    BSOD due to DPC_watchdog_violation


    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.

    Thanks,

    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.

    Thank you for the quick reply. I have only had one BSOD related to this crash so far since I just upgraded to Windows 8 yesterday (When I was using Windows 7, there was no BSOD - my laptop just froze and I had to force reboot). When I checked for the latest driver for the driver above, however, I found that I do have the latest driver installed. Could there be any other reasons for the BSOD?

    Based upon problems from other members, it my opinion and just an opinion, various drivers are not quite ready for 8.
    Similar to the problem with Vista.
