    It is possible that the error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION may occur if the iastor.sys driver is incompatible with Windows 10. To isolate your issue, we'd like to gather more information:

    • Have you made any recent changes before this issue occurred?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Any response will be highly appreciated.

    The minidump files showed two different errors, a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (133) error and a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (3b) error.

    The DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION may be caused by a wireless driver, the athwnx.sys.

    Which wireless adapter do you have and which driver is installed?

    Also, what ASUS software is installed?
