I got the APC_INDEX_MISMATCH error again, which is the equivalent of the blue screen of death on my windows vista laptop. Of course googling found lots of information, but little of it helpful.

Here is an unhelpful message on msdn.

Some folks point to CD/DVD drive problems or RAM issues.
  • I checked the drivers on my drives and found no problem (I don't even use my DVD drive so it isn't related to its frequent use)
  • Did a memory check using the Memory Diagnostic Tool (see link below in solutions page) and found no error.
  • an old fashioned virus scan showed nothing (even though I know it isn't a virus - but hey that is always the first response for a problem, right?)
  • Checked the hotfixes to see if they installed correctly and there was no problem there.
  • Even used the Windows Driver Verifier utility, a first for me
Here is a great page for possible solutions.

The laptop each time reboots without error and there is a long gap in between times this happens. So its working fine now (although I have to hold down the power button to get it to reboot).

Gotta admit that XP Service Pack 2 was more stable than Vista. ;-(
