    I got a new air card for internet from Verizon. I am having an issue with it not allowing the computer to start when it is plugged in. Loads to the blue screen where you can go into "setup" at the beginning, then won't do anything else. I've checked my boot order, and it shows that is booting from the hard drive first. Any ideas?

    When you remove the aircard and reboot does windows start?

    Yeah. If the air card isn't plugged in, it starts up as normal

    Yeah, if I plug in the air card after the computer is up and running, it works fine.

    Well if your boot settings isn't set to USB first then I'm not sure but I've had Clients tell me that just rebooting their PC with an XP version while having a USB flash drive plugged in that it stalls the PC from starting up. After removing it and rebooting everything worked fine... Is it an issue to just plug the device in after windows starts?

    Not a huge issue, more of a pain in the butt, and a risk that if it doesn't get unplugged before starting, then the computer locks up, and I have to manually do a forced power down, which isn't good. Everything worked fine with my old air card, so I'm not sure what is wrong.

    Cause of this booting issue, might be related to your Motherboard USB.

    -In BIOS settings under Integrated Peripherals > disable "USB Legacy Support"
    -Check Update your Motherboard bios.
    -Try connect different USB port in your mother board.
    -Try connect external USB port on your mother board.
    -You can try connecting VFD through external USB Hub.


    Try rebooting with the aircard again- if not I have another solution if you know how to Load Factory Defaults in BIOS.

    What does disabling this actually do?

    Still not sure why I'm having this issue, but a new computer is on the way. Not worried about it. Marking it solved. Thank you to those trying to help. It is appreciated.
