    if you google "blue screen" then the error code, there is a ton of resources out there, and a lot of stuff on microsofts site
    This might be of use: http://www.faultwire.com/solutions-fatal_error/The-system-encountered-an-uncorrectable-hardware-error-0x00000124-*1289.html

    How long was it running well before you tried updating, and got blue screen?
    have you tried stress tests? like prime95, or furmark?
    also, you might try memtest 86+ (I think that is what it is)

    Also, there is a windows integrity checker, instructions here: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/sfc-scannow.htm
  2. It was running well for a couple hours. I haven't tried any stress tests. It still runs well as long as i do not update windows.. ill google and see what comes up..

    Bug Check 0x124: WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR
    is a internal CPU error. This is a bugcheck called directly from the CPU. Most often it will be caused by overclocking, or incorrect voltages applied to the CPU. The most common fix will be to update your BIOS which will reset it to correct defaults and remove bad overclocking values.

    basically, reset BIOS to defaults, update BIOS, confirm BIOS settings, run memtest86 to show that the system is stable.
    Note: BIOS updates will provide microcode patches to override certain bugs in the electronics of the CPU.
    note: windows just displays the bugcheck and its software will not be involved in the fix. (with one execption of a microcode patch that the OS might apply)
