My internet got disconnected. I removed my Ethernet cable and plugged it to the required port and then the light started glowing showing that I can access my internet now. I tried to access the Internet but suddenly my computer got stuck (hung). I waited for 5 minutes but it wasn't responding, so I rebooted. The following is the error reported by Windows. I hadn't have any blue screen appearance in this event Why does Windows call it "Blue screen error."

Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7600. Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem: BCCode: 124
BCP1: 00000000 BCP2: 86280024 BCP3: 00000000 BCP4: 00000000 OS Version: 6_1_7600 Service Pack: 0_0 Product: 256_1

    Is this a reoccurring event or are you just interested in this particular case? What is the OS and version?

  • @mdpc OP and tags say Windows, dump says 6.1 = Windows 7 (or possibly Windows Server 2008 R2). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_NT_6.1 Windows NT 6.1 build 7600 comes awfully close to Windows 7 RTM en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7#Development_history (bottommost paragraph says Win7 RTM is 7600.16385.090713-1255) and "Service Pack: 0_0" appears to support that.

  • upload the file C:\Windows\Minidump\080714-25677-01.dmp to a cloud service (Dropbox, OneDrive). 0x124 = fatal hardware error. Aug 8, 2014 at 4:13

Just because you didn't see the blue screen with your eyes doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Windows is set to reboot on blue-screen by default, so it may have done that -- faster than you could see, and then it worked properly after the reboot, so you just never noticed.

That's why it also logs it. ;)

  • The OP says the system froze. After some time, the OP forced a reboot. I don't see how a BSOD auto-reboot would enter into that picture.

    @MichaelKjörling If he rebooted it, and it BSoDed and then rebooted again on its own, it could easily seem like one prolonged reboot. REgardless, if there's a log of a bluescreen error, then there was a bluescreen error... :) Aug 7, 2014 at 21:07
