Lately, I have been having an issue with my computer. It is crashing and showing me a screen that says 'Your PC has ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you. If you'd like to know more, you can search online later for this error 'DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION'. 

After that, it restarts again and sometimes lets me back in.


This has happened to me randomly 5 times over a period of 3 days.


I tried to read up on the subject, and I saw that it could be caused by a multitude of reasons (firmware, updating, software). I need help pinpointing the reason for this. I want to know if my computer is infected and also how I can fix this.


I have a HP Pavilion Laptop with Windows 8.1.


Any help is greatly appreciated.


Thank you for your time.
