    Bsod dpc_watchdog violation


    It's been less than 2 days since I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and I already got hit by this BSOD twice.
    I searched on the web for solution and everything that I found is related to drivers outdated but I'm certain that all my drivers are updated. Can anyone help me solve this please?

    I went to that website and I couldn't find anything to update my driver. Is this website reliable and trust worthy to download the driver?

    Yeah that should be fine, that Qualcomm site is a nightmare to navigate isn't it? Let us know how you go.

    Just tell me one more thing, should I download the Windows 7 or Windows 8 driver? There's no Windows 10 driver currently available and I'm unsure which one should I download. Previously I was on Windows 7 so that one would be recommended right?

    Personally I'd try the 8 version, you can always uninstall and try the 7 version if that one doesn't play nice.
