    Clock Watchdog Timeout + Whea Uncorrectable. While streaming or gaming


    Attachment 94622

    Computer has been blue screening infrequently over the months. It got much more frequent the past month(like every 30 min.) I went through some troubleshooting with System file checker, corrected a Opencl.dll file. Brought computer to a shop and he updated drivers and cleaned out bloatware. My rig doesnt blue screen at his shop anymore, only my home. I have tried a different GPU different power source(outlet.) Ran bluescreenview, all errors link back to a hal.dll file. Not sure why its only happening in my home. If you need more information please let me know.

    I also had this error while on windows 7 ultimate. I upgraded to Windows 10 thinking OS might be affecting it.

    Hi Kevin172,

    Please do not open the dump in notepad or a similar program, these programs are not appropriate for dumps as they cannot open the dumps proper. The output is something nobody understands.

    The error 0x124 WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (Windows Hardware Error Architecture)
    This means that there are problems with your hardware, but this error is also caused by overclocking, faulty drivers, overheating, improper seating or BIOS problems.

    Read carefully before proceeding.



    warning   Warning
    If you're overclocking your system, revert back to stock clocks now.

    Note   Note
    Test the system once the overclock is removed before continuing with the steps outlined below.

    TWO

     RAM TEST


    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note


    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.


    Make a photo of the result and post it please.

    Addition:
    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.




    THREE

    warning   Warning

    Make a photo of the result and post it.

    In Furmark you can find a tool called 'GPU-Z' (if you want to install GPU-Z is up to you), when GPU-Z is open click on the 'Sensors' tab, on this tab you can monitor
    • the frequency of the GPU,
    • the GPU memory clock,
    • the temperature,
    • the power,
    • the load on the GPU,
    • Etc.

    I would like you to make a screenshot of GPU-Z after you have either cancelled Furmark for any reason or Furmark is finished, post this screenshot in your next reply with the result of Furmark.

    Ran Prime95 two separate times. It crashed within 30 seconds. Fair to assume its the processor causing the issue.
