Hey all,
My PC keeps crashing with DPC Watchdog Violation BSOD, i have no idea of the problem and many searches on Google points to an SSD problem but i dont have an SSD installed. I have no idea what the issue is

This has been going on Since last year but my minidumps only go as far as the start of last month,

I have used BlueScreeView which show an issue with my Sata card which think i have fixed with a bios update on the card but my system still crashes

Two other issues are present hal.dll and ntoskrnl.exe.

Can anyone look at my minidump files and maybe identify an issue?

Thanks in advance

Attached Files

The issue is definitely related to your processor, RAM or SATA controller as the very fundamental hardware drivers are directly involved.
DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (133)
The DPC watchdog detected a prolonged run time at an IRQL of DISPATCH_LEVEL
or above.
Arguments:
Arg1: 00000001, The system cumulatively spent an extended period of time at
	DISPATCH_LEVEL or above. The offending component can usually be
	identified with a stack trace.
Arg2: 00000780, The watchdog period.
Arg3: 00000000
Arg4: 00000000

A watchdog timeout means that the CPUs simply stopped serving interrupts, so you may have a hardware problem with your Pentium 4. I'd suggest a Prime95 test along with Memtest86+

HalpTimerClockInterruptCommon+0x3c
hal!HalpTimerClockInterrupt+0x199
You also have an outdated Silion Image SATA driver from 2004 that is not compatible with Windows 8, that needs to be updated or removed.

Thanks, I have updated my Sata Driver (thought I had the latest) and running the Prime95 (stress test) right now and will update with results when finshed.

A few things that keeps being listed in Event Viewer not sure if they are related

Kernel-PnP - The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device WpdBusEnumRoot\UMB\2&37c186b&0&STORAGE#VOLUME#_??_USBSTOR#DISK&VEN_GENERIC-&PROD_MS#MS-PRO&REV_1.00#20060413092100000&3#.

SideBySide - Activation context generation failed for "C:\Windows\Installer\{AF7EBCA4-9FAF-4DC8-8D09-67854BB84D34}\recordingmanager.exe". Dependent Assembly rpshellextension.1.0,language="*",type="win32",version="1.0.0.0" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis. ( I get this message for other applications not just this one)

The first one is related to an USB storage device driver or your system USB drivers themselves. I can't tell what is specifically causing your second issue but SideBySide errors are typically caused by the current Microsoft Visual C++ package version not being backward compatible with the application(s) that failed. You're likely missing crucial Visual C++ 2008/2010 packages. Download & install them from Microsoft's website.

All my USB devices work, so that error confuses me, I have MS Visual C++ 2005/2008/2010 Redistributable versions installed already but I still get the problem
