Random Windows 8 BSOD: DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

Q: Random Windows 8 BSOD: DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

I have had about 5 or so BSODs since installing windows 8 about a week ago, this being the latest. I turned on my computer a little while ago, and as I began using it I noticed the system was "hiccuping" every few seconds. I would be moving my mouse then it would freeze for ~.5 seconds before continuing, this would happen about every 5-10 seconds. It wasn't just my mouse doing it because text entry would freeze as well if I happened to be typing.

While this was happening I opened up the nvidia control panel and turned on one of my secondary monitors, after doing that I was given a black screen on both of them followed by this BSOD about 10 seconds later.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Got hit with another one, attached additional minidump.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I've installed Windows 8 last year in January 2013. It was working without any problems until they released the update to Windows 8.1. Ever since I updated my Windows 8 to 8.1. I have been having the same BSOD. I've tried updating my graphics drivers and looked for new driver for my motherboard but there is no up to date drivers for my motherboard that supports Windows 8.1. However I have updated my graphics drivers to the latest one 335.23 but still no success.

Hope somebody here can help me with my problem because everything was working fine before the update to Windows 8.1

Cheers,

Your BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

As there are no drivers for 8.1 at the motherboard site, I have to wonder if this board is compatible w/Win8.1 If this is the case you may have to downgrade to 8 or even 7 in order to achieve stability.

F: drive only has about 9% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

You have 3 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

This device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

Hi Guys, I am getting BSOD crashes randomly while plugging my 3G USB dongle(although not in all occasions). Although sometimes it doesn't get crashed. At first I thought outdated Drivers mighty be the problem, so i updated all my drivers. But still the problem isn't solved. It is to be noted that BSOD doesn't happen when the 3G dongle is already connected while my laptop is turned on. It only crashes if i plug while my Laptop is running.
I have uploaded my BSOD log files as instructed.

Hi,
My system was running fine with Windows 7, then I did an in-place upgrade to Windows 8, i.e. installed on top of Windows 7. The install went smoothly, but a few days later, it started crashing. I've updated all my drivers, and tested RAM using Memtest, and CPU using Orthos [Prime95]. I would much appreciate some help with this.
I'm attaching the zip file created by SF Diagnostic Tool. I looked at the dumps using WhoCrashed, but they give no solution, here's what they say [same message for the last 4 crashes]:
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x7A040)
Bugcheck code: 0x133 (0x0, 0x283, 0x282, 0x0)
Error: DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

product: Microsoft? Windows? Operating System

description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: The DPC watchdog detected a prolonged run time at an IRQL of DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This problem might be caused by a thermal issue.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

A:Random BSOD's with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

For starters:





At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

If you haven't run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant yet, please do so. It's free here: Upgrade to Windows 8 - Microsoft Windows



Your BIOS dates from 2011. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

You have 4 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

Please uninstall Gigabyte ET6 (EasyTune6) and Gigabyte Easy Saver. They are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems.

The most common cause of the BSOD's is listed as jraid.sys. Please replace your JMicron drivers with a fresh copy.

Acronis drivers date from as early as 2007 - please ensure that this program is Win8 compatible. The 2008 and earlier drivers are known to cause BSOD's on Windows systems.

Usually every couple of weeks this machine will BSOD with a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION on an unknown module.

If I run heavy disk I/O the crash will happen a little more often but even then it could go days just fine.

Most of the time it crashes when I am away and the machine is largely idle.

I struggle to get dumps until I decided to try writing them to a different drive, so I have one now, but the forum tool doesn't look for it in the non-standard location. It's also a full memory dump (8GB). So it's not attached. If someone can help me capture one for the tool let me know!

Basic analysis from WinDbg on the full dump doesn't seem to help to my untrained eye....? Will post that next.

Hi, I am posting here to see if anyone can help me identify the culprit behind my random BSOD's that seem to spur up at random and happen at least 2-3 times a day. It started this at first on June 3rd. And from how it happens, there doesn't seem to be anything that I do that triggers the BSOD. I could be using any program like Photoshop, to playing a steam game, to browsing the net and then it hits. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated as a re-install of the OS is going to be a very difficult last option for me. I will attach two most recent minidump files.

