I will try to provide as much information as I can so that anyone willing can please help me out:
-I've ran both the FurMark test and the Prime95 tests.
Both tests seemed to have stabilized temperature readings (~78C) after running them for a while and the laptop continued to run fine.
-Typically my cursor will hang or freeze and then the BSOD occurs - I see very briefly display glitches for half a second before the BSOD.
-The error states: "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor...". BlueScreenView shows bug check code of: 0x00000101
-This doesn't happen when I'm playing games (played Singularity on high settings for hours on end; it does happen more frequently when I have many tabs or windows open in Chrome
-I have tried to run MemTest but it doesn't even go through a full 100% pass before shutting down around the 45% mark, typically about 12 minutes into the process. The computer just shuts down, but I noticed no errors are reported before that happens.
-I have done a complete reinstall of Windows but the error still persists.
Also, I get an error when trying to generate the Performance report that says that it "timed out" so I am unable to provide that in my zip file. I have run the Driver
Verifier and selected all the drivers
that weren't provided by Microsoft and restarted but didn't get any BSOD. I haven't tried it *with* the Microsoft drivers checked. (Also, does it run in the background on startup or am I supposed to see something - I didn't see anything when it boot up into Windows).
I would be immensely appreciative for any help. Thank you.
