    Random BSOD with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION when trying to access a website


    Hello,


    Tonight I had a rather disturbing experience; while attempting to access a specific website with an auto-loading video player on the page, my computer completely locked up and, after a few minutes, I got a BSOD with the DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error. I restarted, windows updated, and I tried to reload my browser with the same page - and it did it again. I find it strange that a website with a video player could cause this problem, and am now worried I have a hardware failure or issue somewhere causing a problem.


    I have the minidump file, but don't know how to read it or if I can upload it here for someone to look. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Random BSOD while browsing internet


    BitDefender is nothing special. mwac.sys causes BSODs anywhere.
    A tiny documentation can be found here: Solved Random BSODs - Windows 10 Forums
    In that very thread, the suggested action apparently worked.

    The storage and network filters of any third party antivirus can cause BSODs. Neither MBAM nor BitDefender is any special. For a regular antivirus, it may be shifted to an alternative; but MBAM has no alternative. So a clean install of the said program is the most feasible first step.
    As far as the first step is not failing, it is better to not think for the second step. Because the BSODs are not universal, failure at the first step is not universal; and success at the second step is also not universal.
    That is why I posted that my suggestion may work, or may not. Let us see where it goes.

    Hello Matt,

    I regret for the inconvenience you are facing with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION on your system. We will help you with this issue.

    I suggest you to unplug all external devices connected to the system and restart the system to check if the issue persists.

    Sometimes new hardware can cause blue screen errors. Since you recently added new hardware to your computer, shut down your system, unplug the new hardware, and then restart to check the status.

    Many blue screen errors can be resolved by making sure that Windows is up to date. In the search box on the taskbar, enter Windows Update, select Windows Update. On the Windows Update page, select Check for updates.

    I suggest you to Run System Maintenance Troubleshooter
    and check if it helps:

    System Maintenance troubleshooter finds and clean up unused files and shortcuts and performs maintenance tasks.

    Follow the steps given below:

    • Type Troubleshooting in the
      Search box from the desktop.
    • Select the Troubleshooting option.
    • Select View All option and select the
      System Maintenance.
    • Click on Next to perform the
      System Maintenance troubleshooter and follow the steps.


    I also suggest you to follow the article below and check if it helps:

    Troubleshoot blue screen errors

    Random BSOD with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION when trying to access a website

    Random BSOD mostly during idle usage - DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

    Thanks for the suggestion, I did ask the OP to check and according to post #14 he does have the logger running. My next thought was that he had an insufficient size of dump allocated and that logging was not being recorded with the dump file.
