Hi my computer keeps BSOD/freezing about after about an hour of being turned on. I get DPC_Watchdog_Violation
So far I've:
1.) Tried testing the computer with each single stick of RAM but the same thing happens
2.) Tested the PC without the graphics card just using the internal graphics card
3.) Updated graphic card drivers AMD CCC
Any help would be greatly appreciated. On a side note when I updated AMD CCC I am not able to put my monitor back to it's highest resolution 2560x1600
Did you used any temporary file cleaning tool ? . If yes, stop using them until the issue is solved. They might delete the crash dumps. I will try to gather as much info from the single dump and keep you posted after doing that.
I've 2 and uninstalled daemon tools. I'm trying to update my ssd firmware. But it is failing to boot into the firmware. It gets stuck on boot 2880.img then says isolinux: disk error 10, ax = 4280, drive EF .. boot failed : press a key to retry.
Could you help with this or give an alternative?
Make sure you are using the latest WHQL version of the AMD driver. Uninstall all AMD related divers from Control Panel --> Programs first. Double check and make sure nothing related to AMD is left in the system. Now install the latest version of the diver.
While installing, choose Advanced (custom) instead of Express install and uncheck Catalyst control center. Sometime it could be problematic. Also please note that, components like AMD fuel, Wireless display are totally unnecessary.
After installing the display driver, update the chipset driver also.
Cutting-edge integrated display support

21.6 Gbps bandwidth
High bit-rate audio
HDMI 1.4a with Stereoscopic 3D Frame Packing Format, Deep Color, xvYCC wide gamut support, and high bit-rate audio

Dual-link DVI with HDCP
Max resolution: 2560x1600
Max resolution: 2048x1536
According to AMD, you should either use dual link DVI or display port for 2560x1600 resolution support. HDMI won't support that resolution. 1920x1200 is the native resolution of HDMI ports and your system seems to be connected through that. So basically your system currently operates on native resolution (recommended) and nothing wrong i can see. For a proper system operation, up to dated graphic drivers are always recommended.
