  1. Need help with "DPC_Watchdog_Violation" error on new PC


    As the title mentions I just built my first PC, and starting getting the 'DPC Watchdog Violation' BSOD, mostly when I try and play any game.



    I'm fairly new to PCs (recently switched from Mac) so i'm pretty lost and frustrated and would love any help.

    MY BUILD:

    Storage: Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 500GB ; Crucial BX500 2TB 3D

    CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X (with stock cooler)

    GPU: Nvidia GTX 1660 Super

    Memory: G.Skill RipJaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB)

    Motherboard: MSI B550-A PRO ProSeries Motherboard

    PSU: Cooler Master 650 Gold, 80+ Gold Certified 650W Power Supply



    What I have tried:

    I have already tried reinstalling drivers from my device manager, and have also attempted a full reboot of windows 10.



    Please me know if anyone has any tips!

    Any response will be highly appreciated.

    DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

    Hi Mattie,

    The DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION blue screen error can be caused by a variety of hardware, firmware, driver, or software issues. Now, you mentioned that you already changed the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers to standard. Did you update the driver as well? And also,
    are you getting the same blue screen error when you play other games? Or is it only occurring when you play a particular game?

    For the mean time, if you haven't tried any further troubleshooting steps, we suggest that you perform the suggested steps from this article:

    Troubleshoot blue screen errors
    .

    Let us know how this turns out for you.
