    Random BSOD DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION on Win 8.1


    I've installed Windows 8 last year in January 2013. It was working without any problems until they released the update to Windows 8.1. Ever since I updated my Windows 8 to 8.1. I have been having the same BSOD. I've tried updating my graphics drivers and looked for new driver for my motherboard but there is no up to date drivers for my motherboard that supports Windows 8.1. However I have updated my graphics drivers to the latest one 335.23 but still no success.

    Hope somebody here can help me with my problem because everything was working fine before the update to Windows 8.1

    Cheers,

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Your BIOS dates from 2010. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

    As there are no drivers for 8.1 at the motherboard site, I have to wonder if this board is compatible w/Win8.1 If this is the case you may have to downgrade to 8 or even 7 in order to achieve stability.

    F: drive only has about 9% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

    You have 3 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

    This device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?
    HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS95 SCSI CdRom Device SCSI\CDROM&VEN_HL-DT-ST&PROD_DVDRAM_GH24NS95\4&37CB8AFC&0&010100 This device is disabled.

    The memory dump blames your video drivers, please uninstall them and then install a freshly downloaded copy. If that doesn't help, then please try these hardware diagnostics (starting with the video tests): Hardware Diagnostics


    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! For the nVidia drivers you'll have to try getting chipset drivers from the nVidia website :
