Default G92 [Quadro FX 2800M]: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus

I'm using the following:
  • System: Dell M6500 Laptop with 8GB RAM
  • GPU: Quadro FX 2800M
  • OS: Debian 6.0.4 64 bit with Linux 2.6.32-5-amd64 x86_64
  • Monitor: External Dell 2707WFP
  • BIOS: Latest DELL BIOS A08 (release date 12/21/2011)
  • Drivers: I tried both NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.20.run and NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-280.13.run drivers with TwinView.

The errors are as follows which results into comple system freez (keyboard lock and blank screen on both monitors)

Code:
Feb 24 18:12:20 wks01 kernel: [22402.614720] NVRM: GPU at 0000:01:00.0 has fallen off the bus.

I tried various suggestion such as setting GPU in Persistence Mode, passing hpet=disable to kernel via grub, updated with latest Dell BIOS and so on. I also ran Dell diagnostic tools and did not found any errors. No errors found in Dell Bios logs. CPU, hdd and GPU all are running at cool temperatures. I also ran memtest (it took entier night) but did not found any ram errors. This happens onece or twice a day (today it happens five times). I'm also attching the bug report as suggested by the tool.

I hope somebody can provide me more suggestions so that I can work peacefully.
