    DPC Watchdog Violation BSOD

    This weekend I had an issue with the computer and after a while traced it to the RAM being either not seated properly or too dusty. Cleaned it, reseated it. We seem to be good, but GPU was acting wonky, so redownloaded driver from Manufacturer and updated it. All seems good.

    Since then have has BSOD with DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION

    Ran scannow but got no issues.

    BlueScreenView is telling me it is coming from ntoskrnl.exe, hal.dll, and nvstor.sys

    Hi tqmshirt,

    Please check ASUS for BIOS updates, please choose a stable update.

    The Nvidia storage controller driver look to be causing issues, but I can't find any driver updates on the support page of ASUS. Let's hope a BIOS update will do the job

    Please fill in your system specs
    Please follow this tutorial and download the tool. The tool will give you detailed information about your system specs, please fill in your system specs more completely including PSU, cooling and other used stuff like mouse, keyboard, monitor, case, etc.
