Default Re: USB related BSODs?

I just switched out cases due to my CM Sniper was not grounding well (couldn't really find the true cause), same thing was happening to me that the OP was having (BSOD). I switched my case back to the Lian-Li case that i just upgraded from and sure enough my grounding issues went away.

My exception was that ANY static discharge (rubbing feet on the carpet, petting my cat) that came in contact with the case resulted in a BSOD, not just USB. Both the CM Sniper case and the Lian-Li (100% aluminum) had the exact same components, so I know the grounding issue was in the CM case itself.

thanks for the link dude, but doesn't look like canadian sites have it for approx that price. There's one that has it for 200 even. grey's is probably the best link...and since i got vista ultimate, i can only upgrade to the comparable windows 7 version, whatever its called.

i will purchase it during the summer, when i have a job

With the upgrade DVD it doesn't mater what you have. I installed it fresh with a empty HDD from boot up. I found this as well.

Put it this way I installed 7 home prem upgrade dvd on a blank HDD and it installed fine. just saying. I also did the same thing for the wife's PC and it had XP. But get OEM if you feel better about it.

My computer has done that as well with my last 2 cases (1 antec, 1 CM) Only with the front ports. I think **** is just made cheaply tbh.

Default Re: USB related BSODs?

thing is, the sony USB key i have, has a crappy design because the actually metal "USB" part slides in and out of the casing, and there is no way to hold it in place, other than a grip thing on the side, so when i plug it in, i almost have to jiggle it a bit, so the USB part doesn't slide back into the casing.

Oh well, gotta this thread in mind for my next upgrade
