Windows 7: BSOD A clock interrupt was not received on the secondary processor

18 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD A clock interrupt was not received on the secondary processor

First of all my desktop specs are :

AMD Phenom x4 9750 2.4ghz Quadcore
1 2gb Transcend 800mhz RAM
1 2gb KVR 800mhz RAM
MSI ms-7309 mb
500gb Seagate HDD
600w PSU

I had experienced this for over 3 months now and I just noticed that its getting real bad. I first experienced it while working on a project with Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2010 (Visual Basic). I really had a bad time because I haven't saved it yet but anyway I thought it was only an overheat or something so I just restarted it then continued my work. But after opening the application it suddenly froze then the bsod yet appeared again. I started to think that maybe the software was faulty so I reinstalled it, but no, nothing good happened. Then I thought maybe my hardwares are at fault so one by one, I unplugged them and started to use the application. Again, nothing good happened. Then from that time I stopped working with the project on the desktop and the computer was so smooth, fine and no BSOD attacked me.

Then about 2 weeks later it appeared again, like a lightning striking on my whole body. And yes, I was not using MS Visual Studio anymore when this happened. It freezes, after a few seconds, it shows that the clock interrupt was not received on the secondary processor.

Any help or suggestions are always welcome. Thanks in advance.
