Reader Question:
“Hi Wally, When I start my computer after putting it in sleep mode, I see this error: bugcode usb driver. Do you know how to fix it?“ - Robert E., United Kingdom

Before addressing any computer issue, I always recommend scanning and repairing any underlying problems affecting your PC health and performance:

  • Step 1 : Download PC Repair & Optimizer Tool (WinThruster for Win 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP and 2000 – Microsoft Gold Certified).
  • Step 2 : Click “Start Scan” to find Windows registry issues that could be causing PC problems.
  • Step 3 : Click “Repair All” to fix all issues.

Setting up weekly (or daily) automatic scans will help prevent system problems and keep your PC running fast and trouble-free.

Wally’s Answer: The Bugcode USB Driver error may occur when the computer is loading and starting Windows. This error and other such blue screen errors can look a bit scary and hard to fix. Don’t worry though, you should be able to fix the problem after following the steps in this page.


The Bugcode USB Driver error appears when the computer starts. It forces the computer to restart suddenly and shows this error on a blue screen.

The Bugcode USB Driver error usually appears while loading USB device drivers. This can be due to a corrupt USB device driver or a damaged USB device.


Here are some ways to solve the Bugcode USB Driver error:

  3. Install all updates if possible.

Troubleshooting USB Related Error

The Bugcode USB Driver error can occur from a malfunction of USB devices or their drivers. You can check if that is the case by removing the device in question and seeing if the error repeats.

Try updating the device driver of the malfunctioning device by using DriverDoc or by going to the manufacturer’s website and looking for the correct driver there.

Is Your PC Healthy?

I always recommend to my readers to regularly use a trusted registry cleaner and optimizer such as WinThruster or CCleaner. Many problems that you encounter can be attributed to a corrupt and bloated registry.

Happy Computing! :)
