    In all honesty - can I be frank with you here - I'm not entirely confident in the design of the machine. I just watched a little bit of a YouTube video of it, and I don't see any type of vent at all. And it is very thin. Just by looking at it in the video I can see it getting hot (no, not for real but what I mean is getting through).

    Plus, the maker is no longer in business or something to that effect. It could be related to lots of problems for all we know.

    Do the same exact thing for the Marvell network.

    Reboot and test. If it crashes, post the crash dump so I can verify that all running drivers are well.
    Crashed.
    I'll work on figuring out how to do the optimized defaults thing next.


    Checked msinfo32: System Model YKMD_S10_3G_ENG

    Your system does not need this, so we can get rid of it.

    Install the trial of Dameware. Open up Dameware NT Utilites (not mini remote).

    See your machine in the left side. If it is not there, add 127.0.0.1 to the favorites.

    Then go to services | remove service. Check the box to show drivers also. Then look for Intel Graphics service or similar. Uninstall it then reboot.

    Dameware - Downloads | NT Utilities and Mini Remote Control | DameWare
    I installed NT Utilities and looked for the Intel Graphics service like you said, but I didn't see anything on the list that I was sure would be what you meant. Here's a screenshot of the Intel stuff.
    I read the rest of the list looking for any kind of graphics service but didn't see anything else.

    It's true, there are no vents. No fan either. I've taken the battery out like you said.

    OH! SO CLOSE! I uninstalled IGD, rebooted, and then couldn't cause a bluescren (Hurray!). But, it disabled the GMA500 driver and sent my screen to a messed up skewed resolution (1024/786ish). Reinstalled GMA500 driver to fix resolution and BSOD came back.
    I think you've found the problem! Congratulations!

    Now what do we do about it?

    Sheesh, I just had a real forehead-slapping moment.

    A few of the latest drivers I've tried to install have given me an error that read "This operating system is not supported, setup will exit."

    I totally knew this somewhere in my subconscious but it only just surfaced: To get these drivers to work, right click, go to properties, compatibility tap, run in compatibility mode, dropdown: windows 7.

    Compatibility mode! Sheesh.

    See this post: So many metro games crash, screen res or graphics driver issue?

    Have you ran it open with a room fan blowing on it to test yet, as previously advised?
