Blue Screen

Specs: XP SP2, T7200/ 2GB

Well I recently started getting a blue screen when my PC starts up. From what I can see before it auto-restarts is there was an error in ohdusb.sys. I am guessing this is something usb related but there is no usb devices hooked up at the time of boot. It will give me a blue screen twice and on the third time around it goes through but windows explorer crashs and I just hit close and then my PC runs normally. Is this a bad driver?

Hello,

I would reboot the system and insert the windows xp cd-rom and start a re-install repair of your operating system. You can find many sites that will walk you through the windows xp repair process. It won't harm your current operating system configuration or installed programs. Also, you might want to see if there are any newer motherboard drivers for your system. Same goes for your graphics driver. Maybe someone on this site will also help with information.

Good luck,

It's not that hard to do this.

ohdusb.sys? If you meant hidusb.sys it sure sounds like a bad driver. More info is given in following link.

To have XP display the error message instead of rebooting:

1. Click Start, and then right-click My Computer.
2. Click Properties.
3. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
4. Under System failure, click to clear the Automatically restart check box.
5. Click OK, and then click OK.

A 'Repair' install might fix the problem. It will remove all the Microsoft updates. That 'might' be a good thing, because if you haven't made any changes to your system, it's 'possible' that one of the auto updates caused the problem.

Ok well I just reboot in safemode and it seems to be working fine so my guess is its something wrong with a startup program. The thing about my video drivers is I have never been successful in updating my display drivers. This is on my laptop ASUS S96J with an ATI Radeon Mobility X1600. Its not a Microsoft update because I have auto-update turned off. I tried searching google for ohdusb.sys and nothing came up so im guessing its just something stupid with my laptop. I will try to update the mobo drivers. Thanks for the help guys...I will post back the results.

Ok I did all that and turned off all startup programs, but I still get the error. I guess I am gonna have to do a repair.

I have the same problem with my compaq presario 1700T and still trying find the root cause. I am thinking of backing up my data and doing a windows update. (I am able to work ok in safe mode)

I found the problem with my computer and most probably you have the same issue: Infection by Rootkit.Buso
Google for msmapibx32.exe and if you find this file in you %System% folder that confirms the infection. Also see http://www.threatexpert.com/report....

I've searched forever with ohdusb.sys, did all sorts of unnecessary stuff but the root cause was right there in front of my face running everytime i reboot - msmapibx32.exe
This teaches a lesson to those of us who fail to keep the system updated :-) Hopefully no one encounters this problem
