    Hello everyone, recently I was starting getting DPC_Watchdog_Violation (blue screen) on windows 11, while using Unity.
    Unity giving crash randomly. It doesnt depend on the project.
    1. Sometimes it crashes when I just run a game to test it.
    2. Sometimes it crashes when I am just coding and suddenly comp freezes and shut itself down.

    I am using windows 11. I have to switch to Windows 11 because it was started giving blue screen even on windows 10.
    My computer Asus tuf gaming f15.
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-10300H CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50 GHz
    8.00 GB (7.84 GB usable)
    64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650

    NOTE: I was developing soft tissue simulation on Unity using ComputeShader for GPU purposes.

    Which Unity version were you using? I had a similar problem where my Windows 11 computer would blue screen at random times almost every day. At first, I didn't link it to Unity, but I realized that it only happened after having Unity open for a while using Unity 2022.3.1 LTS. I've taken a bit of a break from game dev and my computer hasn't blue screened since. I haven't tried the new version yet.
