Windows 7: BSOD on New Sandy Bridge Dell XPS 8300

BSOD on New Sandy Bridge Dell XPS 8300

I was installing drivers and updates after receiving and wiping my new XPS system from Dell and stepped away from the PC for a couple of hours while things downloaded. I came back to a black screen with a mouse cursor that I was able to move. Then the screen switched to a BSOD and restarted with an error code of 1033. Here are the system specs and the .zip file requirement from the BSOD Posting Instructions thread:

Dell XPS 8300
Sandy Bridge Core i7 CPU @ 3.4GHz
8GB of DDR3 RAM
1.5GB 7200 RPM HDD
Newly installed GTX 460 1GB GFX Card
460w PSU
Dual Layer DVD Burner


Is Windows 7 Home Premium
- x64
- Windows 7 Home Premium
- full retail version

- What is the age of system (hardware)? Build date is unknown, but it's new to me from Dell.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) Brand new.

Any help you guys can provide I'd really appreciate.

Update!

Update: Just came back from dinner and the computer was asleep just like before and the exact same thing happened. It seems whenever the computer goes to sleep and then I wake it up it gives me the BSOD and a restart. Any ideas?

Any news, superherofive?

I'm having the same problem. Whenever my 3 week old XPS 8300 is put in sleep mode for more than a few minutes I too get the BSOD when I wake it up.

I've worked the a Dell phone Tech, then his supervisor, without luck.

I've also tried installing the latest video drivers and even reinstalling Windows 7 from the partitioned hard drive. No luck.

We have almost identical systems:
Dell XPS 8300
Sandy Bridge Core i7 CPU @ 3.4GHz
8GB of DDR3 RAM
1.5GB 7200 RPM HDD
AMD Radeon HD 5700 Video Card
460w PSU
Dual Layer DVD Burner
