    I have a new desktop computer (< 3months), Intel Pentium 4 3.06GHz, Packard Bell Santiago Motherboard which has been working perfectly up to now, no crashes at all. Very little currently installed except Norton security 2005, Microsoft Office and some music/DVD stuff.

    I currently have a XFX GeForce 5200 PCI graphics card which has worked fine. I recently bought a Cube 3D GeForce 6600 256Mb AGP graphics card and I uninstalled my previous card and installed the new one. Windows recognised it correctly and the drivers installed fine. I used the card to play Age of Empires 3 and it worked correctly. But while my new card was installed the instant I plugged anything (e.g. flash drive, Ipod etc) into any of my USB2.0 ports on my computer it froze instantly, no warning messages or noises or anything. It had to be forcibly restarted by holding down the power button. This happened any time I tried to use a USB port while the card was installed.

    I then uninstalled my new card and replaced it with my old PCI graphics card and once again everything worked correctly. I then tried again to install my new graphics card and the same problem occured, using the USB ports caused the computer to freeze instantly. Looking in the error log I found that I had >50 errors of the form: "Service Control Manager" "The Application Management Service terminated with the following error: The specified module could not be found". I looked at the device manager while my new graphics card was installed and it said that the card was working correctly and didn't flag up any conflicts.

    I hope somebody can help me!
