    When I swap HDs on two exact same laptops I get a BSOD on one but OK on the other. bothe laptops are Dell Precision M2400 and HDs are OEM HDs for that model. Any ideas or suggestions

    If laptops is absolutely same, then most probably SATA controller settings in BIOS are different. In one laptop you have IDE in other AHCI. Result > BSOD.
    Change settings on both laptops to IDE and problem should disappear.
