Laptop does not work in a specific location

Last Modified: 2013-11-17
Ok this is the most bizzar issue I have had in my 20 + years of computer support. I have a client that has a laptop that does not work in his house. It works fine in my office or other locations...NO not the wireless the entire PC blue screens at his house and works just fine at other locations, as long as it is 1-2 blocks from his house. My laptop (a HP NC6400) works fine at his house, and he has other wireless machines at his house that work just fine. (Connected to the wireless internet no blue screens work just fine)

no this was not a one time thing it has been repeatedly duplicated, and I even booted this computer up before I got to his house and walked it into his kitchen where it blue screened.

Very puzzled but not high
