Solved

New build, random BSOD:124, 4770 not OC, all new parts. Any help appreciated.

Hello, I've been using a 5-6year old very outdated computer for awhile.
I decided to upgrade and spend quite a bit of money that I had for myself.
( I use my computer for watching streams / using things like skype/steam to chat, and primarily gaming )

Here is the parts list: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Bairy/saved/1VIn
Here is my idle voltages / temperatures (watching stream, skype/steam open): http://puu.sh/4w6FT.png

Not shown above in part list: I have a 600mb HDD used as my primary from my old computer.

The BSOD happens while doing ANYTHING.
It happens while doing literally nothing while I was asleep.
It happens while watching a live stream and chatting.
It happens while watching a youtube video.
It happens while playing any videogames.
It happens doing a combination of any of the above.

It basically happens no matter what programs are open or what the computer is doing.
They are very random, and can happen every day, or every 3 days, I seldom turn my computer off.
Case cooling itself is very good, very little dust as well.

Any information on the matter would be highly appreciated,
I can provide any information more that you will be needing.

Stock heatsink, stock pre-applied thermalpaste.
( Going to run memtest and HDD test next restart later on today )

I know for sure they didn't happen within the first few days of use, (maybe even a week or so? Unsure...)

Thank you all for your time, hope you can help me out here. Feel free to ask for any information needed.

More about build random bsod 124 4770 parts appreciated
  1. Have you run on 1 4GB stick at a time?

    Can you please go into your event log - Start type "event log".

    And have a look at Windows log - system log.
    This may take a while to come up, and can you please find the BSOD event. 'Copy' it, and then put it into http://pastebin.com/ and then post the link for us to view.

    I tried multiple ways into Event viewer and keep getting
    "Event Log service is unavailable. Verify that the service is running."

  3. You're not in safe mode are you?

    No I am not.
  5. Have you tried a system restore? When was it last working?

    I have not tried a system restore, I'm not sure of the exact date they started either.. ( I had BSOD a few times as not 124, they said "software error" on the blue screen, I started getting the 124 more recently and more often after the other happened 3-5 times, the 'software' one hasn't happened since the 124's began.)

    Should I do a fresh install of windows and lose everything? ( Would prefer this as a last resort solution. )

    Hi stagged,

    I'm sorry man, but for a brand new machine, for it to have the default windows event viewer service running is quite troubling, especially if you haven't done anything.

    It would indicate to me a registry issue, whereby it's somehow become corrupt and is missing information. This could easily cause BSOD issues.

    If this was my machine I would reinstall Windows myself, as trouble shooting as to why the Services were not running would be alot more effort and time than it would take to find and resole the root cause, coupled with the fact there may be other symptoms that are deeper and cannot be resolved as easily. (If it all)..

    Sorry again man.

    No need to apologize, if it's the best solution, then it's the best solution.

    It is a relatively new build so there isn't THAT much to get rid of, thanks for your help teh_gerbil, I'll do a full wipe and reinstall windows and if I'm still having issues after, I'll post again.

    Don't know what could have possible caused such an issue, but it could just be random misfortune, not everything is perfected and somewhere along the line something got messed up, shit happens.

    I'll wipe/reinstall tomorrow.
  9. Please let me know how you get on! :)
  10. How's it going?

    I still haven't gotten to reformat/install due to needing to back up a bit of things, but I'll let you know a few days after I do to see if it's still happening!
