Recurring BSOD while gaming Windows 8 [WATCHDOG_VIOLATION]

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I need some help. I constantly get this BSOD in windows 8 64-bit anytime I am gaming. it always happens about 15 minutes into playing.

The computer isnt new, and this has NEVER happened before, so i don't know why this would be happening now. I have already tried the 'Windows refresh' option where it basically reinstalls the OS but keeps my files intact.

Either way, I need some help figuring out the problem. Heres the most recent MEMORY.dmp file frown.gif

And here's the most recent minidump file

I appreciate any help you all can give. This is extremely frustrating mad.gif

Computer specs are the sig rig.


thanks

Ok you were playing FarCry3 when this happened.

The drivers involved:

ha20x22k.sys - http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=ha20x22k.sys
ctaud2k.sys - http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=ctaud2k.sys
ctoss2k.sys - http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=ctoss2k.sys

All from Creative.


What do you have from that brand?



Other out-dated / known sketchy drivers:

nVidia 320.18 - nvlddmkm.sys Sun May 12 22:09:45 2013
I would avoid and revert back to 314.22.

e1i63x64.sys - http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=e1i63x64.sys
HECIx64.sys - http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=HECIx64.sys
dvdfab.sys - a part of "Passkey" from Fengtao Software Inc. (DVDFab Passkey)

Ok all I have from creative is my x-fi titanium sound card. I installed the latest driver for that a while back, but I guess that's the problem and I should roll it back.

I'll also roll back my nvidia drivers.

Dvdfab is something I can shut until I need it. I use it to rip my DVD collection.

Thanks a bunch. I'll try these fixes out.

As you can see they are from Dec '12, according to creative the latest driver is from Jan '13
So yeah it's probably the same one.


Also don't ignore these two if you keep having trouble!

e1i63x64.sys - http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=e1i63x64.sys
HECIx64.sys - http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=HECIx64.sys


Be sure to post back!
Ohh and it's my pleasure.

So you think i need to roll back PAST the December creative drivers?

Also Where can I find updates for those two?

Think you need to roll back to the ones you had no issues with.

The links I posted next to them are a description and a link to, if available, newer versions ( usually the link is on the left hand side underscored in blue).
BUT newer versions doesnt always mean better so change them as I said if you have further issues after addressing the creative drivers

ok.

For right now I'm going to keep my nvidia drivers, because i forgot that for some reason 314.22 had an issue where every game would crash in SLI mode.

I rolled back my audio drivers (I had to go all the way back to last year's windows 8 beta drivers tongue.gif

So I'm gonna test it out now

Ok, another crash, but even faster this time.

Heres the newest minidump

**EDIT** Ok, i feel a little stupid right now. The creative drivers never installed, I had to roll back via device manager, and now it seems to be working MUCH better than before.

I just played about 30 minutes with zero issues
