BSOD after SSD install


New Member
I installed a new SSD, not in raid, that was meant to run my virtual machines for school.
This was a few months ago and they have been happening frequently. A full restore of windows was completed yesterday and I deleted everything because I am done with school, the BSOD's are still frequent.
I am getting that the problem is with my processor after looking at the dump files.
Any help is appreciated!

all your dump files were bugcheck 124.

Usually this is commonly associated with a overheating processor so check yours isn't overheating by running a stress test and monitor the temps.

I noticed that your core system drivers are either missing or very old. I included some updates below:

Downloads for Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST)

Downloads for Intel® Z97 Chipset
'Intel management engine driver'
Downloads for Chipsets

You can update both Lan and Audio by using the versions found on your motherboard support page:
Z97-A/USB 3.1 Driver & Tools | Motherboards | ASUS United Kingdom

They are'nt the latest versions but better than the ones your using.

Did the bsod's start as soon as you fitted the SSD?
