Windows 7: BSOD MineCraft; error 0x00000101

Windows 7 Professional x64
BSOD MineCraft; error 0x00000101

I just bought some brand new hardware. Components:
- CPU: Intel i5 2500K
- Grafische kaart: Nvidia GTX560Ti Ė MSI Twin Forzr
- HDD (storage): Samsung HD502HM
- SSD (OS): Crucial M4 128GB
- Moederbord: Asus P8P67 Pro
- Voeding: Corsair 850ATX
- (Case: Cooler Master CM 680 II)
- A Samsung DVD writer/reader

All hardware is well connected and recognized by the BIOS. Installed Windows perfectly, boot time is awesome. Although, I have a BSOD, , 0x00000101. ďA clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time intervalĒ. I get this BSOD always when I play MineCraft. Letís say in an average time of 5 minutes.

I looked up what this BSOD could mean and how its caused. It could be due bad graphical or DirectX drivers. I updated them to the latest stable version. Didnít work out.

I also monitored the temperature. First the CPU, then the GPU. The temperature was of the CPU was rising slowly, but wasnít higher than 50į C. Looked up, Core i5 2500K, max temperature is around 70į C. After few minutes, got a BSOD. SO I believe it isnít the cooling, although itís still the stock cooler. (plan to replace it) I also checked the motherboard, was around 30į C.

Same story for the GPU. Didnít pass 40į C.
The BIOS isnít updated yet, good idea to do so? The SSD has the latest firmware installed. Iím afraid it must be the CPU, what do you smart guys think?

Please provide this info:

SSD info that I've compiled:
There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard)
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to swtich controllers also.-
Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.

While waiting for a reply:

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics: (read the details at the link) (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks
