Computer Blue Screening with 0x00000050 or 0x000000D1

Posted on 2011-03-07

I have a computer that keeps blue screening with either with 0x00000050 or 0x000000D1.  The 0x000000D1 usually is accompanied by the file usbport.sys.  The computer is running XP Pro.

What happens is the computer flashes that the USB card reader has malfunctioned on and off again for awhile.  Then eventually it will blue screen.  This happened (approx) 6 months ago, right after the computer was first built and we first replaced the card reader and then eventually the motherboard.  That fixed it for a little while but now it is happening again.  Any ideas?

If you keep the card reader unplugged completely, does this issue still occur?

Also, did you do a fresh install of windows after replacing the motherboard?

A fresh install of windows could negate this troubleshooting procedure i'm about to mention but if you haven't reinstalled, try booting the PC in SAFE MODE.
If it still BSODs in safe mode then disconnect ALL usb devices (including internal ones like card readers and Front-Port expansions) and try again.
If it still BSODs, i'd suspect the mainboard.

Although, you really do need to try a different windows load.

It was not a clean install when the motherboard was replaced.  The user had a ton of programs so we just did a repair install.  I suppose that would be a good thing to try next.

Yes, I would recommend a clean install after any motherboard replacement.

Sorry for the delay but it has not been acting up again as of late.  I will keep you posted.

I would still recommend a clean install of Windows at some point in your near future. The fact that it's been working fine lately should be taken advantage of and create backups of your data.
