS if you ain't updating. Make sure that Windows Update is running on automatic updates, and not manual, or the 'never' feature.
If you haven't stress tested your CPU, I suggest doing so with Prime for instance.






Quote:
Prime is a stress testing tool for CPU's.
Details below.

Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95


Install the so called, Vanilla Windows. Windows without any additional software and drivers. It's usually a good idea to do, for excluding parts of the PC.
Consider replacing your computer if nothing works, and it's still under warranty of course.

hey WSF almost every time i play BF3 or MW3 i get BSOD. can some buddy help me?

I have added my dump files thanks

Answer:BSOD playing games like MW3 or BF3, error (0x0000001e, 0x00000124)

Hello,

Most of the crashdumps are WHEA errors reporting that there was failure of bank 5 in the L1 cache on your CPU. The banks are pretty consistent, which would have mean evidence leans heavily on it very well being your CPU suffering permanent damage. The other couple of crashdumps that aren't WHEA errors are inconclusive, as minidumps do not retain the information necessary to do a deeper dive.

First of all, before anything else, if you have your system overclocked in any way, shape or fashion, reset all of it to factory defaults. Even if your system has previously been stable with OCed settings, it can aggressively cause wear on your CPU and other hardware that will reduce their life, and your CPU may have just started suffering from it as a result.

Just to be extra sure, first I noticed that you have some motherboard utility software installed (like Asus PCprobe). Often times I've found WHEA errors that report bad CPU issues have actually been caused by bugs in motherboard utility software. Usually this software is gimmicky, or is better left done with alternative 3rd-party software options that are more reliable. If you still feel determined to keep your motherboard software installed, at least go to the appropriate website (Asus) and download any updates for all of your motherboard's related software, its drivers, and its BIOS (just to be on the safe side). If problems persist, you may need to remove the motherboard utilities just in case (keep all the drivers).

Hi! I've been getting BSODs while playing XCom - Enemy Within and Heroes of the Storm, and today I got one at desktop after a hard restart I got while playing one of those games. My PC is about half a year old and I've checked to see if the hardware and cables were properly connected. I don't think it's overheating either as I get it after 10 minutes in those games almost everytime, and it doesn't crash in f.ex. Dark Souls 2. I've verified game files for XCom in steam several times, but it doesn't find anything wrong, and it doesn't fix it. I very recently updated both audio and video drivers, but the errors keep coming the exact same way as before I updated.

Answer:BSOD when playing demanding games, error 0x00000124

Hi. . .

All 6 dumps had bugcheck 0x124 - Machine Check Exception - definitely unknown hardware failure.

0x124 BSODs are notoriously difficult to solve because the cause is simply "unknown hardware failure". The dumps nor system info submitted cannot even hint at the piece of hardware that has failed.

Unfortunately, the dumps are incapable of telling us which piece of hardware has failed. Dumps are only good for figuring out software problems.

All I can really do here is to give you some hardware diagnostic programs to run.RAM - memtest86+ - run 1 stick at a time; alternate the slots - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/har...memtest86.html
HDD - SeaTools for DOS, LONG test - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/har...agnostics.html
FurMark video card test - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/har...ress-test.html
Prime95 CPU - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/har...s-testing.html

The problem may also be with other hardware parts such as the motherboard or PSU for which there are no software tests.

I'm sorry that I could not really help here.

Take the system back and demand a new one. They can't deny the existence of the 0x124 BSODs. It is up to them to remedy this problem.

Regards. . .

Hey guys, I've recently been encountering BSOD while playing graphically intensive games such as World of Tanks in 4k resolution. I thought it might be a temperature issue, so I manually turned up my GPU fan speed to 90% while playing, and my core temp. remained ~50?C. That didnt seem to fix the issue.

My last crash gave me the ol' Stop: 0x00000124

Here is my zip file containing the results of a DM Log Collector.

