Hi all,

I have a Dell Precision M6800 with Samsung 500GB SSD HDD runing win8.1. I'm getting random BSODs which I have attached the minidump report. however when I boot to safe mode I don't experience the random lockup and auto restart. I have not installed any additional application and hardware. the system file check came clean and I have ran CCleaner as well, I do not suspect virus aether. could some one help thank you.

One common cause for this error is the Dell Video driver. Download the most recent Video driver and install the new one or reinstall the driver if you already have the new one.

the driver were already updated however as you suggested I uninstall the video drivers (two was detected) and after restarting the PC windows 8 automatically found the right drives for the graphic interface and I did not update those, just let some application to run on the computer for few hours now and everything seams to be working fine and hasn't crashed! thank you.
