Up until recently, my wireless worked just fine. I would sometimes disable the wireless card if the wifi connectivity was bad, and use my built-in EVDO cellular modem instead.
The wireless is currently disabled, and for several days now, attempting to enable the wireless will cause the computer to crash. If I enable the wireless card, I get the so-called "blue screen of death," telling me that there has been a buffer overflow. Then my computer reboots.
I can't think of any software that I've installed super recently.
Has the hardware probably gone bad?
Or is this likely a software issue?
How should I go about troubleshooting?

Is there some kind of diagnostic that I could run that does *NOT* require me to enable the wifi driver?
I tried using "PC Doctor," but it can't tell me anything unless the wifi driver is enabled.
If the integrated wifi (Intel 4965AGN) has failed, I'll let Lenovo deal with it. I just wish I could be sure that was the problem.
