  1. Hey, I desperately need some help here.

    My PC keeps randomly restarting. I did not install anything recently and I don't know what might be causing this. It shows the blue screen of death for a half a second or so and then restarts.

    I managed to get an error code description and this is what it said:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: System Error
    Event Category: (102)
    Event ID: 1003
    Date: 18/03/2008
    Time: 9:23:18 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: RAGE
    Description:

    0050: 30 30 30 30 0000

    The error signiture was as follows:
    BCCode : 1000007f BCP1 : 00000008 BCP2 : BAB38D70 BCP3 : 00000000 BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

    I also looked in the even viewer and found this message:

    Event Type: Information
    Event Source: Save Dump
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 1001
    Date: 18/03/2008

    Description:
    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000007f (0x00000008, 0xbab38d70, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini031808-04.dmp.

    And then there was this following event as well that seemed weird:

    Event Category: None

    Description:

    I don't know what a stop state is but i also got this following message as well:

    Event Type: Error

    Event Category: None

    The crashes are caused by RSC4USB.sys - INFO. See if you can update it.

    Also, you should only have one AV program installed.

    The avast! iAVS4 Control Service service entered the stopped state. <-- Avast.
    The AVG7 Update Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). <-- AVG.

    BugCheck 1000007F, {8, bab38d70, 0, 0}
    Probably caused by : RSC4USB.sys ( RSC4USB+175ce )

    You may have the same problem but it doesn't mean you have the same issues that cause your problem. We need more details and it would be good if you started your own thread and gave us your system specs.
