    BSOD 133 (hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe)

    I just built this PC with Windows 8 Pro but have been getting random BSODs (watchdog) that typically occur when the system has to restart after installing new software or drivers. BlueScreenView tells me that the problem files are hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe (and usbport.sys in one other dump), but I'm not sure where to proceed from here. AFAIK, these are pretty generic 133 errors that may have to do with conflicting or incompatible drivers.

    Bump. My system seems to be a lot more stable now, but a BSOD is guaranteed whenever I try to shut down or reboot the system, and it always involves hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe.

    Update. The BSOD on restart (and shut down, I assume) does not happen if I do it relatively soon after logging in. I assume that there's some kind of driver being loaded late that is causing the problem. Can anyone take a look at my attachment?

    This seems to be storage driver related.
    Always follow Mr Zieglers advice:
    BSOD - DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION - storahci.sys

    Be sure to update SSD firmware. Be sure to uninstall virtual CD solutions. Be sure to disable third party virus scanners and firewalls. Be sure to update your bios.
