    BSOD DPC Watchdog Violation?


    Hi, i've made a post here a couple days ago, and i found this forum to be very helpful

    After my previous BSOD was fixed (thanks to user Usasma), everything ran fine until today. I was only watching YouTube, nothing unusual, all of a sudden everything froze and a BSOD came up which read "DPC_Watchdog_violation". This is the first time i've gotten this BSOD, and i hope it's not a reoccuring thing. As always, please give some input in this problem. I appreciate all of your help, thanks

    I've asked to have this topic merged with your previous topic here: BSOD IRQL not less or equal. Random BSOD crashes?

    It's best to keep the posts together in order to see if any patterns emerge. I don't figure a problem is solved for at least 2 weeks after (but I usually give it a month).

    I have posted my reply over in that topic.

    Good luck!

    I asked to have your other post merged with this one ( https://www.eightforums.com/bsod-cras...tml#post209264 )

    While waiting, here's the BSOD analysis that I did on it.....

    If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized. If you resume the overclock, please do it in stages - gradually increasing the overclock until errors appear. Then back it off a couple of steps to see if it remains stable there.

    Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
    Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): [S] DuplexSecure - FAQ [/S] Link broken as of 21 Jul 2012
    New link (15 Aug 2012): DuplexSecure - Downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).
    Alternate link: Disc-Tools.com

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :
