hey, bought a new machine as part of my new home studio, installed windows 7 all the hardware drivers which came with it, ran windows update and installed all the recommended packages, since the day after i keep getting around 2-3 bsod's a day and its been a week since. couldnt find any solution on google for the specific msg i get, installed an application called "whocrashed" which shows the crash log and this is what came out, the rest are the same:




On Wed 11/07/2012 20:39:22 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: iusb3xhc.sys (iusb3xhc+0x2FD97)
Bugcheck code: 0xD1 (0x2C, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF8800948FD97)
Error: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\iusb3xhc.sys
product: USB 3.0 Device Driver
company: Intel Corporation
description: Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver
Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: iusb3xhc.sys (Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver, Intel Corporation).
Google query: iusb3xhc.sys Intel Corporation DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Quick guess - maybe it's related to this?

(scroll down to alimbo's post, 3rd from the bottom on the first page.. he says:

Same thing i posted in another thread : Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible host controller drivers are broken and cause bsods, hangups and some other errors when you plug external devices into the non USB 3.0 ports.

You have to uninstall the drivers in the standardsoftware folder NOT! in the device manager or it causes other bugs maybe.

When the broken intel drivers are uninstalled you can use all ports with 2.0 Speed only but without any errors. Just wait for working USB 3.0 drivers from Intel for your Panther Point Chipset even it could take a bit longer lol.

attempting to uninstall the usb 3 drivers directly from its folder i recieved a msg "this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software" so i uninstalled from the windows programs uninstall wizard in control panel, i have no idea wether it would fix this, i posted a msg on this sevenforums.com forum which includes a system report and an output from their bsod tool if any of you could check it out here http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-debugging/239925-bso...
btw if im running windows 7 64 bit why were the install drivers installed in the x86 program files folder?

anyways this explaination does not seem logical to me, i guess that this usb controller is kinda standard on most of the motherboards, if i do not use the driver provided i cannot integrate usb3 devices with my pc and the usb connectors on the front of my case are non-operational, what else can be done ?

the one thing that causes bsod and reboots on Win7 platforms here (all non server Win 7 flavors)
is specialized .ddl drivers in video and security camera software.
happens with different MBs.
happens with different RAMs.
happens with Intel and AMD.

we've just set the necessary apps to restart when the systems reboot
and leave them run.

there MAY be USB issues... but our systems seem much more sensitive
to the other problem noted above.

i suspect MS could update a more crash resistant build if they put
some effort into this.

also this happens with IE9 and Firefox
and happens with Chrome.
for what that is worth.

suggestion: could it be that the bsod occours because the intel usb drivers are installed in the x86 program files dir instead of the 64dir "program files"? if so then the installation does not provide with an option to select what version im interested in, please advise.

RAM seems to be the cause of most issues in windows 7. I'd run memtest86+ for at least 3 or more passes to see if it turns up anything.
