Windows 10 Windows restarting unexpectedly after installing new HDD


New Member
I installed a 4TB HDD on my system and it is working fine and everything is smooth.
but after some time, my windows started to restart unexpectedly once a day.

I still don't know what is the cause of this.
I thought it was PSU inefficiency so I calculated required wattage by the system and it turned out to be less than my PSU. so PSU is fine.

I have all the required windows update and my system is up to date.
so what is the issue causing it.?

my system

AMD FX4300 ,no OC
AMD R7260X, no OC
1x 500GB Seagate HDD
1x 4TB Seagate Skyhawk HDD
2x Kingston 4GB DDR3 RAM Module
Corsair VS450 PSU
Normal Keyboard and mouse
and no liquid cooling kit

I also did extract some crash log from Reliability Center. I am attaching all the required file with this post.

Can someone please take a look at the log and tell me the reason for these abrupt crashes.

Thank you

Probably caused by : AuthenticAMD

Followup:     MachineOwner
Bugcheck 124 is usually associated with overheating of the processor and can be an indicator of a hardware fault. However this bugcheck can also be tripped by out of date drivers, bios or firmware.

Check firmware for your drives in the link below:
Seagate Technology - Download Finder

The actual module to crash was AMD and i wonder if your chipset drivers are up to date?

If you post the make and model of your motherboard we can check the support page for updates.

As for your PSU, you are right on the limit really. Your gpu alone needs a 450W PSU:
Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:
  • AMD R7 260X - On your average system the card requires you to have a 450 Watt power supply unit.
AMD Radeon R7-260X R9-270X and R9-280X review

I'll also move your thread to the correct section.
