Windows 10: hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe BSOD only when gaming

    hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe BSOD only when gaming

    Hi Jordan here.

    I've recently been getting a lot of blue screens whilst gaming, this problem occurred when I was on Windows 7 too but I upgraded to 10 when I done a clean install of windows.
    I'm not really sure what is causing the problem.
    I've ran tests on my cpu, gpu, ram and hard drive and they all passed but I had my suspicion of it being the gpu as I tested an older card in my rig everything was fine. I contacted the store that sold me my gpu and after a lot of testing on my side they came to the conclusion it was my psu. It turns out it wasn't my psu because I've just bought a brand new one and I'm still getting BSOD.

    I have noticed that before the pc blue screens that my games will stutter and the fps will drop a reasonable amount and this only happens when gaming.

    It has blue screened on all of the games I play. GTA 5, CSGO, H1Z1 and a few others too.

    If anyone could help me find out what is causing this problem I would really appreciate it because I don't want to end up spending more money on things that I don't need to buy.

    Every thing you need to know about my system should be in the .zip I attached, if there's something missing that you need then please let me know.

    I tried analyzing the other dump files but they were severely corrupted . Only the recent most dump file gave some information. As per the dump there was an Internal Timer Error which caused the system to crash.

    Below is a list of 3rd party drivers present on your system -

    X6va060 - this driver hasn't been added to the DRT as of this run. Please search Google/Bing for the driver if additional information is needed.

    Kindly follow the below steps -
    1. Kindly remove the ASUS Bloatware (ASUS PCProbe Utility) since ASUS bloatware is known to cause problems.
    2. Make sure that you are not overclocking. In case you are overclocking, kindly reset everything to STOCK settings.
    3. This appears to be a hardware problem. Kindly run the Prime95 test as per the below guide and report back the results -

      Prime95 download site:
      Prime95 Setup:
      - extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
      - double click on the executable file
      - select "Just stress testing"
      - select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight please run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
      - "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
      The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
      Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
      Monitor the CPU temperature and DON'T let it exceed 85บC. If it does, then you probably have a CPU cooling problem.
      - CPU temps exceeding 60บC can cause errors in Prime95. Fix the cooling solution first, then run Prime95 again.
      This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
      The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
      NOTE: Errors should be considered when:
      - the system BSOD's during Prime95
      - the system freezes during Prime95 (this is different than the extreme slowness caused by the program using all your RAM and CPU)
      - the Prime95 program crashes
      - the Prime95 program shows errors in it's display
      - there are errors in the Prime95 results file
      More details on the use of this test:

    Let me know how it goes ^_^
