My computer keeps giving me blue screens with the error message "clock watchdog timeout". I ran the extensive HP system test and it passed without any problems. The occurrence of this system crash is very random but can be reproduced by attempting to mine cryptocurrencies like Monero. When I start the mining software it goes on for a few seconds and then the blue screen appears. This is very unlikely a software issue, as I have tried the same on Linux, which also froze my system. The random lockups also happen when I am using Linux. Both are related issues in my opinion, because clock watchdog timeout apparently signals that the cpu does not handle interrupts anymore and I was able to confirm that input did not work after the lockups on Linux (the REISUB combination was not registered). I would be very grateful if somebody could point out which component is most likely causing the issues I just presented.
