To put it short - USBs don't work in my computer anymore, they make my computer freeze and I have to restart it.

I mean thats great and all.. But my mouse, keyboard and wireless card are USB

My Motherboard is from gigabyte and I never used to be able to access my BIOS, until I swapped some cords around (I'm not complaining because it works now) but now my computer can use my USBs for a whopping 5 seconds before it freezes

I was reading some fixes though, some included disabling the already enabled Legacy USB stuff in the BIOS, which didn't make a difference.

The next thing I read was this...

Create a .REG file called fix and enter the following

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question

Then there was a whole bunch of things to uninstall. This sounded promising, BUT I couldn't even click on the FIX.REG file before it froze

Please, if anyone has any ideas, I'm desperate at this point.

What OS are you using?  What is the make and model of the system (if it's a custom build - what is the model of the Gigabyte motherboard)?

Do you have recovery media?  If so, where did you get it from?


Can you generate any of these reports:


Let's try looking at these reports:

1)  Please provide this information (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504
