My Toughbook CF-29 has just started causing grief with a BSOD every time it's switched on.
The OS loads and icons are displayed on the screen as normal but while the drive is still 'whirring' the BSOD appears:-
It's a good few years old now - I was worried it might be the HD (scandisk picked up a few bad clusters), but after a day of faffing I finally sussed it out. It's only the Intel Proset WiFi drivers!
I noticed that when I got it to load windows - it always crashed when the wireless was trying to get IP address etc.
I went to the toughbook driver site and noticed in the description of the proset drivers that it mentioned fixing BSOD issue... I reckon it is a problem with the old drivers trying to lock onto a Wireless-N network and failing in an epic way.
So - that's my top tip for the day if you are getting BSOD on one of these old netbooks.