Edit: My system specs are:
CPU: i7-4790K @ 4.00GHz
MB: ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z97
GPU: EVGA NVIDIA GForce GTX 780Ti
RAM: 16Gb G.Skill Trident X @ 2400Mhz
OS: Win7
PSU: EVGA 1000P2

Answer:BSOD playing games in 4k resolution such as World of Tanks 0x00000124

It seems to be overclocked.

Code:
CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz"
MaxSpeed: 4000
CurrentSpeed: 4080
And overclocking is one of the most frequent reasons of a stop 0x124 (though not the only reason).

As you are experiencing BSODs, As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings. Then see if it still causing the same BSOD or not. If the BSOD continues to occur, let us know. We will take further attempts to troubleshoot the issue.

Answer:BSOD playing Steam games, Bug 0x00000124, Driver: hal.dll+12a3b

Hello, and welcome to SevenForums!

First of all, have you overclocked your graphics card at all?

The 0x00000124 error code appears during a hardware complaint, such as overheating. If you have overclocked your GPU, RESET IT IMMEDIATELY. This could be causing numerous critical errors in your GPU, causing the whole system to crash. Also, overclocking can severely damage your GPU. I would only recommend it if you know what you are doing and are not just following a tutorial.

But, this could be other things too. I see that your GPU driver is WAY out-of-date. Download the latest drivers via the AMD website.

Best of luck,

PeregrineX

BSOD playing games such as league of legends. Error 0x00000124

Bluescreen from: Error 0x00000124 from driver hal.dll
Just recently built a new PC, Hooked everything up; This is my 3rd PC build.

Essentially the computer kept blue screening during games and also bluescreens when watching Twitch.tv or videos. - the steps I've taken to correct the issues are as follows:
1) Replaced Motherboard
2) Replaced CPU
3) Did memtest on both memory sticks, No Errors. Also tried 1 memory stick in different slots.
4) Erased / Reformatted SSD. Also reinstalled OS on HDD to test.
5) I thought the airflow is bad in the case so I installed more fans to pull hot air out. (CM Storm Stryker)
6) I thought the heatsink on the CPU is shitty so I replaced it with the corsair h80i liquid heatsink
7) Reinstalled the OS / Reinstalled all Windows Updates / Reinstalled Disc that came with motherboard
The motherboard is Asus Maximus Formula VI.

Is the power supply bad? I don't know how to troubleshoot a PSU.
I have two GTX 780 Ti and thought it could be that the games just do not accept SLI or that the hot air in the case would be causing the temps to crash the system. I also thought that maybe a 1000W PSU cant push two 780s; but EVGA Assured me that wattage would be fine. I now only use one card in the computer to test.

The temps during gaming of the CPU is at peak 107 Degrees "Fahrenheit"
The temps on the single GFX Card is 42 Degrees "Celcius"

Recently I have been getting crashes while playing games. The screen will go black and the sound will lag and then it will crash. This does not persist outside of gaming. Crashes usually happen about 5-10 minutes within the session. I've updated my video driver and directx and ran a few passes with the windows RAM test with no errors. I've also reset my computer to factory conditions and instead of a "ntoskrnl.exe" driver crash the dump files now says its "hal.dll" issue. I downloaded software from western digital to test my hard drive and nothing came up. I'm at a loss here. Any suggestions?

Hi. Thank you for your time and expertise
For a while now I've had mostly BSOD 0x00000124 appearing on my screen when watching online videos(except YouTube) or whenever I played PC games on maximum video settings.
I decided to re-install Windows, assuming that software is the problem. Though after that not only did the BSOD stay, but also my computer started freezing randomly(on start-up, while installing updates, browsing the internet).
Also I installed Zorin OS 6. After a few minutes of browsing the internet(using Chrome) it also froze.
I tried running MemTest86+(using a CD) but after about 10 min. the computer screen shuts down on its own.
What should I do?

