Windows 7: BSOD Playing Team Fortress 2, Clock Interrupt not Recieved

BSOD Playing Team Fortress 2, Clock Interrupt not Recieved

Hi,
I've been having a problem recently while playing Team Fortress 2, where the game freezes, then after about 30 seconds it comes up with the BSOD and it says 'A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor in the allocated time'.

This problem started out about a week or two ago, it happened again the day before yesterday, 3 times yesterday and one time so far today. I now can't play TF2 for more than 5 minutes without this happening.

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me fix this problem, thanks!

EDIT: Sorry if I posted in the wrong thread; I don't have much experience with forums.

Hello baconjh, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, and post back with the needed information. One of our BSOD experts should be by later when able to further help.

Hi, thanks for the quick response

I have attached the .zip file I got from doing the first option on the page you linked me.

EDIT: I also just ran the disk checking program thing and I restarted my computer, but from what I could tell it didn't detect any problems. The problem still persists, though, and now I can't stay in-game for longer than about 30 seconds.

Hey, I just want to say that I have solved the problem by taking the side panel off and vacuuming the CPU fan. There was a lot of dust in there, and it seems to have solved the problem.
