  1. Hey guys, need some help again.

    Getting blank BSODs and screen balckouts.
    I have run memtest and it's come up clean. I think it may be one of the drivers, but not sure. Have tried to update them but the problem comes back after awhile.

    Was wondering if anyone could help me out with my minidump files?
    Thanks in advance... really need some help on this.
    I've uploaded the last 8 minidumps...

    Hi your crashes are caused by your video drivers. Download DriverCleaner, run it in safe mode and remove the video drivers. Reinstall the latest drivers.

    Another cause of your crashes is usbochi.sys try this:
    If you have Windows XP, download and install the SiS XP Registry Patch:

    Also try changing the driver for the SiS USB controller to "Standard OpenHCI USB Controller".

    Sorry to be a bother but do you think you can point me in the right direction?

    EDIT:
    I've unistalled the drivers, cleaned with driver cleaner and did a fresh install or the ATI drivers.
    I thinki found the SiS Usb thing (the file name is sis-usbdetect).

    BUt i just got another blank BSOD....
    please please if you could have another look. It's starting to be really annoying and i can't seem to get anything done.

    Thanks ever so much for you time guys
