Oh boy...

Bug Check 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

This indicates that an expected clock interrupt on a secondary processor, in a multi-processor system, was not received within the allocated interval.


The only time I've EVER seen this BSOD occur is due to an overheated component [CPU or GPU in particular]. Its possible a really badly written driver could cause this as well, but I very much doubt any official driver could possibly pass Microsoft certification without this being found...

So check temps, and make sure nothing is getting to warm.

BSOD's are memory 95% of the time. Could also be a failing or underpowered power supply or a driver issue.

Today's cpu's throttle or shut down when the overheat.

Look at the speed, timings and voltage of your ram on the sticker, then check bios is set to those settings. If settings are correct, test the memory with memtest86.
