Dell XPS Intermittent hal.sys 0x124 BSOD

I have been getting these intermittently, especially coming out of sleep mode. I have done extensive tests on the memory, CPU and hard drive using various test programs. I have monitored temperatures and all are below 55 when this occurs. My system is as follows:
Dell XPS M1730
T9300 Core 2 Duo
NVIDA GeForce 8700M
Samsung SSD 840 Disk Drive
WDC WD3200BEVT Disk Drive
Win 7 Enterprise x32

I have followed the instructions and created a ZIP file of the information you requested.

Thanks in advance

Please use the tool again and upload the zip file.
I cannot read the dump files, this might have a specific reason.

Hello axe0,

I checked the DMP files with "WhoCrashed" to make sure they can be read. These are the latest dumps that have occurred in the last 5-10 days.

Thanks for any help you can offer. This has been consistently occurring.

Downloaded Prime95 and a CPU Temperature Monitor program.

I ran small FFT which stresses mostly the CPU. I ran the test for 2 hours with both cores 100% loaded and the CPU temperatures were as follows:

CPU Core1- 61 degC
CPU Core2- 64 degC

Blend Test Results

I did as you requested. I ran the blend test using prime95 for two hours and received NO errors:

CPU Core 1 Temp- 55 degC
CPU Core 2 Temp- 58 degC

I plan on running it one more time today.

Good, that rules out the CPU.

Because the problem is with a bus and we do not know what bus it is, we need to do more tests to find the cause. The problem with this crash is that the cause could be a lot like the RAM, hard drive, graphics card etc.

If you are overclocking anything, revert back to stock and test the system
