    BSOD when playing games

    Hi, I'm getting a DPC Watchdog Violation error when playing DOTA 2, as well as this it also crashes and BSODs on Kerbal Space Program, I used to get infrequent BSODs related to nvlddmkm.sys error but now this happens at the beginning of every game making it completely unplayable, if you need any more details I'll be happy to provide them, thanks.

    EDIT: Tested many games, the graphics crashes within 5 minutes of opening the games, then there is a 30 second delay before it goes to BSOD

    Hi DoctorFlash,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    nvlddmkm.sys is the Nvidia Video driver.
    Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

    Please try updating your BIOS.

    Let me know how it goes :)

    I've removed and reinstalled the nvidia driver as you said to but I cant update my motherboard because I get a "This app can't run on your PC" error when I try to run the update .exe file Sorry for the late reply, I've been away

    The executable is unblocked?
    Right click > properties to check this.

    Yes it was, I've managed to update my BIOS to the latest stable update though by doing it using a USB stick, I'll let you know if my problem persists, thanks :)

    It hasn't worked :-( I got much longer before it crashed but I switched from DoTA 2 to Kerbal Space Program and boom, within 5 minutes it crashed.

    When you get another bluescreen, just upload the zip from dm log collector and give some description. Now you have already given a description so it this time isn't needed.
