I recently bought Inspiron 15 3537 with Windows 8. I am trying to install fresh Windows 7 instead. I followed all the instructions, yet at the end of the installation I get the blue screen with HIDCLASS.SYS error:
Someone know how to fix it? :(
I have just had same problem installing a fresh Windows 7 64 bit on an Acer PC.
I found out that the attatched USB reciever for mouse/keyboard was the reason for the error.
After removing that device I had no more problems.
The problem however will still occour if I attach the reciever again, even after completed install and update of Windows.
I just had the same symptoms on my Dell M4700 Laptop. Unfortunately, removing all USB devices and starting over did NOT solve the problem for me.
What did work was booting into the BIOS and clicking the 'Reset to Factory Defaults' button (GUI BIOS). Once the factory default settings were applied, Windows 7 x64 installed without any Blue Screens. It took me awhile to figure this out since I had not modified the BIOS settings on this laptop. I was just at the end of my rope and happened to stumble across this.
