View Full Version : BSOD ntoskrnl.exe

26-08-2011, 12:51 AM
Been having a recurrent BSOD that didn't show the blue screen but just froze the current screen and I needed to manual restart. Put up with it for a while but I just got a disconnect for HoN so now it's really bugging me.

Here's the log from blue screen viewer

That 0x000000124 stop error is a hardware fault. It maybe CPU-related. Is the BIOS on this the latest (non beta) BIOS?

26-08-2011, 01:04 AM
Haven't updated the bios ever on this comp
Also I should add that it happens specifically when watching videos and playing games so possibly gpu related?

Whats the brand / model of the mobo? Are you overclocking?? That'll cause this crash / stop error

26-08-2011, 01:20 AM
The motherboard is an asus p5k se/epu and stock voltages and frequencies for gpu and cpu

Oh ok so its not the one in your sig then. So, no overclocking on this one then? What BIOS is on it now?? Looks like its up to 0501 now

This is a secondary comp the one in my sig works fine.

I updated to the latest BIOS just now, 0501. As the BSODs are irregular I think I will just have to wait and see if (and when) the next one comes.

Try some of these (http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-lockup-debug-how/35349-stop-0x124-what-means-what-try.html). Did you set the settings in the BIOS to the default settings, then reconfigure them / save settings, then reboot? After you updated it?
