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

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

The title is pretty self-explanatory; I keep getting BSOD on steam games, particularly DotA and Civ V. I've been supremely bored without my vidjya, so any help would be much appreciated! I've attached the requisite BSOD paperwork, and am pasting some more stuff, and my system specs should be in my profile.

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

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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 I see that your GPU driver is WAY out-of-date.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

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.

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!

A: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.

This is almost certainly a hardware problem, which can only be isolated through stress testing. Start with the major components:

RAM : run a minimum of 8 passes, no less

Video :

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.

Basically a 0x00000124 is a hardware issue; but it may be caused by anything and everything associated with the computer.

The crash dumps provide very less information in the 0x00000124 dumps. And there is only one crash dump which is unfortunately having symbol error and so I failed to read it properly.

Anyway, a single BSOD may always be treated as a glitch. If the issue continues, let us see the further dumps ... if they provide any little more info there.

So i bought a Corsair H60 Hydro cooler and i could then play BF4 for about 2-3 days without any bluescreens then last night it started again and since then i had 2 last night 1 this morning.

A: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.

I get random crashes usually while playing more graphics intensive games but sometime out of the blue. I've had multiple crashing problems ever since I've had this compute but It hasn't inconvienced me much. I upgraded to windows 10 and it seems to pretty much only crash while doing graphic intensive things such as playing GTA V. However, I usually don't get a BSOD. I'll get a solid color (typically red) or just a reboot screen.

It sends the error code:
0x00000124

I've attached the crash files.

nearly every day i get a BS always caused by the same problem.
A month ago my old Mainboard (Gigabyte Gaming 5) broke and my pc didn't start anymore.
So i bought the MSI X99S Gaming 7 and built it in, everything was fine for the first time.
But after a while i got those BlueScreens, so i made a complete clean install of Windows and Drivers (MoBo, nVidia...).
Again everything was fine, but after 1 Week i got those BlueScreens again, and now i just dont know why i get these.
I hope someone can help me and sry for my english^^' (someone speaking German would be nice too! )

Hello I have been having a demanding playing games, 0x00000124 BSOD error when very annoying error ever since ive built my new pc a month ago Whenever i play a game that is even slightly demanding i get a Bsod and the pc BSOD when playing demanding games, error 0x00000124 restarts Its not a typical bsod as in my screen does not display a blue screen it instead displays a BSOD when playing demanding games, error 0x00000124 grey screen with black vertical lines all BSOD when playing demanding games, error 0x00000124 over it After seeing the error message that windows shows after the restart it seems to be an error 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 CS M at its place The same problem continues I have ran both memtest and prime 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 Also my temps seem to be fine Cpu goes at max and Gpu at max I am getting desperate here any help would be appreciated Pc specs Cpu amd Fx Gpu Sapphire R gb Ram Kingston ddr gb hyperx black Psu Corsair CS M W Ssd OCZ vertex Hdd WD tb Green OS Win x Proffesional

A: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. . .

Greetings,
recenlty i upgraded my pc,i changed everything but the graphic cart.So far so good.I did format and installed win 7 x32 bit first.All worked fine till i started playing games.Then while in games i would get bsod,tried 2-3 games all with the same result.So i started stress testing my hardware.furmark,occt,prime95,hds, all was good.I did format again and installed win 7 x64 now,the problem stayed.Third format i installed win 8,1 not on the ssd on the hdd just to test the problem remains.But now a window pops up that says "display driver stopped responding and has recovered" mostly,it even appeared while i was just browsing.Today after 3 days using win 8,1 i got my first bsod.

P.S i have tried numerous drivers,and various other fixes i saw on the internet no luck.

So here is my SF Diagnostic Tool file

This bugcheck is particularly caused by the ATI Drivers.

Please run the Display Driver Uninstaller using this **LINK** and then completely uninstall your ATI Drivers. Once it is done, please reboot the system.
After the restart, install the Drivers which came when you purchased the GPU which comes generally in a Driver CD. See if this resolves the problem or not.

