Recently I've been getting a BSOD that I'm having trouble fixing. Let me give you some basic info first:
Sony Vaio VPCF-115fm
Intel core i7 Q720 @1.6ghz
Windows 7 HP SP1
Bug check string: BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER
Bug check code: 0x000000fe
Parameter 1: 00000000`00000008
Parameter 2: 00000000`00000006
Parameter 3: 00000000`00000005
Parameter 4: fffffa80`08a2fb20
Caused by driver: usbhub.sys
Caused by address: usbhub.sys+12a60
Crash Address: ntoskrnl.exe+75bc0
Directly attached USB devices:
M-Audio Fasttrack pro external sound card
7 Port USB hub
USB devices attached to the hub:
DJ Tech tools midifighter classic (midi controller)
Ableton Launchpad (midi controller)
Numark Mixtrack Pro (DJ controller)
Logiteck M305 wireless mouse receiver
Laptop cooling pad
I noticed that just about every time I have my hub attached and close the lid / put the computer to sleep, I get this BSOD. Sometimes, it will BSOD randomly while I'm in the middle of working on something. I also noticed that if I restart my laptop and do not use the hub or any of the devices attached to it, no BSOD. This leads me to assume the problem stems from the usb hub or one of the devices attached to it.
I've been researching how to fix this for some time now, and stumbled upon a Microsoft article that describes the issue I'm having. The article can be found at: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974410
Basically, the article says that the bluescreen I'm getting can be caused by a race condition in the Usbccgp component. It also says "This issue may occur if you attach a USB composite device that supports the Selective Suspend feature to the computer". The article provides a hotfix, but I have downloaded it and ran it already and it says the update does not apply to my computer. I am getting the correct, windows 7 home premium x64 hotfix. There is also a workaround listed. The workaround involves modifying certain registry keys, which I have no problem doing if I could find them.
The registry entries that need modified are located at:
“VID&PID” is the Vendor ID and Product ID of the USB device.
“InstanceID” is an instance of the USB device.
However, I am unable to find the registry entry because I cannot find the proper VID & PID.
I really need help getting this solved. I am supposed to be providing music for a few hundred people this weekend and need my laptop and all usb devices to be running perfectly.
Any ideas and help is very much appreciated!
