    Also what drivers are using for bluetooth and Accelerometer. I have got some drivers and they seem to be working. But dont know if they creating any conflict. Plus are there supposed to be updated cantiga and intel management drivers?? i am not aware of that.
    I am currently using the beta driver 12.11. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to fix the issue.

    i don't have Bluetooth, but am using the original Dell drivers from their website for the chipset, bios, networking, and everything else besides graphics. My BSOD is reporting the same issue, so pretty much guaranteed to be related to AMD driver.

    The best course of action does seem to be to complain to AMD and Microsoft. You may want to post to Home - Microsoft Community as well
    Yes I plan to report it to AMD and Microsoft as well..

    Meanwhile i have found an interim solution which is to at least make our laptops usable. I have disabled the ATI adapter from the device manager. Yes the graphics arent that awesome. But its better than have BSODs every few minutes.

    So i am not gonna be on Integrated Graphics till AMD doesnt figure it out.

    Also, I used The consumer preview for a few days and dont remember the problem happening back then. May be M$ changed something in between.

    Lets hope it gets resolved real soon.

    Nope, no news. I submitted a report from the link you provided. I even tried using the generic PnP graphic driver but that did not fix the BSODs. So, I am back on Windows 7 for the foreseeable future (and also considering getting an apple laptop)

    Let me know if you are able to get anything working.

    My problem is that i am back to windows 7 and cant test it myself and so i want anyone who still has windows 8 to test it out and report if its actually working.