Also, your BIOS is dated 2010, I would suggest you to check the manufacturer for any updates. Please do not update the BIOS as of now, let me know if there is any update or not.

Also, have you tried running the system after removing the Graphics Card physically from the system?

Let me know how it goes ^_^

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.

DM Log Collector ZIP attached.

Please help.

A: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.


Code:
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)
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.

I have added my dump files thanks

A: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).

In addition to this, on rare occasion I've found video driver bugs to cause this (which is unusual from a technical standpoint, but happens). I did notice your ATI drivers are from Dec 2011, so you may wanna try and update those.

Lastly, you may check your CPU with Prime95. Set it to Torture Test with Large FFTs and let it run for about 9+ hours. If your system BSODs during it, send the resulting crashdump. Otherwise, if you see any errors you can start betting that it's the CPU that's being problematic (though no errors at all does not 100% ensure your CPU is ok). If you wish to see if voltage (PSU) or temp is being an issue, you can use HWinfo with Sensors only option checked to see. Log two 30-minute sessions: one during idle and one during high load. Send the resulting logs. If your system crashes during one of them, don't worry, it'll log up to the latest point before the crash. Send the resulting logs for analysis.

Given the information so far, I'm pretty heavily set on it being CPU failure, but these are all just measures to make sure anything else isn't the cause.

Can you please follow Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions so we can get all the files needed.

As you said BugCheck 124, since all i received the minidump this is the only thing i could do.






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.

   Warning
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 - Windows 7 Help Forums 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 firmwareBIOS VersionChipset DriversHard disk controller drivers/SATA driversIf 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 DOSMonitor 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 - Windows 7 Help Forums 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 IntelBurnTestRun 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... Read more

Hi guys,

I've recently been getting random BSOD when playing games such as The Witcher 3 and Project Cars.

It doesn't seem to be a cpu temp or load issues as max temps are below 60 and load never really gets higher than 50%.

Even after observing the above I think I've traced it to be a CPU problem, but if someone were able to take a look at the attached dump file that would be great.

*edit* I have followed the rules and used the dm log collector now.

Thanks,
Dan

If the title is misleading, I apologize in advance, but that's the only time I've experienced this problem thus far. I have a fear that it's endangering my computer, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:BSOD while playing Steam games?

Welcome
The best place to start, would be to make sure it is not a driver that is to cause. Im leaning toward hardware, but the reports were not clear at best.

Driver Verifier
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Dumps are attached. the BSoD's normally occur while I'm playing certain games on steam, namely Flatout: Ultimate Carnage, Red Orchestra 2, Killing Floor
I have had the computer since Christmas and I had to reinstall windows twice because of Dell technical support being notorious for telling me to wipe my drive and reinstall windows and then they had a tech remote access my computer and download the necessary drivers.

A:BSoD while playing certain games on Steam

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.

Steam keeps crashing my PC. I have a suspicion it has something to do with the way Steam is transmitting data in online games. I can play anything from DOTA2 to StarMade and encounter the same issue. Thanks in advance for any help!

Caused by Avast!. Please remove avast and replace with MSE.

Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other internet security software. Malwarebytes is a great combo to MSE. They are free and lightweight.

Also uninstall your existing Antivirus software before you install MSE.

Good and Free system security combination.

Hello
Recently I have been receiving a periodic BSOD on my computer. During game play, the window will become clear and minimise. The game will not recover and the event log shows the following error : "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." The computer continues to function until a game starts. For some games it BSODs on launch, others it happens once it loads a level. I have tried a clean install and driver updates. This does not happen every time, and in some games (such as CS:GO) disabling multi core rendering seems to avoid this issue. Hopefully someone can give me a hand with this.
Thanks in advance.

As you can see, it needs updating. I am going to give you some suggestions of how to get a clean install of the driver and not use a lot of the stuff they include with them which can conflict with other drivers.

I am going to give you some links that will help you get a good clean install and not have any drivers you don't need that will conflict with other drivers. Download a WHQL driver from Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7 . Once you have them downloaded, uninstall you current driver from control panel. next clean up any left over drivers from following this tutorial Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling and select only ATI Display Drivers. After you have done that and rebooted, install the new driver, only select custom install and install only what you have to. Very few people need most of what they include. You do not need the audio/HDMI drivers as you already have that in your Motherboard drivers. Unless there is some reason you need them, the only thing you really need is the Display Driver.

