  1. Nvidia Driver Conflicts

    I can't recall making an update or change to my rig or software, but suddenly it started crashing whenever I launched a game. I have reinstalled, first from the recovery option in settings, and then from install disk after seeing no change. After the disk install I proceeded to download the updates which I had a few hiccups with, but then ironed out. Then I moved on to my graphics card drivers.

    I have an Nvidia RTX 2080, and whenever I start to download any driver for it it freezes towards the end. After I reboot it I can maybe log in and then it will BSOD and continuously reboot. I then have to hard power it off and restore.

    Hi Jude,

    Based on the information you have provided, since you have recently made an update on Windows 10, it's possible that the Nvidia driver had conflict with the new update of Windows 10. We suggest that you check Nvidia's website and look for updates for your
    current GPU.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing your laptop after upgrade to Windows 10 with error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION, we will help you with this issue.

    Please be informed us with the following,

    • Were able to see any error code along with the error message?
    • Were you able to login in to the desktop?

    If you are unable to log-in to the desktop, I suggest you to log-in to safe mode and try the below steps.

    Method 1: I suggest you to boot the computer in Safe mode and shut down the computer and check if the issue persists.

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.

    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select

    • Here select Change pc settings and then

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select Safe mode and then press
    If you are unable to access the desktop, then try the below:

    Step 2: Follow the below steps:

    • From the Lock screen, click on
      Power button.
    • Press and hold the Shift key from the Keyboard and Click on
      Restart and try to enter the Safe mode.

    Kindly try to start your computer in Safe mode from the
    Windows Recovery Environment.

    • After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot
      > Advanced options > Startup Settings >Restart.
    • After your PC restarts, select a startup setting as Safe Mode with Networking by pressing the corresponding number.

    Method 2: Check if the NVIDIA graphics card is detected in device manager. If it is detected, update it's drivers and check if that helps.

    • Right click on the Start button from the desktop and select
      Device Manager.

    • In the list of Hardware categories, double-click the category your device is in and then double-tap the device you want. For example, to see your video card, click Display adapters, and then double-click the video
      card name.

    • Click the Driver tab, click
      Update Driver
      , and then follow the instructions. You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.

    Method 3: If that does not fix the issue, please reinstall the display adapter drivers.

      Device Manager.

    • Locate and expand Display adapter.

    • Right-click on the Display adapter that is listed and click “Uninstall”.

    Nvidia Driver Conflicts

    NVIDIA DRIVER 307.83

    The issue still the same.

    I went to NVIDIA Web site and they suggested to download a new driver

    GE force 353.62. I was able to downloaded but was not able to install it due to:

    "NVIDIA Installer cannot continue this graphic driver could not find compatible graphic hardware"

    I don't know what to do anymore

    Any other suggestion?
