A few weeks ago my PC started BSOD'ing very randomly, while doing anything from watching Youtube to gaming on just about any level. It doesn't seem to follow any particular pattern, but I noticed my CPU temps were getting very hot even at idle (60-70c) and then gaming would kick it to around 80-90c. I have since cleaned my case entirely and am idling at around 30c and gaming at around 40-45c. Anyways, on to more specifics.

 

Error code: 0x00000101 CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

 

CPU: AMD FX-6300 BLACK

GPU: Nvidia Windforce GTX 750ti

Mobo: ASUS M5A97 R2.0

PSU: CX430 Stock fans on all

1 hdd 1 ssd

 

MINIDUMP Analysis: I'm not too proficient in reading Minidumps but I used BlueScreenViewer to find some information. It says that the crash involves hal.dll (Address hal.dll+4e490) and ntoskrnl.exe (ntoskrnl.exe+19ff54)

Any help would be greatly appreciated; as I need to know as soon as possible if I need to replace a component. Will upload a .zip of the minidump file on request if necessary.

lol if its bsod everywhere its not stable bro ^^

 

Thing is too when you heat a cpu up too much and for too long and leave it like that it can permanently damage the cpu and sometimes when that happens you end up with a unstable computer for life in the after math, underclocking sometimes fixs that problem with cpus that took a hit and or are old.

 

Might not be what going on with your system so a good checkup on whats going on in windows is in order, other thing worth doing is hardware diagnostics, you do any of that yet ?

 

Limit for your cpu by the way is 60~70c and you pushed it to 90c for how long ?

 

As well whens the last time you did a windows reinstall ? and what version of windows you using ?