P.S.: at the time it started happening i can't recall if any updates or installs occurred or not.

Thanks.

Well, this wasn't worth much time here...

Hi,

I've been having random freezes on my pc for the last few weeks. It seems to happen when I'm using multiple applications or a few internet windows. Everything freezes including the mouse and keyboard and I'm stuck staring at whatever it was I was just doing until I manually reboot. I'm not sure if this can be classed as a bsod as I get no blue screen, maybe I just need to wait longer for it to appear.

Anyway I actually did get a bsod after one such freeze and managed to get a dmp this time. Any idea what's causing it as I only got my pc a few months ago and I wasn't happening at first.

Thanks

I do not have an SSD as I have read that this is a main cause of this error, also another thing to do with fast startup which I have turned off. I have updated all of my device drivers and yet it keeps crashing. The crashing is completely random, I could be browsing chrome, or listening to itunes, or playing minecraft, sometimes it will crash so fast after another crash that I can't figure out why it crashed. Attached is the minidump file. Please help me find the cause to this crashing it's upsetting me very much.

I can give you some raw inputs with respect to the crash dump you've attached. Looks like a Process called YCMMirage.exe was trying to do something on the USB Ports.

Do you have a USB device that you can try without and check? Or try to update the driver usb80236.sys

This is my rudimentary analysis, I've seem much more details from Admin, so if this doesn't make sense hang on.

Over the past month I have been getting both DPC Watchdog Violation BSODs and Bad Pool Header BSODs. I think they are related in some way but I have no idea how. Both seem to happen at relatively random times, but I've notice that they happen more often when I'm playing Hearthstone or browsing Chrome. I've tried updated all of my drivers and I've run several memory and disk checks, but nothing has come up thus far. If you have any idea what's causing the BSODs please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I keep getting DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION BSOD's on Windows 8.1 Pro x64. These are my specs:
Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Lenovo Thinkpad e550
Core i7 5500U
8GB RAM
AMD R7 M265
Samsung 840 Evo 256GB

It's a brand new laptop with a fresh install of Windows I got from MSDN so it's got no crap-ware from Lenovo. I have installed all of the drivers needed, downloaded directly from Lenovo's website.

I am not sure whether it's a physical hardware problem, a firmware issue or a driver issue. I have read that with SSD's it's common for old firmware to cause problems but I checked the firmware of the SSD and it's the latest Samsung provides.

Please see these dump files:
http://1drv.ms/1D1blGf
http://1drv.ms/1BE81uQ

Is it possible to determine the exact hardware that's causing the BSOD from the dump files?

Thanks.

Hello all,

I was hoping I might be able to receive some assistance from somebody my technically-minded than me.

I've recently had three crash dumps occur, causing a BSOD.

I've researched the web to find out what might have caused the issue and have used the following program to discover that the issue concerns a:

WhoCrashed

WhoCrashed found the following:

- ntoskrnl.exe (I understand this relates to NT Kernel - I'm not sure what that is.)
- athw8x.sys (This relates to a Qualcomm Atheros Extensible Wireless LAN device driver, but I'm unsure how to update it)

Two dumps point towards to ntoskrnl.exe file, and the one involves the athw8x.sys file.

I'd like to start off by saying that I've had this error since I bought this laptop. Should I have returned it as soon as I realized it crashed randomly? Yes. Did I? No, because I moved out to France just after buying the laptop.
Any who, it's almost one year old, and I decided I might try to solve this by myself since no windows update solved it.
I receive a DPC Watchdog Violation BSOD randomly. I have gotten these BSODs over the past year, and I've gotten pretty used to them. They appear without any pattern. Sometimes when I'm browsing the internet, sometimes when playing games or programming, sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all and most of them when I Skype for an hour or two. I'm pretty certain it crashes during sleep too, as I know I put the computer to sleep during the night time, but when I turn it on in the morning, it boots up from a shut down state.
 I updated all my drivers (the most common reason for this BSOD) but the crashes continued. I keep my drivers up to date anyways out of habit. The biggest problem with this BSOD for me is that no dump file is created or so it says my Dell SupportAssist software. When the BSOD appears, it tells me to wait for some info to be collected, but the percentage hangs at 0% forever.
One of the suggested solutions I found online was simply to reinstall Windows 10 - unfortunately, my computer came with it pre-installed, and I didn't have a CD to reinstall it. I didn't want to l... Read more

