  1. Desperately need help with watchdog error


    Hi, For the past few months I've been receiving a watchdog error on startup on a new pc I've got. Most of the time it boots up fine but every 2nd day or so it just boots to a watchdog error multiple times in a row until it just doesnt and then it runs fine. I dont know whats causing it but I've tried reinstalling windows and updating all my drivers and it hasnt fixed anything. I've tried running the chkdsk command on startup to no success and scanning my computer doesnt bring up anything. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

      far?

    • Are you using a third-party antivirus program?
    • Did you make any changes to your computer before this started happening?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest carefully following the steps suggested

    Desperately need help with watchdog error

    Windows watchdog blue screen

    Hi Teemu,

    This error can be caused most likely by an outdated driver for one of your hardware components. DPC stands for Deferred Procedure Call. The blue screen error code indicates that watchdog detects a DPC running too long, which stops your process to avoid data
    corruption or damaging the computer. To help resolve the issue, we suggest
    updating all the drivers on your PC
    as an initial troubleshooting step.

    If the issue persists, you can perform a disk check. Follow the steps below to know how:

    • On the search bar, type cmd then choose Command prompt.
    • Right-click on it and select Run as administrator. Click
      Yes
      to continue after administrator permission was asked.
    • Then type chkdsk /f /r and press Enter to start the process.

    Note: Disk check will start the next time you boot your PC and it might take some time to complete.

    After doing the suggested steps, check if the same issue will occur.

    Feel free to post back if you need further help.