As far as the ZoneAlarm, if it were me I would uninstall it using these instructions Free Antivirus + Firewall Uninstall help. and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials (Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows)

Please do those things and see if they are of any help.

I would also monitor my CPU and GPU temps at all times, especially during gaming.

I also noticed an excessive number of Windows Errors with Bulls and Cows.exe. I would check and see if there are any solutions to it and maybe reinstall the program. Otherwise it really needs to go if it can't be fixed.

Hi,

I've been having this problem for a while now but have pretty much just been ignoring it, but its got to the stage where I can't play games without it happening. I've tried googling the errors I get but am not sure if what is coming up is specific to my problem.

I'm running windows 7 x64, I have a GTX 660SC and an i5 3570k processor. I am not overclocked. I have attached the file generated with DM Log collector, if anyone could give me any help it would be much appreciated. I believe the latest blue screen is the most frequently occurring one, although there does seem to be a few that pop up.

You have a lot of errors with stop code 124. This stop code relates to hardware errors. Analyzing one of the dump file shows that there is problem with CPU cache:

- try to detect defective capacitors on motheboard
- try to verify work of power suply

Ive been experiencing a BSOD whenever I play PC games e.g. Rust, CSGO.

I have not been able to find a fix for this I have tried reinstalling drivers for everything and I have also run memtest which found no errors and that is all I could really think that the problem is. This issue mostly occurs after roughly 6-10 minutes of play time, otherwise the PC runs normally. Ive checked to make sure this isn't a cooling issue which it isn't. Ive uploaded a screen cap of speccy to better help with the specs.
also I think this is and unrelated issue but certain windows updates will not install i have attached a image of this too.

A:BSOD when playing MOST steam games

Your dumps are a mixture of mainly hardware fault 124 errors and a graphics driver error which could be a knock on from the 124.

0x124's are typically related to a hardware issue and can only be isolated by stress testing the major components.


If overclocking, reset all overclocks back to their default settings and then follow these:


RAM - run for a minimum of 8 consecutive passes


RAM - Test with Memtest86+


CPU - run the HIGH test


CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest


Video - run the FURMARK test for 20mins


Graphics Card Problems - Diagnose


Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark


Storage - run the SHORT test using the DOS version

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

A: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.

Ok, so this is very likely to be a hardware issue. I once had this problem my self, my fix was to clean out the dust. Even though there was none veiwable i took a vacuum and cleaned it. It worked. Now check for dust, dirt etcc. Next if you have overclocked STOP and revert. Follow the posted link above it has all of the needed information. And the most likely solution to your issue. If you are still having problems, i suggest lowering v-core. This do not touch for now though.

And i also suggest running these to help diagnose hardware for any issues.

Stresstests:
Ram : RAM - Test with Memtest86+
General hardware: Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95 ( (Three pre-set configurations are available: Small FFTs and In-place FFTs, and Blend. Small and In-place modes primarily test the FPU and the caches of the CPU, whereas the Blend mode tests everything, including the memory.)
Graphics: Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark (Do the above Graphics test only with the latest drivers, and then Run it until the temperatures stop increasing; should be less then 10 minutes. If you don't see any crazy glitches or distortion on the screen, The test most likely passed. Take note if the Temperature gets too high, or you see Visual artifact - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia to stop the test.)

Hello,

2 days ago, I had a couple BSOD errors which occurred when playing "Counter-Strike: GO". I figured that they were related to my graphics drivers, and since then have updated them. The BSOD stopped occuring after that.

Today however, a new BSOD error occured, talking about a potential bios issue, however there was no driver listed and no dump was collected after the issue. Because of this I decided to use verifier.exe to figure out which driver caused the issue.

I followed the steps outlined here and my system did indeed bsod upon startup, before even reaching the user screen.

