    Hi,

    I really need help. My computer restarts everytime after I put USB in. For example, when I put in my iPod or just a normal USB pen drive. What's wrong? I've tried searching on google, but I can't seem to find anything

    My system:

    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

    - muffiN.

    Does your computer do this in every USB slot or just a specific slot? If it's a specific slot, then you probably have a defective slot. If it's every slot, then there might be a power issue with your motherboard (a 500W PS is plenty to run many USB 2.0 devices).

    I've got Thermaltake Soprano case and I'm using the 2 USB slot from the case. I'm going to try use the back of the motherboards slot and see what happens.

    Edit: Never mind, heh... :mad:

    It's weird because I can plug and sync my w850i and I can use my logitech usb headset 350. Those 2 don't restart the computer :(
