Windows 10: BSOD DPC Watchdog Violation while gaming

    BSOD DPC Watchdog Violation while gaming

    While gaming I constantly get those "cuts" that last about 0,5 sec, during which time I can perform no actions whatsoever. Sometimes the PC crashes with a DPC_Watchdog_Violation Bluescreen. I'm running on Windows 10.

    The things I've done while trying to solve this:
    -Updated all drivers using Device Manager
    -Also uninstalled all graphic, sound and network drivers, then installed them anew
    -As NVIDIA drivers tend to be fussy, I additionally tried an older version
    -Tried CHKDSK C: /F /R in the Command Prompt
    -Scanned the PC in various ways

    Edit: Today the BSOD popped up again while I was working with Ps. This leaves little doubt that there's something wrong with the graphic's card/drivers, although I still have no idea what else I could about it. Can you help?

    Hi myczaq,

    Welcome to the 10forums and apologies for the delay.

    Are you still in need of help?

    Yes, unfortunately. Not much has changed so far, I still haven't found a solution to the issue.

    In what ways did you scan your PC?

    -Avast overall scan (except for minor "better performance" matters, it didn't find anything)
    -SFC /SCANNOW in Command Prompt (when the PC restarted it got stuck at the 6% repairing for about 10 minutes, then started as usually)
    -Miscrosoft Safety Scanner (didn't think it would help, but who knows)

    And thank you very much for the reply, I was afraid nobody would answer :)
