6 BSOD in a day Halmacpi.dll is blamed

I don't exactly have a great computer and I frequently get blue screened about once per 3-4weeks, however I have had 7 in two days which is unusual after using BlueScreenView I found it was Halmacpi.dll and ntkrnlpa.exe that were blamed for it.

This seems to be quite frequent for these drivers to cause BSOD but it didn't help me find out what caused mine, I am prepared for it to be hardware related, but I want to make sure first.

I have run anti-virus and checked my HDDs with CrystalDiskInfo to check for errors, they both came up clean. Although I am not that technical I was convinced that it was one of my HDDs because it usually makes weird noises, sounds like its slowing down and then there is a short input freeze and a noise and then it sounds like its speeding up again and this happens at least 10 times a day, because its so frequent I simply thought it was normal.

After reading a few other posts, I feel I should mention I was watching a video of some sort 5 out of 7 times I BSOD, it could be my graphics card, its only a GeForce 120, but I did check and I seem to be up to date on all drivers expect for Realtek sound driver, however I am sure that it isn't needed.

Welcome to SF

All of your dump files are BBCODE: 0x124, which normally indicate a hardware issue.

Please download Speccy and post a screenshot.

What is the make and model of your power supply?
How old is it?

Download HWMonitor, and post ascreenshot of it as well.

Would you like a summery of my specifications using Speccy, or something specific?

Your CPU and GPU are clearly overheating!

Look inside the case for faulty fans and dust build-up.
Apply a new coat of thermal paste if needed.

Some files are missing in the .zip file, run SFDT again and let it run its course
Upon completion upload the full .zip file.

Apologies I did realize I had missed something. I will have a look inside, the computer is at least 5 years old now, I cant remember when I got it exactly.

I don't know if this will help but I took some pictures of the inside, it looks a bit dusty mostly where you would expect I guess, on the fans and vents. The fans don't seem faulty HWMonitor tells me the system fans are a 100%, but the listed FANPWN0 fan seems to be only 40%.
