    Strange Fujitsu Laptop issue

    This is a really odd problem:
    A teacher has a new Fujitsu laptop and from the start it has been behaving oddly.
    Every now and again it just restarts and at other times it loses the wireless

    But - and here's the kicker-

    The restart thing NEVER happens at home. She had it at home for the whole summer and it didn't restart once. Brought it back in on Monday and within an hour it had restarted four times!

    It happens with the charger plugged in, or without. She uses the same charger everywhere

    Has ANYONE any ideas??

    We had something like this with a teacher laptop - not Fujitsu but would blue screen often when he went home but was fine at school.

    Was the wireless driver which caused the issue - even after a re-image we had to try several drivers before we found one which wouldn't blue screen and restart the machine. I'd try searching for a different driver for the wireless card and see if this makes any difference.
    I might be completely wrong but worth a try!

    Thanks
    The laptop came pre-loaded so I didnt touch the drivers - but I will have a look.

    We too had strange issue with the wireless dropping. Reinstalled the drivers and thought i'd fixed it but we got a call again.
    Only recently did a colleague find updated drivers on the Fujitsu web site. They so seem to have done the trick.

    Sadly, the issue is still happening even with new wireless drivers - it seems to be happening a bit less often but that doesn't help me much at all
    Any other ideas, people?

    When its plugged in at school is there any thing like mice, keyboard, interactive whiteboard plugged in, worth using it in another classroom and see if it does it then, and bring that known working one in and test incase one of these piece of hardware has a fault.
