    DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION in games


    Twice now in the past week have I had an DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION blue screen related to ntoskrnl.exe and hal.dll, both while playing games.

    Any ideas as to why would be much appreciated.

    Running Windows 8 Pro on an SSD with latest firmware.

    I had this message come up a few times. Along with another message sometimes. I don't remember what it was. Then win8 pro started not booting then repairing, then not booting. Over and over. I tried reinstalling win8 pro also and it would crash. After checking memory, hard drives, and cpu and all found to be good. Got a used motherboard off of ebay. Working perfect now.

    My usb ports were a leading indicator of the trouble to come. Usb keyboard would not respond sometimes. The only way to get my keyboard back was to switch ports.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    Update your Video Driver for GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Make sure you disable any anti virus software when update your driver.
