    Has anyone ever seen this or have any thoughts as to what could cause
    this:

    A friend of mine has a Nextel phone (Motorola) and it was sitting next
    to his Dell D400 laptop. When someone called him, his PC screen went
    blank and the system crashed. He could not do anything but restart.
    I aslo have a D400, so we tried it with my laptop, same exact thing.
    I tried this with my Verizon Samsung phone and it did not trigger.

    Anyone of have any thoughts about this? Or even better can you try it
    yourself with your PC and see what it does. I am curious to see what
    it does...

    Thanks.

    Re: Nextel Phone crashes PC???

    Are these laptops a bit older like 700~900mhz processors? if so that is
    why, Nextel uses freq's in the 800mhz range, and if the phone is that
    close to it, it will effect them. If not then no guess :|

    Actually, these laptops are brand new 1.7 GHz Centrinos. I also
    thought of the frequency thing, and I knew cell phones are in the 900
    MHz range, so that would not be the issue... very strange.

    I'm probably barking up the wrong tree but when I set my nextel by the
    monitor for my desktop and it rings or aquires a new signal my monitors
    starts flashing. If I set my t731 which is USCellular next to it nothing
    happens. So it's not the fact that your processers are on the same freq.
    it's that the laptops are crashing due to the fact that the screens a
    flickering because of the freq. response from the nextel's.

    I get the same problem with my NEXTEL also. I think it is a known problem.
    When my NEXTEL is next to my monitor, it flickers like crazy. Also, if you
    have the NEXTEL next to speakers, they will make a ticking sound.
