  1. Hi guys,
    I have been having a problem of getting a BSOD that only happens when I am playing games. My spec is as follows

    GPU: GeForece GTX 760 (recently upgrade problem persisted)
    CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II x4 965 Processor
    8 gb ram (tested with memtest)
    hard drive has been tested with seatools
    650 W PSU

    Also I have include the recent 5 minidumb files. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Are you over-clocking anything?

    How old is the hard drive? SSD or?

    The hard drive is about 4 years and the error I keep getting is 0x00000124.

    The minidumps are pointing to hard drive corruption either with it's data or itself. Did Seatools report the drives SMART status. Did you use the latest version of Seatools?

    I ran the test a few weeks ago and am not sure. I will rerun it and get back to you. Thanks

    How old is this computer? Only other thing is to try another power supply at this point. The minidumps show no Bug Check String

    It's about 4 years old. Its my first custom build so I have no spare psu to swap out. I can buy a new one but Is the psu the most likely problem?

    What is the make and model of your hard drive? The minidumps are pointing to a hard or boot drive issue...