This dump file should be the most recent one, and the one I am having trouble with. The required files are attached.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi There,

This last one you are concerned with is caused by Comodo,


Code:
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for cmdguard.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for cmdguard.sys
Probably caused by : cmdguard.sys ( cmdguard+8339 )

You might want to uninstall it for the time being if you are troubleshooting another issue.

When you say a potential BIOS issue, what was it that pointed you to that?

Hello everybody I have built a custom computer couple months ago and began to notice blue screens off and on sometimes it would fix itself and I would not see one for days but now it has become a bit consistent when playing most D applications I performed my own tests to see if any hardware issues might exist I did a memtest with no problems in the memory swapped videos cards installed every single driver from sound card to video card solid state and beyond However I still get this problem I also went into my bios setting to ensure that nothing is overclocking my CPU I had both video cards NON SLI because it would always bsod in sli so I was titles Steam Playing games other BSOD and using one of the cards dedicated for gaming BSOD Playing Steam games and other titles for a little while The problem would only occur when I loaded into a game I would get a black screen and enough time to predict it was going to bsod the game would hang and allow me to alt tab to desktop seconds before everything froze completely BSOD Playing Steam games and other titles and crashed I decided to take one of the video cards out and see if it duplicated the symptom to my surprise I was able to run the game for a little while longer approx - minutes and then it would blue screen again I tried this with the single card three times and continued to have the same issue Otherwise the computer is stable on desktop with no problems so far I have become very frustrated with this build as there are so many hardware components involved and narrowing it down would be difficult without rmaing every single component individually My last resort is to seek help from a BSOD analyst expert to help dictate what the problem could be I would greatly appreciate any time you put in to helping me out in this situation Sincerely Static

The first blue screen i received today was while playing Borderlands The Pre-sequel, and gave me a Memory-Management error. The second blue screen was during a CounterStrike game and gave me the Critical Structure Corruption error. I recently built this PC and have done nothing that would put it in danger. I ran the windows memory diagnostic and during the test it gave me a hardware error. I have not run memtest yet, but will be doing it over the course of tonight. Just looking for some help from the forums. Thanks in advance for any help. VELOCITYY-Wed_08_05_2015__03205_16.zip

Hi ScVelocityy,

Welcome to the 8forums.
I have looked a little bit at your dump files and I think the critical structure corruption error is related to your memory.

Download and run MemTest86+, How to test and diagnose your ram with MemTest86+ | Sevenforums.
Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes.
I recommend to read this thread for a possible prevention of BSOD's or system freezes related to Nvidia GPU.

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?

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.

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?

Hey,

since a few days I experience BSOD while playing/starting Steam games (noticed it the first while playing Payday 2, tried Space Engineers later and it happened there too).

This only happens while playing or starting Steam games, I played WoW for hours now without any problems but as soon as I try to play a Steam game I get a BSOD. Also my games now got black borders which I was able to fix for Payday but it's still strange that they appeared at the same time as the BSOD.

My Specs:

CPU: Intel i2500k

GPU: Asus HD Radeon 7950 (AMD Graphic card)

Mainboard: Asrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen 3

Power Supply: be quiet! Straight Power E9-CM 480W ATX 2.4

RAM: TeamGroup Elite Series DIMM Kit 8GB, DDR3-1333


Please let me know if I forgot any specific logs/specs or any other information you need to help me.

Problem is persisting after reinstalling Windows, can't really pinpoint it to any certain program, since the problem seemed to start right after installing ''the essential'' drivers and stuff from MSI disket that came with the motherboard. I hope the files attached help, I'm sorry for not being tech savvy at all I'm happy to provide additional information if needed, provided that it is not beyond my techincal skills.

Thank you for taking your time to help,

Edit: I mean, thank you for spending your time to help me... Well I hope I at least make myself somewhat understood -__-

Blue screen came again, but this time I thought the error message was different! I couldn't see it properly as it flashed on the screen for maybe 2 seconds, but I think it said something along the lines of; IRQ_LESS_THAN something something...

