    On a previously fine PC, I noticed the usb cable for my Palm Pilot had fallen out (so that's why I couldn't connect to it!)

    So, I foolishly plugged the usb cable in. The screen froze, had to press reset to reboot.

    On rebooting my ISDN adaptor had a cross on it, indicating it wasn't enabled, it was IMPOSSIBLE to restart it. So I deleted it in device manager......it wouldn't delete "the device has failed to respond in a timely fashion".

    Then I realised all USB connected peripherals were not responding, ie isdn adaptor & printer! Everything I've tried has failed, switched ports, cables, nothing is detected when a usb cable is plugged in. So I was stuck with no internet connection, until I reinstalled my old PCI modem. Please guys, any advice would be much appreciated. I'm concerned something I did plugging that cable in has fried all my usb ports on my mobo:(

    Well seeing how interested you all are by my problem I thought I'd post an update;)

    I formatted & reinstalled Win XP, and STILL no function from usb ports, only hardware attached is Geforce3 graphics card.

    If i plug in a usb cable there's no response from windows at all.
    Has anyone else had similar problems, is there anybody out there?!?
