Even undocking my Dell Latitude D630 from my PR01X model docking station properly, my laptop still freezes, beeps once, then goes to a completely blue screen with no error codes...

Even undocking my Dell Latitude D630 from my PR01X model docking station properly, my laptop still freezes, beeps once, then goes to a completely blue screen with no error codes...is there a registry setting or something that needs to be changed to stop this from happening?  We are running XP Pro on our office machines as well. Any input would be greatly appeciated.

Is it able to boot at all?

Oh yeah, it absolutely boots.  I have to hard boot it after all of the shenanigans that I listed above after I have undocked it.

So the event triggering the crash is the undocking of the laptop from the docking station?

How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

That is correct, and it happens whether I use the Start menu undock option, or the physical button on the docking station itself.  I am properly undocking, so it doesn't make any sense.

Had the same issue with a Dell in the past. I fixed the problem on by updating the BIOS and updating the chipset on the other.
I've also read that by disabling LPT and Com ports in the BIOS this has resolved the same issue.

Well, I gained some insight to this issue...it's directly related to a usbhub.sys file, I just don't know which one...even if I did, not sure where to go from there to fix it.

Figured it out, found which usbhub.sys correlated to the dock itself by process of elimination, copied and replaced existing profile of the usbhub.sys with a known working file to the drivers folder and dll cache folder of the sytem32 folder and the BSoD stopped.  Thanks to all for your ideas.

Because it was by my process of elimination, trial and error that I figured out how to correct the issue, and what was causing it.
