Windows 10: DPC Watchdog BSOD Windows 10 1607
What I did is as described above made a schedule to reboot PC 3am every day & so far been ok but still had 1 or 2 occasional crashes before 3am but seems to help a bit. I noticed if I am in youtube watching videos it can crash by hearing sound messing up also. Seems this is a problem on Asus based motherboards using this nvidia SATA driver & HP & Dell machines.
Whilst that would help prevent further corruption (the last two days after the crashes the PC hasn't even reached Windows again without a manual reset of the power) it sadly doesn't help me out much since the PC in question runs home security systems and TeamSpeak servers, all of which require sign-in and manual activation.
I think I'm going to look at rolling back to the previous version and using a regedit to disable Windows Update until I see this problem as having been fixed as it's driving me insane. Really disappointed with their handling of this issue.
Just found a suggested 'fix' in another thread here, second last post. I've gone through and switched all relevant drivers on the PC suffering from this and will see how it goes in just over 24 hours. One last attempt haha.
I tried that & it will install the nForce again & ask you to reboot. This is what I see in my device manager now check to see if it's the same. That other link had something to do with ATI graphics card also but this is a SATA controller issue.
Yeah I noticed they were also talking about graphics in that thread but the guy in the post I was referring to seemed to solely be talking about the SATA controller which is the issue I'm having, same as yourself.
I had the same NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller references (three times for me) under storage controllers on the affected PC. I changed their drivers to the Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller version and they now show under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and thus far haven't attempted to update themselves to the nVidia driver again. I'll let you know once the 24 hour mark has passed as to whether it has any success in averting the crash.
Well I've just gone in and checked and found this in the task manager.
It's the first time since the 1607 update that the PC has passed approximately 24 hours and 15 minutes without crashing.
Well after playing around I managed to get it this way also by selecting manual install driver & saw it on list & had to do it 2x since my nForce was listed twice & rebooted. It seems stable & speed same, but we will see if this works & can always system restore back if not. I also did this to my other Dell machines & so far no crash but only 9 hrs. Will update you also after 36 hours.
Here what it looks like now in my device manager.

Yeah that's pretty much the same as how mine looks now after changing the drivers manually. My affected PC has now passed 50 hours up time. Will keep my fingers crossed you have similar results.
So far no crash but noticed on 3 machines degraded performance freezing up at times while surfing the web etc. I am going to wait few more days if continues I will revert these machines back with the other driver till Microsoft & Nvidia makes a fix. On this machine so far good over a day no crash.
Well that's good you've had no crashes at least. Hopefully Microsoft/Nvidia will get around to fixing the issue in the near future though at least for now it's nice not having to worry about the constant crashes.
So this Laptop freezes and hard reboots, the BSODs occur after the hard reboots wondering if you can discern any potential causes from the following zip.
I'm receiving this BSOD periodically
unfortunately I can't tell that I'm doing something particular to get it and it seems random.
so I'm attaching logs and dumps hoping someone can help me.
i know the reason of MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSODs...
Hi everyone! This is my first post here. My computer has been fine until I updated it to windows 10 from win 8. I have been getting Watchdog violations randomly every 30 min to 3 hours since the update. One error report analyzed via WhoCrashed...

Every 10 minutes or so, around when it would go to rest, machine crashes with DPC Watchdog Violation
