I need help... I just assembled a new system and I've been getting the "BLUE SCREEN ERROR OF DEATH" with the message MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. I've look around the net about this error and I've realized that it has something to do with hardware failure.

In my case, I can't really identify which of my hardware is failing since they're all brand new, though of course, that doesn't really matter as well. I only get this error once I run Red Alert 3. It would only run for about 1-2 minutes and then I'll be getting that blue screen error. I have yet to see this error when I'm just doing simple task (like internet browsing, etc.). My theory for now is that my PSU is not powerful enough to supply what my system needs.

PLEASE HELP MET OUT.

SPECIFCATIONS:
Asrock P45XE - Motherboard
Intel E8400 - CPU
EVGA Nvidia GTX 260 Core 216 896MB Superclocked Edition - GPU
OCZ ModXStream Pro 600 Watt - PSU
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 - Memory
Swiftech H20-220 Compact - Cooling Kit
Western Digital 500 GB Blue - HD

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Oh ok. I understand what you're trying to say... you want me to include all BSOD I got.

I didn't bother doing so because I've verified each one, and it's the same error message to all of them.

Oh, OK. You should have said so...
hal.dll is rather nasty problem.
All I can give you is this link: http://pcsupport.abo...ssinghaldll.htm
