Windows 7: Windows 7 Crashes due to USB 2.0 insertion

15 Mar 2010   #11

Windows 7 64-bit

No update yet, IT teachers are suggesting my drive letters are the same, my usb defaults to J:/ and i dont have a J drive so its not the problem.

That program would be great if the only thing that freezes the computer is physically plugging in a usb.

If you have enough unpowered USB devices it could cause a voltage drop that would lock you up. How many total and how many unpowered?
You haven't answered ZigZag's question yet.

Is your usb hub/s self powered. ?

Okay I'm definitely having the same problem. I'm 100% sure it is not a hardware issue for the fact that it is only MassStorage devices that make my computer freeze, and it is every single one of my USB ports that cause it to freeze.
I have tried an External Hard Drive (which has a power cord) as well which covers the question if the USB is taking power away from the computer also. I'm not sure what could be the problem and it annoys me.
