  1. Hi,

    My computer restarts everytime I put a USB in. For example, when I put in my iPod or just a normal USB pen drive. This doesn't happen to my w850i phone and Logitech USB headset 350.

    I have windows XP
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64, 2400 MHz 3800+
    Motherboard: Asus A8R-MVP
    Memory: 1024 MB
    Hard Drive: 120GB
    Graphics card: ATI Radeon x1800 xl
    Power Supply Unit: 500 watt SilverStone

    Anyone know what the problem is?

    Have you checked the system logs ? It could be that the system reboots every time you plug in a device that have bigger power demands (typical of devices that can charge off the USB slot).
