Windows 7: BSOD at random intervals arthr.sys?

20 Apr 2013   #71

Windows 7 starter 32 bit

Uh, you're saying you told me to uninstall drivers that now can't be reinstalled without a nuke and reshoot?

Of course I'd like to try reinstalling the missing drivers that I was just assured are not missing.

This link does not lead to a driver BTW, it's broken
Try Drivers Informer: Intel(R) 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller - 27C8 overview.

As for clean reinstall: No thanks. I'll install Linux or Hackintosh this box before I waste any more time with Windows. Hard to trust when y'all have different feedback and so far, my box is worse off than
it was when I got here. Just sayin'.

Yours is the first case where the uninstalled host controllers are not being reinstalled at a reboot.

Windows has native host controller drivers. Those take the load automatically. The host controllers you have got installed are part of your chipset driver. We all know it that the ports work good even before the chipset is installed.

Sorry for the mess caused by me .... I did not expect that the instruction that worked good for at least 500 times will fail to work for you. This instruction solved a fairly large number of USB related issues. Its my bad luck that it failed this time.

Expressing my apologies. Forgive me if you can.

I will suggest the same again, and this will work flawlessly. I know it. It's empirical.

Sorry for the delay getting back Archie. I hope I'm not too late. I finally got back into SF. Right after posting in VIP and getting the confirmation screen I was back in the old server and couldn't get out. Re-boot, Flush, CCleaner, Renew, ..., nothing worked. Ended up finding an option in IE to refresh pages that finally worked. But then I just had it happen again. It appears my IE10 data option keeps resetting to "Automatic" and I get sent back to the old server.

In any case, (To the OP) I'm not sure a re-install will activate the hub controllers. Do they show up in Device Manager? If not, try to clear CMOS memory. This should force the BIOS to re-evaluate the hardware and make Windows install the drivers.

Also, in Device Manager, click View in tool bar and select Show Hidden Devices. If the hubs show there, just try to enable the devices.

I hope this posts.

Arc: I'm not mad at you at all really, just frustrated with MS. Lose no sleep over it. I agree, you only offered assistance.

Carwiz THANK YOU, I'LL TRY IT!! And thanks for the heads up that a fresh install might have a pitfall. Appreciate that.

THANK YOU *CARWIZ* and *ARC* (for not giving up!)

all drivers are now reinstalled.
after multiple reboots and attempts with the windows updater
I cleared CMOS and then windows updater actually updated about half the missing USB controller drivers,
and on the next reboot, it loaded them all.

The difference was I plugged in the TP Link wireless adapter (and reloaded the TP link driver)
after which, all else magically worked.
