We are having a problem in one of our new offices.  Three people have laptops that get 1-5 Blue Screen of Death each day.  They only get it while in the office and while they are on a docking station.  There are a dozen desktop computers in the office as well that do NOT get blue screens.  Just the laptops and just when they are docked.  When they take them home at night they do not get blue screens.  It is happinging on a Dell d630 and 2 Dell m4300's.  Is there a driver or something that is only active when docked that needs to be updated or does anyone have any ideas?  All are XP sp2.

Are they connected to a network?
or any other external devices at that time?

They are connected to the network. Keyboard, mouse, Cisco IP phone.

you should try without these devices connected to see what device is causing the error.
try one by one if you can.
