It's been doing it on Windows 7 x64 Pro beforehand.
Have tried Lenovo System Update provided drivers and Intel latest from their web site to no avail - issue persists.
Tempted to throw Windows 8.1 x64 off MSDN on it and see what happens. Failing that will grab an Atheros card and stick it in.
Before I do, has anyone seen this or is there a solution as I really don't want to move a mountain to solve it if possible?

That sort of problem shows up sometimes (not just on 5100 cards) with flakey WiFi routers. What router are you using?pointyhat wrote:is there a solution....
Try rolling back the Intel driver.
I have a Draytek router. It occurs on three different networks plus I wouldn't expect a router to be able to BSOD windows remotely - that's a pretty big FAIL.
Have tried three driver versions since to no avail.
This most commonly happens with a bad hard disk. The disk can't report a state, the disk driver holds control. The first thing the user notices is that the mouse freezes, followed shortly by the bluescreen.
The appropriate diagnostic is to replace the wireless card. You don't need to change the brand, and the T400 will not allow another card that is not on the whitelist specific to the model.
Not only that no device driver should panic the system - this particular STOP suggests the driver or DMA is writing over kernel RAM somewhere which is definitely a firmware or driver bug.
I'm going to patch the whitelist in the BIOS (pretty easy with a hex editor) and stick an Atheros card in and see what happens.