While playing multiple games such as 7 days to die, counter strike, league of legends, Dota 2, Starcraft 2, and many others my computer will often randomly get a BSOD, sometimes during an intense part of the game or when I am simply walking somewhere. I've gotten error code 0x00000101 and I got 0x00000124 after using Verifier.

This has been happening for about a year, my brother told me that it was probably my power supply but after I looked into the error codes more I saw that these error codes are mostly for driver errors. This is where I was stumped. I know a little about computers but I had no idea how to find a corrupt driver or even how to find out if that was the problem. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Hello and welcome Connor I take it is Connor I cannot see much in the dump files mate but you do mention your brother has queried the PSU now you can check that with this
Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic.
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
FOR OTHER COMPONENTS
Open each + down into the component itself and then click on it - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that device. See pic for example it is of my own Ivy Bridge desktop and you need to scroll to that section which gives the volts send a pic if you can please - this is just for starters.

When playing Crysis 2 on DX11 mode (everything maxed out) I ALWAYS get a BSOD within 10 minutes.

On DX9 mode, I can go for hours.

Other DX11 games worked however, so I assumed this was a Crysis 2 problem.

However, I now have Battlefield 3, and have probably played for about 40 hours or so.

In this time, I have gotten 2 BSODS.

This game uses DirectX 11 too (However, I have other DX11 games which function fine).

I downloaded Bluescreenview, and apparently it is a problem with ntoskrnl.exe, every time.

Attached to this thread are my minidumps.

Can anyone tell me what the solution is? I have tried chkdsk /f.
 

Answer:BSOD From "ntoskrnl.exe" While Playing Graphically Intensive 3D Games

Personally, I would first make sure that my video card driver was up-to-date, as it would be the easiest thing to rule out; Nvidia makes it pretty easy:

Okay, so, I reformatted recently, and have started having BSODs playing games like Kerbal Space Program, Far Cry 3, Team Fortress 2, stuff like that, it doesn't seem to happen on more processor intensive games like Dwarf Fortress. it's probably fair to note that I've uninstalled and reinstalled my GPU driver, and the problem seems to stop for extended periods of time, only to start again for no apparent reason. dump files attached.

Answer:Computer restarts when playing graphic intensive games

Hi

Is the CPU overclocked at all, and if so set to normal, also check motherbord BIOS for any automatic overclocking (I know my ASUS does auto overclock).

Can you also reduce any overclock or auto setting on the GPU, just want to see if there is a strain somewhere, with running all cores of the CPU.

I also just wonder if your PSU is on the borderline as the spec for the EVGA GPU is a min 500w PSU, yours at 650 plus other hardware may take it close to max on a high power PC. Its just something I'd look into with a power requirement site or support like below, I used the ASUS calculator and used what you posted above not knowing how many modules of RAM you have to make 16GB but assumed 2 and added 2 USB devices for KB and Mouse only and recommended min was 650w

Some more info HERE

Hopefully some others will jump in on PSU requirements to see if my thoughts are sound.

I would also re-install motherboard drivers and check for BIOS updates to see if any of them address a issue like you are getting in instability, but these types of issues are hard to diagnose

Answer:Computer restarts when playing graphic intensive games

Without any dumps or logs, it's hard to tell but my first guess would be that you're running out of power. Your PS says it supplies 54A on the 12v rail. (I would venture to guess it's less.) PSs don't like to run at peek output for very long. Your video requires 30A, CPU about 15A, Motherboard about 7A. That's 52A right there. Then add all your fans, drives and additional hardware. But, as I said, this is a first guess.

it has a 3.0ghz dual core processor
8gb ddr21033hmz ram
1 raptor, 2 x 1tb drive
gtx 295 zotac edition
700w psu

I recently did a fresh install and decided to over clock the graphics card a bit. did lots of research on the web found the highest for my card with extra cooling etc..
over clocked it fine using msi afterburner and everything still ran fine.
(i put it up to 700 core clock, 1500 shader and 1100mV from 1021 mV)

However a couple of hours later when i did a stress test there is a reasonably loud buzz. Not to sure where from but think it might be the PSU
this only occurs when under a lot of strain and afterburner shows the gpu use as above 60%
its not stupidly loud, but is noticeable.
I have since underclocked the card and the sound is still there when under gpu intensive applications.

