    Hi guys, I have a Dell Dimension E521 desktop with XP Pro SP3, fully updated, and devoid of any malicious software. It works almost perfectly, except for that sometimes when I restart it, it hangs up halfway through the dell screen. If I shut it off via button and start it back up again, it works fine. It's never done it more than 1 time consecutively. Any thoughts?

    Hangs at the Dell Screen not the XP loading screen?

    Could be something connected to the USB ports....I heard that Logitech had issues like that on Dells....see if there are any update drivers for the PC on Dells site and any newer drivers for Logitech on their site
