    I run windows 7 home premium and this morning for no apparent reason when I plugged in my USB stick my computer blue screened, I tried restarting it and the same thing happened, I tested my usb on a different computer and it was fine, I tired both ports on my laptop and the same thing happened on both. The same thing happened when I plugged in a different usb stick, but the usb mouse and webcam work fine.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    First: Did this problem just occur? (If so I suggest try a system restore using a restore point when the usb drive wasn't causing a crash) Second: Try to update your PCI drivers from your computer's manuf. website.

    If updating the drivers does not resolve this issue Go to Device Manager and expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Then uninstall all Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Restart the PC and Plug in the USB device and Scan For hardware Changes.
    Let me know if this helps.
