"0x00000133" Stop may occur on systems with Intel processors that are running Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2

This article describes a Stop error that occurs in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2. A hotfix is available to resolve this issue. The hotfix has a prerequisite and a restart requirement.

Symptoms

This issue may occur on systems with either Intel Atom, Celeron or Pentium processors that are running Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2. The Stop error message resembles the following:


STOP: 0x00000133 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)


Notes

  • This Stop error indicates a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION issue.

  • The parameters in this Stop error message vary, depending on the configuration of the computer.

  • Not all "0x00000133" Stop errors are caused by this issue.

Cause

This issue occurs because of a race condition in the Msgpioclx.sys file when the system is shutting down, hibernating, or rebooting. Specifically, the Msgpioclx.sys file does not wait for the threads that handle a general-purpose I/O (GPIO) interrupt pin to complete by a certain point.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, we have released a hotfix for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Even though this issue has only been observed in Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2, the hotfix also applies to Windows RT 8.1.
