    Hello people,

    I have a problem with my usb ports. Currently have have two ports in the back, they are of the mother board, and I connect those to a printer and a scanner. However, when I remove one of those device and connect a new device such as usb/flash memory or digital camera or any other usb device, my computer will lockup. And the only way I can reset the computer is by pressing the reset button. Please help me if you can. Thanks in advance

    My computer spec is as follow:

    OS: Winxp pro with sp1 and have all the patches
    Mother Board: MSI-6580, 845G Max
    CPU: pentium 4 2GHz
    Memory: 1G crucial
    video card: evag 5700 Ultra
    HDD: 60G western digital
    optocal drive: generic

    Did it actually lock up or is it just taking forever... sometimes the 1st time you plug the device in it can damn damn near forever

    Yeah, it happened to me with a Fuji camera: the computer froze when plugged in. I was very nervous because some documents were unsaved, so I went to a smoke and a beer. But at the end of the beer the computer was running again and everything was fine...

    You are right, it's just take forever before winxp can detect the darn thing. Thanks for all your help/suggestion
