Random BSOD's and Freezes Hal.dll,ntoskrnl.exe

I am new to this forum so please go easy on me . I have been having random BSOD's and Freezes. They have been very very random sometimes won't even have a freeze or blue screen for a month then poof randomly happens. The Blue screens seem to only happen when i am surfing the net. I can game all day NP sometimes it will freeze but very very rarely while playing games. I will sit and surf the net a bit and maybe some netflix and then poof it will either freeze or bluescreen. My temps are fine i just recently replaced my heatsink. But that isin't what caused the freezing and bluescreens. Cause i replaced my heatsink a week ago and this stuff started happening a month or two ago. Please let me know if i need to add any other stuff.

Welcome to 7F. Two of your three dumps are 0x124 which indicates a hardware fault, but, as with the majority of 0x124s, the dumps are giving nothing away as to what it might be. Your third dump however is a 0x116 which is a Video TDR Error (timeout detection recovery). This could be down to many factors that apply to your GPU; the driver, overheating, the card itself, insufficient power.

First off, here's your dump file from the 0x116.

Code:

Download this earlier version from here and follow NVIDIA Drivers - Avoid Problems for the cleanest possible install.

Can you also let us know your GPU temperatures when idle and under load.

Try the driver linked, let us know the temperatures of your GPU and we'll go from there.
