Hope someone can help me here.
Here's what happened:
Things worked find for years. I connected a MP3 player and system asked for a reboot. Upon reboot, I got BSOD. It didn't matter what option I used -- safe mode with cli, diag, any and all. I was giving up and resigned to have to do a full re-install. Then I happened to boot the system to find out the particulars of the BSOD when <surprise, surprise> it came up. Everything seemed okay. Then I inserted the Msoft wheel mouse optical USB mouse. Immediately I got the BSOD, with almost no information. The only non-boilerplate stuff I got was this:
*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc000001D, 0xF8C098E6, 0xFC09738, 0xF8C094E4)
As best I can tell, I get this on any boot if the mouse is plugged in (including safe mode cli). If the mouse isn't plugged in it seems to act normally.
I assume it's some driver somewhere.
So here are my questions:
1. Is there a particular driver that comes in when the Wheel Mouse Optical USB and PS2 Compatible is connected to the USB port (btw this is a low speed USB, not version 2)? If so, how do I remove it without creating too much havoc in the system?
2. Any other suggestions at all????
Thanks in advance
