Windows 7: Random BSOD x124 caused by hal.dll

Decided this morning to just tear it all down and put it back together in stages. Came to the memory, used only 1 stick and 20 minutes in, I BSoD.
Shutdown the system and swapped out stick, and now i've been running multiple videos, web surfing and the such for a few hours without a problem...

So I'll monitor the system for the next day or two with just a this single memory stick and see what happens.

(Memtest86, could you have failed me?)

Your plans are always nice. I am sure that you will be able to find which part of the hardware is failing there.

Best of your luck. Let us hope that your plan will give the result.

BSoD after a hour of gaming.

Maybe I should try replacing the graphics card?

As it is stop 0x124, it is hardware, no doubt.
But somehow it is indicating to the processor more than the Graphics card.

Have you ran the test? Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Nice! It is ok.

Next step: CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

and, if you are overclocking, get back to default.

Nicely passed.
HDD now?
  1. Reseat the sata and power.
  2. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  3. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.

CPU is working well. GPU too. If you are right, HDDs to.

Before going for a new board, make it sure that the system heat is under control, and there is no accumulated dust in the machine.
