    BSOD DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION after watching/playing anythin

    So lately my computer gives me a BSOD when I
    • try to run a video chat
    • play games
    • watch videos
    • play browser games

    Over the course of the past week I cannot figure out any sort of set circumstances other than Video will normally set it off. It started, I thought maybe my ancient video card was kicking the bucket and I put in a new card, no change. This happens several times a day at this point, rendering this computer pretty useless.

    The error the BSOD gives me is DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION which seems to be the most generic error Win 8.1 has.

    Update your SB Audigy driver:
    fffff801`62698000 fffff801`62817000 P17 Tue Apr 21 08:12:47 2009 (49ED63DF)

    Although they didn't cause the problem, these drivers are a bit old:

    haha, I updated the sbaudigy drivers, and it crashed again within a minute of it rebooting after install. I'm going to update the other two but I've gone ahead and uploaded a new zip from the most recent crash.

    Thanks for your help though, seriously!

    windows 8.1

    The latest Dumpfile also blames Probably caused by : P17.sys ( P17+2faba )
    This is the driver for your Soundblaster audigy LS
    Your model is probably what Creative calls a discontinued product.
    What means that they not longer update this driver. And it is probably not compatible with windows 8.1.
    Sadly i suspect you have to remove this device.

    Her is a link to Creative products with windows 8/8.1 drivers Creative Worldwide Support
