Need help in interpreting a few errors in Win7 Sys Log

Hello All,

After upgrading my Dell XPS1710 to 4GM memory, I did a CLEAN install of Win7 64-bit. I've also loaded my usual software and the NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GS GPU driver for Win7-64bit. I have not made any other settings changes, particularly not to Windows. After Windows Update downloaded all the updates it found, things are humming along pretty good outwardly, but there are still some wierd delays (that I haven't been able to explain by reviewing perf mon), and there are some sys and app errors in Event Viewer. So I looked at the drivers on Dell's support page. They don't list drivers for Win7, but for Vista 64, and I had noted before I installed Win7, that Dell doesn't list the XPS1710 as Win7 compatible. However, MS's upgrade checking tool said otherwise, and since I was having so many problems with a 4 year old Vista install, I went ahead with the upgrade. So far pretty good.

Looking at the Dell updates, I'm not sure if it's the right thing to do at this point for these particular errors. I've included the Win7 System Log showing all errors since loading the O/S (a handful). Because of the HAL error, I thought a BIOS update might help, so I went from A03 to A07 (latest), but my external hd wasn't recognized and so I flashed back to A03. Later I got the HD running by unplugging and replugging it back in (doh!), but decided before trying to upgrade the BIOS again, I needed to get more input on the actual errors I'm having before touching things further. I notice that my fans have been running on low constantly since the flashing, which they didn't used to do. Windows System Log with all errors since loading Win7 is below:

I think there were some newer drivers at Intel's site for the system stuff.
I had to search a little bit for them.
My M1710 runs great, dual boot Win7 32bit and 64bit.

So is it obvious that the HAL errors are referring to the Intel processor's, or could it be something else? If it's obvious that a driver update for the processors is needed, then Dell has a driver update (for Vista 64-bit) dated 1/22/07 Version: 8.1.1.1010, A01. Intel's site driver browser referred to "chipset" and listed some but none matched what Windows says (T7200.) Thoughts?
