Windows 7: BSOD randomly with unclear USB error

BSOD randomly with unclear USB error


I am getting bsod randomly and with increasing frequency now, almost everyday now.

There is some sort of usb error but the bsod is only visible for a short time to read everything.

i usually get usb device not recognised error pop up's during use, plus the usb sound accompanying the pop up( the one you hear when you plug in a usb device) only i do not have a device plugged, or unplugged in except my 2nd wifi usb card which i have never removed for 3 years now.

however these pop up do not seem to preceed the bsod as they can be days apart. Atleast the causality if not any is not immediate.

please help

thank you