Is this something to worry about? I dont really fancy a new psu as they are hard to find ones designed for the BTX form factor.
Or is it just a fan?

BTW latest drivers and everything

Hi!
I choose to start this thread because i couldn't find the same behaviour anywhere else.
So when i start playing a game (e.g CS:GO) the games runs smoothly and all is good for about 15 minutes give or take. After that period of time my internet connection suddenly drops. If i only disable and enable my connection it will go back online but only for another 15 minutes or so if i start playing a game again. If i restart the pc i can play the game as much as i want without any problems.
In conclusion when i first start the pc after a long time of power off i get this problem but after the first restart it s all gone. I can't wrap my head around the source of this problem. Hope someone can help.

The error code for the BSOD on Windows 10 changes. It is almost never the same each time it comes up. Games like Hitman: Absolution, LoL, and CSGO often make my computer crash in the middle of the game and lead to a BSOD. I've gotten things from codes involving memory, to codes like the ones I will link that I have no clue what they mean. Attachment 36988

I noticed that I started getting many BSODs after I upgraded my CPU and changed my CPU fan to an aftermarket one. As I was installing the cooler, I dropped a screw on the motherboard, and am not sure if it damaged it or not. Additionally, I ran programs like Prime95 monitored with HWMonitor and my max temperature reached was about 70 degrees celcius. As far as I know, 70 is high but still manageable for a computer, and this is happening in my dorm where it is very warm at the current moment.

Can anyone help me analyze the files and tell me exactly what's going on?

Hello. This is my first post in the forums, so I'm sorry if I made something wrong.

First of all, I know there's already a lot of posts in forums about this error, and almost all of them got solved by replacing parts from the computer, and if I have to do that, then I might as well be sure that I really have to do it, so I came here to ask for help.

So, this all started about 3 months ago when I decided to install Assassins Creed, went fine for about 30 minutes and then, for the first time, it showed me this blue screen (0x00000124), and every time I tried to play the game, the same blue screen appeared, so I gave up and uninstalled it. I was playing League of Legends at the time too, and the error never appeared. And now I get to the reason that took me to make this post. About 1 week ago, this error, the one that appeared when I played Assassins Creed, started to appear when I played League of Legends, and Aion, which is really strange because it never appeared before. And now every time I try to play anything, this error appears, and even when I'm watching stream, the error appears. I don't know what to do. I already tried almost everything (didn't do 9) that was on this post (Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try) and nothing worked.

I'm leaving a zip file with everything that SF_Diagnostic_Tool gave me.

Hope someone can help. :)

Evening gents,

I'm hoping you can help me with these BSODs in games.

When running video-intensive games, my PC throws a BSOD:
sometimes after playing a video-intensive game for several hours
sometimes shortly after starting the game, within 2-3 minutes, this is usually after playing for a while, leaving the game and then rejoining the game
Not all games are affected, I can play low-requirement games like TF2 or Sunless Sea for many hours before a BSOD and may not even get one.

By reducing video settings, I am sometimes able to play BF1 and Witcher 3 on the lowest settings for several hours before a BSOD, but it's inevitable.

Also note that running a game immediately after starting the PC in the morning does not produce a BSOD immediately, possibly because the PC is cool at that time, hasn't been used in many hours.

However, running Youtube, then gaming, has a high chance of causing a BSOD.

No BSOD is ever thrown during non-game PC usage, I can watch youtube vids and use the PC normally, but as soon as I kick on the video card and the fan starts buzzing loudly, a BSOD is on its way.

