I was playing Crusader Kings 2 in one monitor and watching Netflix in the other, when I received the blue screen with CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT.  I did some searching online, and want to figure out what happened.  Can anyone help?

Hi lscotthart :)

Usually, this BSOD is associated with a badly overclocked hardware component, such as the CPU, GPU or RAM. Do you have any of these overclocked? Also, I would like to see your BSOD minidumps.

Follow the instructions below to get and upload your BSOD minidumps so I can analyze them:
  • Create a new folder on your Desktop called dumps;
  • Go in your C:\windows\minidump folder, copy every files inside then paste them in your dumps folder;
  • Right-click on the dumps folder, select Send to then Compressed (zipped) folder;
  • Attach the compressed folder (archive) to your next reply and post it;

Faryuk, are you lscotthart? If not, you'll have to open your own thread describing your own issue in order to get assistance for it.

Aura,

 

Thank you for your response, to answer your questions about overclocking.  I do not overclock anything on my machine.

 

The only the only thing of interest that I have done, is recently upgrade from windows 7 to windows 8.1 and I had to download a bunch of drivers after the install.

Faryuk, please start your own thread with your description of the issue and the minidumps, do not hijack this one thank you. lscotthart, with only one BSOD it's hard to see what could had caused it. BSOD can happens once in a while when exceptional conditions are met. Because you just received one, I wouldn't worry about it yet. However, if you start getting BSODs frequently, and all of the same type, then there might be an issue that requires attention. My advice for now is to let it go and report back if you get at least two other BSODs of the same type in close interval.

Yes, attach it in your new thread since I probably won't be the only one assisting in it.

I'm new here to the bleepingcomputer and have the same issue as others here I guess. Am running Windows 8 and keep getting the dreaded blue screen that says Clock_Watchdog_Timeout and I have to reboot. Notice it happening when I'm running Photoshop and trying to render out larger files that take awhile. I downloaded the Speccy and did the snapshot

Can anyone give me some guidance on this fix. Holding up a project I have to finish today but keep crashing!!

 

Thansk, Darin

Hi darinlacrone :)

I'll ask you to create a new thread and post your issue to not hijack this one, nor bring it back to the top since this issue seems to be solved.

Thank you!
