STOP 0x000000FC USB mouse

This is definitely odd..

The laptop works just fine (Dell Inspiron E1505) UNTIL you plug in a USB mouse or keyboard, then it BSOD's.  In normal mode, the error is 0x000000FC.  In Safe Mode, it's 0x0000007E.  USB flash drive works just fine.  Tested every port.  Any suggestions?

I would try to update the motherboard/chipset drivers for you laptop.

I have tried that from the Dell website, and also through Intel website, though the intel website says I have the current drivers.
excellent - have you tried another mouse perhaps? or that mouse on another PC?
Yes, and a keyboard.  Still BSOD's.  At least I'm glad that the things you guys are thinking of I have tried. :)  Unfortunately, that might also mean you run into the same road block in your head. :(  I'm hoping it's not the motherboard, because that would be hard to explain to the customer.  I don't really understand it myself if it's the motherboard.

can you post the minidump?  from windows \minidumps
another way is deleting ALL usb entries from device manager, reboot and test
I figured it out.  Basically when I went to the Intel website, the Intel Drive Update Check Utility told me I had the latest drivers.  I looked up that it was an ICH7 chipset, and manually went and downloaded those drivers.  I installed, restarted, and had success!

To sum up, I don't know if the drivers were corrupted and just needed to be replaced, but either way, at least there is a solution!

Thank you for all your help!
