Random BSOD ntoskrnl + hal.dll error

Hello,

Since two weeks, I had been fighting to find any solution to my problem but in vain. So i decided to ask here for some help. I swap RAM, HDD, GPU , PSU but in vain. I think that my CPU may be failing.
I attached 2 minidump to this thread since I just re-install win again.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Let us know the results.

Hello,

Everything is by default, even the win is freshly installed. And i don't know how to overclock.

Here is the speccy snapshot : http://speccy.piriform.com/results/N...24GMYS6GIOYmPe

As for the other test, I'll do it overnight and post the results afterwards.
I forgot to add that on my 500GB HDD, i did three partition, 60gb, 203gb, 203gb. On the 60gb, I installed win xp and on that also I got BSOD.

Thank you for your help.

For furmark, did the test for 30mins, no BSOD or error.
For Prime95, its different, as soon as I launch the test, got one error. See attach printscreen and result.txt also.
For memtest, 8 pass, 0 error.

Good night and thank again.
