Is this not correct, that the PC was delivered w/W7 installed from Dell?

Maxseven you are correct the computer came pre-installed with Windows 7 from Dell. Though it is interesting what zigzag points out about the driver's age compared with the Windows 7 release date.. I suppose Dell must have been testing on beta versions?

I have some good news to report. It *appears* that my wireless/sleep mode issues have been fixed. Many thanks to Jonathan for pointing out the Broadcom driver. Though at first it seemed to still exhibit the same BSOD behavior, after a reboot it seems that sleep mode is once again functioning as expected.

My only remaining question is whether or not my wireless router may have in fact played a part in this as well. It's an old D-Link model and I had rebooted the router shortly before I realized the issue was fixed. So it is possible that the issue may recur at some point in the future. If so, I will return here and post an update. In the meantime I consider this issue solved. Thank you all for your time and help!

Glad to hear it gr8spangle. I suppose it COULD be the router (wacky things do happen, and we may have actually seen it before), though drivers are more likely.

Anyway, if the problem returns, reboot the router and see what happens!

Sure, Dell had advance access to W7 from the rest of us. I'd join their forum if I were you and press them for a fix.

I've seen alot of problems with Sleep, though mostly they go away after a reboot rather than resulting in a BSOD. I can only add that if you do NOT use the All In One's Wake-on-LAN capability (I use WOL all the time cuz I also use VNC to check-on computers at other locations in my house) then go to the adapter properties and turn that off.
