DPC Watchdog Violation BSOD

Marwan R 21 Reputation points

I am currently facing issues with my PC. It was working fine in the morning until later in the evening as I was playing a game, I received a BSOD with the DPC Watchdog violation error. I perform CHKDSK and SFC /scannow and it showed me no errors, yet I am still encountering this BSOD message. I did check the drives are all up to update. Running in safe mode seems to be fine.

I am attaching the Minidumps on this link:


Any help is very much appreciated.
