    Hi!

    I recently got a BSOD which said PDC_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. This was right after i opened the cover of my Surface, and the back of it was really hot. It had been in sleep for about 30 minutes. I got logged in, but it didnt respond to touch. I had no time to test for keyboard and mouse functionality. The screen rotation worked perfectly too.

    Any idea of what could have happened, or has anyone experienced it before?. This is my second SP4, and i really dont want to send this one back as well.

    Typically occurs due to memory corruption.
    This is the Power Dependency connector.
    To fix it.. unplug your machine for about 10-20 seconds and reboot. Normally will clear it up.
    Also make sure your drivers are upto date. Finally run a MemTest to ensure your RAM is OK.
    HTH.
