Windows 7: USB madness.

USB madness.

Hey guys, this is probably the 8th or 9th forum website i post to, and im going a little crazy after all these weeks of spending money and time figuring this out.

Every time i play a game, any game, a few minutes into it my USB ports in the back panel die. Either all of em, or most of them, this includes keyboard, mouse, USB modem, forcing me to hard reboot.

Ive troubleshooted EVERYTHING. By this i mean, ive purchased a Thermalteak 600W PSU as an upgrade, a new Geforce 560Ti graphics card (thinking it might be a graphics issue), and ran several tests on the RAM with no errors. Besides the hardware, ive upgraded windows updates, USB drivers, BIOS and chipset drivers, the works.

It's still happening. And its making me even more insane.

Intel Core i5 2.66ghz (no OC'ing)
Intel DP55WB
2x2 GB Kingston DDR3 1333mhz
PNY Geforce 560Ti
2 TB Interal HD's
Thermaltake 600W PSU

Well lets start with the most simple steps,

Is your pc have other usb ports? In front panel maybe?

If yes,connect mouse,keyboard,modem in different ports and start a game to see the results.

I know it looks very simple but let start with this first.

And if your still looking this post just refresh the page to see the new reply

Maybe i can skip this step for you, i plug in my iPhone and another phone to front panel, and when the USBs die, they stop charging, so the front panels die as well. Do you still wnat me to plug in the mouse/keyboard to the front?

No

Did you set motherboard bios cmos to factory default and try to play a game?

Did you tried to remove all the external usb hardware with there drivers and use other mouse and keyboard for playing games?

Did you tried to enable Driver Verifier and check for bad drivers?

You must enable minidump and then enable Driver Verifier.

Please read carefully these 3 links and backup everything before you run Driver Verifier.

Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

My opinion? Bad hardware (motherboard) or a bad driver.

The Driver Verifier <<create>> a bsod crash,that way we can have a minidump to analyze and more help to find the solution.

You dont download driver verifier,you enable it in your windows

Please read again carefully,these 3 links and remember to backup everything and create a system restore point before you run Driver Verifier.

Set MiniDump

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

----------------------------
Then when you finish enabling minidumb and running driver verifier work as usual and wait for crash bsod to occurs,then disable driver verifier and,

Follow these simple steps and upload here the bsod folder

http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Take your time and read well and carefully all the tutorials then act.

Edit: I Noticed that in the bsod.txt you just uploaded

Caused By Driver : DB3G.sys

This is your Diamondback USB Optical Mouse Driver

So remove the mouse and the mouse software/driver,use other mouse and try to play.

Hey mate, I figured how to run it after I posted, I created a restore point, and enabled rebooted, and got BSOD, entered Safe Mode, removed it, etc.

Here are the results you asked for.
