The bugcheck was: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xffff8008fd6fc8f8, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\Minidump\010818-20984-01.dmp.

    Hi Sikoo ,

    Welcome to Ten Forums BSOD forum.

    The BSOD mini dump files were debugged and displayed 1 misbehaving software driver.
    BSOD can occur when there are misbehaving hardware and software drivers and malfunctioning hardware.
    These bugchecks, WHEA 0x124 and 101 are often found with malfunctioning hardware.
    The event logs displayed a fatal hardware error.
    The computer has mismatched RAM.
    99U5471-002.A01LF
    99U5474-028.A00LF

    For all tests / steps please post images into the thread.
    If there are any problems posting images please use one drive or drop box share links.

    For the WHEA 0x124 the major computer hardware is systematically tested.

    1) Update the computer specs in the "My Computer" section:
    How To Fill Out Your System Specs
    How To Fill Out Your System Specs
    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums:
    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums Site Use Tutorials
    In the left corner below in your post you find 'My System Specs'.
    After clicking it you can find a link a little below that says 'Update your System Spec', click on this link to get to the page where you can fill in your system specs.
    System Info - See Your System Specs - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Include PSU. cooler, case, peripherals and anything attached to the computer by wired or wireless (mouse, keyboard, headset, printer, xbox, etc.)

    2) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    3) sfc /scannow
    4) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    5) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    6) Make sure that there is no over clocking while troubleshooting.

    7) Sometimes there are problems in the BIOS that produce BSOD.
    The BIOS: Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. P1.40, 7/23/2015 SMBIOS Version 2.6
    8) Please check to see if this is the most up to date version.
    9) Open the website for the computer's drivers and BIOS > post a URL or hyperlink into the thread

    10) To ensure that there are no improper bios settings please reset the bios.
    11) Sometimes there can be failure to boot after resetting the bios.

    12) Make sure your files are backed up and saved to another drive or to the cloud.

    13) Make a backup image with Macrium:

    14) Save the backup image to another drive or to the cloud.

    15) Create a brand new restore point.

    16) Uninstall CPU-Z

    When testing for WHEA hardware errors we need to systematically check CPU, GPU, RAM and drive.
    Once the bios is reset and there is no overclocking:

    17) Choose one of the temperature monitoring software applications: Speecy, HW monitor, Speed fan:

    18) Run Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU
    Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials
    Prime95 - Stress Test Your CPU Performance Maintenance Tutorials
    18) Record maximum temperatures and duration of testing.
    19) Aim for testing > 3 hrs and abort testing as needed for freezing, temperature changes (see link)
    20) Please use the Microsoft snipping tool to post images into the thread.

    19) Run memtest86+ version 5.01 for at least 8 passes.
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    This may take hours so plan to run it overnight.
    Please make sure you use the Memtest86+ version 5.01 with the link below.
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool
    The testing is done not by time but by passes.
    The more passes the better.
    There are a significant number of false negatives if fewer than 8 passes are made.
    A false negative is a test pass when there is malfunctioning RAM.
    There is 6 GB of RAM on the computer.
    Memtest86+ version 5.01 testing takes approximately 1 - 2 hours /GB RAM
    Just 1 error is a fail and you can abort testing.
    Then test 1 RAM module at a time in the same DIMM each for 8 or more passes.
    When Memtest86+ has completed 8 or more passes use a camera or smart phone camera to take a picture and post an image into the thread.

    20) Run HD Sentinel: (free or trial edition)

    The WHEA testing is done by the process of elimination.
    All of the testing must meet criteria and be verified.

    For all tests please post images into the thread.
    If there are problems posting images please use one drive or drop box share links.

    Please repeat testing of CPU and GPU so that there are images posted into the thread.
    For each of these tests please record
    1) test duration
    2) maximum temperature
    3) post images into the thread.
    For Memtest86+ version 5.01 the testing must be for 8 or more passes.

    Each test has:
    true positives...................................test result positive with malfunctioning hardware
    true negatives..................................test result negative with normally functioning hardware
    false positives..................................test result positive with normally functioning hardware
    false negatives................................test result negative with malfunctioning hardware
    accuracy.............................................mathematical computation of the above 4 results

    For Memtest86+ version 5.01 there are a significant number of false negatives unless 8 or more passes are made.
    It sometimes takes passes into the 20s to find malfunctioning RAM.

    Some of the testing can not be done directly on the hardware and may require a hardware swap to see the impact.
    The PSU wattage is low. If you have a friend, neighbor, relative, or local store where you could swap the PSU that would enable you to see the impact of a higher power source.
