Hi all.

I'm getting BSOD's quite often. They seem to come from different causes although, USB.SYS seems to pop up most as a cause.

I'm not doing anything particular when they happen although they do seem to happen when my PC is somewhat "stressed". (Gaming, Transcoding etc.)

I've tried looking at the debugging info myself but it all looks Greek to me lol.

I'm on the latest BIOS and have updated all Chipset and Video drivers. I've also put my overclock back to stock but it still happens.

As a last resort I hope one of you knowledgeable people could decipher the dump for me and save me the need to format. Here is a link to the dump file (I don't know if I'm allowed to post the text?):- http://min.us/lbqInrHlkv65lT

Thank you for your time.

if the bsod is often different reasons even though usb pops up a lot, this would point me toward a memory stick slot issue, i would first run a memtest, with 8gb it will take a while.

or you could remove all but one stick of ram, use the machine, try each stick in each slot, this will help verify if you have a bad stick or a bad slot.

also run a full disk check

download speedfan and monitor all temps, if you have been overclocking it could be any part of your system that is causing issues, however memory/disk/temps are always a good place to start.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

Hi Prince and thanks for your time.

I forgot to mention I have already run Memtest (it took about 90 minutes) and all was fine.

Disk check and sfc/scannow have also been run. Again, no problems.

I have AIDA64 running and my temps are fine.

Thanks again.

Just an update for you as I have fixed my problem.

When I said I had put my overclock back to stock, I still had the Voltage set at a manual figure (1.320). I gave it a bit more juice (1.340) and all is well. I played BF3 for over 4 hours straight with no problems.

So it seems if your computer BSOD's are due to lack of Vcore, it throws up many different errors.

Thank you for your time.