Running both Youtube and a game will cause a BSOD 100% of the time, although I've done that for years without any problems.

Running Furmark causes a BSOD within a couple of minutes, GPU temp climbing to around 65 celsius and keeps climbing a bit longer and that's when the BSOD hits. Same case as jumping into a BF1 quickmatch, although I could stay in the BF1 menus forever without a BSOD.

Anyway, forgot to mention what happens when nearing the BSOD,
ingame sounds will become distorted and sound like high-pitched screeches
artifacts appear and textures may become black or "filler" textures like modelers use, bright pink, red and other colours

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!
My brother recently upgraded his rig and passed down his GTX 690 to because he no longer has a use for it, and I can't seem to play any intensive games on this rig at all, on any graphical settings.
I can play Path of Exile and League of Legends with no trouble at all, however I think these are only DX9 games, whereas the games I've been trying to play BF4/Crysis3 are DX11.
I've repeatedly re-installed the drivers using driver sweeper and also used memtest to test my ram, passes on all tests.
I've placed the card back into my brothers rig to ensure the card wasn't damaged at all and it runs like a charm.
The PSU for the rig it is atm is a 650W PSU, I've Checked on wattage calculators and according to them my rig would only need 520-600W at the most.

I've attached the minidumps for the BSODs I receive when trying to play anything at all.
Any help at all is appreciated

Hi, I have an Asus P4P800 mobo with a pentium 4 processor running at 3ghz. I'm using 2GB of RAM with a Gigabyte 256mb GeForce 6800 GT video card.

I have run benchmark tests using PerformanceTest on graphics processing and had 700+ FPS on 2D graphics, 90+FPS on 3D Medium graphics, but was under 10FPS on 3D complex graphics. These tests were run at 800x600. The card itself I know is not faulty because I've tested it in another computer and it performed beautifully.

On any graphic intensive game, basically any HL2 game or mod, battlefield 2, C&C Generals, elder scrolls: oblivion, the games run at a very low FPS. However the graphic abilities of the card can be enabled, (HDR, pixel shading, etc) but even without these graphics enabled the game will still run very sluggish. This problem even occurs sometimes on very non-graphic intensive games, such as flash games.

I'm wondering if anyone knows what the issue is, i've checked all the settings in the bios at least 5 times and they're all correct and all other benchmark testing was great, the only bad result was the complex 3d graphics test. Normal CPU functions run very well, i can alt-tab in and out of programs very quickly and can ran many programs at once, but since this computer is designed for semi-gaming, this fault is very problematic.

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:

How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- 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.

Afternoon Sevenforums, fairly recently (3 months ago), I began crashing and experiencing several errors in the game Everquest 2. The crashes were generally from nvd3dum.dll. This past week I picked up Guild Wars 2 and experience the crashes every 5-10 minutes making the game unplayable. The errors are generally Memory cannot be read at 29eqw234 etc... and memory cannot be written.

The dll included in the crash reports was nvd3dum.dll pointing me towards the graphics drivers which I reinstalled several times including wiping everything with driver sweeper and so on. No fix, began to switch RAM and busted out $110 for 2 sticks of 2GB PNY which still.. did not fix the errors. I've even gone to the extent of wiping the HDD clean, reinstalling Windows, then reinstalling the 20 GB game Guild Wars 2. I will include everything I know so far as to include, If you need anything more please let me know and give me an idea on how to access it. Thank you!

Things attempted ;
chkdsk
swapping ram
fresh format+install
reinstalling drivers (used driversweeper and such)
running games in admin mode
underclocking GPU

This really has me stumped!!

EDIT ; Added Windows 7 Diagnostics File.. S7Diag.zip

Welcome aboard.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

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.

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

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .

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.

My kids tend to play games (Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego Clone Wars, etc) whilst I'm at work and have experienced occasional but repeated BSODs. They always have cooling turned up when playing.

