Windows 7: Annoying BSOD

Windows 7 RTM
 
 
Annoying BSOD

I'm getting this BSOD a few times a week ever since I installed the RTM version of windows 7 x86 about a month ago:

A clock interrupt was not received on a
secondary processor
STOP 0x00000101

When windows boots back up, it states:

Windows has recovered from an unexpected error
Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.48
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 101
BCP1: 00000060
BCP2: 00000000
BCP3: 807C0120
BCP4: 00000001
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 256_1

Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Windows\Minidump\093009-24640-01.dmp
C:\Users\Big\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-33984-0.sysdata.xml

So I have no idea what the issue is. I had Windows 7 beta installed for the last few months and never once had this issue. I replaced my PSU thinking that might have been the issue but that didnt work. I think this error only seems to happen when the internet is in use, so I thought it might be a network driver issue, but I even tried updating them but it didnt seem to change anything. Any ideas on what the issue might be?

Things I've Tried:
- Installing Dual Core Optimizer again
- Update Network Drivers (I have a built-in ethernet and a pci-card logitech)
- Ran Memory Tests
- Ran Scannow Tests in cmd line (nothing found)
- Updated GFX Driver

Thanks for the replys guys,

Yeah, I'm running Avast! on it, and if I remember correctly when I had the Beta installed a few months ago I was using AVG instead. I have Windows 7 installed on my laptop also with Avast! but no BSOD ... obviously it's not in use it as often, so that might be key.

When I installed my PSU lastweek I did a bit of a clean-up in my tower to blow out dust, but I didnt take off the heatsink. My question to this solution would be why does the BSOD happen now and not when I was using the beta version of 7 or on XP?

Hi -

The bugcheck = 0x101 = Clock Watchdog Timeout = a CPU did not respond & timed out, probable cause = "unknown module"

> 90% of 0x101 are CPU or other hardware like mobo.

Apologies for bluntness -- Did you actually install a 9 year old Linksys LNE100TX Ethernet driver into Windows 7 ?

From the dumps -- a Windows 2000-era Ethernet driver -
Code:
lne100v4.sys Wed May 03 23:07:50 2000 (391113B6)

I suggest you start by updating that driver, if it is at all possible.

Strangley enough yeah I have kept it in my system, but Windows 7 found the correct driver and installed it during the OS installation. I found the driver again on the Linksys website but obviously there is no Windows 7 support for that old of a driver. I figured it had something to do with a network driver but I'm still suiprised why the Windows 7 Beta OS never had issues with it? So does it seem that is what the culprit is?

Hi -

I looked at the other dumps that I had not seen yesterday and found 2 dumps that named the Windows 2000-era driver as the probable cause. The bugchecks of the two -

0xa = invalid memory referenced

0xd1 = improper access of paged memory


For these 2 dumps, the stack text shows the driver lne100v4.sys -
Code:
ChildEBP RetAddr  
807dcb64 88a6b38e nt!KiTrap0E+0x2cf

807dcd20 82878038 nt!KiRetireDpcList+0xd5
807dcd24 00000000 nt!KiIdleLoop+0x38
I do believe the driver is involved in the BSODs, but is not necessarily completely to blame. Several other dumps indicate the presence of OS corruption - that may be hardware failure or software. If it was just the driver alone, I would expect the same bugcheck each time (or similar ones).

It is the Asian characters in the screenshot below that I am concerned
The following is a screenshot from a 0x101 dump file and contains what appear to be Asian characters. Cut/paste caused the charachters to change to ???????, hence the reason for the screenshot -

The above are supposed to be the names of drivers.

I would advise ditching that driver and see how things go, although I believe that you will probably run into trouble. You really should re-install Windows 7. Since you are running RTM, go to TechNet or MSDN and refresh the install copy. It may have been corrupted during the download process.

Finally, to try and answer some of your questions and to leave you with additional ones -

Windows 7, like Vista, employs a legacy driver to connect to the Internet during installation. What surprises me is that Windows 7 permitted the installation of the 9 year old Ethernet driver. Was there no indication in the Device manager?

Regardless of how the driver got into the Windows 7 system, the fact is the driver was loaded into RAM at the time of the BSODs. I honestly don't understand how you ran Windows 7 Beta for months with that driver and no crashes. 4 & 6 month old NIC drivers are causing BSODs -- this past week. I am surprised that you were not here earlier seeking BSOD help.

Please... seriously consider re-installing Windows 7 RTM.

Thanks for the reply jcgriff2,

I'll try removing all-together the Linksys card to see if that helps. The download from MSDN and the installation went fine for me, but I suppose a re-installation wouldn't be out of the question in the BSOD pops up again. I'm just going to try to disable the device, uninstall the driver, then remove the device from the computer. Do you think that's adequate enough, or is there more to it to make sure there isn't any old driver files left or that Windows doesn't reinstall it right away?

I think your thoughts on this are just fine. You know your hardware, so removing the offending device (or replacing it) would be prudent. All the other drivers that I saw in the dumps had recent timestamps on them, so I don't believe other devices will cause BSODs for you.

It is the varying bugchecks that concern me the most. But I have seen where a rogue driver such as the Win 2000-era one can cause memory corruption similar to that found in your system., the Asian characters notwithstanding. The other driver(s) with no name just letters & numbers is usually what I see.

You should also test RAM at some point as well as running a chkdsk /r on the hard drive as it sounds like the system has a few miles on it. But you did move in the right direction with Windows 7 vs. Vista on that particular system, I think.

I find that running a DirectX Kernel diagnostics report provides the quickest and overall comprehensive method to look for outdated drivers. Run dxdiag then save it as a text file and just look through the report for .sys files. Then look at the dates on it. If you care to post it (attach to post), I'll be glad to take a look at it for you.

START | dxdiag | bottom-center of screen ".. save all information.." save as text file
