    I do hope someone can help me with this because I can find nothing anywhere on the internet about this.

    My Acer TravelMate C110 works fine everywhere EXCEPT in my house. If I turn it on in my house or on my drive, it just goes into a total blue screen crash when Windows (XP) starts to run up.

    If I then take it up the road a few miles it boots up perfectly and works perfectly in every way (including wireless network access). I have used it five miles from home (in the UK) .. 50 miles .. and 5000 miles (in the USA) with no problem.

    I can only assume, with my very limited understanding of these things, that a wireless network near my home is causing this. I further assume that during the Windows boot-up, an .exe file runs which looks for networks? Can I isolate this, or stop it from running?

    I am getting a bit tired of sitting in a layby five miles from home, and people are wondering what I am doing!

    Thank you.
