Ok, Im running 32 bit Windows Vista Premium, I have a AMD 6400, asus mobo, 8600 gt or somthing g card, and 4 gigs of g skill ram.
Every time I do somthing remotley graphic intensive like play Company of Heroes there is a 90% chance it will blue screen. AT other times it may not blue screen but it will just restart itself automatically. Also at any restart or if i turn it off properly any time the computer is booting it will ask me to choose my Operating System, but I only have one so I dont know why it will ask?! Also I then have to also choose "start windows normally". One other thing that is funny is that the clock never states the right time if i fix it and then turn it off it like sets it self back 3 hours or so? and also when i go to type in my password if i just type the first letter if continues to type all by it sell its amazing! Some one help me! thanks.

If you can solve this problem I would send you this additional 450watt power supply think I won at a lan for free, seriously!



The BSOD says somthing like somthing like "Secondary Processor Clock Interrupt"

Do you have the latest drivers for your graphics card?

FWIW - you can have the most updated drivers and a corruption in them can cause errors. I'd suggest downloading a fresh copy of the drivers from the "8600 gt or somthing g card" website. Then uninstall the current video drivers from the Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program applet. Reboot, dismiss any Found Hardware dialogs, and then double click on the downloaded file to install the new drivers.

We'll need more info about the BSOD in order to help you with that issue (if the video drivers don't solve it). This post shows the minimum amount of information that we'll need to even start working on this (and how to find it): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491

And, this topic has detailed instructions that will give us the maximum amount of information that's present on your system: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/176011/how-to-receive-help-diagnosing-blue-screens-and-windows-crashes/

Ok so I did the debugger and this is what I got,
* *
* Bugcheck Analysis *
* *

An expected clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor in an
MP system within the allocated interval. This indicates that the specified
processor is hung and not processing interrupts.
Arg1: 00000061, Clock interrupt time out interval in nominal clock ticks.
Arg2: 00000000, 0.
Arg3: 803d1120, The PRCB address of the hung processor.
Arg4: 00000001, 0.

And I also did the Graphics card update, and to be exact it is a evga 8600 gts.

Now, one thing I did notice when I uninstalled the G card drivers and restarted my computer it did not tell me to select an operating system like it usually does, but once reinstalled and I played company of heroes it crashed into BSOD, and said "Secondary Clock processor fail to receive signal in allocated time" or something.

Any thoughts?!
