DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION when visiting ESPN.com via Explorer

I am getting the BSOD and DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION every time I visit the ESPN.com website via Explorer.  It only occurs while visiting that specific site.  I have an XPS 15 9530. Any thoughts?  TIA!

Re: DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION when visiting ESPN.com via Explor

Have you tried another browser on that site? And if you are using Windows 10, IE 11 can be a bit unpredictable at times which is why MS recommends using Edge instead. But try the suggestions in the following link.

Thanks for the information.  Curiously, I tried to open ESPN.com via Chrome and the same thing happened: screen froze and the the BSOD and DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION notice.  I have tried updating drivers and running Dell SupportAssist, but may reach out ESPN.

Same here. Started maybe over the weekend, lasted 2-3 days, stopped 2-3 days and now resumed this morning. Happens with Chrome and Firefox too.

I tried to find an email for ESPN.com without actually going to the website and risking another BSOD.  I will just avoid the site for the time being.  The app works fine on my iPhone.
