The stop error code 0x00000133 is also known as DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION Bug Check. This error check indicates that the DPC watchdog was executed either because it detected a single long delayed procedure call (DPC) or because the system spent more time on one or more DISPATCH_LEVEL interrupt request level (IRQL). The value of parameter 1 indicates if only one DPC has exceeded a waiting time or if the system has spent a longer cumulative period at IRQL DISPATCH_LEVEL or more. DPCs should last no longer than 100 microseconds and ISRs no longer than 25 microseconds, but the actual timeout values on the system are much higher.
This error is due to specific factors, such as unsupported SSD firmware, old SSD driver model, hardware incompatibility problems or corrupted system files. So, if you are using an SSD on your Windows computer, the first step is to check the firmware version of the SSD and make sure it is up to date.
