PDC_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT

STOP: 0x0000014F

 
  Description  
     
 

The Power Dependency Coordinator (PDC) device driver failed to load or initialize. When this error first occurs, Windows automatically attempts to use the Last Known Good configuration. If that fails, the system shows this error as a BSOD. issue.

This is a fatal Windows error, typically called a Stop message, Bug Check, or more commonly the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD). The system is in a forced reboot state. Any unsaved work is likely lost.

Try removing power and/or the battery from the PC for 10 seconds. Then reapply power so that a fairly clean start up occurs.

You may also want to temporally disconnect any physical network connections, to eliminate another possible problem source.

    While BSoD fatal stop errors are identified by Microsoft Windows, they are often caused by non-Microsoft applications, drivers and hardware issues.
