0x00000124 error

Hi guys. It's my first build and I hope I've submitted in the correct part of the forum. I don't know if my problem is CPU, Motherboard, RAM, GPU, OS or something else! The system will POST however.

I'm having frequent 0x00000124 BSOD crashes when playing GTA4 and recently without the system under load. I don't wish to overclock my system and I'm currently running the RAM at 1333Mhz with BIOS settings at AUTO. Could anyone point me in the right direction to help get things stable? The motherboard isn't particularly user friendly.

Any help would be much appreciated as I'm a bit of a novice.

Intel i7 920
XFX X58i (BIOS v1.3)
Corsair 3x2Gb 1600MHz dominator RAM
Windows 7 RC 7100

More about 0x00000124 error
  1. 0x00000124 usually means there's a conflict between your video card and audio card drivers. Have you updated all your drivers? You may also isolate the cause by trying to play GTA IV without sound. If nothing happens, then you know it's your audio card, or at least its drivers, causing the problem.
  2. I had this problem, my solution had to do with my ram setting, not bad ram.
    I had manually set my ram to stock timings because overclocking with the ram on auto would result in strange timing.

    Solution: :sol:
    I simply left everything overclocked and set the ram timings back to Auto and I haven't seen this error again.
