    BSOD when Blackberry Z10 connected.

    I have a Blackberry Z10 and Blackberry Link installed on my laptop. When I connect my phone to the laptop, after a couple of minutes it just crashes and a blue screen appears saying " your system has ran into some trouble, please search through the internet for information about DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION".
    This has happened like half a dozen times within an hour, with the phone connected. Once removed, it's alright.
    What is the actual reason for this?
    Can I get this problem set?

    While the Blackberry Z10 smartphone is connected to BlackBerry Link via USB on a computer running Windows 8 Pro, Windows crashes with the following error:
    Your PC ran into a problem that it couldn't handle, and now it needs to restart.
    You can search for the error online: DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION


    There is an issue with the Microsoft RNDIS drivers causing a conflict issue. This has been reported to Microsoft Support in order to have a fix put in place.


    This is a previously reported issue that is being investigated by both Microsoft's development team and our development team. No resolution time frame is currently available.

    Maybe you can search on the blackberry supportforum if there is already a workaround or fix.
