Hi, im new to this but thought i would give it a try as nowhere else can help.
THE PROBLEM: every now and then (say 5 - 10 times a day) i get the BSOD when using my computer. the only information i can give is "BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER" there is no possible way to get all of the info as the pc reboots within seconds. This is not the only type of BSOD i get as it is giving different error messages all the time but the said one is the most common. im running Vista Home Basic, but was on XP Pro SP2 and had the same problem. i have tried windows live one care to no avail... PLEASE HELP!

OS: Microsoft Windows Vista: Home Basic

PC MODEL: Custom build- AMD Family Hammer - sempron processor



Hope thats what you need!
