Check for any recent Windows updates in particular hardware/device drivers. Look in View update history

I tried every solution out there for 3 straight days to fix this evil DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION bsod and nothing suggested worked! I finally came across this solution and was blown away when it actually worked. Took a mere 20 seconds and no messing with installing/uninstalling drivers etc. This was posted by someone named Peter.....and Mr. Peter, I thank you!!!

 

The problem;

Virtual Memory caused by a corrupt registry entry can be the cause of your Watchdog violation

 

The Fix;

We are going to change your virtual memory

 

  1. Right click on Icon named "This PC" formally know as My Computer
  2. Click on Properties
  3. Click on Advanced system settings
  4. In the section named Performance click on Settings
  5. Click on Advanced tab
  6. In the Virtual memory section click on Change
  7. Make sure "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" is UNCHECKED
  8. Click on C: (or your OS drive letter) and make sure it is highlighted
  9. Check box for System managed size  and click Set
  10. Click on OK
  11. A message box will appear tell changed will take affect after a restart.
  12. THAT'S IT.... YOU SHOULD HAVE NO MORE PROBLEMS.

Since this topic has already been bumped after OP stated they corrected their issue, I'll attach this info here for any who stumble across this issue at a later date.

 

I recently serviced a machine with a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION STOP code. The cause of the issue was that the HDD was dying. If anyone tries the other troubleshooting methods linked above with no results, you may try checking your drive's health with HDD Tune. Instructions for running both a sector scan and a SMART test can be found on the developer's site.
