:welcome: to the forum mate.



Yes, a BSOD 101 is definitely CPU related but it doesn't means CPU should be failed. I have seen this BSOD caused by Overheating, incorrect voltage settings, failed Motherboard etc. It is not possible to diagnose core hardware parts via remote assistance.


First we need to the details of your system configuration. To collect that, please post a Speccy snapshot of your system by following http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/323892/publish-a-snapshot-using-speccy/
