    DPC_Watchdog_Violation BSoD / ntoskrln.exe


    Hello Community,

    For two months now I am having a BSoD problem, because my PC system keeps freezing randomly. 2 weeks ago, I bought a new PC and I still got the same issue, giving me a BSoD. I downloaded a dump file analyser software and it told me that the DPC_Watchdog_Violation is the cause for my crashes and that is was probably caused by the module: ntoskrnl.exe. I am really helpless and really want to know how I can fix the problem. The freezes are completely random, sometimes there are two weeks without freezing and sometimes it's freezing every minute after rebooting my PC. But that my new PC has the exact same issue than my old one really confuses me. Thnks for any advice in common.

    Edit: Can't upload my dump files, it keeps saying invalid file

    Files must be zipped. Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    If you still can't upload it, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and put a link to it here.

    These are user mode dump files - they are not the dump files created during the BSOD event.

    I'm sorry for that. I hope it will work now.

    The memory dumps blame Rt630x64.sys - a driver for your ethernet card.
    Please:
    - download a fresh copy of the latest Win8 compatible drivers from here: Realtek
    - uninstall the current network drivers
    - install the freshly downloaded drivers
    - monitor for further BSOD's

    You have Norton and Avast installed (you may have removed Norton and installed Avast in it's place - if so, disregard this paragraph). Please uninstall both, then enable Windows Defender and the Windows Firewall.
    Then test for further BSOD's
    If you'd like to reinstall Norton or Avast (NOT both) feel free to do so after the system has become stable
    FYI - Never use more than one anti-virus or one firewall at a time.

    Please update the Intel Management Engine.
    Try these links:
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...ngine&lang=eng
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...ngine&lang=eng
    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...ngine&lang=eng

    If that doesn't work, then try the Lenovo links in this Google search: https://www.google.com/search?q=inte...ient=firefox-a

    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! :

    Thank you for the reply.
    I installed as much as i could but i got problems with the second link of the intel manegement engine.
    There will always occur a error message that is saying: "atleast one application process doesnt work so the setup will close automatically" (or something like this). The third one is working though (is that enough?).
    I removed all my cyberlink programs and installed the new ethernet driver from realtek.
    Do you have any suggestions because of the second link?
    But thank you very much for the analysis so far!

    Don't worry about the second link - you only need one of them installed.
    Now we wait to see if the BSOD's have stopped......

    I didnt have any BsoD yet. I hope it will stay like this
    But that the network controller driver seems to be the problem makes sense for me, because i always had the freezes when i was loading on skype, google or video streams.
