    Greetings,

    The pc of my cousin is experiencing ingame freezes and sometimes bluescreens, when playing games like 7 days to die, The Forest or the Hunter. It does not directly freeze but takes 1-3 hours to do so. The system itself is around one year old.

    What has been done:
    • Reinstalled Windows
    • Installed latest Windows Updates
    • Updated BIOS to the latest version
    • Updated m2 SSD firmware to the latest version
    • Ran driver software to discover missing or old drivers
    • Ran driver verifier (no results)

    Just something to point out, missing drivers means there's software or hardware you can't use properly or not at all. That is something you would notice and doesn't cause system crashes normally.

    This translates to the system ran a prolonged period on DISPATCH_LEVEL which is usually due to a cumulative effect of multiple drivers taking too much time to execute DPC routines. As MrPepka said, a kernel memory dump is needed to debug this one, or multiple runs of driver verifier as alternative in which I am curious as to which settings you used because driver verifier can be used for this using the right settings.

    DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

    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?
