VAIO PRO 13: DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION after BIOS UPDATE

Just two days ago, I updated the BIOS, as rec. by SONY.  Unfortunately, my PRO 13 has crashed twice.  My most recent error was a DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION. 

 

Please advise on repair.  Thank you.

GoJohnnyGo Please provide the exact model name of your VAIO computer.  You may try to observe the operation of your computer in safemode and see if that will make any difference.

 

xescoto I am really sorry to hear that you are having the same issue. Can you also provide the model name of your VAIO computer?

I am having the exact same issue. This blue screen has happened almost every single day after updating my laptop.

Hi Rich:

 

SVP132A1CL is the model number.  Soon after release, I purchased it at the Sony Store in South Coast Plaza.

 

Last week, I did not use my VAIO. However, when I fired her up, I was able to duplicate the problem, again.  

 

Certainly, I will try you recommendation.

Hello everebody,

got the same problem on my SVP1321M2RS with Win8

It beggun right after i updated all the drivers and BIOS via Sony Update tool.

Now it strikes in different occasions, serfing internet or watching an AVI video file...

It could be the WIFI driver working not properly.... but i cant roll back coz of this issueSmiley Sadhttp://community.sony.com/t5/VAIO-Hardware-Networking/New-Sony-Vaio-Pro-Wifi-Issue/td-p/143557)

My internet will just stop working...

Hope we will find the solution here!

P.S. and you know ... iam so frustrated with Sony notebook... got this WIFI issue and now this BSOD.... how can it be that they release a premium device and u feel like you are a beta-tester spending your time dancing with this drivers... rolling on and back.... restoring your system etc....
