    BSOD couple times per day clock_watchdog_timeout etc etc.

    So yeah, iīm "new" here. Actually been using Seven forums for a while. Friend of mine been having a lot of bluescreens lately and unfortunately i have been unable pinpoint what the problem is so iīm asking your help and assistance.

    There have been several different bluescreen which come up while gaming and also when idling sometimes.

    Hereīs some BSODs that have come up so far.


    Maybe more, those are the ones iīm aware of.

    System specs:

    Windows 8 x64 (6.2, build 9200)
    ASUS P8Z77-V LK
    1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm
    Samsung SSD Basic 840-Series 120GB
    Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4 GHz (Ivy Bridge)
    Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) CL9 1600Mhz VENGEANCE LP Red
    XFX Radeon HD7970 3072MB Dual Fan GHz-edition (XT2)
    XFX Pro Series 750W 80+ Bronze

    Furmark: We ran it on window 15mins, max temps were 71c
    Prime didnīt crash pc either.

    Temps are usually while gaming between 55-70c.

    Games tend to crash a lot.(Bordelands 2, Tera eu, etc etc...)
    Installing newest drivers only made things worse so we had to install 13.9 version of gpu drivers.

    Gonna upload the zip file asap!

    Ps. SFC /SCANNOW found some errors but couldnīt fix them.

    Hey there. I'm new too, so welcome to you and myself too I suppose haha!

    Tsk, tsk. I am no fan of Norton/Symantec. From my vast experience, I want to advise to remove that with the tool from them, then set Windows Firewall and Windows Defender services to Automatic and start them too, with services.msc. This is just good advice and not gospel. The decision is not mine to make!

    If you want a different 3rd party security instead, I say better than what you already have, for various reasons.

    There is a storage issue. Norton loves to do things of this nature.

    But alas, we shall proceed.

    Install latest Java. Visit Let it scan and install the drivers it finds for you:

    IntelŪ Driver Update Utility

    Hopefully it has the storage driver updates shown and ready to go.

    If not, let me know and we will be right on it doing something else about it.

    Give a visit and download/install drivers for any devices the machine may have from them, too. (Especially gamepad or similar.)

    Best of luck with it all.

    this is the person who actually have these problems and its my files, but a friend of mine helped me with all of this. Anyways, I had these problems even without norton/symantec. I tried to re-install windows 8 but i still have thse problems. And i have the drivers for Logitech, and latest Amd drivers, and I have the latest Java update

    And once again. Im not the one who posted it here, i just helped myself by sending my files to my friend who posted it here.

    I hear ya. I did not specifically blame Norton, however. Alluded? Perhaps.

    You didn't mention the most important thing: Did you update the storage drivers from Intel yet, as shown?

    How did that go? Well?

    Please review the thread and double-check to ensure completion of all advice shown.

    If you still have issues after, then you are welcome to re-run the tool and post the results so I can see the new crash logs and verify that completion has been successful. Issues continuing are unlikely with successful completion.

    The issue appears to me to be the same as in my first post:

    We need to update this Intel Storage driver.

    The easiest way for now is to install the Intel drivers from the SATA section of downloads, from here:
