  1. Hey everybody, i have a problem were my USB seems to act wierd in windows, and when a device is plugged in windows it does not power it, and when you take out the device it could say (new device found (proper name)) or (unknown device found)

    The thing i find wierd is that when i start windows, if i plug for instance my Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 into the USB it has POWER it flashes red underneath until the WindowsXP starts loading.

    I have tried numerous things i have no idea how to cure this problem?

    My Current Specs are
    2200+ Thoroughbred
    512MB DDR333 Corsair
    40gb seagate
    gigabyte r9000pro
    creative sblive 5.1 digital.

    Im looking for help on how to basically rectify this problem. Before it used to work in XP Pre SP2 and in SP1 (but that was becuase USB1.1 was working) I would like to know a way to get it working thanks to all inadvance

    You should go to USB's manufacturer's website and check for the latest drivers. If it is not there, you can go to
