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.

You might now try running DISM:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.
