[SOLVED] DPC Watchdog Violation BSOD at random times when playing a certain few games.

Jun 3, 2021

I have been having a problem on a couple of games (Hearts of Iron 4 and Civilization 6 mainly) where at random intivials (sometimes hours apart) the screen will freeze, the audio will loop and after a few seconds a DPC Watchdog Violation BSOD will appear.

I have tried updating all drivers and have properly cleaned out my PC, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated as it is starting to drive me mad!

I am not that great with the ins and outs of computers but have added a screenshot of the minidump info (I'm not sure if this is of any help)


Dealing with a lot of these issues at work. What antivirus software do you have installed? Usually those are to blame for PDC Watchdog BSODs.
