I've bought a new Dell XPS 8300 Desktop PC just 5 days ago.
I'd accidently once made some other partition(other than windows') active through disk management tool of windows due to which on reboot it showed BOOTMGR missing. I talked to Dell technical support, and they guided me to a fresh re-installation of windows. I installed all the drivers on their Resource CD. And, now I've a fresh installation of my PC
But, now, I'm receiving BSODs at some points of time. It has occured 3 times till now,
1. when I was running uTorrent
2. when I was dealing with a zip file.
3. when I was attempting to copy files from my Seagate GoFlex 500 GB external portable disk(which has developed some really bad sectors with great fragmentation).
Here's was I get in the error report after reboot:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033
Additional information about the problem:
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Files that help describe the problem:
I strongly believe it is a driver conflict with McAfee. Its the worst antivirus by far, I had it 3 years ago both on my laptop and desktop and i was getting BSOD in Vista because of McAfee and LAN drivers conflict, according to the error code I had on the BSOD info. Once I removed it completely my PC was 100% faster and i stopped having BSOD.
