Windows 7: Dell Inspirion won't go to college

Dell Inspirion won't go to college

I have a weird BSOD problem here. I installed Windows 7 64 on my daughters Dell Inspirion 1525 over the Christmas break. The machine is still running all original equipment including 4 gig of ram, intel wireless card and the integrated Intel graphics. I run AVG free and Zone Alarm, both latest versions.

It has been running rock solid at home on my wireless network. It runs fine at her friends house off campus. As soon as she takes it in the dorm, it BSODs upon boot up. I had it home (where it boots fine) and double checked all drivers and flashed the BIOS to the latest version from Dell. Back to college and same result. I had her disable the wireless card and it booted. Plugged it in to an Ethernet port and it runs for a while then BSOD again. We changed out AVG for Avast but it still is getting the blue screen. I have attached a picture of the BSOD screen and the only minidump file I have managed to find so far. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Fixed (I think)

Well, I updated all of the drivers you listed that I could and was still getting the BSOD. I looked at the USB driver listed as the culprit you identified for me and it was the latest version. I could not find it directly linked to a device in the System Manager so I was kind of at a loss as to what to try next. As it was clearly related to being connected to the universities network I did a little more research and found a few posts that folks were having some problems with Zone Alarm on Windows7 so I un-installed it. The machine has been rock solid ever since (3 days now). Now my only concern is leaving her laptop connected to a university network with only Windows firewall for protection. Yikes!
