    BSOD Caused by hal.dll, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Hey everyone,

    So, I have recently purchased a Custom built gaming PC locally and everything has been fine, except for the consistent BSODs. I've fixed some of the major ones that I have always encountered; (Bad Object Header, Faulty Hardware Page, Kernel Security Check Failure), but now, no matter what I do, I almost always encounter this IRQL Not Less Or Equal BSOD, typically when attempting to play games, or while trying to Livestream said games.

    Using WhoCrashed, I found that apparently, hal,dll, and ntoskrnl.exe are the typical culprits.

    Things I've done include, "sfc/scannow", extensive memtests, and "chkdsk", and all of them came back with no issues.

    Recently, I used Driver Booster and found 8 or 9 very outdated drivers, including my GPU driver, so I went ahead and updated all of them. Everything seemed fine for a few hours. Played some games for a few hours with no issues.

    Today, I was attempting to LiveStream, and almost immediately after launching the game, I received another IRQL BSOD. I'm at wits end, with no real solutions. The person I bought the PC from says he wants to replace the RAM and HDD, but I don't feel like those are the issues at all.

    Please, I am all out of ideas and I would really like to use my Custom Gaming PC for it's intended purpose.

    Attached is the Win10Forums zip file from the tool.

    Rule 4
    No piracy or discussion of piracy allowed at all. Such as software, music, videos and other intellectual property violations (e.g. downloading youtube videos locally etc) - it is forum policy that no help shall be given to people who knowingly steal software or services.

    One of the main reasons for this is that the act of pirating software will inevitably change the working of software and make investigation and repair impossible. Please install a legitimate copy of the software and if you are still experiencing the issue we will be pleased to assist - No further assistance will be provided until we are satisfied that the software is genuine.
