I have a laptop which was working fine where I used to live, but the first time I tried to start it at my new place it wouldn't start up. It would get passed the log on, and sometimes even to the desktop but then I would get the infamous blue screen of death. It was a generic message suggesting I restart it in safe mode and what not. I tried, and it didn't help.
I then took the computer to MicroCenter for a diagnostic check. They could not duplicate the problem but found a few viruses and removed them. When I brought the computer back home it still wouldn't start up.
I turned off the wireless receiver on the computer before I tried starting it again and it started just fine!! But the second I turned the receiver back on, the blue screen reappeared and the computer started a loop of attempting to restart itself and shutting down.
Now here's the confusing part: I have another laptop here which works just fine with the internet, etc...(its what I'm posting this message on) AND the laptop of concern works in other locations connecting to wireless internet with the receiver on. I even tried shutting off my wireless router and starting the laptop with no luck.
Is there some sort of signal my computer is receiving at my apartment when the wireless receiver is on, which causes it to "blue screen" and shut off??
