    When you reinstalled the Nvidia driver did you use Dell as the source or Nvidia as the source of the new driver?

    To create a new user open administrative command prompt and type: net user test /add
    Then reboot and sign on with the new user named test.
    If you prefer a different user name change test to the new user name.
    This method has no password.

    For clean boot using administrative command prompt:
    1) msconfig (in the pop up system configuration > move the dot from normal startup to selective startup > uncheck load startup items > click service tab > in left lower corner check hide all Microsoft services > in the lower right side click disable all > click apply or ok > do not reboot)

    2) taskmgr (in the pop up task manager > click on the start up tab > click on status so that the column sorts with enable rising to the top > right click on each row with enable and change to disable)

    3) shutdown /r (you will reboot the computer so that it is in clean boot)

    See post #6 for whocrashed.
    After the dump test please post the whocrashed results.
    And post a new zip after runing whocrashed.

    NVIDIA was the source for the NVIDIA driver.

    I used WhoCrashed earlier to generate a test crash. It wrote a dmp file that was well over 1GB in size. Auto crash dump is selected in the settings.

    Ill try the clean boot if the issues come back. Right now Im just happy that it seems to be resolved. Ill leave the thread opened for a bit until Im more certain.

    The whocrashed should have been able to create a mini dump.
    Then it should have been able to analyze the mini dump.
    The mini dump should be part of the memory.dmp
