That's strange. I just had another bsod, so here's another...this one definately contains the event that just happened. I don't know why there are no dmp files between 11-20 and 11-22.

Happy Thanksgiving -

Well, i think the stress test was passed after several hours. I thank you! Assuming this has been causing past BSODs, how is it possible that this usb issue made it through a clean install?

will keep fingers crossed

USB issue may not be overcome via a clean install, as the driver CD you are using during installation is almost 3 years old. You get the new version of nForce, install it after a clean install, and hopefully it will do the nvstor.sys and USB both the issues.

OK .. dont be sorry :)

I told you to not use nvstor, but it is still there and crashing.

Edit: two more steps base on the latest dumps:

1. Disc Check:
  1. Update your SSD's Firmware (Skip it, if it is not a SSD)
  2. Re-seat the sata and power.
  3. Run chkdsk /f/r, following the option two of the tutorial Disk Check
  4. Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
    Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
2. Scan the system for possible virus infection. (it's a precautionary step)
