Dell laptop, Windows 7 and "Blue Screen" Issue

    Below is the configuration of my Dell laptop:

    MS Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit
    Intel Core2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz, 4 GB RAM, NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M

    Each time I power the machine after hibernation, I encounter a blue
    screen with the following error message:

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Unexpected shutdown ...

    I tried to do some troubleshooting and removed a Cisco VPN client
    program that had not previously installed properly. During the removal
    of this program, I encountered another blue screen with the following
    message:

    APC_INDEX_MISMATCH
    ....

    At this stage, I am running the machine in "Safe Mode with
    Networking".

    The machine does not boot normally (i.e., safe mode turned off) and
    automatically prefers to go into "blue screen" mode, leaving a poor
    user experience.

    Can anyone recommend how to resolve this issue and help out this "poor
    user"? Depending on how hard I have to work to resolve this issue, I
    may switch to Linux :-(

    Thanks,

    Ramu

    Some machines just have trouble coming out of Hibernation (how does it
    handle Standby?). See if there is a newer nVidia driver.
