    Fallout 76 + Discord attempted_switch_from_DPC

    I was playing Fallout 76 with a friend using discord over the built-in voice chat. The in-game chat was set to none in the game settings. I was in the leveling menu talking about game mechanics while my friend was talking at the same time. So in discord there was output and input at the same time. Windows went right to a BSoD in mid sentence with the error in the thread title.

    The last BSoD I can remember was similar with me chatting and receiving at the same time using discord in World of Warcraft in Sept 2017. This was the thread I made about it but the fixes are not applicable from what I can see. BSOD ATTEMPTED_ SWITCH_FROM_DPC FF14, WoW - Windows 10 Forums

    My use of discord is not heavy. Maybe a few hours a week if that over the last year.

    there is a problem with the SteelSeries Softare or driver:

    0x100000B8:     (2018-11-18 23:14:55) [Windows 10] 
    CAUSED BY:     sshid.sys [2018-06-26] * SteelSeries Engine HID Driver * => https://steelseries.com/downloads  
    PROCESS:       Fallout76.exe

    Run IObit Uninstaller (YT) to uninstall this software completely without leftover files.

    After uninstalling reinstall the SteelSeries Software and see how it goes

    Thanks for the info and instruction link. I will do as you instruct and report back after some testing. Testing will take some time with the week rolling over so my time is more limited than on a weekend.
