    BSOD DPC Watchdog Violation Windows Kernel Fail


    Background: DPC_Watchdog_Violation -- Going crazy! : Windows10
    See comment thread in link for fix already attempted.


    Every 10 minutes or so, around when it would go to rest, machine crashes with DPC Watchdog Violation
    Have had this problem through Win 8, 10 technical preview, and 10
    AMD Drivers were way out of date so I updated, but now it crashes with the following:

    On Tue 8/18/2015 4:04:44 PM GMT your computer crashed crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\081815-29906-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x14DD00)
    Bugcheck code: 0x133 (0x1, 0x1E00, 0x0, 0x0)
    Error: DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
    file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation description: NT Kernel & System Bug check
    description: The DPC watchdog detected a prolonged run time at an IRQL of DISPATCH_LEVEL or above. This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This problem might be caused by a thermal issue. The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time.

    See attachment for dmp files, dxdiag.

    I am running Win 10 Pro 64-bit, build 10240
    Motherboard GA-970A-UD3
    Processor AMD FX(tm)-4170
    Memory 6144MB DDR3 RAM
    Video NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

    Also, not sure if relevant, but I use wubi to dual boot Ubuntu.

    There are a lot of missing files in your upload, in fact it's all dumps and no other necessary info, try running this again,

    BSOD - Posting Instructions - Windows 10 Forums

    Reading your reddit and the above you mention updating the driver but the 2009 version still shows in your latest dump.

    Have you tried installing the Chipset drivers for your motherboard? There are W8.1 drivers here,

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-970A-UD3 (rev. 1.0/1.1)

    Will do this asap and report. Thank you!

    Alright, I updated the chipset with the utility you linked me to, waited until the error occurred a couple more times, ran the BSOD Posting Instructions utility again (this time letting it finish, sorry) and am attaching the zipped file.

    This is a bit more involved, but let's try a couple things,

    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    CHKDSK - Check a Drive for Errors in Windows 8

    Code:
    BugCheck 133, {1, 1e00, 0, 0}
    
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for amdsata.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for amdsata.sys
    Probably caused by : amdsata.sys ( amdsata+6f90 )
    
    
    Followup: MachineOwner
    ---------
    That (1) I highlighted above indicates there are conflicts with more than one drivers,

    I am getting these two below,

    Code:
    Unable to load image \SystemRoot\System32\drivers\rt640x64.sys, Win32 error 0n2
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for rt640x64.sys

    That is your Realtek Lan driver, I see a newer version for W10 at your Motherboard site,

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-970A-UD3 (rev. 1.0/1.1)


    Code:
    Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2

    That is your video driver, but lets leave that be for now until you try the newer Realtek driver, if you continue to get them try an earlier driver.

    I have done the following:

    - Ran the SFC Command, no problems found but couldn't run exactly as suggested, see results attached, let me know how I might run it again if necessary
    - Ran checkdsk, no problems found

    -Installed W10 Realtek LAN driver, rebooted, reproduced BSOD
    -Installed W8.1 Realtek LAN driver, rebooted, reproduced BSOD
    -Installed W10 Realtek LAN driver again, rebooted, reproduced BSOD

    -Ran dm log collector again, results attached

    Until @derekimo returns I'll try to help you as far as possible.

    Please use the tool again and upload the zip file, for up to date information about your system and possibly new BSOD's.

    50 bluescreens in 2 days, is that correct?

    My analyse is almost the same as derekimo's analyse.
    For the Realtek driver, try removing the Realtek driver and then install it, sometimes uninstalling and installing solves the issue.

    Check Nvidia for driver updates.

    Sadly, it is correct. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. I will inform you if I continue having problems.
