DPC Watchdog Violation Problem

Hi everyone.
I have recently been getting a blue screen that says "DPC Watchdog Violation".
After some research I read that the iaStorA.sys driver might be the problem.
The article said that if you have storahci.sys (which I do) you should update the driver.
Windows says I already have the best one.
The thing is I cannot seem to find the correct driver.
I'm running Windows 10 Pro
Dell Optiplex 7010 sff
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570 CPU @ 3.40GHz
Motherboard-DELL 0GXM1W.

Somewhere on your Dell is a black sticker with a "Service Tag Number" such as 7N7FMS1. Jot it down or snap a pic of it then go to this Dell support page: https://www.dell.com/support/home/en-us and type that Service Tag number into the "Identify your product" box on the left. On the page that pops up, click the "Drivers & Downloads" link.

Thank you so much.
I had to download Dell Service Assist to find out my Service Tag, but it did the trick.
Now I guess I'll find out if that was indeed the problem.
Also found out I have a critical Bios update, but I need to look into how to install it properly as Service Assist could not.
