    I just built a brand new pc.. the specs are as follows:

    CPU: AMD Athlond 6400+ Dual Core 64 Bit
    Motherboard: ASUS M2N-E Sli
    Ram: 2GB Corsair PC6400 DDR2
    Graphics Card: GeForce 8800GTS
    HDD: 500GB Western Digital
    OS: Windows XP SP2

    ==================================================

    I am lost for what to try to see where this problem is coming from, I have only one component plugged in via USB and thats my wireless keyboard / mouse.

    Every now and then my keyboard will just randomly for no apparent reason stop working and I have to reboot 3 times in order to get it to work again however the mouse which is also wireless and came as part of a combo with the keyboard doesnt stop working at the same point that the keyboard does.

    Here is a screenshot of my usb bandwidth exceeded message with only my wireless keyboard / mouse plugged in:

    If you are trying to run a cable or DSL modem via the USB and playing online games, this might be a cause. If you are running lots of external hardware like hard drives, scanners, and printers through the same hub, that might also do it. Do you have USB 2.0? If not, get a USB 2.0 expansion card that automatically gives you more bandwidth.

    Lastly, here (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;884470) is a Microsoft KB article on the subject.

    Good luck.

    My router runs through eternet, I know better than to run a router via usb, I am somewhat of a tech guy myself which is why I dont understand where this error is coming from.

    I think I may of fixed it now tho as I just updated my BIOS, so unless anyone else has any ideas we will wait and see

    wireless mice and keyboards come in a set therefore need only usb connection to plug the connector into your pc and the two components link to the 1 connector

    are these namebrand components or by a loball/cheap mfg few folks have ever heard of?

    it sounds like they don't play well together even tho they're packaged together.

    a bios upgrade can be a dicey way to go, can/has killed a machine or 2.

    glad it worked out.

    i personally don't like/use stuff that's tied to other stuff, like your mouse/keyboard combo.
