    BSOD DPC_Watchdog_Violation (Only boots in safemode)

    Firstly I initially got the DPC_Watchdog_Violation a few months ago. My computer restarted fine, paid no mind to it. As of recent, it started occurring more frequently. Yesterday I decided I'd let Win 8 try to auto repair the problem. Now, I am only able to boot into safe mode. A few other errors have been popping up with the BSOD. Among them are :


    I ran Whocrashed and came up with this:

    This was probably caused by the following module: ntfs.sys (Ntfs+0x119ED0)
    Bugcheck code: 0xC5 (0xFFFFFA0001590770, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF8010D488CF0)

    I've been at this for about 10 hours straight and my brain is fried trying to come up with a solution. If any of you could check this out for me I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Please upload the dump files themselves. From your post I could suggest running SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - Windows 7 Help Forums and checkdisk.

    I hope me linking is fine on here. My memory.dmp is too large to upload via here. I can't seem to get a minidump to work even though I'm changing the directory from my ssd to my other drive. Or a new memorydump for that matter even though I'm getting nothing but bsod and repair cycle when I restart.

    I can't seem to find any actual driver links for those Marvell drivers. I uninstalled daemon tools and see no sign of dtscsibus.sys. I've updated the realtek driver but got an error 0xc0000374 while doing so. Going to start off with uninstalling realtek and restarting.

    Ok, I got the realtek driver to update fine. The Marvell drivers are related to my MoBo. I don't believe any updates for them exist. So I just uninstalled and re-installed them via my MoBo dvd. The BSOD DPC_watchdog still persist upon restarting.

    upload a fresh dump then. Check if your settings are configured like this: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD - Windows 7 Help Forums

    I have it configured like that. I even used the complete memory dump reg. It doesn't seem to want to create a dump when I restart, regardless of the bsod occurring .
