    Thanks..

    What I understood was that the 2 problems (8E and EA) were probably caused by the IGP PCI Express video driver, even the 8E (pci.sys). That explains why these 2 problems always happens together.

    What Do you think?

    Strange Temporary solution. I don´t know if this is the solution, but so far no more 8E and EA BSODs. I slowed down the video hardware acceleration in Windows advanced graphics properties (troubleshoot tab). Do you think this has probably something to do with my BSODs?

    Still points to Video card memory or drivers
    Did you try any older versions

    No I didn´t. I´ll run my system with the current drivers and configuration. If no more problems occurs I´ll keep the current settings.

    Can be noticable in some games.

    But if all your programs and games work, then I suppose keep the setting (until another BSOD <-- hopefully never)

    Yeah, hopefully never...

    I don´t know if this will afect games, cause it is only 2D acceleration (cursor and drawing) I slowed down. Ran some benchmarks and only 2D scores were slower...

    I´ll report here if the problems returns...

    Bad news. BSOD 8E and EA returned as soon as I exit Dungeon Siege2 game. The two together as always. Uninstalled all Intel Graphics driver. Ran Drivercleaner, cleaned registry, etc... Installed Original Dell driver. Lets see.

    One every strange thing is that the 2D Passmark scores lowered a lot, but the 3D Passmark score were higher.

    OK, I´ll update the thread...

    Do you have any idea why these two BSODs always happens together? What 8E BSOD (pci.sys) has to do with EA BSOD (igxpdv32.dll)? Do they have a "connection" between the two?

    Thanks

    OK Kimsland, after two weeks that I changed my video driver back to the Dell version no more BSODs or any problems. Not a single lockup. Thanks everyone for the posts and help...
