I have been fighting with my pc I built no more that two months ago. At that time it was fine. Lately it has been trouble for me if put the computer to work ie games, adobe premiere. It never crashes while playing the game but like 15 mins after it will either bsod or freeze or restart. Very frustrating.

Now im not at my computer at this time because I am out of town for a few days however I thought maybe joining another forum I could get some more help. Below is two forums I have usedt o get help and it can explain whats been happening with me. Minidumps are included in the posts Please bug me to add more information if needed. Im really desperate for fix this when I get home. Im able to add one zip file that has a collection of dumps and reports. Hope this helps.

Test your memory modules one at a time with Memtest86+. Replace if any show as bad.

If the modules continue to show well, install Windows to a different hard drive while removing your original as a test to see how it goes.

Safe mode problems indicate a hardware malfunctioning.

If these are still on the system, remove or update them:

usbfilter usbfilter.sys Fri Apr 03 07:39:51 2009

ah Mr TorrentG sir. Your on the other forum as well. Last time I used memtest, it was both sticks. Il try 1 at a time when I get home. I think I have a extra 80gig drive sitting at home I can try.

When I removed the usbfilter.sys and restarted it disabled my keyboard and mouse so cant get rid of that. Also updated all drivers related to usb. The xusb21.sys I have no idea what that is and im afraid i will be stuck with a pc without mouse and keyboard. Do you know what exactly it is?

and sorry for posting in multiple forums but I have to get as much free solutions as I can because I dont want to take it to a shop.

edit: googled xusb21.sys and it shows that its my microsoft xbox controller driver. I use my wireless headset for gaming and skype on it. The disk it came with didnt work so I selected windows common controller and it showed up. I think i installed the software from Microsoft too.

xusb21.sys is the X-Box controller driver and is very likely to be causing issues. Delete it from C:\Windows\System32\drivers, update your chipset drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's site, then reboot,

One thing at a time. First, you should do the things necessary as shown to see if bsods are alleviated. If so, you have the answer to your question and can figure out for yourself what to do.

What I'm trying to say politely is that you're not following directions to alleviate bsod and it shouldn't be further put on myself and other bsod analysts to continue telling you the same things to try to fix your pc.

So best advice is do what needs to be done, post new crashes if necessary. If those drivers are still present as shown, the answer to be helpful to you is going to remain the same.

Good luck! :)
