Windows 7: Dell XPS Intermittent hal.sys 0x124 BSOD

HW Testing Update

I have checked the Video Card with Furmark and it ran for 1 hour with no problem (Max temp = 60 degC)

Ran Memcheck for 4 hours with no problems. I plan on running it overnight.

I have an 256G SSD. Is there any specific program I should run to test this?

Thanks for taking your time to try to resolve.

Question: If all these pass, could it then point back to the CPU or would it be a bus issue between components? If so, would the problem be the board?

The CPU is ruled out, although you might want to check Intel for CPU driver updates.

None that I would know, but it might be worth to check some software from Samsung for testing the SSD.
You can check the SSD via chkdsk.

If every component is ruled out that can be tested, then you need to replace your mainboad yes.

@axe0 The software that Samsung rules out is Magician.

Also did you run MemTest86+ or another one? You must run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes.
