    Blue screen error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION when waking from sleep


    So I just reinstalled Windows 10 a few days ago, since Windows crashed with a different BSOD, and now having this problem. It doesn't always do it when waking from sleep, but it has done it twice so far. It never did this on the other Windows 10 install before. One thing is that when I was reinstalling all my programs and then afterwards put my computer in sleep, it wouldn't wake from it! When I rebooted it, the desktop kept flashing, like Windows Explorer kept crashing, and a reboot wouldn't even fix it! I had to run a System Restore, which fixed that. So now half the time, my computer doesn't even wake from sleep, which it didn't really before on the other Windows 10 install. However I never used to get BSOD's waking from sleep, until now! If you guys can help, that would be great. Thanks!

    Also the BSOD is always yellow for some weird reason when waking from sleep, is very dim, and in the middle of the screen! See pic below.

    I looked and I don't even have the same driver that it is mentioning. So obviously that isn't the problem. See pic.

    Ok here is what it says when I go to the properties. It won't go to the driver details as there isn't a driver installed for it.

    Try installing the HP 3D Drive Guard software.

    It would be available for download from the HP website. As per the HP webpage here is what is says there:
    HP 3D DriveGuard protects your hard drive against rough handling, excessive vibration, and other everyday wear and tear; so when an accident happens, you can go on working. It relies on a three-axis digital accelerometer that acts as a motion sensor, which notifies the system software of any sudden movement and sends a command to temporarily park the hard drive, protecting your critical data from impacts, bumps and minor drops.

    Ok I tried installing it and it wasn't compatible with my computer.
