Ever since I bought my computer I've been getting BSOD errors (six so far). I figured that it was my anti-virus (Avast) system. So I removed it and installed AVG. For about a week no problems but then, when I was playing League of legends and was listening to a youtube video the screen froze, then weird crackly sounds would happen then BSOD (DPC_Watchdog_Violation). I viewed the .dmp file in BlueScreenView and it said it was caused by driver hal.dll. I've only had this computer for about a week and a half and don't want to send it back to manufacture. Please help me fix this issue.
Laptop:
Sager NP9150
Specs:
Windows 8(64-bit)
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 675MX (with Optimus)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3630 QM CPU @ 2.40GHz (8 CPUs) no overclock
RAM: 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz - 2 X 4GB
HD: 500GB 7200rpm SATA 2 Hard Drive

It's very likely a driver problem. I'd suspect the Killer NIC (without much grounds). If you would like, if you upload that dmp file (a minidump I presume?) somewhere, I can look at it in WinDbg to get some more detailed info.

I think you have some problem with driver. Try to reinstall driver for bluetooth, audio and network.

Yeah its definitely a driver issue i've done a full fresh install of windows 8 3 times installed the latest drivers from manufacturers websites and still have the issue from what i've been reading from my research it may potentially have something to do with the USB 3.0 ports due to windows 8 not recognizing the manufacturers drivers but they ones that come with win8 dont work either. at a bit of a loss on that note lol im just gunna keep fiddling with it for a few more weeks till i sort it out, and if i cant well its back to ol' faithful windows 7.
