I purchased my system in November 2010 and few times a day I get a blue screen crash with my Pavilion Elite HPE. I have a GT 420 video card. This is a typical report:
BugcheckCode 184 BugcheckParameter1 0xfffffa80095074d0 BugcheckParameter2 0xfffff880031ddfc0 BugcheckParameter3 0x0 BugcheckParameter4 0x0 SleepInProgress false PowerButtonTimestamp 0
Every crash has bugcheckcode 184.
On December 21st, my video card fan started running at a high speed. After being on for a few minutes, my monitor would go dark. HP support determined that the GT420 video card was bad and ordered a replacement, however the card was on backorder.
In the interim, I purchased a gt 220 from Best Buy. While this card was installed in my system I never once received a blue crash or any type of problem.
After approximately 3 weeks, my new gt 420 arrived. I switched out my gt 220. Now, I'm back to several blue screen crashes every day, with bugcheck code 184.
Any help would be appreciated.

Had the same problem...the new motherboard DID help. God I miss XP !
I have always been a supporter of HP, but I believe this one is my last ....(bought in July 2011), and I plan on referring all of my friends and family to look elsewhere as well.
I know that the problem is Microsoft, but HP uses there product, and I KNOW that HP is aware of all the problems, especially the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. HP should demand a fix from Microsoft, because HP knows just as well that they are selling a faulty product. VERY bad business for BOTH companies....and yes, I know......why should THEY care, once we buy their product, and have our money.