Hello. I have been having trouble with my system exhibiting BSODs with the DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION BSOD. There isn't a lot more information than that that I know how to ready, anyway. I have been on a crash course in system diag since this began. I work with O365 and SharePoint development, mostly, and I cannot work when everything freezes and work is lost. I cannot do anything to force it to happen, but I have noticed that IE being open in one of the 4 monitors that are not the primary monitor seems to "bring it on". Outlook and IE seem to be almost certain.
I purchased new matching video cards last week to try and make this behavior go away, but the problem continues. I rebuilt my system with Windows 8.1 from scratch hoping for relief. I seem to get more time between chokes, but it still persists. I am hoping the SF_Diag submission will help you in telling me what your opinion is on something.

Hi TenForums,

I have recently been experiencing DPC_Watchdog_Violations at seemingly random intervals.
It doesn't matter if my computer is idle or in use and there is no specific time when it crashes, sometimes it happens on boot and others it happens after a few hours of use.

I have tried the following:
Manually updating the SATA AHCI driver
Disabling Win auto driver updates
Clean installed GFX drivers
Force Windows to full shutdown instead of quick shut down
Unplugged all attached USB devices and left the PC idle (still crashed)
Used SlimDriver to find and update as many out of date drivers I could
Run a /SFC scannow
Run antivirus/anti malware checks

Attached is the crash dump

Hi, I've been getting random DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION errors. The first thing that will happen is Chrome will usually stop responding. I can still use the computer for a bit (chrome won't open again though). Then, after a few minutes, everything goes downhill and I get the violation error.

Attached are logs after running driver verifier for around 48 hours. I looked through them a bit but nothing caught my eye. As far as I can tell, all my drivers are up-to-date. I also just unplugged and replugged the graphics card, hard drives, etc. again to see if that will help (although I have done this recently and still got this issue afterwards).

Any ideas what might be causing the issue? Thank you!

The first dump has the driver verifier disabled, and is a 0x133.
The second dump has the driver verifier enabled, using this tutorial:

I am at a standstill ever since I recieved this BSOD. At first I thought it was just a random crash and that I would've resolved it later, however it became frequent in just a matter of minutes. Playing a game, browsing the internet, listening to music, anything I do will result in another BSOD only just minutes later. It's completely random too.

This has happened a total of 6 times now and it started happening only just an hour ago. Sometime after the 4th BSOD, I tried getting my crash dump files before it happened, again. Right after the 5th BSOD I managed to obtain and zip my crash files but I couldn't even type in anything on the forum post before it happened yet again. If I leave my laptop idle or use applications that take a minimal amount of CPU/memory usage, everything remains normal. By minimal, I mean something like Notepad or Hamachi (I'm writing this on Notepad, before I copied it into the forum post).
Assuming it had something to do with the power options and Windows 8 Low Power Management system, I turned off the "Turn on quick startup" option hoping it would fix the issue. Unfortunately, it didn't. Now I'm just assuming it's either an application I installed; considering I didn't install anything onto my computer recently and the last time I installed an application was about a month ago, or it had something to do with the drivers.
I'd like do something about this as well to try and pinpoint the exact problem but I don't want to make any moves... Read more

Hi,

I've been getting hard locks where the audio continues to work while everything else becomes unresponsive that eventually degenerate into a BSOD with a DPC_Watchdog_Violation.

Having looked at some of the events, I think it's probably some kind of SSD driver issue but I wanted to see if there were any other opinions here.

