    Recurent WATCHDOG error when streaming


    Over the last few days, this has happened repeatedly (almost at the exact same seconds of the stream)

    After checking similar threads in the forum, I updated both of my SSD's firmware to the latest version as well as my Video card drivers = no luck

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Now it's no longer just while browsing websites that have a lot of flash components, I would get BSOD while downloading a Java update.....

    REALLY frustrating...

    I used a tool called slimdrivers to update all of my drivers to a new version as per Tobias's recommendation, but it didn't seem to do me any good... (although the errors are sometime watchdog_violation and sometimes IRQL_driver_...)

    Attaching the new logs.

    any clues ?

    It appears that it's almost always when I'm streaming content (regardless of the browser used)

    could it be flash related ?

    happened again today, WATCH_DOG twice the IRDQL less or equal...

    almost makes me wishes I remained on Win 7...

    Solved. it wasn't the SSD. It was the NIC that was at fault (oddly enough, ONLY when streaming)

    Seems like Atheros 8131 drivers aren't there yet as far as Win 8 is concerned.

    Spot on. Thanks Tobias