The computer is overclocked but has been since new (with lots of testing via Prime95, FurMark, etc), without any problems when I'm using it. I'm down to figuring there's something my sons are doing or something about the games they're playing that are causing issues.

Any assistance gratefully appreciated.

Answer:BSOD in various games, error 0x00000124

I know you said you've already done some stress testing but I'd like you to do some more with some recommendations on the amount of time you're testing.
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

Post back the results.

Hello all,
Recently I've been getting a lot of BSODs with the same code, Stop 0x00000124. I've read the thread Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and no luck with the suggestions. These errors mostly occur during games and every now and then I get no BSOD, but the computer just restarts.

I recently added some new memory and this started about 30-45 days after the installation I would guess. However, I ran memtest for 20 hours with 0 errors yesterday so I'm going to temporarily rule out bad memory.

No overheating on the CPU. ~29-30C no load, ~42C during prime95 torture after about 10 mins. Doesn't ever get much higher.

I've attached today's dump files as well as ones from 10/23from the tool provided in the BSOD thread. I switched from Kernal to Small File dump and wasn't sure if this would cause an issue. Pardon my ignorance on that one. Here's a link to CPU-Z validation for that particular info. CPU-Z ko300zx

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

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 .

Hi I am having issues with certain games. These games include Borderlands 2, Saints row: the third and Warhammer 40k space marine.

I always get the same error on the BSOD which is the 0x00000124 which leads back to ntoskrnl.exe

These bluescreens always come when I boot any of the games, usually about 2-3 seconds after going full screen. I have them all through Steam and i have checked the file integrity on the games, also reinstalled steam to have it check through the DirectX files.

I have also tried to remove my Nvidia drivers and reinstalling them.

I have no issues running other high end games like Crysis 2 maximum ED or Guild Wars 2

Hey all,

I have been having a reoccurring BSOD 124 since I built this computer last fall, but only during graphically intense games(i.e. The Witcher 3, Black Desert Online), but I will sometimes go weeks at a time without having this issue. My specs are as follows:

Intel i7-5820k CPU
MSI X99A SLI PLUS Mobo
EVGA GTX 960 2gb (Refurbished GPU)
32g (4x8) G. Skill Value series RAM
Samsung 850 EVO 250g SSD
Samsung 850 EVO 500g SSD
WD Blue 1TB HDD
Corsair RM 750 PSU (swapped this in place of a Seasonic 650 Gold Semi-modular that went bad. May have damaged the Mobo?)

This machine was built as a Pro Tools audio workstation capable of gaming on the side. I have been able to run massive Pro Tools sessions with zero issues, utilizing all 6 cores of the CPU and much of the 32g of RAM. I have run stress tests using MemTest86, Prime95, and FurMark repeatedly, as well as several other stress test applications, with zero errors. The only issues I have are these sporadic full on freezes that crash my computer during more demanding games and it is always the same error. I've uploaded a copy of the latest BSOD. From all the tests, re-seating, cleaning, and research I've done, I believe I must have either a faulty MOBO or GPU. If there is any insight the pros on this site have to offer before I go dropping a few hundred dollars to test these components I'm all ears. Thanks in advance!

Hi I have been having BSODs on my PC. Primarily errors 124 and 3b

I have gone through this forums BSOD 124 help/support and cannot narrow it down.

I did download the BlueScreen Viewer program to help identify what was creating the issue, which always seems like hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe originates the crash or nvlddmkm.sys when its a 3b.

I have ran diagnostics on my PC to check for errors and most have come back fine. Such as memtest86 (8hrs) and furmark. I have also tried Prime95, and the one thing I noticed is that core #5 does not work on the test, I do not know it is faulty or not, but wanted to post before purchasing another processor.

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

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 720 15" : hot when playing games on charger, cool when playing games on battery???

The CPU runs at full speed when it is plugged in and runs more slowly on battery to save power.  Faster = more heat.

