Suspected BSODs on Windows 8.1 0x00000133


I suspect my computer is BSODing while I'm away. Usually when I leave the computer for a moment I make it sleep but it seems to wake up and BSOD.

Here are my minidumps file:

I'm running two nvidia GTX 560Ti, an i7 3370K from Intel and 16GB of RAM.

I only overclock my graphics cards.

I'm also running Windows 8.1 64bits.

Thanks for your help.



The attached DMP file is of the DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (133) bug check.

This bug check indicates that the DPC watchdog executed, either because it detected a single long-running deferred procedure call (DPC), or because the system spent a prolonged time at an interrupt request level (IRQL) of DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

nvlddmkm.sys is the nVidia video driver. Your GPU overclocks are unstable, therefore when the system receives a clock interrupt (which appears to be to update the system time), there is a bad response caused by the unstable GPUs regarding DPCs, therefore the bugcheck is called.

Undo your overclocks ASAP & ensure you have the latest video card drivers. If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.
