Windows 10: Multiple Bluescreens (DPC_WATCHDOG, VIDEO_TDR) after upgrade

    Attaching the new dump I just got, as it's a DPC_WATCHDOG instead of a VIDEO_TDR, according to whocrashed, but still points at the nvidia driver. Figure it might make more sense to someone here.

    FYI, the VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE means that the drivers weren't responding anymore and windows tries to get them working again. But the timeout is getting too much so the bugcheck is called to prevent any damage that may occur due to this problem.

    Cause is the Nvidia Video driver.

    Right, I do get what a VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE implies, I just wasn't sure if the newer DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION I got could possibly be related somehow, noting that it was a very specific thing (Moving large files across hard drives) that caused it, since it also claimed to be caused by the nvidia driver.

    Furmark didn't seem to cause any artifacts so I don't think it's the video card itself.

    I decided to run memtest again (Cus I'm a sucker for punishment) and it froze during the test; everything stopped but the + blinking (which I know happens automatically even if your CPU is on fire). Is memtest freezing akin to a failure or does it mean something else entirely is wrong?

    It might be due to some things that have to do with the memory.

    Please download and install Speccy.
    When you have installed and opened Speccy, click on RAM and click SPD -> Slot #1 (every slot) -> Timing table, please make a screenshot of it and post it
    It looks like

    Please try the following:
    • Shut down your computer
    • Once the computer is turned off, unplug all power sources (AC Adapter then Battery)
    • Hold down the power button for 30 seconds
    • Plug power sources back in (Battery then AC Adapter)
    • Turn your computer back on

    This will reset your software connections between the BIOS and hardware, and it will also clear any memory corruption in the temporary memory (disregard the battery statements if you are using a desktop and not a laptop).

    Please try MemTest86+ again when you've done this.

    Alright, running that now (posting from laptop). I'll keep you updated, probably later tonight when it finishes 8 passes, or sooner if it still fails.

    Looks really like driver problems
