    Random DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (logs attached)


    Hi, I've been getting random DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION errors. The first thing that will happen is Chrome will usually stop responding. I can still use the computer for a bit (chrome won't open again though). Then, after a few minutes, everything goes downhill and I get the violation error.

    Attached are logs after running driver verifier for around 48 hours. I looked through them a bit but nothing caught my eye. As far as I can tell, all my drivers are up-to-date. I also just unplugged and replugged the graphics card, hard drives, etc. again to see if that will help (although I have done this recently and still got this issue afterwards).

    Any ideas what might be causing the issue? Thank you!

    Please follow the below steps, one step at a time :-



    1. As we can see that in your most recent Dump file, the "rtwlanu.sys" is the culprit which is related to your "Realtek RTLxxxxx Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter". Please update this driver. Check if you are getting BSOD's if you remove this device. An installable PCI Wireless Card is much more reliable and robust IMO.
    2. Please update your "TAP-Win32 Adapter V9 or OpenVPN driver or COMODO" as well.


    Let me know how it goes ^_^.
