Windows 7: clock interrupt was not received on secondary processor

clock interrupt was not received on secondary processor

I've been getting the BSoD with the error message: "a clock interrupt was not received on secondary processor". I've tried a lot of things, including an update of my BIOS and my video card drivers. The error details I get once I restart Windows 7 follows:
Code:
Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:    BlueScreen
  OS Version:    6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
  Locale ID:    3081

Additional information about the problem:
  BCCode:    124
  BCP1:    00000000
  BCP2:    867894EC
  BCP3:    00000000
  BCP4:    00000000
  OS Version:    6_1_7600
  Service Pack:    0_0
  Product:    256_1
I'm not sure what started this problem, but my PC was running smoothly before any of this started to happen. The crashes happen most often when I'm trying to start my computer, and it can get annoying...but it seems once I get it warmed up and it's been running for a while, it wont crash, but that isn't always true.

Also, I'm not sure of this is related, but it started at around the same time the crashes started. Some times when I turn on my computer, it gets stuck at the boot screen, the one where I can hit a key to enter my BIOS settings. It appears to occasionally have trouble detecting my DVD drive (SATA). Some times it will start instantly and the DVD drive will be detected, and other times, it will stay on the initial boot screen while it tries to detect SATA port 2 (my DVD drive), at which point it will get stuck, or sometimes it will continue booting but probably won't have detected the DVD drive.

BTW, I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

EDIT: dmp file attached.

We reall could use the actual DMP file can y ou upload it to us to debug? Meanwhile the bugcheck 124 is hardware related. often ram, HD, dvd, etc.

Have you gone through these procedures yet? http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

Attached to opening post.

So then this could be connected to my DVD drive and boot-up problems?
