A couple of days ago, I reported a strange problem with keyboard focus on my laptop. It's all better now.
I got a couple of blue screens last night, both of which indicated a problem in the wireless. I booted back up with the wireless card pulled out, enabled my wired network port and plugged in, uninstalled the wireless, downloaded the latest drivers from the manufacturer and reinstalled them, rebooted. No more blue screens, and also no more focus problems! It seems that something in the network driver was conflicting with whatever mechanism in the OS directs the keyboard focus to the proper window. That's pretty freaky.

Well, so much for the ease of HW detection/installation under Windows vs. Linux (well, IF it's supported at all...).
But I have experienced a problem of similar kind. On Fujitsu-Siemens subnotebook (with a touch screen) had a BSOD on the touchscreen driver just after a personal firewall update. Would never expect such strange dependencies...
