How do I fix the “BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER” BSOD Error message?

By   December 28, 2012

When trying to start up the computer, or put a Windows-based computer to sleep or into hibernation, you may receive an error message telling something as follow together with a blue screen: “STOP 0X000000FE(parameter1 , parameter2 , parameter3 , parameter4 ) BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER”. Though sometimes, it may disappear after a simple computer reboot; but if it appears too frequently, you should take instant actions to check and deal with it. If not, it may cause more serious errors to the computer rather than an unexpected BSOD error message.

BSOD error

Sometimes, the BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER blue screen error will only be a temporary issue. So, if this is the first time you get the BSOD problem error message, it is recommended that you can quit the program and re-launch it again to see whether it solves. Alternatively, you can select to reboot your computer when getting the blue screen problem.

If the error persists, you should try running an adware, spyware, and virus scanner. This is because a virus infection can bring in the happening of such BSOD error message. You can also obtain this software for free in the internet. The scanning here can take a while longer compared to a scan by registry cleaner because it scan your hard drive thoroughly.

If BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER blue screen error code remains after removing PC threats, there must be something wrong with the outdated drivers on your computer. At this time, it is recommended that you should download and run a driver checker program to thoroughly scan your computer and update all outdated drivers on your computer, especially the video adapter drivers.

Fourthly, remove the incompatible third-party software with the Recovery Console. If all the above steps do not help, you need to check what you have installed recently and easily remove them from the computer by using the Recovery Console. However, you can uninstall them by using the Windows built-in Add/Remove Programs feature. By the way, it is recommended that you should thoroughly scan your computer with a registry cleaning utility to get rid of leftover entries within Windows registry. Windows registry is the main component of Windows operating system to store all setting & options of the hardware & software on the computer. If this database is filled with lots of invalid or corrupted entries, it will be impossible for the system to access the needed entries to load the computer and some certain programs, resulting in the BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER error or some other errors like a fatal exception error.

However, if there is nothing with the programs itself on your computer, the must be something with the Windows registry which might need repairing. Firstly, you should know that the computer registry is an important and essential repository filled with all the configuration settings that required to make all of the hardware and software components communicate properly. In this way, it is needed to get rid of these kind of corruptions should they exist, to avoid serious information loss from taking place, just like BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER blue screen errors. Secondly, to manually find and repair the glitches inside the computer registry is extremely inadvisable and impossible as there are 1000s of individual configurations. Seriously, a simple mistake in Windows registry will make the computer messed up and cause more serious problems. So, to ensure the proper running of the computer, it is best that you can rely on a registry cleaning utility to scan and fix all the corruptions in your Windows registry.

To my own experience, a BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER blue screen is a sign to tell you a problem either within the hardware or software. Some can severely affect the computer performance and make it run improperly. Thus, it is quite important that you can completely troubleshoot the whole PC and deal with all insides error ASAP when in a need to solve this BSOD error.
