Windows 7: BSOD 0x101 CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

BSOD 0x101 CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

Hello Seven Forums,

I have recently upgraded my seven year old computer running XP to Windows 7. I realize that by year five, I should have just bought a new computer but my ignorance about upgrades has lead me here. Though my upgrade experience has thus far been better then expected, I have been dogged by a daily occurrence of a BSOD 0x101.

Besides help with my upgrade, I added an additional fan to my chassis bringing the total to four fans (90mm side, 120mm, rear, 120mm front and AMD stock CPU fan). I have also beefed my power supply from Logisys PS480D (480W) to a Thermaltake TR2 (600W). This has helped cut down on the frequency of this crash as well as eliminating a 0x101 that I was getting just after the upgrade.

For this error, I have been running the Kernel Mini Dumps through WinDbg but it only states that it is probably caused by Unknown_Image (ANALYSIS_INCONCLUSIVE). I think my drivers have all been updated but maybe I am missing something.

I have done multiple malware/virus scans utilizing ESET Online Scanner, Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials. The results were clean.

I have run the suggested hardware tests. For my hard drive I have run chkdsk on more then one occasion and no errors were found. I have also run the Hitachi DFT32 hard drive test and no errors were found for that.

For RAM, I have run memtest86 on both sticks of my 4 gigs of ram collectively and separately on each stick for (8) passes on each test. No errors were found.

As far as my troubleshooting goes at this point, I am not sure what step to take next. I appreciate any assistance toward my way.

DriverMax is software that supposedly helps you install 3rd party drivers. It didn't help me and it is loaded with spyware so I successfully uninstalled it.

Windows is full updated however the driver in question - amdk8.sys which is for the AMD Athlon x2 6000+ processor, has no further updates.

I've attached another SF Diagnostic Report. I've noticed that 0x101 seems highly likely to occur when I stream video on YouTube.

I have added the suggested driver but still getting 0x101 crashes. As you read in my 0x50 thread, the next course of action will be getting a new video card. Maybe this will help with this BSOD.

Thanks for your continued interest and support of my problem!