I've already tried manually updating the SSD/Audio/Network drivers and haven't had any success with that. I've flashed my SSD to the latest firmware version and that hasn't helped (the latest version is from april... so maybe I'm just screwed on that front). Windows is installed on the SSD and I've tried several fresh installs of win 8.1 Enterprise and the problem persists through installations.

Your BIOS dates from 2011. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

Only 53 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 66 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

D: drive only has about 3% free space (other drives also have less than 15% free space). Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).





Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): [S] DuplexSecure - FAQ [/S] Link broken as of 21 Jul 2012

Hey everyone.

I have a BSoD Problem. i'm getting this DPC_Watchdog_Violation randomly. I have windows 8 installed on this computer (new computer by the way.)
I'm not sure what could be causing this. I thought it might be the graphics so I reinstalled the graphics and the computer would just crash.
Also, the crash disabled either the drivers or something related to my graphics card so that it can't be accessed. However, i'm still running on it which I find kind of odd. I can't access it as in when I right click the desktop, it should have the option "Graphics Option" etc. Also, the resolution right now is 1280 x 1024 when it should be filling the whole screen up. I'm not sure what's going on, or what to do. In addition, i've read many other threads before talking about anti-viruses causing this problem; I don't have an antivirus program installed on my computer, as I just installed windows 8 on this and it's fairly new.

The specs to my computer are custom made so here they are:
ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA Motherboard
Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge LGA Quad Core Processor
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB RAM
CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 PSU
ASUS VS Series VS238H-P 23" HDMI LED Screen
OCZ Vertex 4 SSD
Seagate Barracuda ST3000DM001 HDD
GeForce GTX570 Graphics
H80 Water Cooler

The minidump files are attached.
If you need anything else, please ask.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:





There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a proble... Read more

I've been getting BSODs lately with the error dpc_watchdog_violation at random instances while using my computer. I'm not a windows expert but I did some looking around and managed to look at the memory.dmp and minidump files related to the BSOD; the minidump seemed to point to athwnx.sys as the culprit, which is apparently related to a driver for my wireless network card. I went to device manager to try and update it, but it said it was already updated, so now I'm kinda stuck on how to proceed.
Computer build is here, running windows 10.

Would really appreciate any help, it's been pretty frustrating trying to figure this out since again I'm not too versed in this sort of thing.

EDIT: I've noticed that my build I linked doesn't actually include my wireless network card, I'm not sure why it isn't there. Hopefully since I already know the relevant driver it's not an issue.

So, I see this BSOD everyday. The error reads "DPC_Watchdog_Violation"

I've used Bluescreen Viewer to look at the mini-dump files for the answers and found the bug check code to be 0x00000133 and the driver to be hal.dll (Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL). I haven't made any hardware changes in months. This has happened before and went away for a few months and now it's happening again.
All the info the SF Diagnostics Tool gathered is attached.

I'm new to this forum and help would be appreciated. I'm in college right, so I can check back pretty often.

hey, just bought a new computer and decided to install windows 8. i have installed all the drivers that came with my new computer .
the problem is that every while im getting the dpc_watchdog_violation bsod.

added the dump file, hope the you can help me .

A:dpc_watchdog_violation bsod .

BSOD caused by tcpip.sys. Your tcpip.sys driver is corrupted. If you open DriverList.txt, you'll see a line Tcpip contains unrecognizable characters along with some other drivers.

Open elevated command prompt and type: sfc /scannow to see if it fixes the problem. You might have to run this command multiple times until you get a message: Windows did not find any integrity violation.

Once the above is finished, open elevated command again and run: chkdsk c: /r /f

Please report back.

This has been happening from when I was using Windows 7.
Whenever I use Google Chrome, the computer would freeze randomly and I had to force reboot (when I was using Windows 7). Now, as I've upgraded to Windows 8 yesterday, when that happens (which was today), it shows me a BSOD with the statement saying DPC_watchdog_violation. I've attached the dump file zip. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Each BSOD gives a clue as to the cause. You have given us only one, so we have only one clue. You may want to update this driver as it was given as the cause of your problems.

I've read some other reports that this is related to an Anti Virus conflict.
If you are running any AV, you may want to temporarily disable it to see if that's causing the issue.
