  1. I have IBM Thinkpad T41,
    Windows XP
    (I have tried Windows 7, formatting C, win xp sp2, usb extention lead and then inserting usb drive)
    My system freezes as soon as I insert USB Flash drive or when I turn ON the Bluetooth.

    With a fresh install of Windows this USB Bluetooth trouble happens? If so the laptops motherboard may be bad. Have you tried removing the laptops battery and inserting the USB device only with AC power? Bad batteries can cause many odd issues

    First, are you sure that you have the latest version of your drivers? If not, please have the latest update of your drivers. Then, try the blue tooth after you updated your drivers.
