    A couple weeks ago I updated my Dell 435TXPS to BIOS revision A16, and since then when coming out of sleep sometimes (like overnight, or a least after a few hours sleeping) I'll get the BSOD.
    Is it possible to rollback the BIOS to the previous one I had by reflashing or is that impossible?

    This is the code I get on BSOD
    STOP:0x000000F4

    No problem - that's what I'd do - reflash back to the earlier bios and see if that sorts it. Then maybe try the new one again - it may have been a bad flash.

    I think the problem was my video drivers. Updated them (ATI Radeon 4800 series) and so far so good.

    I noticed that right before it would BSOD my screen would distort/flash coming out of sleep (using a Samsung tv as a monitor) and so I checked my drivers,updated them and like I said, seems good to go now. We'll see!

    Your crash dumps could shed more light on this.
