USB devices causing PC to blue screen

1630 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  dai
Am having the same issue - any USB device when plugged in gives me a blue screen and restarts immediately. Too short time frame to capture the blue screen contents.

I tried uninstalling the drivers for USB in the device manager. I only have 4 USB ports but I see 12 USB Controllers (not sure if this is normal). I can uninstall all but one - when I do the last one , it throws the same blue screen and restarts - I think that is the rogue port - it reads as
Intel(R) 82801G(ICH7 Family) USB2 Enchanced Host Controller-27CC

Any suggestions ? am stuck !

Thank you
