BSOD

Hello, I'm getting a BSOD about once every two weeks. It mainly seems to occur when the computer has just been sitting. I'll come back and it will have restarted. Here is the error information:

AND

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: hal.dll


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x00000124 (0x0000000000000000, 0xfffffa8005f36028, 0x00000000b2000040,

Any ideas? I was thinking maybe sleep mode is causing it, so i just turned that off.

  1. Well, HAL.DLL is the hardware abstraction layer DLL. A lot of kernel mode devices, such as PCI and PCI Express cards, communicate with the HAL.

    Have you upgraded all of your drivers to the latest? It sounds like something that is trying to communicate with the HAL is possibly causing the problem, such as a sound card or video card.

    A list of your system setup/specs would help. Also, the dmp file is handy as well.
  2. I would troubleshoot for Sleep Mode issues, since that's the first thing that popped into my head when I read your post. This tutorial is for Vista 64, but Win 7 is more than similar enough that you can/should check the same things.

    Hmm, I wonder if that's the problem. You bought it refurbed from where? Newegg? Refurbed doesn't always mean it works correctly. I purchased a refurbed XBox and I had to go back and exchange it twice before I got one that actually worked correctly.
