    BSOD (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION) when playing games

    Hi guys,

    After spending more than 3 days unsuccessfully trying to resolve this problem, I am completely frustrated and need some help.

    I have a Laptop ASUS N550JK, with the following specs:

    Intel Core i7 4700H
    16 GB RAM
    Graphic cards: Intel 4600 and Nvidia GTX 850M.
    SSD Samsung EVO 250 GB
    Windows 8.1 x64 Professional

    Basically, if I try to play any game (League of Legends, Counter Strike GO, Just Cause 2, etc) using my NVIDIA card, after some seconds the Windows freezes completely and I get a BSOD with the message DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION. If I remove the driver, and play these games using the Intel card, everything goes well.

    I already tried the following solutions, but without success

    * Did fresh install of Windows 7, 8, and 8.1.
    * Installed the Intel/ NVIDIA drivers from the Asus website; install the video drivers from the Intel and NVIDIA's websites, install old drivers.

    I also did a DDU of these drivers, no difference.

    * Removed all antivirus software, unnecessary softwares, etc.
    * Updated the BIOS.
    * Replaced the SSD by other HDD and did fresh install of Windows, drivers, etc.
    * Tried to keep only one RAM stick, both, etc. Also ran memtest86 and no errors were found.
    * Tried to run the "driver verified" and it did not get any error until I run and game and break the system.

    Curiously, I ran some gpu stress tests (OCCT, vmt, memtestCL) and I did not get any error.

    Does anyone have any thought about why this problem is happening? What should I do?

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Hi RockSide & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    Really sorry for the delay. Sadly, there are not many analysts
    Do you still need help with this problem? If yes, then kindly reply to this thread and I will be notified via email and reply within 48 hours.

    According to the screenshots, it seems like either your processor or the Graphics card (Most Likely) is over heating.
