Getting frequent Windows 10 DPC Watchdog Violation Crashes. How to update drivers for my AMD Athlon II x4 645 Processor?

Hi there!

 

I recently had Windows 10 install itself onto my 6-year old desktop computer. It worked smoothly for a few days, but now I am getting a Windows 10 BSOD with a DPC Watchdog Violation every time my desktop computer is idle for a few minutes. This just crashes the computer and requires me to restart.

 

Thinking I need to update drivers for my AMD Athlon II x4 645 Processor or NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Graphics Card. Where can I get the AMD drivers? Any other ideas why I am getting these frequent crashes?

 

Thank you!
