    i have no clue if it even belongs here or hardware or software, but when i turned on my computer one day it stopped at a screen that was just black with compaq in red on the screen(my computer is indeed a compaq), it comes up with this everytime it boots anyway just gets past in it 1 or 2 seconds. i dont remember what i was doing beforehand because it was a long time ago and i have found a way to get around it-i think the problem was something to do with when iw as trying to download and install either new ipod or itunes software updates and cancelled because they were going so slow. anyway after a while-anywhere from 15-30 min. i left it, as far as i remember it will go ahead and get to the user log-in menu, but my mouse and keyboard dont respond. i ended up unplugging one extra thing at a time to see why it wouldnt work. the problem? my ipod charge/update cable cant be connected to the computer's usb and ipod when i start the computer. if i unplug it, start the computer, and plug it in when i get into windows it runs just normally. does anyone have any possible idea what the problem could be?

    -windows xp sp2
    -i dont know what ipod software etc i have that might be conflicting but it is whatever i had when i got it last december
    -logitech cordless desktop mx3000 laser
