    Random BSOD at times, I've noticed when running multiple programs at once.

    BSOD displaying, WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR. Ran memtest86+ on the two DRAM sticks at different times at about 5 passes. Displayed no errors.

    Mobo: Asus Z87-A
    CPU: i7-4770k
    GPU: GTX 750 Ti
    8 Gigs of RAM

    BlueScreenView displays hal.dll and ntoskml.exe as possible causes.

    Hi,
    this bugcheck is quite rare and specifically happens when AMD GPU is faulty or drivers need updating. Something else could be at the cause however and only looking through the dump file will reveal perhaps what..

    BiosVersion = V1.19
    BiosReleaseDate = 03/07/2012
    Your bios has updates relating to the graphics subsystem and updating could be the key. It is extremely important you make sure you download the correct bios for your motherboard. I have a link for P67A-GD65 (B3).
    http://uk.msi.com/product/mb/P67AGD65_B3.html#/?div=BIOS
    Please follow MSI's instructions:
    BIOS & ME update SOP

    Post any new dump files

    Hmm...that's weird.

    I don't have an AMD GPU and My motherboard isn't P67A-GD65.

    Here's a new dump file.

    I really need to see your actual dump file so please use the tool found here:
    http://windowsforum.com/threads/how-to-ask-for-help-with-a-bsod-problem.178480/

    I went back and downloaded your first bsod zip file and got the same results. I'm not sure how these files have become mixed up but there was a previous user with the exact same mobo and I wonder if somehow his zip file is now in your thread... Weird. Please post your new dump file and I'll debug it asap. Oh and bugcheck 124 is a hardware error although I would say you probably need to update your bios but let me see the dump and i can tell you further.

    I went and checked that last user I spoke of and it is the same file... Damn that's strange. I'll notify the powers that be. Apologies for the confusion.

    Another thought, when you post the new info make sure you don't name it 'BSOD files' in case the website is somehow replacing the new copy with the old.

    Hi,
    that's better... Ok well all three dump files sent were of the same type Bugcheck 124 which as mentioned can mean a hardware error. Sometimes a Bios update will be the reason but you already have the latest version so it could be something else like overclocking or temperature. I didn't see any sign of overclocking but if you are return to default values to see if bsod stops. You say the bsod normally happens when multiple apps are open? That could mean temperature and have you checked your CPU temp values at idle and at stress?
    This app will help you monitor:
    http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html
    Try stressing the CPU using this program:
    http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/
    Run for around an hour or until baseline readings have been taken. This will also test the stability of the chip.
    Check your CPU with this Intel diagnostic tool:
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=19792

    Just check that windows hasn't become corrupt. Open an admin command prompt and type:
    sfc /scannow
    Press enter and await results.

    If your running SSD's check for firmware updates. If your running SATA disks right click on the C drive, choose properties, Tools (along the top), Error checking and finally check now. This should run a chkdsk for you.

    Driver wise you don't look too bad although I see your running AVG which has been known on occasion to cause issues. Try un-installing and using MSE:
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/security/pc-security/mse.aspx

    Post any new dump files.
