Blue Screen Of Death

This screen appered randomly at first but now it pops up everytime before im able to enter windows vista or XP:

a clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval.

stop: 0x00000101 (0x00000031, 0x00000000, 0x8b714120, 0x00000002)

I have RMA'd the processor (phenom 9600 black edition 64 bit) but it still happens so i flashed the bios... still happening... tried putting the ram (2 sticks of ocz ddr2 1066 dual channel ram) in every differnet configuration possible... still getting BSOD. also, my mobo is an XFX nForce® 750a SLI Motherboard and my graphics card is an XFX GeForce 260 and i have tried taking out the video card but I still get the BSOD... I'm ready to RMA the MOBO but if I can resolve this without RMAing that would be great.

    at first i would get the bsod after being in windows 10 min - 1 hour but now i get the bsod before i even get into windows and once it bsod's i have to manually restart my computer.

    ive reformated the hard drive like 3 times but still get the error so then i took out that hard drive and tryied to use an old 10Gb Hard drive and had some success but it froze while installing XP both times I tried to install it so I will try a different and bigger harddrive tonight.

    but I've already returned the CPU for a new one and it still does it... Maybe the MOBO if it's not the HD?

  • it1337 May 14, 2009

    So I RMA'd the CPU about 8 months ago and got a new one back and still nothing, so I RMA'd the motherboard about a month ago and still getting the BSOD so I called the mobo manufacturer and told them and the tech on the phone told me that the cpu manufacturer (AMD) messed up on their 9500 & 9600 model processors and that I would need to get a 9650 because it has different stepping. I called AMD and they agreed and I was able to RMA the CPU (Again) and they sent a 9650 and my computer has been working flawlessly since!!!! Thank you all for your help. I really appreciate it.

That would indicate that the hard drive is no good and either has a bad sector or needs to be replaced. Also before going out and buying yourself a new drive run the CHKDSK on the recovery console of the os disk. If that does not work trying reformatting. If it still does not work you will need to replace the drive.

    if you are still having trouble with the bsod after switching to a known good HD try checking your CPU.

  • machadojr_fe Jan 16, 2009

    Yes that would be the next thing to check if the hard drive and then the cpu are both known to be good and do not work check the motherboard.

- Start your old window in safe mode And follow these steps

- Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
- Update drivers for your hardware.just go to site of your laptop manufacturer Once there enter the model number OR service tag of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.

If problem still exists, then I will suggest you to get Intel software partner reliable program Reginout to fix your annoying blue screen problem.

This is Probably the BSOD i.e. Blue screen of death error...
1. Uninstall any programs that you had installed recently. Sometimes, there is a conflict in drivers installed on your computer that causes the blue screen error to pop up. In most cases, this does not happen, but if it does, Windows provides you a roll back feature where you can bring your PC's operating system back to its original functioning state.
2. Random Access Memory is faulty. When the Random Access Memory is faulty, the PC stops functioning everytime that area of the RAM is accessed by the CPU. This causes your PC to halt almost at Random. A simple process of elminination is just to remove 1 stick of RAM and see if the problem goes away. If it does, your PC is fixed!
3. Registry Errors Over time, the registry of your windows gets cluttered with tons of information. If you experience slow down in your PC during boot up times, opening up of new folders, surfing windows, its likely your registry has a ton of information it needs to wade through. That being the case, its a good idea to get a good registry cleaner and improve the performance speed of your PC. Errors fixed in your registry can also prevent Blue screen error crashes.

You can go to BIOS and run the HDD self test. Seems your HDD is dead. If its passed then its fine, if not it will give you a error message.

You need to purchase a new HDD.

Hi i am getting blue screen error in laptop


You have my sympathy :-( for you have gotten the THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!! The only true way to destroy this demon is to reinstall your operating system (Windows XP, Vista, etc.) But bcuz its a Dell you may get lucky =) Restart your pc, at the screen that shows the Dell icon press f8, this will take you to a screen with lots of options, scroll down till you get to Last Good Configuration or something to that effect. press enter and if your lucky, you will have defeated the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH LOL. Hope this was helpful. Good Luck =)

The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSOD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is an error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down, to prevent damage.
Bluescreens on NT-based Windows systems can be caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware. In the Win9x era, incompatible DLLs or bugs in the kernel of the operating system could also cause bluescreens.
Bluescreens can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory, power supply issues, overheating of components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits. Bluescreens have been present in all Windows-based operating systems since Windows 3.1; earlier, OS/2 and MS-DOS suffered the Black Screen of Death, and early builds of Windows Vista displayed the Red Screen of Death after a boot loader error.

I hope it helps!!!
