Hi when I've been playing games my computer would often hang and would restart and I would get the error "Hyper Transport Sync Flood Error". I looked up a solution to change my dram voltage to something higher than 1.5 (the setting it is at) I have put it at 1.67 however CPU-Z still says 1.5V? The bios says 1.67 Is it running at 1.67? Is this likely the problem to my error, what does setting the voltage actually do? Thanks!

Edit: My computer is not overclocked btw Thanks!

Q - What MOBO {include revision} and what BIOS version?
Q - What MOBO "Utilities" do you have installed -> Uninstall them ALL.

Also, to rule-out BIOS evasive crapware; run MSCONFIG and select Diagnostic. Then Clear CMOS and either Load Default/Optimized settings in your BIOS. Next stress the rig with the latest version of Prime 95 -> http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/

Q - What 'other' changes to the BIOS have you made?
Q - What RAM is installed? please provide links

I'm not home right now but I'll post the info when I get home. But I haven't hanged anything about my setup except update my bios. It didn't start doing this until yesterday, could there be something wrong with my mobo. I'll post more specifically later, but I have a MSI mobo with AMD X4 processor. Thanks!

Most of the time it's the BIOS and in some cases people have had to downgrade their BIOS.

I'm looking for cause and effect. If yesterday then just to rule-out some bizarre driver or corruption -- run System Restore and use one from the 'day before' yesterday.

Also, look at the Event Manager and look for 'Critical' Errors.

So here's the what I see after a reboot after the error:

There are indeed critical errors:

The thing is even after I updated my bios, my rig was working fine for a week. It just started doing this and I haven't changed anything :/ 

My motherboard is:

with an AMD phenom II X4 965 Black edition

my memory is
Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9AG 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 RAM - - PC10666, 1333MHz

Thanks so much guys!

Download BlueScreenView -> http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
Run and scan, Edit / Select All, File / Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt. Then post the info here.

The Critical Errors seem to be a 'forced shutdown.'

RAM: 1333 9-9-9-24 2T @ 1.5v ; you are putting too many volts to the RAM: TW3X4G1333C9AG

Set DRAM Frequecy -> 1333 Mhz
Set CPU-NB Voltage -> 1.1~1.2 volts
Set DRAM Voltage to -> 1.50~1.55 volts
Set Spread Spectrum -> Disabled
-
Set DRAM Timing Mode -> Both
Set DRAM Advance Control -> Both
-
Set DRAM Timings to 9-9-9-24 (CAS-TRCD-TRP-TRAS)
Set 1T / 2T Timing -> 2T
Set DCT Unganged Mode -> Enabled
-
Set Auto Disable DRAM/PCI Frequency-> Enabled

As I stated -> "Also, to rule-out BIOS evasive crapware; run MSCONFIG and select Diagnostic. Then Clear CMOS and either Load Default/Optimized settings in your BIOS. Next stress the rig with the latest version of Prime 95 -> http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/ "

hal.dll is a hardware error and unless a 'driver' is listed a non-specific error; hal.dll is used for Windows to communicate with hardware. My assumption is it is/was your RAM.

However to cover a broad spectrum of problems:
1. Run Windows repair -> http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/fe...
2. Virus scan -> http://www.eset.com/online-scanner
3. H/W: Scan your PC for compatibility -> http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-...
