    Bluescreen Hell


    I have freshly installed Windows 8 after an annoying night of recovery loop. Now my computer is running extremely slow taking maybe 5 minutes before I can get a login, the problem doesn't end there I constantly get a blue screen screen then it will keep resetting and getting bluescreens before I can even login for like 30 minutes. When it turns on the error says Files that will be sent to Microsoft

    C:\Windows\Minidump\111112-84178-01.dmp
    C:\Users\Jason\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-99528-0.sysdata.xml
    C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP

    And the bluescreen error that comes up most of the time read DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

    more than likely a driver issue or third-party anti-virus issue, make sure all your drivers are compatible with windows 8, turn off any third-party anti-virus and see if that helps, if not try doing a clean reinstall of windows 8

    This is a clean install due to recovery loop. Had to wipe my drive now my computer takes forever to load Windows, I haven't even installed my programs yet, but I'm being plagued with bluescreens and auto restart loops until it finally allows me to login

    One member switched his SSD back to a different one and it worked in this thread, if you have spare HDD worth a try.

    Press the Windows key and the pause/break key to bring up the system screen. Then on the left click the Advanced System Settings. In the box that pops up go to the advanced tab and go to the startup and recovery settings. Then finally uncheck the box next to "automatically reboot" in system failure. Now when you get a blue screen you should be able to see the error message and write it down.
