PC Crashes Consistently

HeliturtleOP

I've had problems with my PC since I installed my GPU. The gist is when I do certain things on my PC the screen goes black, all the fans ramp up to 100%, and it stays like that for a couple of minutes before restarting.
The most recent time this has occurred is when I tried launching Predecessor on the Epic Games Store, I can launch the game but my PC crashes on the first loading screen. 
This has also happened consistently in:

  • Hellblade with raytracing on
  • Minecraft with nice shaders
  • Tomb raider when adjusting the anti-aliasing

I've tried figuring this out before with no luck, but I figured it's worth another shot.

 

My specs are:

  • Windows 10 Home 64-bit
  • ASUS Prime B650-Plus (BIOS version 1616)
  • AMD Ryzen 5 7600
  • 4x8 GB DDR5 4800MHz
  • RTX 3080 (HP OEM version)
  • spcc m.2 PCIe ssd
  • Crucial BX 500 (1 TB)
  • Gigabyte UD850GM Modular Powe Supply 
     

I can not get perfmon /report finish collecting data

The dump files blame the Nvidia driver in the general info area, but with these crashes (DPC_Watchdog_Violation) it's really hard for the OS to know which driver is actually at fault. What you do is that you look at the current and pending DPCs from lots of crashes and see if there are any other drivers that the crashes have in common that could be a culprit.  In every single one of these, the next execute is the AMD GPU driver, amdkmdag.sys.

 

Example:

CPU#0
--------------------------------------------------
Current DPC: nvlddmkm+0x9D000 (Normal DPC)
Debugger Saved IRQL: 13
Cumulative DPC Time Limit: 0.000 seconds
Current Cumulative DPC Time: 0.000 seconds
Single DPC Time Limit: 0.000 seconds
Current Single DPC Time: 0.000 seconds
dt nt!_ISRDPCSTATS fffff806712f39f0
IsrActive: TRUE

Pending DPCs:
----------------------------------------
CPU Type      KDPC       Function
 0: Normal  : 0xffff818888a29d00 0xfffff806d37f6ac0 amdkmdag
 0: Normal  : 0xffff81888d29e308 0xfffff80670ba8ce0 nt!EtwpLoggerDpc
 0: Threaded: 0xfffff8066c8f23d8 0xfffff806708f8490 nt!KiDpcWatchdog

 

So that makes me wonder if this is a driver conflict. Could you disable the iGPU in the BIOS?

Disable igpu, run DDU in safe mode, restart and install nvidia driver. Should have you squared away.

Thank you both for your suggestions.

Unfortunately, after disabling my iGPU and uninstalling/reinstalling my GPU drivers, I'm still getting the same crash.

I will try updating my bios as a shot in the dark, and if it would help to have my new BSOD dump I can provide that too.

That didn't work so now I'm lost again.

The GPU would be the next suspect then.

Yeah, I have an old amd firepro GPU that I could swap in for testing purposes, but I suspect that configuration might have its own problems.
