    DPC Watchdog Violation BSOD


    On Sun 9/29/2013 6:56:45 PM GMT your computer crashed
    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\092913-8250-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x5A440)
    Bugcheck code: 0x133 (0x0, 0x501, 0x500, 0x0)
    Error: DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
    file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: NT Kernel & System
    Bug check description: The DPC watchdog detected a prolonged run time at an IRQL of DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This problem might be caused by a thermal issue.
    The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

    This is from WhoCrashed. However I do not really understand what driver or program is causing the problem here. BSDO is happening every few minutes. Minidump is attached as per instruction. Any help is appreciated!

    Both your BSOD's from the dump files attached were caused by usb80236.sys.
    Do you have any USB hub attached to your PC and have your Blackberry connected ?
    Please update this driver.