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

Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask

Hi I am currently having problems with the BSOD Windows seems to think it is a memory problem but every time I run the most BSOD Arkham F:NV, playing (FO3, Asylum) Steam games on windows memory diagnostic tool it doesn't find any problems The BSOD occurs most frequently while playing games on steam however it has happened at random I don't have the error code that pops up during the BSOD but I will try to get it if I see it during a crash again Sorry I am a bit of a computer novice but I have included the zip file that is requested Batman Arkham Asylum BSOD playing most games on Steam (FO3, F:NV, Arkham Asylum) gave me a notice once before a BSOD that said I was out of virtual memory which I thought was related to RAM I currently have gb of RAM I have adjusted the sticks of RAM on my motherboard just to see if it was a bad port after the BSOD started but that did nothing I would like to know if it is indeed a memory problem and how to fix it Or at the very least know what is causing the problem Thanks

Welcome
From your dump reports the problem seems to be due to a bad driver or a hardware problem, which includes memory. Based upon your post, memory will be the place to start. Take this test for 8 passes. Then test each stick in a good slot for 6 passes each.

Have been experiencing BSOD regularly and occasionally RSOD. It is happening at least once each time I play intensive steam games, most recently Project Cars.
I am not overclocking.
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
Windows is up to date.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

A: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.

I'm getting blue screens when playing games on steam. The games I've noticed it on are:
Skyrim
Loadout
Sleeping Dogs
DmC Devil May Cry
Shadow Warrior

According to BlueScreenView the cause for the last few crashes is dxgkrnl.sys, and has previously been atikmpag.sys. As far as I know the drivers for my graphics card and motherboard are up to date, and I'm excluding my Steam folder from F-Secure's real-time scanner.

Thanks for any help!

Hello!
Since last weeks I've had multiple BSOD's and it seems to happen mostly while I play games through steam. Games like GTA4, The witcher 2 and Sleeping dogs cause the crashes while I for some reason can play Shogun Total war 2 for hours without problems. Games that are not connected to steam, like Battlefield 3, seems to work good as well. I don't have any cd/dvd tools like Daemon tools installed. I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this problem.

A:BSOD playing games with Steam. Multiple error messages.

Hello Kwandao and welcome to Sevenforums.

Have you tried to disable the Steam Overlay? To do this-* Launch Steam and click on the "Settings" button. Click on the "In-Game Settings" tab.
* Uncheck the box next to "Enable Steam Community In-Game" and click OK.
* Disable the Steam Overlay on specific games only by right-clicking on the game title, click on "Properties" and uncheck "Enable Steam Community In-Game" in the "General" tab.
BSOD Analyse

Troubleshooting

Different culprits pointed towards your ATI Graphics Driver. Driver Sweeper will ensure that you'd have a clean install at the end of the procedure, and by that no leftover files that'd bork the system.

* Make your way to ATI Drivers - Downloads and download the latest driver for your card, save it to your desktop for instance
* Uninstall the Graphic driver you currently have and all its extensions (do not reboot yet)
* Download Driver Sweeper
* Get to safe mode (without network) and search for Driver Sweeper in your START
* Select all the ATI components and analyse them
* Clean them, head into Windows without internet and install the driver you've downloaded previously

DirectX

* Have you updated your directX recently?
* What's your temperatures just before a crash?
* Does the crashes only happen on demanding games?
* Have you checked threads on Steams Forums?

This is my first time posting here, so my apologies if I mess something up or get it wrong. If I do, please let me know so I can fix it!
This is something that's just started happening recently. It happened once on the 14th of February, then once last night (on the 22nd), and today on the 23rd. The crash on the 14th didn't have the same screen as the last two crashes (photo attached of crash screen). I don't recall what the crash on the 14th happened during (most likely Skyrim), but the last two crashes happened during playing minecraft, typically while moving around and jumping. I have downloaded a couple of mods for the game, but was not running them when the crashes happened (the mods have a separate launcher, plus the crash occurred once before I ever played Minecraft).

I appreciate any help anyone can give me!

A:BSOD playing Minecraft, driver ntoskrnl.exe, bug check code 0x00000124

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.

