BSOD STOP: 7B 0xf79f1528

Specs: Windows XP Home, P4 512MB

I had 2 problems with a BSOD that I could not find the specific 0xf79f1528 octet in any searches. The most recent I was able to solve and hope my solution will be of help to others.

The problem was with the USB port on the front panel: a USB mouse had been removed, taking the housing of the USB port with it. My client forgot to mention it to me... Once I removed the USB front panel connection from the motherboard, the PC booted fine.

First post - hope it helps!

7B 0xf79f1528 most likely will not bring up anything when you search the internet. If you happen to have taken out of content the last two characters - 7B - from BSOD STOP: 0x0000007B, then the following troubleshooting guide should help.

Thanks very much, xpuser!

I've usually been able to search on the second octet and find more detailed info - which is why I posted the complete number instead of just the 7B 0xf7 which gives me 3600+ hits... I only was able to figure this one out after reading the wikpedia pages on bsod, which I was in the middle of, when my client emailed me about the mouse issue!!

If the guts of the port were pulled out that would indicate the mouse may have been forced into the port the wrong way. That controller is no doubt fried as you suspect. The things some users do is beyond me.
