Win 7 A Clock Interrupt... BSOD (101 Error)

Go to your motherboard's website and check your version of your BIOS. See if there are any problems you are having that are solved by a a later version. I do not often recommend flashing the BIOS because there is a risk involved. If there is problem addressed by a BIOS that applies to your computer, consider flashing your BIOS to the latest version. If you choose to do this, flash you BIOS outside of Windows.

Run Prime 95 again to test your CPU and your ram. Carefully the instructions in this tutorial:
CPU - Stress Test with Prime95. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs). Post back with your results.

Just download the latest BIOS from your motherboard manufacturer's website, run the .exe or the updater to update the BIOS
Run Prime95, it will test your CPU and report any errors

Is your CPU overclocked?

Your motherboard vendor should provide a utility (and yes, unfortunately, most still use DOS utilities to flash the BIOS) and documentation on how to perform the actual upgrade.
