Windows 10: BSOD "dpc_watchdog_violation" when playing videos

    BSOD "dpc_watchdog_violation" when playing videos


    As many on the Internet, I have a BSOD when watching videos on Netflix, and sometimes on YouTube (it happens more often on Netflix than on YouTube).
    I read some threads about it, then I checked my graphic card drivers (there are up to date) and Windows Update, which indicates that everything is up to date. I also changed my "IDE ATA/ATAPI controller", by chance.
    So when I'm watching videos, suddenly the video and the sound freeze, and I have a BSOD with the error "dpc_watchdog_violation", and then my computer restarts.

    I'd be very grateful if you guys could help me with this... You'll find my logs in the attachments.
    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Aywin,

    Downgrade the wifi version to the version ASUS provides.

    Download the Realtek wifi driver from ASUS, run the installer and reboot afterwards.

    That doesn't work, I still have the same problem after having done what you said with my WiFi drivers...

    If the current version from ASUS is still giving you issues, you can try the latest driver straight from Realtek here.

    Download the PCI Express package, and run setup.exe.

    If you continue to get bugchecks, post another set of logs please.

    Update the BIOS from ASUS, download the installer and run it.