Hi I just built my computer about a month and a half ago and made sure my hardware was secured tightly and properly onto the mother board I updated all of the drivers youtube any error hal.dll+12a3b playing video BSOD or streams online for the PC to the best of my knowledge due to receiving BSOD in the beginning partly because the drivers were not up to date BSOD playing youtube or any online video streams error hal.dll+12a3b After the driver updates everything is working great from playing games and the usual day to day use of the PC But when I started streaming two windows of online videos from either youtube or any other video site thats when it started to give me the BSOD But it was sporadic and not crashing with every single video playback It would crash on some videos and not on others I did some research and found a software called bluescreenview which captures the BSOD codes and this was what I found hal dll a b I don't understand what this code means because based on my research it could be multiple factors Please help me Thank you - OS Windows bit - OS was full retail - Age of the system is about two months old now - Age of the OS installation is about two months old Other hardware specs CPU Intel i - K GHz Gigs of RAM

A:BSOD playing youtube or any online video streams error hal.dll+12a3b

All of them are the HAL for Windows reporting that your CPU has detected an internal failure. Given the strong consistency for these errors (they're all identical with the same cpu cache bank referenced), I'm afraid your CPU has most likely kicked the bucket.

Before you proceed on anything, if you have your system overclocked in any way, shape or fashion, reset to factory defaults. It's good sense that despite previous success with overclocking, if a system starts getting unstable, the first thing one should blame is the overclocking and reset as a result. Even if it isn't, it can easily be returned to its previous settings.

Anyways, I have sometimes seen software bugs arise that would cause this, and even once I seen a video card cause this problem (how, I have absolutely no clue). First of all, if you have any software that came with your motherboard besides the drivers, uninstall them. I've found they are very buggy as well as gimmicky, and strangely they have usually caused WHEA errors like this, making it appear the hardware is at fault. Second, update your BIOS if you haven't already, as that can potentially cause this. Lastly, run MemtestCL on your video card. Note that since you have an ATI card, you'll need to download and install the ATI APP SDK first, as it requires OpenCL.

Those should cover any potential edge cases that could create these WHEA errors. However, my opinion would be that this is certain hardware (CPU). The causes mentioned previously have the potential to create WHEA errors, but honestly, the specific WHEA error reported here is micro-architectural failure, which is most certainly the CPU's prob.

No .dmp files included in your crash reports. If you ran CCleaner after the most recent crash, that would explain the missing .dmps. Please refrain from using file cleaning programs, such as CCleaner, for the duration of your troubleshooting.
Your BugCheck does indeed indicate a driver issue. Until you have .dmps for us, we cannot determine which driver.

Just got a new PC and I'm experiencing BSODs while playing games (generally high end games). Sometimes there is no BSOD and the game just crashes, or the GPU driver stops responding and recovers.
I tried everything I thought of, that is clean install of GPU drivers, updated all other drivers and even a Windows format, but the problem still persists. Attached please find the latest dump files and a DxDiag system specs file.

Thanks

I've been getting some BSOD's playing Warframe intermittently, and today got one playing Trove.
Tried doing sfc scan, memory diagnostics and checkdisk and updating outdated drivers with some exceptions I was unsafe about messing with (DriverEasy said processor drivers were heavily outdated, and suggested intel xeon drivers).
Also tried Verifier.exe, resulting in bluescreens as soon as I got to the desktop, mentioning something about I/O problems.

DM Logs are attached

Hope you can help with this.

I'm running windows 7 on a Dell N5010 laptop
It works fine while just browsing with chrome or using skype, but as soon as I try to watch a video on youtube it won't play smoothly unless I have it on a stupid-low quality (with nexflix too)
same with my games on steam (I only have two downloaded right now- TF2 and Skyrim) and both of them are super laggy, even with the graphics, ect all set to low.. Minecraft does the same thing.
It gets pretty annoying as you can imagine.

I've tried closing all my background programs while playing and deleting a bunch of stuff to give more space on my RAM but nothing really seems to make any difference.

Any advice..??

