    BSOD, Hal.dll ntoskrnl.exe

    I have updated drivers, tried a different mouse as I read razer mouse's have caused BSOD's, tried a different powersupply, i'm stumped, still random when it crashes, but at least 1-2 times a night.

    any help would be appreciated


    some more info, never crashes while in an application ie: a game, always crashes at desktop or web browser, different sites, multiple times on youtube.

    blue screen message is:

    Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
    Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
    Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

    information   Information
    Why Driver Verifier:
    It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

    How Can we know that DV is enabled:
    It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

    warning   Warning
    Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

    If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

    Tip   Tip

    Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.
