Windows 7: Constant BSOD, crashes with Vista

Constant BSOD, crashes with Vista

Hey everyone,

I'm having some serious issues on Vista and after trying several solutions, I'm at a complete loss. Not only am I getting consistant yet random BSOD's, but sometimes the computer refuses to boot and instead beeps several times.

The most common BSOD notice seems to be bugcode_usb_driver. It's also said driver_irql_not_less_or_equal.

I'm at a complete loss here so any help would be very much appreciated. I've attached the zipped file, but let me know if I can provide any additional information. Thank you again for any help.