A:Bad lag while playing steam games and watching videos

You're running Intel HD graphics that's built in to your laptop. wont do ya much good if you want to play games or watch movies. bare minimum internet browsing. If you want to play video games on a laptop, i recommend getting a new laptop that has dual video cards. one for highperformance (videogames/movies), one for power saving. Also, your i3 processor isnt helping much either.

Generally, laptops are meant to be upgraded every 3 years. I'd also recommend a desktop if you want to play video games. cheaper, more powerful

A:BSOD while playing games/downloading, Driver IRQL Not Less Or Equal

Hi zech.

Update the driver to Killer e2200 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller from Driver Downloads | Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.

And Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

The crashes implicate your graphics card, its drivers, or your RAM.

Re-install or install the latest drivers for your display card. Your current drivers may be corrupted and/or outdated. Use the following method to re-install the drivers.
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:Click Start Menu
Right Click My Computer/Computer
Click Manage
Click Device Manager from the list on the left
Expand Display adapters
Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)Right click the adapter
Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK

Alternatively:Login as an adminstrative user
Click Start Menu
Click Control Panel
Click Hardware and Sound
Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
Expand Display adapters
Do the following for each adapter (in case you have multiple display cards)Right click the adapter
Click Uninstall (do not click OK in the dialog box that pops up after hitting Uninstall)
Put a tick in Delete driver software for this device (if this option is available, otherwise just hit OK) and hit OK

Restart your computer after uninstalling drivers for all display cards
Install the driver you selected for the display cards once Windows starts



Run some hardware checks.
If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

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.

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.

TDR is a time delay and recovery failure. Tell me if I am correct. You have Nvidia Optimus technology. Optimus allows you to use the on chip graphics, which is much less power demanding when the dedicated graphics card is not needed and switches to the Dedicated Card when additional graphics power is needed. AMD has the same thing, which is a good idea. The problem is the implementation of the technology, in other words, how they both make it work. If that is the case, most likely, sending it back, will not work. This is a common problem and I have never seen it solved but by one way, which is not always well received. What is happening in all cases is the laptop is trying to switch either to or from one to the other. The problem is the implementation of all manufacturers, is different, but have 1 thing in common. The switch takes longer than Windows allows, so Windows assumes that there is a graphics failure and the CPU throws an error. Now, before you blame Windows, remember Windows was out long before this technology and Windows limits were well known. In fact, Windows 7 is more forgiving in that area than any Operating System before it. That is probably what is happening. If you don't have Optimus Technology, then your driver is crashing and is not recovering within the allotted time. If you have had the card replaced before, there is some other problem going on. Tell me which it is, do you have Optimus or switchable graphics?

Your UEFI/BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the UEFI/BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard. If possible, use the "inside Windows" flash mechanism (if your OEM provides one) - that is much more forgiving than the traditional (floppy drive) flash method.

There are enough signs here that I have to wonder about this installation. Should this be a pirated copy of Windows, please be aware that we may not be able to fix it (as the hacks that were done to activate it will cause the OS to behave differently than we expect it to). If that's the case, our efforts to help may just waste your time. Secondly, the forum rules prohibit assisting with pirated software - so the topic would be closed if that is the case.

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.





Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program
Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure - Sysnative Forums

If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect.



Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.



Please uninstall ScreamingBAudio - it dates from 2010 and those versions were known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems.

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

A:BSOD Playing any game 0x00000124

Yours is quite the combination of BCC116 (video TDR reset) and BCC124 (hardware).

If you are overclocking that is probably the cause of these crashes, if not read the below.

BTW you have a corrupt AVG installation.





Quote:
"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.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps


STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error

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

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

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






Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

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 keep Windows itself updated.

6) Attempt to (stress) test those hardware components which can be put through their paces artificially.
The most obvious examples are the RAM and HDD(s).
For the RAM, use the in-built memory diagnostics (run MDSCHED) or the 3rd-party memtest86 utility to run many hours worth of testing.
For hard drives, check whether CHKDSK /R finds any problems on the drive(s), notably "bad sectors".
Unreliable RAM, in particular, is deadly as far as software is concerned, and anything other than a 100% clear memory test result is cause for concern... Read more
