Those crashes don't have stop code F4, but rather 124...

This points to a hardware problem. Make sure you have cleaned out all dust from the PC, and the fans are running smoothly. Also remove the heatsink from the CPU, clean both it's and the CPU's surface very thoroughly, then apply a very small drop of fresh thermal transfer paste to the top of the CPU, and firmly and properly reattach the heatsink. Disable any overclocking features in the PC's BIOS if any are set. Then check if the crashes repeat themselves.

Other things you can do is to test the RAM with memtest86+ (at least 3 passes if no errors are shown). Also run the HD manufacturer's diagnostic utility. You'll find those tools on the UBCD:


Further check if the electrolytic condensators on the mainboard, the graphics card, and the PSU show any signs of them cracking, leaking, or bulging. If all that checks out fine, it is possible that your CPU is bad, or the mainboard.

i agree - the dmp says :  FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  0x124_AuthenticAMD_PROCESSOR__UNKNOWN_PRV
so it can be a processor, or motherboard problem.
did you have overheating problems maybe?  or blocked fans ?
