ok this is month NUMBER 3 trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with my computer...

Here is a list of what ive done

Memtest86+ = pass

3dMark06 = pass (CPU and Graphics)

ive changed memory slots.

ive tried 1 stick of memory at a time in ALL of the motherboard memory slots.

tried both of my 4870's in different computer and no problems...

CPU is LGA 775 Motherboard is LGA 775

CPU temps rarely go over 40C

Graphics card temps rarely go over 45C

Ive sent my motherboard (Rampage Extreme) to ASUS 30 states away. It came back with  perfect scores and no defects according to asus and it passed all there tests.

Ive had 3 different HDD in my computer ive loaded windows 7 twice and vista 3 times.

my power supply is more than enough.

This is the bluescreen codes

BCCode: 124
BCP1: 0000000000000000
BCP2: FFFFFA80070B1030
BCP3: 00000000F2000000
BCP4: 0000000000060151
OS Version: 6_0_6001
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1
Server information: 5958fafe-8e6f-4f32-8ea5-d204b8034515
 

im litterly thinking of throwing the whole computer away and building a new one. In my many years of experience with computers ive never seen something like this.

Only thing i havnt tried is the sound card and CPU but if the CPU is dead why does it turn on? so im ruleing out CPU.

Could soundcards cause bluescreen likes this?

When i bluescreen during a 3D game some lines shoot accross the screen kinda looks like snow for a fraction of a second>then black screen> then blue screen while the sound from the game loops.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I CAN TRY OR CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THE NUMBERS AND LETTERS MEAN ON THE BLUESCREEN.

as you can see im very frustrated

Thanks pretty soon its going to be bat meets computer...

TRI or SLI video cards on 64-bit windows can do something like this with some games.

 

I found this on Google:

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Have you tried updating your motherboard bios? I have a similar problem when I upgraded my ram and when I updated the bios, it solved my problem.

I've had motherboards that are possessed with evil spirits and nothing you can do can save yourself of the hell spawn until you smash it with a hammer and buy another brand of motherboard. I'm not joking.

A sound card can cause a bluescreen, as can any other type of hardware.

Then again, not all blue screens are always hardware related, they can be related to issues within the OS itself.

The first thing I would recommend doing is update your motherboards BIOS, as suggested by aigamerDS, as this has solved many BSOD issues for myself.

BSODs can even be caused by software. Before the recent update, the Zune software caused BSODs if I had it open for a longer time.

So your blue screens are happening only when running a game?

If it is a 3D application that is causing the errors, than most often this points towards the video card.

I would recommend that you visit your motherboard manufacturers website and download an update for your BIOS and install it; and if you do not know how to do this, it's just a quick Google away.

Another thing you may want to consider is updating the drivers for your video card. Be sure that the ones you are using are up to date and specifically for your card and or series.

Have you used the 4870 in another computer running a 3D application such as a game?

Just a few tips.

its random sometimes in game sometimes in a web browser sometimes it wont get to the desktop before blue screening but i just got off the phone with Asus tech support and they said that its a firm ware issue with 1TB hard drives... but i highly dought that... then again all 3 drives that ive used have been 1TB HDD.

 

DarkAnoma1y yes i have used both 4870's on another computer with no problems at all

Are the hard drives you are using Seagate?

If so, Seagate is notorious for their firmware basically "eating itself" with the 1TB models. I would contact Seagate tech support if this is the case, I will have to agree with the ASUS tech support; it certainly sounds feasible.

I think you're running compatibility problem of windows 7 64bit mode with your motherboard bios and driver.  I bump into some freeze and bsod problem with both 64bit OS (windows and linux).  Apparently 64bit OS aren't stable yet.  Try to run the 32bit mode windows and see how it goes if you have one (I fix mine going back to 32bit mode).
