Hello all!

My computer keeps crashing, will either blue screen, give me the windows 10 error screen telling me its the clock_watchdog_timeout error, or it will just freeze completely I can't move the mouse or do anything but it will continue to make this noise? like a studder or something. I'm currently using windows 10 but this was still an issue before I upgraded from windows 7, I even tried a clean windows 10 install, still same issue.

 

I've also been told overclocking might be causing this as well, if there is way for me to stop my computer from overclocking, or a way to manually change any settings to stop it from over clocking that would be a great help. I fear that this may be a hardware issue and that I might have to purchase another processor..I'm not the most tech savy person but I have a moderate knowledge of computers. Can provide any other information that would be helpful upon request.

 

Thank you for your time! -John- :warrior:

.No evidence of BSOD crashes on this system.  If you are using a disk cleaner (such as CCleaner), please stop while we're troubleshooting.

 

Your UEFI/BIOS (version A07) dates from 2012.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.

You have a USB Belkin Wireless Adapter (it's driver dates from 2015):

I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 and later systems - using older drivers with them is almost certain to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have the latest W7/8/8.1/10 drivers - DO NOT use older drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.


Beyond that the system seems quite normal and without a lot of problems.  As Clock Watchdog errors are often caused by hardware problems, I'd suggest starting with these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

 

If all of the hardware diagnostics pass without any problems, then post back with that and run Driver Verifier according to these instructions while awaiting a reply:  http://www.carrona.org/verifier.html

 

Also, check your dump file settings:  http://www.carrona.org/setmini.html (it'll be similar to the W8 instructions).
