Safe Remove Usb Flash Memory Restarts Computer


While using different (manufacturers) usb flash drives on this computer from time to time my computer
Restarts itself while "safe remove" is being performed. Also, note that the same thing happens (again, sometime!) When i physically unplug the usb drive. Same usbs on different xp machines. No problems! Where do i need to look for a solution to this. I've noticed other people having the same problem as well (googled it).

Removing Usb - Safe To Remove Notification Missing

About a month after upgrading to windows 7, windows stopped displaying the "safe to remove" notification when i attempt to eject my flash drive from the usb port. I usually go ahead and remove the flash drive and haven't noticed any problems, but am concerned the i'm not receiving the notification.

Update Restarts Computer

Each night windows update restarts my computer and updates my driver software for wireless. I have to roll back the driver to get the wireless to work. Not sure why this is happening or what the root cause is, but each night the driver is updated by windows update and the wireless radio won't work. I then go and roll back the driver to the previous version and it works perfectly. I have 64 bit windows 7 hp laptop with an atheros ar9285 802. 11 b/g wifi adapter. If i click update driver in the device manager the same thing occurs.

Computer Freezes And Restarts

I have bought a new computer in late december 2009 and from the beginning i've been having two problems, the computer randomly restarts and more seldom but still a problem, the computer freezes. These events can happen with a frequency less than one time each day and sometimes as often as three times a day. The computer can be on reasonable load or hardly any load at all when it happens.

My computer parts looks like the following and i've got windows on one of my two ssds:

Western digital caviar black wd2001fass 64mb 2tb
Lg bh08ls20
Corsair dominator gt ddr3 pc12800/1600mhz cl8 4x2gb
Gainward geforce gtx 275 896mb physx pci-express 2. 0, 2xdvi
Gigabyte geforce 210 oc hdmi 512mb
Antec p183
Asus p7p55d-e premium
Antec cp-850 850w
Microsoft windows 7 ultimate eng
Intel core i7 860
Intel x25-m g2 160gb
Logitech wave keyboard (sv)
Lg w3000h

The first time i've received a message when windows was shutting down was just a while ago, and it said something about the memory. I have run memtest86 which showed no problems earlier. I can't open the mini-dump file but got hte following message this one time (have not had any messages like these before and the event viewer hasn't given me any useful information).

Problem signature:
Problem event name: bluescreen
Os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1
Locale id: 1053

Additional information about the problem:
Bccode: 1a

Bcp2: fffff68000030c18
Bcp3: 8260000164585867

Suddenly Computer Stops With Blue Screen And Restarts

My system is win 7. I recently got this new notebook. I thought i was having problem with anti-virus but i recently came to know about this blue screen of death. Suddenly the computer stops in between anytime with the blue screen showing up and computer restarts. I recently uninstalled norton which was a free-version which i got with notebook and installed kaspersky. I ve now even removed kaspersky and installed bit-defender but problem is still occurring. No virus detected by both.

I ve even tried to restore the notebook to the day i bought this. But the problem is not fixed. The error message looks something like what appears in this link http://www.Gadgetlite.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/windows-7-bsod.jpg. I am worried that my new system may get hardware problems due to this.

Remove Memory To Install Win 7

Why did i have to remove memory to install windows 7? I just completed my first homebuilt pc with an asus p6t mb and 12 gig ddr3 ram. I tried installing windows 7 but had several failure and problem screens with the message "a problem has occurred and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer. " It then went on to recommend removing any new hardware or software and try again.

A friend suggested me remove 3 of the 6 dimms and from 12 to 6 gig. Windows then installed with no problem. Is this a known issue and if so, can i reinstall the 6 gig i removed now that windows 7 is installed? Also, can i assume i have a good install even though there were several failed attempts before? (Do i need to remove anything from the failed attempts?)

Win 7 Freezes And Restarts When Transferring Files Through Usb

I have been having this problem since the day i got windows 7 and it is really starting to annoy me.
Any time i transfer files through any usb port the computer freezes, a buzzing noise comes from the speakers, the monitor turns off and the computer restarts. This happens when putting films on my hard drive, songs on my phone and syncing my mp3 player so that i actually can't do any of them.

I have uploaded the dump files here:

Computer Gets To "starting Windows" And Then Restarts Constantly

I just finished my first computer build. It was working fine, so i decided to take my graphics card and install it since everything else seemed good. I install it and the most recent drivers from ati. When i reboot, it gets to "starting windows" and then restarts. Safe mode still works. In my bios it says the gpu voltage is 0. 000, however the fan on the card is spinning. I've tried everything i could find on the web to no avail. Does anyone know what this mixture of symptoms could be caused by?

Use Memory Flash Card To Increase Ram Of Laptop

I need more ram for windows 7 professional, but my laptop only allows 1 gig of ram. I heard that you can use a memory flash card to increase the ram of a laptop. If so how do you do this? I have a sony vaio vgn-fs550, and it says that i can only have 1 gig of ram. When i ran the diagnostics check for windows 7 it said that i have a vgn-fs840. Why would this be?

My laptop has 95 gig of memory, but a vgn-fs550 only has 80 gigs of memory, could this be because who owned it before me upgraded the computer? If they did upgrade it will i be able to buy more ram for the laptop. If i can't buy more ram, i heard that you could use a memory flash card to increase the ram. If this is so how do i do this?

Usb Flash Drive - Usb Device Is Not Recognized

I have tried 4 different usb flash drives from different manufacturers and my usb hard drive from western digital. Windows 7 recognizes it until i start transferring files. Then it can't find the drive. When i unplug it and plug it back in, i get a notification that the usb device is not recognized. After i restart the computer, it does the same thing all over again. I ran vista before windows 7 and never had this problem. I am very frustrated. I must have access to my flash & external drives or windows 7 is useless to me.

Usb Memory Sticks Not Recognised

Two of my usb memory sticks (out of a total of 6) crashed win7 to a blue screen when first inserted. These two drives can be seen in device manager and in disk manager they show as disk 6. They have no drive letter and no volume. Attempting to format them or change the drive letter via disk manager always results in an error message saying that disk manager needs to be refreshed but this has no effect. These two disks can be seen and work perfectly on another pc running win7 and they also work on my vista partition.

I tried to apply a microsoft hotfix kb297694 (for xp) but this does not run. I think it is a registry problem (i get the bingbong when the drive is inserted and the safe removal icon but no sign of the drive in explorer or my computer). Does anyone have a fix?

Memory Card Reader - Usb Port Is Overloaded

My memory card reader is no longer reading my memory cards when i insert. I have not changed the type of card readers i'm using. It's been working fine and all of a sudden nothing happens when i insert my card. The green light doesn't even flash.

I did see a message that said "usb port is overloaded" (something like that). That may have been when it stopped working. Not too sure. I have no drivers showing under my disk drivers so i can not trouble shoot anything or uninstall and reinstall drivers.

This has happened in the past and i had to restore my whole computer, but i lost alot of programs doing that and would like not to go through that again. My computer is a hp pavilion a1587c, media center, window xp 2005, window vista capable.

Usb Flash Drive Problem

I have windows 7 on a dell inspiron 1525 (originally came with vista). Every time i use my flash drive to read or play files, or even just view files on windows explorer, it freezes up. The only way to fix it is to unplug it and wait, otherwise it will just sit there with a blank white screen. This never happened on my xp desktop. But what i wanted to do was back up my system. It seems to work until it reaches 25%.

That's when it freezes again. This also happens with a blank cd. The only external memory (besides an external hdd [i never tried that]) that works is a sd card. I don't have a high enough memory card so i'm stuck. I need something to back my system on.
