    BSOD Dpc_Watchdog_Error - New computer


    HI, I have a brand new custom made computer from Cyberpower PC. I have a fresh Windows 8.1 install and haven't installed anything yet. The computer will either freeze, not load windows or give me a BSOD watchdog error. Tried updating windows, drivers and reinstalling everything. No good. I also have a Geforce 970 GPU and it wont run any games right now .Super slow after installing and reinstalling updated drivers for the card. Need help please. Upload my zip file below. Thanks!

    Your dump file appears to be corrupted. Please upload a fresh zipped file. Also, update your Windows.
    There is a problem with your GPU:
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_13C2&SUBSYS_31601462&REV_A1\4&D79619E&0&0008 43

    Looks like it was the GPU, I replaced it with an older one and now it seems to run fine. Sending the new one back. Thank you!!!

BSOD when computer not in use in BSOD Crashes and Debugging
