G560 Wireless Freezes laptop only when at University

2011-11-15, 14:02 PM

I have searched the forums and haven't seen anything quite like my situation.I have a G560 laptop.Got it the thursday and by saturday i got 3 BSOD  and 5 or so computer freezes(had to firce shutdown).I then realised the BSOD's and freezes only occur when I'm at university.At home nothing happens..on further analysis ,i eliminated the charger cable.It only freezes at school when wireless is on.I used an ethernet cord for hours at school...went fine...as soon as I turned on wifi,,it froze.So i changed drivers...nothing worked.....checked drivers on lenovo's site...when installing ,it says No Matched Device Driver.Im running windows 7 64 bit.

hey JaMMa,

ensure that all your drivers are as updated as this link over here : http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=67873


If they are and if the problem happens again and only in your University's wifi and not in any other location such as a cafe with wifi or at home,

i recommend contacting the U's IT dept and also check with your uni mates if they ever had the same issue as you.

you may need to update modem's firmware but under these conditions it doesn't sound it's possible.
