You appear to have a driver issue.

Make sure the Dell computer is capable of running Windows 8 - it may not be.

Then, update BIOS, Chipset and Power Management drivers and see if the errors go away.

All drivers are up to date.
Then I would ask Dell Support whether this computer will run Windows 8. It may not be compatible.
Dell support logged in and install a diff. graphics driver and problem went away, it's back again.
