My laptop - dell - latest drivers is giving me a big problem
Upon hibernation or restart it gives me the following error 0x0000411 Fatal error  \hiberfil.sys.

I tried all - re-starting and even reformatting the drive.

It keeps trying to "take me back" to a previously saved hibernation state 10 days ago.

OS is windows 7 and drive is solid state.

    Press space when the screen shows the resuming from hibernation.  It'll then give you the option to load the hibernation file or delete it and boot fresh.

    if the above doesn't fix the problem.  It deals with removing and recreating (if desired) the hibernation file.

    Could the fact that it's a solid state drive be the cause?
