I have an "NEC" PCI card that gives my old m'board USB 2.0. I've had some crashes, when trying to access or copy to thumb drives I have plugged into the ports available on this card. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Today, the system crashed when I tried to copy two 300 megabyte video files over from one of my hard drives onto the thumb drive. It's done this before, always related to using one or more thumb drives on this card.
In the instructions for the card, it states that if there are problems with freezing, one should plug a power cable into the card internally, where there is something like the connector that supplies the 3.5" floppy drive. I did so a while ago, and it doesn't seem to do much to stabilize the card.
I did not get a screenshot of the blue screen, but it gave some error number, and mentioned that it was doing a memory dump. I don't know where to find that file, or how to interpret a dump file.
I don't know if this site has a place to scan the computer, to get the specs, but I'm using a home-built computer, circa 2000 or so, with 2 Gigs of RAM, a 1.8 Gigahertz P4, on a Shuttle MV42N m'board, with onboard video and audio. My OS is WinXP Pro, sp3
