    Please post 5 or 6 of your latest actual minidump files. You can attach them directly to your next reply.

    Regards Howard :)

    You may have to replace the motherboard at this point, or disable the on-board USB ports in the bios and see if the error continues. You can always install an add-in USB card

    Cool,
    hope it works... Now you know why I stay away from anything Nvidia and so, so far away for Vista at this time

    well Duhh!, reading minidumps allows the user to understand what is going on. In many cases, the examination of the debugging file will give you the cause right away. Without looking at minidumps and the debugging file, you are often shooting in the dark. I believe in teaching to fish, not just giving a fish....

    I stand by what I said...

    Checking memory, hard drive condition and driver updates is not "shooting in the dark" by any means. Minidump interpretations may be

    Hey
    here is an update
    nothing worked with windows XP and everyone - even Asus - said RMA the motherboard ..
    I was about to do that but decided to try Vista to see what happens .. if it is a motherboard issue it should bsod on vista as well
    ... so far after the install no crashing or issues .. everything is running very smoothly ..
    its been a day and no crashing !
    Thank you for your help - i will be sending an email to Nvidia about this since it seems to be a compatibility issue with the USB and windows xp

    Thanks again! I appreciate the help
