Moved back to windows 11 since this is not a malware issue.

One thing you can do is go back to the clean boot settings, this time just disable each service one at time and test the machine while that service is disabled.

Seems the crash was caused by your graphics driver.

Dump: 072722-6234-01.dmp (27.07.2022 21:14:53)
Code: 0x133 - DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
Process: System, probably caused by: nvlddmkm.sys
Third-party modules in the stack: nvlddmkm.sys
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: 0x133_ISR_nvlddmkm!unknown_function

You could try and reseat the card.

As well you could do a clean install with DDU

I'll tag you some help since I do not have much spare time on my hands these days.

Run DDU and install a fresh set of drivers from here.

An important note: You MUST download the driver executable and disconnect your computer from the internet before running DDU, otherwise Windows will automatically download drivers (which you don't want).

Below is a laundry list of good housekeeping, it wouldn't hurt to try them as well.


1. Try running the following programs, also try to keep at least 20-25% of your disks as free space.

Run Disk Cleanup (check all the boxes) this will delete things such as your recycling bin, so make sure you don't have any files you want to keep.

Run Defragment and Optimize Drives, run this on your drives.


2. Disable any overclocking or changes to power/performance settings

Turn off XMP/any overclocking you may have done (if any)

Settings > System > Power and sleep > Additional power settings
Make sure your power plan is set to balanced, anything else could tamper with the wrong settings and cause issues.


3. Check for Operating System Corruption

Right click on the Windows logo in the bottom left and select Windows Powershell (Admin)
Run these three commands separately:

sfc /scannow

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

These will take a while to run, do not close out of Powershell while they are running, if one fails then move onto the next and then loop back around.

Note: It doesn't hurt to make a system backup before you make all these changes, save any important files of folders. While these changes shouldn't cause any issues, better to be safe than sorry.


4. Unplug unnecessary devices.
If you have a gamepad, extra monitor, external hard drive/flash drive, or anything that is not essential to using the computer plugged in, unplug it. You should be left with your monitor, mouse and keyboard.


Once you have completed all of these tasks, restart it (using the restart option in the power menu) and re-test.

Which driver would you want me to install? Or is it the NVIDIA auto-installer? I'm unsure which one to download and you mention getting the exe first and I want to have it ready before I do the DDU.

The auto-installer will not work as it needs an internet connection to install the drivers.

I'd go for the first "Game Ready" drivers for your make and model.

The filters are as follows:
GeForce
GeForce 16 Series
GeForce GTX 1660 Super
Windows 11
Your Language
All

My apologies for the tardy response, PCHF has been particularly bad about giving me notifications as of late.

Gotcha! From what I can tell for now the freezes aren't happening when they usually do. I'll keep this updated for a little bit in case it does happen again.

Code: 0x133 - DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION
Process: System, probably caused by: memory_corruption
Third-party modules in the stack: usbvideo.sysw

Do you have any USB devices plugged in other than your mouse and keyboard?


Did you ever have luck reseating the components as Malnutrition suggested in post 42?

Reseated graphics card and used minimal a
On top of the graphics card, I'd hit the ram too while you're in there.

The mic and second monitor can go for testing. :)
Reseated the graphics card and unplugged mic and second monitor. Still froze. Here's the .dmp for the latest crash

We've got a new error, so that's a good start. :)

This runs back to your video drivers, when you reinstalled them did you run DDU and install the new drivers before connecting to the internet?

Let's try pulling the graphics card out and running the system without it. Unplug the GPU and set it on an anti-static workspace, wooden tables or cardboard boxes work great.

Boot the system up, does the error still occur without the GPU installed?

The install definitely happened while off the internet. I'll try pulling out the GPU

Just realized I don't think I can test that. The only HDMI or displayport ports are on the GPU, and I don't have any USB monitors. I might grab an HDMI to USB adapter and try that, though

Can you get me a picture of the back of your motherboard so I can see what you have to work with?

A clear well-lit photo of the back of the case will help me figure out how we can test without the GPU. :D
