Windows 7: BSOD randomly when using laptop. Usually after 5-10 mins.

BSOD randomly when using laptop. Usually after 5-10 mins.

Hello. I'm new to this forum and I really need some help.
I've been getting the BSOD for about a week and a half now. At first, I didn't worry much because it didn't seem like a big problem as it was happening randomly. Then it started becoming more frequent that I would get it after 5-10 minutes of using the laptop after startup.
After checking the dump that another bluescreenview program made, I found that the problem was with a driver by the name "hal.dll".
I have included the dump in the attachments. Any and all help would be appreciated.
