I just reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium on my laptop the other day because it had a BSOD. When I reinstalled it it worked fine for a little then had a BSOD but it's different from the 1st one before the re-installation. Now my PC is very slow and gets the BSOD like every 30 minutes to every couple of hours. When I googled the BSOD error code I found that it was an overheating issue which makes sense because my laptop made really loud rattling sounds the other day and works a little better when cooler in the room. Does anyone know what's wrong and if it is an overheating issue how to fix it?

BTW, I have an ASUS x53u-XR1  laptop with windows 7 home premium.

Hi bradbradbrad & Welcome to the forums ^_^,


Kindly follow the below instructions so that we could help you out -



Kindly upload the ZIP file with your next post so that it could be analysed.


The 0x124 or the WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR is generally (In most of the cases) related to failing hardware. A look at the dump files should clear out most of the doubts :)
