Windows 7: BSOD playing EQ or under heavy disk access

BSOD playing EQ or under heavy disk access


I am seeing random BSOD, usually when play Everquest, sometimes associated with heavy disk usage. I've done all the usual things, virus scans, chkdsk, etc.

I've created the dump files and attached, hope someone can point me in the right direction.

It is VIA USB eXtensible Host Controller Service (c:\windows\system32\drivers\xhcdrv.sys) that is contributing to your BSOD. I wonder how, because your motherboard H81M-DS2V should have Intel USB 3.0 only.

If I have been in your place, I would have performed a clean reinstall and will install
  • Realtek HD Audio Driver
  • Realtek LAN Driver
  • Intel USB 3.0 Driver
  • Intel Management Engine Interface
  • Intel INF installation
From GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-H81M-DS2V (rev. 1.0) only. And nothing else from the driver CD.

I will suggest you to do the same.
