I've been running this since 2008. It's never BSOD'd before. Whocrashed analysis:
On Sat 11/23/2013 6:03:44 PM GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini112313-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: hal.dll (hal+0x294F)
Bugcheck code: 0x10000050 (0xFFFFFFFFBAD0B0B0, 0x1, 0xFFFFFFFF806E794F, 0x0)
Error: CUSTOM_ERROR
file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\hal.dll
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.

The most recent big software change I made was that I re-installed PhysX (I felt like playing Batman: Arkham Asylum and it wasn't behaving; reinstalling PhysX did it). If that's not the culprit, then I'm worried I might have a hardware failure.

What should my next steps be?

He was arguing with Shebeski earlier this week. Pay attention, fanboy.

I didn't overclock my CPU, which is a Core 2 Duo 2.53Ghz.
