Whenever I stick my new flash drive in my usb port I get the ol' blue screen of death (if that's what it's called). I'm thinking it may be because I had some driver problems a long time ago and I ended up getting rid of some files in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers... What are the standard driver's that come in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers & is there a place I can download them, thank you..

ps. Thus far this site kicks ass. :thumbsup:

If you have your Windows CD handy, then you might want to do a repair install-- this should reinstall all the standard Win drivers without affecting your installed programs and data.

Of course, whenever you mess around wit the OS like this, it is a good idea to back up your data in case something goes wrong.

Also, you may want to reinstall your motherboard/chipset drivers. They're what controls the USB stuff - and missing components could be what's causing your BSOD.

You can get system drivers from Windows Updates (Using IE only!) - let it scan your system.

Do you have all Windows Updates loaded including SP2 and subsequent updates?

go to microsoft using IE and search for sp2 click on the first thing under the line and then download from there it will take 10 to 15 minutes to download everything and now if this doesnt work then you might want to put in your recovery disks to fix this...


if you dont got recovery disk get 8 blank disks and follow these steps

1.Click start and go to all programs
2.Click on Hewlett-Packard
3.Go to HP PAVILION PC TOOLS and Click on it
4.Then go to Hp recovery cd creator

FWIW - we could use the info from the BSOD. Here's a link to an annotated picture of one (and instructions on how to use the Event Viewer): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/
