Windows 10: BSOD even when not doing anything, error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
BSOD even when not doing anything, error DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
I get the DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION BSOD error within 5 minutes of the computer starting or rebooting after BSOD appears. The computer would suddenly cause every window open to go not responding and freeze up the whole screen. After a short while, the computer would crash. I have tried to do a Windows system files corruption check which didn't help. This issue has rendered my computer useless.
I have attached the file created by the DM Log tool which includes the minidump files.

Looks like you are over clocking your CPU:
Try setting speeds and voltages to nominal and see if that resolves the problem.
0: kd> !sysinfo cpuspeed
CPUID: "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz"
I didn't overclock my CPU, I believe it is because my CPU can dynamically increase clock rates with Turbo Boost up to 2.6 GHz.
Ah, thanks. I forgot about that capability with some systems.
The 11/9 11:42 dump indicates a problem with nvlddmkm which is your Nvidia driver. Looking at the DxDiag output a lot of the fields are Unknown which is very unusual.
Try uninstalling and reinstalling only the graphics driver and the PhysX drivers as follows:
Remove and install latest Nvidia drivers:
I suggest completely uninstalling the Nvidia display drivers using Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) from WagnardMobile (near bottom of page) then get the latest driver for you Nvidia card here: NVIDIA Driver Downloads
Then do a custom install of only the NVidia graphics driver and the PhysX driver.
See if that gets rid of the problem.
