Q: bugcode_usb_driver blue screen of death This thread is locked from future replies

Hi, I've been recieving the bsod up to several times a day now for the past week, always the same error code:
***STOP: 0X000000FE
(0X00000008, 0X00000006, 0X00000001, 0X87468C68)

It seems to occur at random, some days, using msn messenger will cause it, other times, other programs, and sometimes it'll do it just for the heck of it.

Ive done all the memory and hdd checks availabe to me in the hewlett-packard boot menu, and got nothing, Ive used roll back to go back to before the errors began, installed updates to windows, run a cmd line virus scan in safe mode, and got nothing.

looked at some of the answers on here and all seem to refer to different things.

oh i also tried the 0x000000fe hotfix off the microsoft site, but it tells me that the problem isnt on my pc so refuses to install, and the hotfix windows suggests is for another error code and a problem i dont have!

hope you can help,




Hi !!

Thank you for your post.

When you try to put a Windows Vista-based computer to sleep or into hibernation, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
STOP 0x000000FE(parameter1 , parameter2 , parameter3 , parameter4 )  BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER

Microsoft has come up with a hot fix, for this error message. To help your self go to this page & request for the hotfix:

On the other hand update your computer for the Service Pack 2. How to obtain the latest Windows Vista service pack Check this Article:

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.



Post your computer make and model here. Add the individual device maker's names and models and include dates
and versions on your present drivers. We can help you find drivers. What Chipset do you have? Which version of
Windows and 32 or 64 bit.

See the link I posted above.

First go to your system maker's sites and manually look for drivers. Then go to the individual device makers sites
and look for even newer ones. Install the System Maker's available ones 1st as a fall-back and then add in the latest
from the device maker's sites.

Find driver - download - SAVE - go to that driver - RIGHT CLICK - RUN AS ADMIN - REBOOT

Look for special instructions at each maker's site as some drivers need to be run more than once, especially sound
drivers. After installing a driver and rebooting, compare the date and versions in Device Maker with the one you
started with before the installation. Some will rollback to 1st before installing latest.

There may also be low level drivers needed. SP2 loves updated drivers.
