Alienware Aurora R4 BSOD 0x00000124

My friend has an Alienware Aurora Tower PC. He gets BSODs whenever he uses it. Mainly when he uses Java, but also when he sometimes uses internet explorer #proofinternetexploreriscraplol He gets the following: STOP: 0x00000124 (other random codes) Windows has recovered from an (un)expected shutdown: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Locale ID: 1033 Product: 256_1 Random Minidump file C:\Users\Hopkins\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-(random numbers)-(random numbers).sysdata.xml This is all I can remember from this. I've heard it could be Temps to bratty drivers. Specs I can remember: Core i7-4930k ~4.0GHz 6-Core CPU 16GB PC3-12800 RAM Geforce GTX 780 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD 7200RPM Water-cooled Non-ATX case And that's about it. My guess for wattage is only ~608W. Can't remember the max Wattage the PSU can output, but i'm sure it ~1000W+ I feel bad for them because his father doesn't know anything about computer hardware, they just got the internet hooked up (Zack's been plugged into my laptop via Ethernet to share the connection) and his father just got that computer, he got it for a good deal, too. I heard it was originally supposed to be $4k, but he got it for $3400. Plus, they're new neighbors, fixing it would be a nice welcoming gift! Smiley Very Happy

Start running through this list:

I suggest you stop using Internet Connection Sharing. All computers should be connected directly to router or gateway. Either by ethernet wire (preferred) or via WiFi.

It's hardwired and keeps giving those BSODs. It used to just be once or twice a day, now it's frequent. I'm suprised it didn't crash for a whole... what... 20-30min? ICS was just temporary until Zack's father & brother got the Cable coax cables ran through the house. They gutted the house and gave it A LOT of TLC. And thanks, when they come back home, i'll run through the list and see if anything works. Thanks! ^  ^
