CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

Hello,

My computer has recently been having the same BSOD multiple times. (BSOD 101 -CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT)
I am running 64 bit Windows 7 with an AMD Phenom 9600 Quad-Core Processor 2.31 GHz
Each time I get this BSOD, I am doing normal tasks such as browsing the internet.

I have looked over the internet and through this forum. The only thing I can find is fixes for computers which are servers. My computer is not a server. I do not know how to fix this, can somebody please help?

Thank you.

  1. The CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT bug check has a value of 0x00000101. This indicates that an expected clock interrupt on a secondary processor, in a multi-processor system, was not received within the allocated interval.

  2. I have Asus Sabertooth x79 İntel i7 3820 Processor. My problem was automatically solved after switching to energy saving mode from performance mode from BIOS.

    I had most recent versions of my drivers. It was working perfect but it started to happen suddenly.

    Try detaching usb and esata drives aswell. It might work too.
