Default Random Crashes.

Built my Rig in Dec, XP Pro SP2. Bout a week in I started having random BSOD when I relog onto the puter, after the screen saver kicks in. WinDbg says its KMW_Sys, which is the Kensington Mouse program.

Reinstalled it a few times, and nothing.
Since the last Microsoft update, Thusday, it is now crashing on it's own, with WinDbg giving
usbehci.sys (usbehci ! EHCI_POLLActiveASyncEndpoint+37)

And

AswMon2.sys (asmon2+6a1e)

It's crashed 20 times in bout 2 months with, with the first 15 being the kmw_sys, 3 being usbehci and 2 the aswmon.

I just uninstalled avast to see if that helps. And i do have my mouse as usb.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Default Re: Random Crashes.

Well one thing that stands out for me is you have 4 gig of ram and windows XP only will recognize 3 gigs if I remember correct. But i am getting old so may be wrong. But it seems like a lot of errors. Try to take all the ram out but one stick and see if some of the errors clear up. I know this seems unrelated but when I have errors popping up from many directions that has been some kind of problem related to memory. Doesnt hurt to check.

Yha, you're right bout the RAM, I did plan on 64bit Vista, but haven't got around to it yet.

I'll try 3, I too was wondering if the extra was a problem.

thanks

Default Re: Random Crashes.

Finally, got around to doing everything.

Pulled the RAM from 2 slots, and ran it for a week, but it came back. Switched RAM back into the other 2 free spots, but still happens.

Infact, now that RAM is down to 2Gig, I experience new symptoms. IE 7, explorer and firefox all freeze for a second. Minimizing then maximizing, will unfreeze it. Also, I randomly loose my mouse.

Also, now I can cause a repeatable BSOD, by having utorrenet and tversity running, then run my voice recongnize software for games. 90% chance of crashing.

I don't think it's bad RAM,and wonder if it's motherboard, xfx 680i, or Vid card eVGA 8800gt. One minidump reported corrupt memory, rest are as stated in the other post, usbehci.sys (usbehci ! EHCI_POLLActiveASyncEndpoint+37)

Oh, I also have a powered USB 2.2 hub, that my externals on.

Would anybody be able to comment on my minidumps, only have 3 as i did a forrmat, and/or help narrow down the culprit.

Thanks
