  1. BSOD While Using the Internet, Bugcheck: 0x1000007f

    Hi,
    I've started to get BSOD's for no apparent reason in firefox. For example, i went to addictinggames.com and i got a BSOD. This problem started happening today. I haven't made any changes to my computer lately besides installing a logitech keyboard and mouse. I'm using a custom computer with Windows XP SP2. So far its happened 3 times. In event viewer the errors show:

    1st time: Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 80042000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.

    2nd time: Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 80042000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.

    3rd time: Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 f7757d70, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.

    the save dump files show:

    1st time: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007f (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini021808-01.dmp.

    2nd time: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007f (0x00000008, 0x80042000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini021808-02.dmp.

    3rd time: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007f (0x00000008, 0xf7757d70, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini021808-03.dmp.

    I've checked the website thats sticked and it says its a usb problem and i should install sp2 which i have.

    I've attached the 3 minidump files. I'm gonna run symentec antivirus before i sleep to see if it's a virus. Thanks for your help.

    edit: after the 3rd bsod. the bookmarks in firefox disappeard :confused: i dont know if its related or not. just thought it was a bit weird.

    Your minidumps all point to the WUSB20XP.sys which is a driver for the Linksys Wireless-G Network Adapter. Many people have experienced issues with this driver.

    I suggest updating your drivers.
