DPC Watchdog Violation on Windows 10

I keep getting a blue screen with error message "DPC_Watchdog_Violation" on my machine. I upgraded to Windows 10 a couple of months ago. I've already tried turning off "Fast Startup" and updating a couple of drivers.

What do I need to do to fix this? It freezes my computer every few minutes and then goes to the blue screen and restarts.

What kind (model) of machine. I see posts for updating the Touch Pad and Synaptics drivers for Dell machines and you might try that. I have Synaptics drivers for my Lenovo that work fine.

Also upgrade to Threshold 2 as it will upgrade Synaptics drivers on the way by.

Did you try the Touch Pad drivers?

Another thing for you to try is to update BIOS, Chipset (and possibly Video) drivers on your machine.  About the only thing I can find for this error is driver errors.
