I keep randomly getting the above-mentioned BSOD.

What could be the cause?
(I just recently installed a USB 2.0 Ethernet adapter,although it initially worked fine before the BSOD issues.)

Also,my Hitachi 1TB hard drive and my Sony blu-ray burner will both disappear from Windows,then reappear after a reboot.

This is too weird..

What OS are you running? Also, we need a little more information as to when and where the BSOD is occurring ("Where" would be the location (ntoskrnl.exe) that is causing the BSOD and "when" would be during shutdown, resuming from hibernation or standby, etc.). Here is a link that might be of assistance in solving your issue: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001152.htm

We'll need detailed system information to in order to help out including a better description of when the BSOD's occur if possible.

The drives dissapearing & reappearing could be the result of power fluctuation from the PSU as could the BSOD's, but is only one of dozens of possible causes.

Since the USB ethernet is the newest install & these started afterwards, that would be my first point of troubleshooting. Simply remove it, uninstall the drivers, and see if the BSOD's continue. That's about the best I can do without further information.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
CPU is an AMD FX8150 @ stock 3.6 Ghz.
Videocard is a EVGA GTX480.
Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5.
16 GB of Corsair DDR3-1333.

PSU is a PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 (non-Quad) bought in December 2006.

It's really odd that the drives reappear like nothing happened after restarting my PC.

I just checked my power plan settings,and USB selective suspend was enabled.(I disabled it for now.)

Do you use 64-bit drivers and Symantec? If so the BSOD culprit is likely "teefer2.sys". This file is part of Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 Firewall. Uninstall the firewall and it should works without any hiccup. Replace Symantec with MS Security Essentials or old skool Outpost, Sunbelt, Sygate or ZoneAlarm.

@ chaosdsm ... or it could be the Silencer! :)

:lol: It pre-dates the OCZ buyout though ;) & there's no such thing as a fail-proof power supply... even our sun will burn out in a few billion years :P

Likely the same issue. Kill it and go with MS SE.

I wish people would actually try to solve the f'ing problem rather than "go install [my application of choice]!".

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... 85%29.aspx I think this could also lead you to more solutions as well as http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315249

If you aren't sure about the parameters, they should be stored under Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> On the left side is a bunch of categories, select "System". You can sort by type, the BSOD would be under "error" as a bug check.

We try, apparently just not as hard as you have yourself convinced. Nice work Holmes.
