    Hi perdrix,

    It seems Dell hasn't tested the system model for Windows 10.
    Attachment 49806
    The BIOS is also from before Windows 7 and no updates are available, this sometimes could cause problems.
    Code:
    BIOS Version:              Dell Inc.                 A08, 25/04/2008
    I am wondering if this pc is compatible for Windows 10

    Even though I doubt it, it is no reason for me to not provide support.
    The cause is the AMD graphics drivers, it though looks like a 1time crash according to the logs.
    If this is the case that it is a 1time crash, then there is nothing to worry about as Windows takes the appropriate actions to solve the crash.

    If you however would like to do something:
    Please uninstall everything of AMD using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from AMD. Be sure to ONLY install the drivers using custom/advanced options.
    Code:
    *** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for atikmdag.sys
    *** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for atikmdag.sys
    4: kd> lmvm atikmdag
    start             end                 module name

    It would appear that (unless you know better) that I already have the latest drivers for the FireGL V7600

    FirePro_8.911.3.4_VistaWin7_X32X64_140087

    Which are for Win7/Vista

    Thanks for looking at the dump

    In that case I suggest you simply clean reinstall the drivers with DDU

    I uninstalled and reset the download drivers switch to default using DDU and Windows auto-detected the card and downloaded a driver level which I hadn't found in Google searches.

    Device Manager reports driver level: 8.970.100.9001

    Thanks once again for your help.
