    DPC_Watchdog Violation and Driver Whack-a-Mole


    I wish this issue was easy to fix. I have the dreaded computer crash/DPC_Watchdog_Violation error happening on a daily basis. The time between crashes and what is running at the time varies with each use. What is most frustrating is that the information the minidump provides changes with every adjustment, driver update or just every crash. It's been hard to accurately troubleshoot the issue. So far I've had:-ACPI This is the most common one, but the program at fault seems to change-dxgmms2.sys-HDAudbus-The graphics one that starts with an NAudio and graphics drivers are up to date. Issues or

  2. DPC_WATCHDOG Violation

    Recently, I have been receiving a DPC_WATCHDOG Violation error resulting in a BSOD and eventual restart of my machine. This seems to only happen when I'm watching Netflix, or Hulu, or some other video streaming. At the following location is the two minidump
    files that I have on my machine Minidump Files. Typically, when streaming a video
    the video becomes glitchy and freezes, sound is distorted, or the video just stops playing. Sometimes the video then recontinues, or occasionally it errors out with the DPC_WATCHDOG Violation. Also, I have updated all of my drivers. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

  3. Surface Win10 whack-a-mole

    When I hover the mouse cursor over a taskbar icon, (folders, excel, word etc), it will show all the open items, then quickly they will all disappear. If I click on them fast enough I can get one to open. Sometimes even if I click, it will disappear. If I
    use my finger on the touchscreen really quickly, I can get it. Like a game of whack-a-mole. I brought it back to the windows store; could not reproduce the problem, so they blamed me (they were very nice kids though).

    Annoyance off the scale, but what can I expect, I bought an MS product, I'm a glutton for punishment.

    Work around; disconnect the power cord, problem disappears!!!!!

    But this is ridiculous. I need to charge. How do I stop this problem and still charge.

    DPC_watchdog violation

    Hi, I have been getting the DPC_watchdog violation issue for a couple of weeks now. I've done a fresh reinstall of windows. Done an SFC check and updated my bios to the latest version. I just want to know what the issue is.

    Minidump link to the last few.
