Windows 8 BSOD DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION while playing games RRS feed

    Processor: Intel Core i3 2100

    GPU: Intel HD Graphics 2000

    Motherboard: MSI H67MA-E45

    The DPC watchdog detected a prolonged run time at an IRQL of DISPATCH_LEVEL
    or above.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 00000000, A single DPC or ISR exceeded its time allotment. The offending
    	component can usually be identified with a stack trace.
