    Intermiitent crash with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION


    Hi,

    Hoping somebody can help me here. I've having this issue for a couple of months now (pretty soon after I installed Windows 8). I can often go for over a week without an issue, and then it happens multiple times in one day. I read this morning that a possible solution is to update the firmware on any SSDs. I did that this morning on my Samsung 840 pro, but have just had it happen again.

    I have attached the diagnostic tool crash dump extract, and am really hoping somebody can help me as this is driving me nuts.

    Thanks,

    David

    most BSODs list Xeno7x64.sys as the probable cause.

    Find an update for the Killer Xeno Gaming Adapter driver or remove the device.

    Thanks,

    I've been on their website and downloaded and run their cleaning tool. I've also installed their Windows 8 64bit driver. Hoping this solves the issue.
