FBSD-7-B2 Freeze

I am experiencing fairly consistent system freezes which seem to 
coincide with using the ndis driver and nvidia driver at the same time. 
  I had worst problems using the nvidia binary driver, but I did also 
experience a freeze one time with the xorg nv driver, which I am now 
using.  Sometimes the wireless card works extremely slowly when I am 
using the nvidia driver.

I have a Dell Latitude D800.  I enclose dmesg.  Any advice on how to 
either further diagnose, or fix the problem will be welcome.
