What does this sound like to you?
    That crash isn't really very specific, it usually is caused by graphics drivers, network drivers, usb drivers or sound drivers but it can vary due to the presence of other software that is also active at the boot process.

    With a brand new laptop I would return it and get a new one.
    I wouldn't do any analyse on it, but it usually means hardware problems (or drivers but less chance for drivers being the cause)

    If you see a different Windows version, it means that the Windows version that you can see on the sticker was pre-installed.
    Then why would something about win8 be in the dump file?

    Last question at least tonight - any links to a window 10: removing Bloatware

    When I get the new one I would like to remove the Bloatware. Also, it comes with McAfee. I prefer Avast but to be honest, after this first nightmare I am afraid to try and delete McAfee and install Avast. Knowing me I will leave some McAfee files on by mistake and they will conflict with Avast and all hell will break loose lol.

    Default Bucket ID Win8 Driver Fault

    That's what it said. That's why I think windows 8 was on the laptop before windows 10. What does that mean?

    Code:
    DEFAULT_BUCKET_ID:  WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT
    It means the system is using the engine of, in my example, Windows 7.
    This is normal, I see it all the time

    Oh wow, thx. Didn't know that. So that doesn't mean that windows 8 was on before windows 10 huh??

    That's good to know. You said that is normal. It says though driver fault. That doesn't sound good does it?

    A bluescreen is never good, it is a little indication of what direction you need to have.
    I'm not really using it anymore, usually with some dumps a direction of where to go is clear without looking at that line.

    Thx for your help axe0. Hopefully this new laptop will be fine. Before I sign off could you answer my last question about if I should delete McAfee for Avast and links to removing Bloatware for window 10?? Thx again. Also if this happens again with this new laptop, then it has to be most likely a driver issue right? Thx again!!!

    For the bloatware, I refer to the link of the tutorial for a clean install in post 76
    Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    For McAfee, I would first find out if it is worth it to keep. I kept it because I had paid for it when I paid for my laptop.
    After the subscription expired I removed it, did research for AV's and decided to use Bitdefender.
    Although I use Bitdefender, Windows Defender (the build-in) is good and much improved in Windows 8 and higher and Windows Defender is the most stable AV of them all.
