    Windows 8 x64


    Hey, got some problems with my PC for 2 weeks now, I receive random BSOD with CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT error caused by hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe. I reinstalled windows from scratch, 2 days worked fine, now I get the blue screen again and I cannot solve this :/
    I attached W8 log collector archive, maybe someone can give a hand.

    There's only 1 memory dump in the uploaded files. If you're using a disk cleaning tool (such as CCleaner), please stop while we're troubleshooting.

    Your BIOS dates from 2007. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

    The report about Windows Updates is missing. Please be sure that you have all Windows Updates - most Win8 systems have around 50 Windows Updates.

    D: drive only has about 7% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

    AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.
    Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program
    Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
    Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure - Sysnative Forums

    If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
    Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
    Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect.
    Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

    If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

    If this doesn't fix the BSOD's, then please try these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

    Windows 8 x64

    I did not overcloak my system. This is a fresh installed windows (1 week or so) thats why I dont have any other dump files. With the old windows os crashes were often (1-2 per day). After I posted here I uninstalled all AMD applications, because I had a feeling that AMD stuff (graphic drivers and applications) caused the problem. At this moment I dont even have the driver installed (I use the windows driver).
    Is there any problem if I leave it this way or I can have improvements with ATI driver only on my pc (installed like you described in your reply)?
    No BSOD since I uninstalled AMD VISION Engine Control Center.

    If the computer meets your needs the way that it is now, I don't see any problem with leaving it in this state.
