Blue Screen - smbusdh.sys?

07-10-2005, 02:15 AM

There was a previous posting on this topic, but it never seemed to have been
resolved. I am getting a BSOD on my thinkpad t43 laptop when I close the
screen and the laptop is unplugged. I have it set up so it does not shutdown
when I close it.

Tracking down the system logs, I seem to get an stop code 0x00000096.
Dumpchk says it is likely from smbusdh.sys, an ibm-provided driver. When I
use verifier on this driver, the comp boots up just fine.

Jarrett Goetz, in a previous thread, asked the user if he/she was using the
thinkpad client security chip. I do have mine enabled, and am using it. He
also mentioned that he might open a ticket with ibm about this, but there was
no word as to any resolution.

Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm in the field right
now, so i can't use ibm's support to call me back and walk me through this.
I doubt they would come up with a solution anyway.
