Did you installed any program or make any change to your PC before this problem started?

Not that I recalled of.

I uninstalled my NVIDIA graphics card and reinstall the driver.

Let's hope no more BSOD.

Hi,
In most cases, you will see this error when your device driver(s) is outdated or installed wrongly. For example, if you haven’t installed the video card driver for your new operating system, DPC Watchdog Violation could easily happen when you try to watch a video online.
You could try the following steps:
Change SATA AHCI controller driver
press the Windows logo key and X at the same time, then click Device Manager.
Expand IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
Right-click SATA AHCI controller and click Properties.
To verify that you’ve chosen the correct controller: go to the Driver tab, click Driver Details.
Make sure the iaStorA.sys is listed as a driver. Click OK to exit.
Navigate to the Driver tab, then click Update Driver
Select Browse my computer for driver software.
Click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
Click Standard SATA AHCI Controller, then click Next. Finish the rest of the procedure as instructed.
Restart your computer after for the change to take effect.

Yeah same thing happened with me. I updated to the latest NVidia driver and thats when my BSOD started with the error code. I have now rolled back and am waiting to see if i still get the error. My 3D card is a GTX-760.

I did further research on a forum for Nvidia, and the update they released last week is the issue. the watchdog error is listed in the known issues for this update but a patch hasn't been made yet.

I rolled back my driver to the previous version. 466.47, as others suggested by other users with a 600/700 series of GTX and so far have not had any problems.

here is the forum if you want to take a look

Check NVIDIA for any Hot Fixes for your GPU. Hotfix needed for me was v466.74

Immediately following the Windows 10 upgrade to ver 21H1 (build 19043.1023) I started getting these BSODS every few hours (especially in MS 365 programs).
I checked that I was running the latest NVIDIA driver (v466.63) for my GPU.
The problem continued until NVIDIA have now produced a Hot Fix (v466.74) which seems to have solved the problem for me.

@AdilHasan-9771 ,

All 5 BSOD were caused by misbehaving Nvidia GPU drivers nvlddmkm.sys.

Nvidia has a hotfix:
