Blue Screen on Launch (Evolve)


Hi, I’m having a hell of a time trying to figure this out. I recently bought and downloaded Evolve through Steam, however whenever I start the game I get to a screen with a paw-print, the 2k logo loads, I get sound for like 0.2 seconds and then it freezes for a few seconds and then I get a blue screen.
The error message is "“A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval.”

I’ve tried updating drivers, resetting BIOS to optimal defaults, and running in windowed mode. I’m running Windows 7 64bit, and I’ve never had this problem before when running games like Witcher 3.

This is a dropbox link to my DxDiag and MsInfo .txt files:

CPU: AMD FX-8120
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6800 series (XFX Pine Group)
Thank you for any help.


This one is new to me. Have you tried “Verify Integrity of Game Cache”?

@MajorLeeHyper, ever seen anything like this?


I did verify game cache, I have also reinstalled and that did not work.


Bump? Any help would be appreciated.


It probably won’t fix it, but please try Windows Update. Then, tomorrow I’ll try to see if that “clock interrupt” text is in the game’s code base.


What I said was silly, of course that text isn’t in the game’s code base, it’s a BSOD.

When I Google this issue, I get a variety of hits with not a lot of consistency between solutions. Power management software, overclocking, hardware incompatibility… here are some examples:
