dpc_watchdog_violation windows 10 nvidia

I have an Alienware 17

intel(R) i7-4910 2.90 GHz
nvidia Gtx 860m

Windows 10 keep crashing with the error dpc_watchdog_violation, but when i disable the nvidia GTX, the error goes away, so im sure it is the nvidia driver that is failing.

---Battery drains fast too "could this have anything to do with it"--
