    My PC just froze and crashed.

    At first the screen went into vertical lines. Thought it was a game error, so tried Ctrl+alt+del but that froze the entire PC
    Tried reseting and it didnt pick up the monitor KB & mouse.
    Managed to get it to windows eventually where it was showing graphics glitches (like the vertical lines full screen, or horizontal.

    This was throughout load up from Bios to windows, where it blue screened and gave a message of a CPU clock timeout (or some such).

    Got it to reload into windows and gave this error result:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
    OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
    Locale ID: 2057

    Additional information about the problem:
    BCCode: 101
    BCP1: 0000000000000031
    BCP2: 0000000000000000
    BCP3: FFFFF88003164180
    BCP4: 0000000000000002
    OS Version: 6_1_7601
    Service Pack: 1_0
    Product: 768_1



    I've had no new hardware installed in months (Only a new heatsink but that is working perfectly).
    Software varies from latest to last 1-2 updates

    is there an overclock on your cpu? What is the full spec of your pc? have you tried reseating and testing each RAM stick separately? you could also try removing the gpu and see if that makes it better?

    No overclock on the CPU...

    HAve just tried resetting the RAM after the last crash.

    Specs are:
    Specs:
    CPU / Processor:INTEL i5 750@2.67GHz 3.81gGhz
    CPU CoolerCOOLERMASTER 212+
    Motherboard:ASUS i5 P7P550 LE
    Memory:Corsair XMS3 2 x 2GB (Now 4x2GB)
    Hard Drive(s):750GB SATA; WD Caviar Black 2TB x 2
    Graphics:ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB
    OS:Windows 7 64bit
    PSU: Corsair TX850W

    I've only got the one GPU, no spares, and the MB doesn't have onboard to test

    Sounds like a card going bad... Had some weird artifacts on a 8800GTS once, got lines and wierdness and then just a corrupt screen.

    In any case if the problem persists and you can't get rid of it, but you can get into windows it's either your card (likely) or your monitor (unlikely). Check your cables just to make sure but other then that...

    EDIT: However I found this on google: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...5a?msgId=da5d4d33-d97f-4c57-9784-15d637d29006

    EDIT2: Still think its the card though because of the graphical glitches, but you should look around. You can get a very cheap card to test with, if it fixes the problem its your card, if not your in trouble :)

    Had another glitch-out. Thankfully the system managed to recover partially and showed that the AMD drivers had crashed, so it is definitely the graphics card

    Have updated to latest drivers, but suggestions for a new card would be nice.



    Just crashed again, "unrecoverable hardware issue"

    wrote down the code:
    STOP: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFFA80078B3028, 0x00000000BE000000, 0x0000000000800400)

    Well the cheapest PCIe card you can find would suffice for testing, I suppose an AMD (or ATI) card would be preferable since that's what you got now.

    EDIT: Google comes up with this on your stop code: http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/177605-bsod-stop-0x00000124.html

    and: http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-lockup-debug-how/35349-stop-0x124-what-means-what-try.html

    Since you got the glitches as early as BIOS its safe to assume its not driver related. Might be time to look around for a new GFX card...sry.

    There was a trick that involved sticking the card in the oven or something like that, might fix the issue I had with my card but I never tried it. You can google for it once your positive your card is damaged since by then you won't have anything to lose.
