Constant Stop Errors on out of box Alienware

  1. My new computer is expierencing constant stop codes (22 and counting in 3 days). I have been doing some reading about stop codes and have tried some of the basic general fixes for the stop codes but they still keep comming. I have contacted alienware support but they seem to not understand what a Bug Check Code is. I have the most recent video drivers from NIVIDA but that didnt seem to help. The system seems to crash when idle of surfing the internet or sorting photos.

    Primarily I was getting 0x116 (14 of them so far)
    Most recently I have seen 0x7f (6 of them so far)

    I understand that the minidumps have some information that may be able to pinpoint the root cause but opening them and analyzing them is a bit beyond my current level of understanding. If somone could have a look at the minidumps and shed some light on other things I can try to fix this problem, I would be a verry happy person.

    Thanks in advance for your help.


    Here are some of the minidumps I hope you can understand what they are trying to tell me.
