    BSOD 0x133 DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION while browsing


    So I was browsing stuff on the web and this happens. Anyway, since then I've tried to update some certain drivers related to the issue, however, most of them were already up-to-date. I've ran an SFC scan and nothing came up in there either. Anyhow, specs down below and logs attached as always. I had checked for a BIOS update later and I've updated it since. I will try chkdsk sometime if that also helps. Thanks to anyone taking their time

    Dump indicates a problem with Qcamain10x64.sys.
    Code:
    BugCheck 133, {1, 1e00, fffff801cac5f348, 0}
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for Qcamain10x64.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for Qcamain10x64.sys
    Probably caused by : Qcamain10x64.sys ( Qcamain10x64+1276ed )

    The driver you have is dated: Tue Apr 18 06:21:46 2017
    The latest one on the Lenovo website is dated: 2017/06/21

    Download and install the one from Lenovo and see if that resolves your problem.

    Hey there zbook! Sorry, I took a while to respond. Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Here are the requested screenshots except for one. For some reason, I keep getting this error message while trying a Write Benchmark. Please tell me how to work around this issue if you need the write benchmark as well.

    Also, I have only recently received the Feature Update for Version 1709 in Windows Update. Because my internet is being slow, it would probably take quite a long time to finish downloading.

    Read Benchmark:
