    Re: Win7 reinstall still getting BOSD - 0x101 - CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

    Update:
    I am currently running my computer with the ATI AIW X800XL video card with driver verifier running for 2 hrs now no problems. I put the EVGA GTX 460 in my old computer and I'm running OC Scanner in 4 particle mode to stress the video card. Its a utility on the EVGA site. So far no problems. I have not run the memtest recently but did several months ago when having problems and passed. Maybe I should reinstall the 460 into another slot in the MB. Any other thoughts?

    Keep everything how you have it for a bit, don't rush in and out of troubleshooting scenarios. If you don't crash with the older GPU in your problem computer, but the newer GPU doesn't crash in the older test computer, it's not a GPU issue. I would re-run Memtest for no less than eight passes again, yes.

    After a call to EVGA to check the appropriate options on the OC Scanner software I set it to 3D Test GPU Core Burner at my current monitor resolution and checked artifact scanner. The old computer with the GTX 460 was running fine for 2 hours and then I came back to check on and the computer was off. I notice an electrical odor ? coming from the video card. The computer wouldn't turn on so I removed the video card and unplugged the power supply. After plugging the PS back on the MB turned on. I then reinstalled the video card and was clear that the odor was from the card. EVGA is probably going to repair the card for me even though it is out of warranty. WOW.

    1) I guess this means the video card was bad as EVGA said I didn't have to worry about the card overheating with the OC Scanner utiility.
    2)Should I keep the Main computer now with the ATI X800XL in it running with driver verifier?
    3) I will run MEMtest overnight. Do I need to configure it or just let it run from the USB stick with the default settings? (It runs immediately on boot)

    Thanks,
    Warren

    1. Yes, the video card is after what you explained clearly faulty.

    2. Keep the video card in, disable verifier.

    3. There shouldn't be anything to configure as long as you use the USB Key Installer that they provide (it formats, installs, etc). In some cases, on some systems, you may need to change the BIOS settings to USB boot 1st.

    -- Also, I would just like to note for future reference that you should never under any circumstances power on a system if there's a noticeable hardware issue. For example, when you noticed the electrical odor coming from the video card, the best thing to do is to immediately unplug the power cord from the PSU, and safely remove the video card as soon as possible. If you power up a system with a faulty piece of hardware, you run a lot of risks, with the highest being a fire.

    Patrick, I ran memtest and no errors after 9 passes. So far the old video card has my system stable without a BSOD. EVGA has my defective card and I hope to get it back in about a week. I'll let you know how it goes after reinstalling the new card. Will I have to delete the drivers from the old card or just reinsert the repaired GTX 460? Thanks again. Warren

    It was very likely a faulty video card as I imagined, glad to hear things are stable.

    Uninstall the current video card drivers when it arrives, install the card physically, install latest drivers.
