Yep, that's it.
There we go... had some problems with the IE log, but other than that, it should be fine.
Major issue with Bluestacks software, so uninstall that then reboot:
I would uninstall this very old overclocking utility and its driver:Code:HD-Hypervisor-amd64.sys
Definitely update Synaptics Touchpad Driver:Code:RTCore64 RTCore64.sys Wed May 25 02:39:12 2005
And these need a nice update too (Probably Ricoh drivers for your card reader):Code:SynTP SynTP.sys Thu Aug 27 22:00:37 2009
One or two other things I'm iffy on. Let me know if you have further problems, but you probably won't. Take care of item #1 first. That's your major beef.Code:rimmpx64 rimmpx64.sys Thu Jun 25 04:04:18 2009 rimspx64 rimspx64.sys Thu Jun 25 03:13:43 2009
Bluestacks stuff is uninstalled.
The RTCore64 is actually for undervolting - I've been using it fine in Win7 for a couple of years - should I still remove it?
Downloaded Synaptics drivers from Dell site - it said the ones I have are newer.
Ricoh card card reader updated.
Now I just wait and hope?
No need to hope. You're doing alright already.
You can Google for late 2011 or early 2012 Synaptics driver. You can find it anywhere even from other makers and it most likely will install well for you. Heck, I have an Acer netbook and I installed mine from Asus I think lol. Then used the same driver for a laptop. (Just make sure you have an external mouse ready or are very good with the keyboard, in case anything goes wonky. With either, you can roll back until you find a different one to try.)
Undervolting? You use that to lower the voltage to the gpu or something? Just curious...you can leave that alone for now I suppose.
Good job and enjoy.
Here is (edit: used to be) my contribution! Thank you for taking your time and helping us!
I recently reinstalled Windows 8. I just installed the graphics driver and nothing else, for now!

Drivers | Synaptics seem to be what I'm looking for?
and I actually use it to undervolt the CPU... same frequency, just lower voltage - saves battery life and heat. check Laptop Undervolting Thread or The "Undervolting" Guide for more.
downloading... thank you for your help!
Cool about the undervolting. Yep, I figured something to do with heat/battery. Fairly clever. You're welcome.
