    BSOD while changing WiFi networks, DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION


    As the title says, I got a BSOD for the first time (since I had a bad memory module) during a casual WiFi network change. I am willing to add more details to this thread if required. I have attached the output of SF Debug Tool after removing personal identifiable information.

    Hi Sabrefresco ^_^,

    Unfortunately, the ZIP File uploaded by you does not contain any Dump files for us to analyse

    You would have to upload them manually. The Dump files are located in the path "C:\Windows\Minidumps\". Make sure you ZIP up all the dump files in the folder and then upload the ZIP File in your next post as an attachment.
    You might need to copy the dump files to some other folder before you could ZIP them up due to permission issues.

    Let me know how it goes ^_^.

    Your BSoD is caused by Intel WiFi driver. Please update those and report back.

    I did not BSOD since the last one (the one I posted about). Nevertheless, I updated my driver last night. Will report back with if I BSOD again. I will mark this thread as solved after 7 days.
