that is something only Dell can answer ;-) 
there are a couple of posts out there about this issue and I remember they all ended up with either applying (re-applying) FW and/or drivers or a hardware replacement. 

btw the log clearly states 'firmware fatal error', so FW would be a good thing to start with.

good luck!
