which is a Dell driver and conicides perfectly with the errors. Updated windows, ran system repair, updated BIOS and chipset drivers but to no avail. Spoke with Dell support and they suggested uninstalling and reinstall all drivers on the computer which I refuse to do as that will take many times longer than rebuilding the OS itself which I don't want to do either. I researched the problem including on EE but there's barely a reference to it. Anybody seen this before?
