Hello Cruise,

 

what did you do when it did happen? 

Have you recently installed anything?

Hi Andreas,

 

Thanks for offering your help.

 

My T60P BSOD intermintently, I can do doing anything, I have not observed a pattern yet. :(

 

What are the information u need to diagnose the issue. Is this a known issue ? 

 

I have not installed any new software or driver.

 

It would be great if you can provide me with leads of any sort so tt I can get back to work smoothly.

 

Confused.

Cruise

Hello,

 

have you recently added one ram stick?

 

Try a complete system test, with PcDoctor or Lenovo System Tool Box (you´ll find it a Lenovo support pages).

:(

 

Nope, there isnt any additonal RAM, I configured it as a 3 GB system when I bought from Lenovo.

 

I did a complete test with PC Doctor, and it would appear that my system BSOD ( approx 60% of the time) when it is testing the wireless adapter. 

 

I have since reinstalled the wireless adapter but....the problem did not go away.

 

hmmm......any other suggestions ?

 

- 11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter 7.6.0.96

- Intel(R) Pro 1000/ PL Network Connection 9.12.30.0

- Access Connection Build is 5.02

I have been looking at other posts and one other user encountered the issue of having BSOD. He is using a dual screen with the "latest" driver from FireGL. He resolved it by rolling back his display driver as there seems to be an issue with the latest driver.

 

I am currently using dual screen as well, and my  ATI Catalyst CC Version is2007.0621.175.28924

 

Do u think this could be an issue ?

 

I will stop using dual screen to test it out.

 

Please let me know if u have any other clues.
