    Greetings, I've recently started to have a sort of BlueScreen errors.
    It started a week before while I was playing a game. The screen went black, but the sound kept going in a form of "zzzzz".
    I let it reboot by itself. However, it didn't. I had to hard restart the PC. When it turned on, I got a notification that Windows had an error.

    Problem signature:

    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.
    Locale ID: 10266

    Additional information about the problem:

    BCCode: 124
    BCP1: 0000000000000000
    BCP2: FFFFFA8004BCF8F8
    BCP3: 0000000000000000
    BCP4: 0000000000000000
    OS Version: 6_1_7600
    Service Pack: 0_0
    Product: 256_1

    Files that help describe the problem:


    Before you say that my PC is weak...it supports games I play on their max qualities.
    But, the more resources needed - less time until BSoD.

    System Specs:
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
    Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 @2.8GHz
    ATI Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256bit GDDR5
    8GB RAM

    Some of games I play - Crysis 2, Need for Speed Shift 2 Unleashed...

    BlueScreen started when I played Crysis 2.
    But, after I experimented with the other games it kept repeating itself.
    I even used RegistryBooster which additionally damaged my OS.
    Then I had no choice but to reinstall the Windows. I copied the files from D onto C (save games etc.).
    And after establishing strong system bases I started to play a game. 10 minutes after - BlueScreen, the same problem.

    I tried running in compatibility, but it solved nothing.

    Please, help!

    Ask for any additional info.

    Sorry, last time I got BSoD I had to restart manually. :( The BSoD screen was black, all black.
    After restarting, it was all info I got. I copied the info from Details option.

    I use ESET Nod32 AV4 and my PC is virus-free. I scan every 2 days. And it is on 24/7. ;)
    I downloaded RegistryBooster, but it additionally damaged my OS. For an example, loading Personalization ultimately leads to an alert that there's missing a sys driver. :confused:

    Then I copied SaveGames to D disk before reinstalling W7.
    Still, after reinstall - I get the same BSoD.

    Anything else?

    Here's the Minidump file, if someone can analyze it.
    The sysdata file has gone.

    BlueScreen Classic XP View

    A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
    to your computer.

    The problem seems to be caused by the following file: ntoskrnl.exe

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
    restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
    these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
    If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
    for any Windows updates you might need.

    If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
    or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
    If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
    your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
    select Safe Mode.

    That was shown to me by BlueScreenView.
    Now, hardware is okay. And cooling is no problem.
    However, one more detail, this is interesting - when I play a game, first 10 minutes are working perfectly and then small bugging starts and then BSoD goes almost a min after.
    But, if I alt+tab minimize to Windows a couple of times, after 30 minutes game starts to seriously lag.
    Remember, PC specs support max quality.

    Thank you, tfwboy for giving me the link. I hope this makes easier for you pros to have any idea about the problem's initialization.

    You're welcome. When the BSOD involves the NTOSKRNL things can get complicated, indeed. A lot of times I usually resort to an in-place repair install if a System Restore doesn't solve these issues. Here's a good tutorial on doing an in-place Repair install for Windows 7:


    Good luck!

    It was interested, however... I do not understand, but I haven't changed my cooling a lot since BSoD errors started. After a week of not pushing PC to process hard enough, BSoD stopped. I suspect it was a kind of a hardware overload or some sort of thing. :D
    I also monitored cooling/heating, my RAM was working optimally. But my GPU's temp was even jumping to 90°C. The security shut-down was enabled to act on 100°C heating. Now, I monitor temp when playing games, and the temp jumps to no more than 70°C. I am sure I won't have any problems with games which aren't as requiring as Crysis series. I repeat, all I did in this week was not pushing my PC too hard and cleaning small pieces of dust, although there was almost nothing of it to be removed.

    Thanks for helping me, to all of You. Also, making this topic was an introduction to the forums, to me and I am very satisfied. (y)
