Hello friends,

i am facing a blue screen error since few days while playing new Tomb raider game , my system is working fine all the time but when i start playing hard core games like Dark siders-2 , The Witcher -2 etc. it start crashing . here is my system configuration:

Processor: AMD Phenom II X-4 955 ( 125 Watt )
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4850 ( 512 mb DDR-3)
Ram : Corsair XMS 4 GB DDR 3
Mother Board: Asus M4A88t-LM
PSU: Cooler Master 500W ( efficiency 75 % )
OS : Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate edition

I tried every possible thing i updated the drivers i cleaned the drivers with Driver Sweeper i changed my RAM several Times I did GPU stress test CPU stress test , Memory check but nothing is wrong , I formatted my system but still no improvements .

one of my friend suggested me that my power supply is poor and unable to handle the full load while playing games .

i am posting my crash dump files as well any helps are most welcome thank you in advance guys

    i updated all the drivers because i reformatted my system but still its crashing i did GPU CPU and memory stress test nothing wrong system crashing only when i play high end arcade games like witcher-2 darksiders-2 etc

    does the power supply can cause this error if it is not pushing the required power while playing games ??
  3. it could not been able to support the full load you ask ,give the name and model of it ?

    my cooler master PSU is Cooler master Extreem power 500 watt typical load efficiency 70 %
  5. i found this for whea error 124 so i would do memtest with one stick of memory at the time http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff557321%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

    i have only one memo stick and i did all the three test for memory, GPU and CPU all is working fine soon i am going to buy new power supply then lets see
  7. will be around when you get the new psu .
