My computer freezes every time I look for hardware changes in device manager. First time I got the BSOD (CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT) was when i tried to reinstall my on-board LAN card. Since then every time i open device manager and look for hardware changes it freezes on me. At the begining i thought was a problem with my motherboard , but I sent it back to ASUS and they said there was nothing wrong with it. Have tried reinstalling windows several times without any success. Other than that, the computer is working perfectly.

I tried to get the dump files from the BSOD but i havent get it since the last time i reinstall the system. When it freezes i can get the BSOD right away, sometimes it can take more than 30 to come up after it freezes.
This is everything i have connected to the computer. I dont know if this is a software or hardware related issue.
Any help or suggestions will be really appreciated. I am even willing to pay someone that can get me out of this problem 100%.
