VGASave is generic VGA driver used by Windows Vista and Windows 7. This is used if no compatible drivers are installed. Hibernation is not allowed when using this driver. You should install the VGA drivers that came with your netbook or download the suitable drivers from Dell's web site.

Here is Dell' driver page for Del Latitude 2100 for Windows 7 : http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/...anConsent=False

For the record, the manufacturer's (NVidia etc) version of VgaSave is certainly installed, it's just not permitted to run in safe mode, from where the user was no doubt trying to reenable hibernation. Hiberfil.sys must be created with a place to store the video RAM state in the form understood by the non-legacy VgaSave driver running in normal mode so that hibernation works. In all running states, normal or safe, some VgaSave driver must be running, and the legacy version is basically a placeholder whose only function is to reply when called upon, "I don't really save the video ram state". MS was not going to support a hiberfil.sys that covers legacy safe mode as that would be an unnecessary complication. So hibernation can only be reenabled while running in normal mode with the manufacturer's VgaSave driver loaded. As usual, the error messages given by MS are short on the 'whys'.
