So i've been getting very regular blue screens only while playing games, and I thought it was about time to try and fix this as it has been happeneing nearly every 10-15 minutes after playing. (specifically the games played are bf3, arma 2, guild wars 2 and counterstrike global offensive).
The error I get on the blue screen is "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval" and it's the exact same message every time. Sometimes my computer will lock up and play a horrible sounding noise (sounds a bit like "errrrrrrrttttt") it will mostly BSOD shortly after but sometimes it even comes back. I downloaded blue screen viewer and it seems from there that a driver
called "ntoskrnl.exe" is the main culprit, however some other drivers
are showing up as the cause, this one (ntoskrnl.exe) seems to be the main one causing it. I've attched the mini dump files for the last 5 blue screens.
My system specs are:
OS: Windows 7 ult 64bit
GPU: Ati Raedeon 6850HD
CPU: i5-2500k @ 3.3GHz
Memory: 8gb ripjawsX (2x4gb)
PSU: 700w corsair (cant quite remember)
Mobo: Asus Intel LGA1155 P8P67-M PRO
HDD: 60GB SSD with operating system on (ocz vertex II) 2TB internal storage (has all games on)
Note that this is a custom build built by myself, I have never overclocked this setup all the bios settings are default, the bios is fully up-to-date, latest video drivers etc. It ran fine for a month or two after first building this. I've done stress tests on both the CPU and the graphics card and both seemed fine under loading, temperature of the CPU and GPU never goes higher than 67 degrees, and idles at around 32degrees.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, many thanks.
