Windows 7 freezing/blues screens and motherboard beeps with USB devices?

  1. This only applies to the USB ports on the rear of my computer as far as I'm aware.

    When you plug USB devices into the computer windows sometimes completely freezes and then the screen goes black and the computer restarts itself and makes 2 long beeping noises.

    Either this or sometimes blue screens.


    Is it possible that it's a software problem within windows or is it hardware?

    I used to have XP installed on this same machine and there was absolutely no problems like this......

    Sounds like you need either to a) update the BIOS or b) update your motherboard chipset drivers.
