Requesting help interpreting a blue screen event on a laptop

The laptop is an HP 470 G3 with an i5 processor.  It has 8 gigs memory.  It has an ST500LM000-1EJ162-SSHD hard drive.  I have configured the laptop to produce mini dumps.  I have attached a mini dump.  The program WhoCrashed suggests the problem is due to a hardware error of some sort.  What can you experts tell me about this blue screen event?

There is not much information from your minidump file.

As the timestamp for HAL.dll is on 28 Nov 2019.

Did you recall installing drivers, devices or software before 28 Nov 2019?

The .dmp is pointing at a hardware problem with your PCI-E hardware, either the motherboard or a device that's in the socket.

The problem with 124 hardware errors is they don't distinguish between hardware that is physically bad and outdated/conflicting drivers.


If you're getting the errors on a regular basis and they are since a Windows update I'd look at chipset drivers or even BIOS updates to ensure your hardware is as compatible as possible with latest version of Windows.  There's an outside chance of a dying hardware component though.

You could always try disabling the network and wifi adapters in device manager to help troubleshoot.

Hello Jackie Man:   I'd like to upload the entire *.dmp file but the Experts Exchange site tells me it is too big. I configured mini dump so the size of the dump file would be smaller.   Suggestions?

Hello nobus:  OK, I'll do this just as soon as possible.

Hello andyalder:  How would I be able to use my laptop if the network and wifi are disabled?  Are you suggesting I should disable the network and wifi and let the laptop sit unused for some period of time?   How long?

Suggestions?

Upload it to cloud storage, say OneDrive and share its URL and post back the URL.

You could disable sleep and hibernation and see if it did a BSOD overnight. Or just take the wifi card out and use a cable to see if that solves it.

Thank you all for your help.  Nobus said to update the drivers.  I updated some of them (particularly the Chipset driver) and the computer has been stable since.  I will update more drivers as I have time.
