My wife let me "borrow" her HP Envy desktop that I bought for her earlier this year. Having an MSDN subscription I wanted to try out the Windows 8.1 bits so I bought her a new iPad, and she let me take the desktop. It's been running Windows 8 since the day we got it.

I installed Windows 8.1 on a Kingston HyperX 128GB SSD, then reinstalled the original HDD. Windows OOB came with most drivers, while a few others were pulled down from Windows Update. The only one that needed some additional help was the AMD AHCI controller. Going out to HP's website for the h8-1534 model, I grabbed the latest AMD driver for the storage controller, which was released in February.

Everything ran great for several days, until this past Friday, when the PC was sitting at the Startup Repair screen. I rebooted it, and it ran fine for about a day, but then it blue screened again. And again yesterday, and once more this morning.

Each time I ran WinDbg x64, and each time the error is identical. The BSOD code is DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION (0x133) and the four parameters are always the same (0x0, 0x500, 0x501, 0x0). The offending driver is storport.sys, in the storport!RaidAdapterAcquireInterruptLock+125e2 function. The problem is very consistent -- it always faults in the same function in the same spot.

Microsoft's explanation of the dump code is this: "The DPC watchdog detected a prolonged run time at an IRQL of DISPATCH_LEVEL or above. A single DPC or ISR exceeded its time allotment. The offending component can usually be identified with a stack trace"

Normally I'm pretty good at troubleshooting, and resolving, coredumps. But this one I cannot seem to pin down.

I haven't yet installed antivirus software, so I can't point the finger there.

I loaded WindowSMART 2013, and the health of both the SSD and HDD is flawless. The UEFI diagnostics run against both the SSD and HDD also said the disks are in perfect health. Nevertheless I replaced the SATA cables for good measure, and yet the coredumps persist.

For those who salivate at the thought of coredumps, here's the contents from WinDbg.

Hopefully someone here has some insight.

While not a solution,
I have heard over at homesevershow that 8.1 is still pretty buggy and my guess is you will be able to google it and find more people will be having the same problem.
You already know it could be the driver and/or the hardware combo.
If you had another brand ssd I would try that, I dual boot win7 64 1 spinner and 1 ssd on the same box, just in case something gets balled up. The registration is the same on both as I can only use one at a time and the only difference is the drives swap places...
I hate it when things don't go the way they are supposed to. I have 1 free win8 upgrade that I haven't used yet, I don't like to be out on the edge, I'll wait a year or two, heck I just got everything to win7.
I do have win2012E on a diy and like most, don't like the metro, but I will be getting a windows phone coming up soon, so I for sure can't be trusted :crazy:
Hope things get behaving for ya...
