On a ThinkPad T42 2373-6ZG, I stroke some key a little bit hard (--nothing excessive though--) and this lead to a "blue screen" emergency shutdown.
I tried to start that computer in "Safe mode" and it seems working.
But when starting Windows XP normally, I always have some "blue screen" shutdown a few seconds after logging in.
As I had cloned the system partition a few months ago to some external hard drive, I cloned-back from it.
The system loads perfectly if I put the hard drive in another T42, a 2373-FWG.
But when I put the hard drive back in the 2373-6ZG, I still get the blue screen problem just after logging in. Moreover, I can see on the 2373-6ZG the "Administrator" account which is not listed on the 2373-FWG.
I assume that on the 2373-6ZG, Windows calls some machine specific stuff, which would be ignored on the other machine. And this stuff probably makes the system crash.
But which could it be ?
Thanks for your help.

Run memtest 86 from a bootable CD and see what happens.