It doesn't happen often but sometimes it freezes for a second while loading a certain game which works fine on another day and gives BSOD. Sometimes it happens after I've loaded the game and am in the moment of playing. My hardware is more than enough for the games I run and I even run them on low-mid even though I can manage high settings. The games I usually run are CS:GO, League of Legends and Modern Warfare 3 [rarely play; received 1 BSOD while loading it]

I've uploaded my dump files.

Answer:BSOD during CPU intensive tasks. Temps OK. 0x00000124

Hi Soro.

Usually stop 0x124 BSODs are said to be hardware issue (the crash dump also say so) but actually it can be anything and everything associated with the computing environment.

It would be nice if you report the temps formally. 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 .

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.

Are you overclocking?
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes. It will take a time for your 16 GBs.

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

Hello all,
I went through my first attempt at building my own computer about 2 months ago and the process went fine. But about a week after I began using it, I started getting BSOD that seemed happen whenever I would run a CPU intensive program (Handbrake, VMWare Player, etc). It won't always crash when running one of these, but maybe once every couple of days when running a program such as this. I've tried the following after researching online:
Ran memtest86 overnight, no errors found in RAM
Put in a beefier CPU cooler (ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler) to lower the CPU temps
Reinstalled to a fresh version of Windows 7
Ran 'verifier.exe' according to the steps shown in many posts here - the result of this is that about 30-60 seconds after I login to Windows, a BSOD occurs - this is repeatable every time until I cancel the verifier program

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.

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

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.

Hello,

Within the last few months, my laptop developed a problem that has been driving me up a wall. If I play a newer game such as Modern Warfare 2 or Starcraft 2, my processor will rise to 100% after about 20 minutes of continuous play, driving my framerate down to the point where nothing can function. If I return to a pause menu or minimize the game, the spike will go back to normal after about 2 or 3 minutes. Curiously, the problem does not occur with older games like Halo: Combat Evolved or KOTOR.

I have opened my laptop and cleaned out the dust from my heatsink and fan, run multiple virus (windows defender) and malware (malwarebytes) scans to no avail. If anyone has any advice, I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks,
Brad

In the past week, anything that tends to take a toll on the graphics has caused my PC to cut out completely, and restart.
In the past, I had this same issue. I put this down to having a Power supply issue, i replaced my power supply with the same model except 100w extra and it seemed to resolve the problem.
6 months later, It's happening again. Yesterday I played X Com 2, on full graphics and it killed the PC. I lowered it to medium and it was fine for several hours last night and today. However coming back to the game, i've tried on the lowest settings for everything and it just keeps cutting out.
I've not changed anything since it was working earlier. It just cuts out.
Could this be the power supply? The graphics card?
How would I start to diagnose the issue here? Can anyone help?

I've been having this issue for nearly a year now (probably around 9 months). It started after my little sister made me get a virus by her trying to download something onto my laptop. I've since taken it to a reputable computer shop as well as followed instructions from other computer wizs and I think it's no longer there. Issue is, my computer has kind of developed another problem after that. It freezes on it's own sometimes, when I pick it up or even when it's on a desk and immobile. It would also freeze when I play a game sometimes, loud buzzing sound as the game continues in loops I believe. I had BSOD problems earlier this year that was solved (Apparently. I haven't gotten any in about 4-5 months) when I had Windows 7 but this issue still persists.

When it would freeze and I manually turn off my computer and turn it back on, the laptop would sometimes say no wifi could be detected. At all. Not mine, not my neighbors, nothing. I've never really taken it out of the house so I don't know if it'd act the same elsewhere. I would then shut it down and take out the battery for 30 seconds before putting it back in. Sometimes the wifi would work then or I'd go connect it to my Internet Modem and the wifi would start working over there too.

So I'm not sure what's causing this problem. It's not overheating as I had it cleaned less than 4 months ago by a professional. I've had this laptop for two years and I really wanted it to last me at least 4 because I'll be going into an ani... Read more
