DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION everytime at boot, help?

Avascar. asked on

Hi, so I started suddenly getting BSODs every time at bootup with the codename of "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION". My computer would freeze up, get the BSOD, and restart like nothing happened (no BSOD at all during use of comp).

I searched into this and found it was caused by a program called ntoskrnl.exe, though I'm not sure how to fix this. This seems to occur every time I turn on my computer.

Here's my DMP file:!ytZk3LhZ!HWBZ3hgWiAitDwOE9hXRwiVKoVwsRy9NqY3IutZfBJE

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.

Unfortunately, without a kernel-dump, this cannot be debugged. This is due to minidumps not containing enough information at the time of the crash for this specific bug check.

AiCharger.sys is listed and loaded in the modules list which is the Ai Charger driver. It's included in many Asus bloatware, which you appear to have installed. Please go ahead and uninstall any and all Asus software as it's unnecessary bloatware.

If you're still crashing after the above, please check for a kernel-dump in C:\Windows named MEMORY.DMP. If not, you'll need to enable kernel-dumps:
