    Hello, failure in creating dump file means first 2 things to check out are disk and memory.

    for mem test run some 12-16 passes:
    MemTest86+ - Test RAM

    To see if there is problem with disk, trying another one would be good idea, or at least attaching this one to another slot.
    it could be controller issue, or bad cable.

    Ok, Will try those. I did a RAM test before, it found no issues. I didn't do an overnight one though.

    The disk is an NVME ssd, attached inside the laptop. Don't have any other disks/computers to try them out on.

    New BSOD happened, this time with a dump. Yay? Some driver_power_state failure.

    Hello, In my previous post HERE I asked to please provide all files needed not just DMP file.

    Following link explains how to enable driver verifier, make sure you understand the process and make a backup to external drive:

    driver verifier may help help to find the issue but beware of possible rare issues using it.

    Here is the link to the complete set. Box
    My BSOD induced anger makes me not think clearly and submit the wrong things.

    Driver verifier has been running for the graphics driver, but it seems like that isn't causing the crashes.(??)

    Thank you!

    Thank you for sharing, 2 events:
    Initialization failed because the driver device could not be created. Use the string "025041000001" to identify the interface for which initialization failed.
    Following describes what happened during a crash:
    A corrected hardware error has occurred. A record describing the condition is contained in the data section of this event.
    It confirms likely driver problem but to catch it I would enable driver verifier for all drivers, because verifier did not report GPU driver as culprit.

    Driver verifier link tells you need a backup, but it would be good to also have bootable USB in place for case if you won't be able to boot back into Windows:

    Having a backup of your important files on external drive or another computer is also desired.

    So I enabled driver verifier for all the driver and ran it for about a day.
    Then I had a random crash, saw the BSOD screen and got a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error. The bsod would not complete and was stuck at 100%. No dump file was generated though.

    Do you think it's strange that I seem to be getting different errors every time? Hardware issue perhaps? Dell support says it is not, but they seem pretty uninformed.

    Dumps and logs

    Do you think wiping windows and just reinstalling everything might do the trick?

    Thanks much,

    Absolutely if you ask me, I personally reinstall my system even because of trivial problems such as
    "it feels slow"
    Although right now I didn't do it for the last 11 months or so.

    Following link may help you to get started:
    Clean Install Windows 10

    It is absolute must to have backup of your data on external drive, away from computer.

    As soon as you install Windows, make sure not to install anything on it, not even drivers, nada, zero.

    Use clean system for some time to see if problem persists, that way you isolate a lot of potential unknown variables that may appear with bloating fresh installation right away.

    If all is good, start with installing drivers but only those you find on your laptop manufacturer site.
    first chipset driver, reboot.
    then, LAN, WI-FI, audio, bluetooth, video and probably few other essential drivers, nothing else, reboot again.

    Do not install "utilities" or "bios".
    Again use system for some time.

    If all good, you can start adding your stuff and programs back.
