Dell Inspiron 5515 BSOD

Dell Insprion 5515.  

Frequent, and I mean today alone: 5 - 7 BSOD errors.  I have wiped and reinstalled Windows 10 Home, upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, then upgraded to Windows 11 Pro, twice.  Updated drivers, ran Windows Update, it's all current.  Ran Dell Support Assist.  It finds no issues with hardware or out-of-date drivers.  Yet, I continue to get BSOD errors. 

Below is the analysis of the crash dumps of the past several BSOD errors.  While this report is only of the several that have occured today, it frequently mentions thermal issues.  I don't know what to do to fix any of this.  My wife has an identical model laptop (they were bought at the same time, same model, same configuration).  She has had *no* BSODs.  I have run the quick scan by Dell Support Assist, and the extended scan.  It finds no issues.  Yet, the BSODs continue.

You have reinstalled Windows numerous times with no effect. You could try running in safe mode for a while to see if the BSOD returns but I would suggest downloading and running Memtest86 available at their site here. If during the test you see any errors, and I mean even 1 error, then that is a memory fail.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I will give that a shot and see what I can find out.  I *have* run both the quick tests from Dell Support Assist, as well as the extended tests, and they don't report any issues.  If Memtest86 does a more extensive test than those, it will be worth a shot.

I downloaded and installed MemTest86 as per the directions, booted up the USB, and let it run it's course.  It found no errors at all.  The tests ran for a few hours, and didn't report one error.  If I could find where it saved the test report results, I'd post it here, but it was about 4:30 AM local time when I saw it had finished, and didn't make note of where the results file was saved.

I have followed all the offered suggestions, (update Windows, update drivers, scan hardware for errors using Dell Support Assist as well as the diagnostic routines in the BIOS, run Memtest86 to scan for memory errors.  No errors reported, drivers up to date, BIOS up to date.  Yet, I still have BSODs.

I need to get this issue resolved.  I can not depend on this laptop for any serious work, as I can not depend on it to stay running without interrupting me with a BSOD.  The latest was this morning at church as we were setting up to live stream the morning service.  It crashed, and I had to run home (thankfully, only a 3 minute drive from the church) and grab my wife's identical laptop, to do the livestream with.  No issues with that one.  It's not been upgraded to Windows 11 yet, but it's identical in all hardware specifications to my laptop.

1165

Well, I am officially done with Dell systems for my personal use.  I've never had issues like I've had with this laptop.  I have wiped and re-installed Windows multiple times, and continue to get BSOD errors.  I tried a totally clean install from a freshly downloaded from Microsoft Windows 11 setup file, and got BSODs.  So, I downloaded a fresh setup file for Windows 10 from Microsoft, and was encouraged, because I got through a whole day without a BSOD.  Nope! It BSOD'd on me this morning.

I have tried all, and I repeat *all* of the recommendations offered here and through private messages from Dell Support, and *continue* to have BSOD errors.  I've uploaded the memory dump files for Tech Support to analyze.  They say it's a software issue.  I ran it in Safe Mode, with no issues.  They say again it's a software issue.  So, as a last resort. I made sure I had the latest Windows 11 installation files downloaded direct from Microsoft's web site.  BSOD.  So, my last resort was to download the latest setup files for Windows 10 and install (again, a clean install on a wiped drive (blew all partitions away on the drive, and installed to a "clean" drive.  Nope!  BSOD again this morning.

I'm done.

1126

And the fun continues.  Now, my wife's *identical* model laptop has developed the same issues.  Multiple crashes per day.  She hasn't upgraded to Windows 11 yet, and is not running anything other than mainstream software (Microsoft Office 365, LibreOffice, etc.) and yet I saw four crashes yesterday in the span of about 40 minutes.

I don't know what the problem is with this particular model of laptop, but congratulations, Dell, Inc:  You have soured me on purchasing any laptops from you ever again.  And no, I am not satisfied in any way, shape, form, or fashion with the support I have gotten related to this issue.

Not that it helps but I have the same laptop and the same issues.   I suspect we are not alone.

Multiple BSOD per day and they seem to vary so much it's impossible to pinpoint the issue.   I've tried the built in Dell hardware diagnostics, memtest86, Windows Memory Diagnostics, chkdsk, the windows driver verifier, etc.  Nothing shows up on the hardware side.

I have tried a fresh install of Windows 10 and 11, with and without any Dell software and the issue persists.  I have tried using the Dell recovery tools to do a fresh install.  Still the same issues.  I can't help but think it is a driver issue.  Dell Support have told me it is not covered by the warranty, and I have to pay to get support for that.  This seems unacceptable that a machine cannot even run with a default install of Windows.  

I've been a Dell customer for years, but this has made up my mind about ever buying again or recommending to others.  Dell please fix this.

I'm wondering if it's related to the AMD chipset?  I don't really know.  In any event, we bought identical laptops.  16GB of ram, 1TB NVME SSD drives, AMD's Ryzen 5700, I believe it is.  I don't know if the Intel version of this system is having the same issues.  But like yourself, I am soured on Dell hardware now, and that took some doing.  At my recommendation, my employer's dental practice is running exclusively Dell desktops and laptops.  We have a Lenovo file server, but the rest of the office is running on Dell systems.  We have even had a couple of Dell file servers.  That's how deeply we've been in the Dell ecosystem.  Well, not any more!
