    Random BSOD with CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT error


    Hi, I have had my PC for 3 years now.

    This is the following specs:
    Motherboard: ASRock AB350M Pro4 AM4
    CPU: AMD RYZEN 5 1600 6-Core 3.2 GHz (3.6 GHz Turbo)
    RAM: 32 GB
    Power Supply: SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W ATX12V
    OS: Windows 10 Pro Build 19041.329

    Ever since sometime last year, I would infrequently get a BSOD every once a while involving a CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. I wasn't able to figure much out but it didn't occur often enough to really bother me. However, recently I have noticed that it occurred more frequently. Another side note that I've also noticed is that when I restart my computer or shut it down and reboot, it will sometimes be much slower than usual and will stay that way until I've performed another shut down + reboot / restart.

    Here is a dump file I got recently.

    Anyone got any idea why this is happening?

    Thanks!

    :)

  2. CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT BSOD

    Hello All,

    My computer has been experiencing BSOD's starting last week. The BSOD will only occur while I am playing a videogame and even then the time in which the BSOD occurs will vary each time. I could have just booted the game or have been playing for an hour.
    The error code is CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. I checked my minidump file and the Image Name was Unknown_Image. I need help as I don't know what to do to fix this. Minidump pasted here:

    Random BSOD while browsing internet


    BitDefender is nothing special. mwac.sys causes BSODs anywhere.
    A tiny documentation can be found here: Solved Random BSODs - Windows 10 Forums
    In that very thread, the suggested action apparently worked.

    The storage and network filters of any third party antivirus can cause BSODs. Neither MBAM nor BitDefender is any special. For a regular antivirus, it may be shifted to an alternative; but MBAM has no alternative. So a clean install of the said program is the most feasible first step.
    As far as the first step is not failing, it is better to not think for the second step. Because the BSODs are not universal, failure at the first step is not universal; and success at the second step is also not universal.
    That is why I posted that my suggestion may work, or may not. Let us see where it goes.

    BSOD whea_uncorrectable_error and clock_watchdog_timeout

    Hello,

    After Cmos reset and clean Windows 10 install I'm started getting some BSODs.
    First time I've got whea_uncorrectable_error and some time later clock_watchdog_timeout.

    Now I'm getting clock_watchdog_timeout all the time when I try to start AIDA64 stability test and in the middle game of CS:GO.

    Here is dump from bluescreenview:
    http://tintaiexcess.com/dmp.htm

    And here is the dump files from "C:\Windows\Minidump":

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/ap25qa4ilr4gtc0/080315-7359-01.dmp

    My CPU is running at 4.6G at 1.328V. RAM at 1866Mhz at 1.5V.
    Stock looks stable.

    Thanks
