    BSOD playing Hearthstone, DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION


    I've been having many BSODs while playing Hearthstone. It firstly freezes then the BSOD screen exists. I updated my graphic card driver and others, but didn't change anything. It's usually DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION and minidump files indicate ntoskrnl.exe .

    Any help would be appreciated.
