    Windows 8 Pro Build 92xx


    Hello There!
    Yesterday I formatted my notebook and installed WINDOWS 8.
    I installed the drivers that I found on the website of DELL (; okay here until time to install the driver for the AMD video card RADEON HD 7450, when it starts to install the graphics driver gives a BSOD with the description "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION" I tried to manually install (Device Manager) and says that already installed the latest version.
    I will upload a .RAR WITH the log of the "SF Diagnostic Tool".
    DELL Inspiron 14r N4110
    AMD Radeon HD 7450 (Uncertain)
    Intel Inside Core i5

    Thanks for Helping Me!

    Looks like a mixture of software/hardware issue.

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable!

    Her is a AMD Radeon HD 7450M, i erased all the driver files and used the uninstall option on device mananger, and my radeon transformed in a AMD Radeon 6400 Series (Enginnering WDDM 1.0).
    AMD are helping me with this.
