Here we go again,
my xp notebook constantly displays the "usb device not recognized" etc.
I don't have any usb devices plugged in!
Also, i get the pop up, up to 4 times when i open the top on the netbook.
It's an msi U210.
xp home
sp3
Thanks in advance

Perhaps you can try USBDEview to identify and possibly delete that "USB device"?

You'll see an history of devices that were once connected. In "green", you'll see the devices presently connected.

I'm starting to wonder if that's the device giving you that error message. It could be one of the other ones in the list, even if it's not showing Connected. Do you have many?
