I have just installed a new SSD into my system, and was backing up my HDD to transfer OS to the SSD. Unfortunately, I got a BSOD. I tried again with the same result. Running WinDbg !analyze -v resulted in the output of "Failed system file: USBXHCI.sys". I did a bit of research around and found the solution to update my BIOS. Unfortunately, that didn't work. Now I don't know what to do. Can you help me, please? Thanks!

Perfmon shows that your webcam cannot start.

Please uninstall it's software and then physically remove it from the system while we're troubleshooting.


No memory dumps in the uploaded reports

No memory dumps in the KernelDumpList.txt report

Some BSOD's and many more LiveKernelEvents in the WER section of the MSINFO32 report - this can be a symptom of a hardware/compatibility/low-level driver problem.

Please start with these free hardware diagnsotics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

Please finish ALL of the tests and let us know the results.


If you are using a disk cleaner (such as CCleaner) please stop until we are finished with the troubleshooting.

If you have copies of the memory dumps, please zip them up and upload them with your next post.


Your UEFI/BIOS (version 3007) dates from 2016.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  This is just in case there has been a more recent update.
FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).

Only 6 Windows Update hotfixes installed.  Most build 14393 (1607) systems have more than this.  Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available Windows Updates.
The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.

MSI Afterburner (along with EVGA Precision and Riva Tuner) are known to cause BSOD's in some Windows systems (it's driver is usually RTCore64.sys).  Please un-install them immediately!

If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting.  Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.
