windows Vista bsod stopcode 101

Good day experts,

Twice or more times a day I receive the following stopcode:
STOP Error 0x00000101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT
(0x00000101 0x00000061 0x805d1120 0x00000001)

Mainly when I play an online game called Quakelive, but it happened also when watching a video and once it happened right after booting (I was clicking on a few shortcuts, before vista had finished starting up)
I also played doom3 for a several hours, but it didn't happen.

I tried to install the following hotfix from ms:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967170/  (more info: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;955076&sd=rss&spid=11734 )  
I requested the hotfix, but when I wanted to install it, it said "this update does not apply to your system" . Maybe because I have sp2.

I did a sfc /scannow and it did fix some stuff, but also said it couldnt fix everything, I don't really know how to read the logfile and it is pretty big, but it is here (I cut day I did the scan:  (http://riquard.nl/test/CBS_20100630.log.txt)

I also read somewhere it could be the gpu and not the second cpu. So I installed an older version of the ATI driver for my laptop (downloaded from the acer driver page).

I run Vista sp2 32bit on an Acer 7720G, Video: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2300

PS. I have an open question about my numpad not working, because my BIOS has been replaced recently, but after replacing the BIOS I did not have this problem for at least a month, it started ocuring later.

Thanks for reading all this!
