Recently, I replaced the factory motherboard & processor that came with my emachines desktop(Model W1500) with a GigaByte 7KVM400 and an XP 2400+ proc. I didn't replace the case because I didn't have the money at the time, so I used the existing case.
Afterwards, I upgraded to xp-pro sp2 and since then I cannot shutdown at <b>all</b>. Windows hangs everytime after the 'saving your settings' dialog and I must hold the power button until the machine shuts off. Furthermore, whenever I have my usb mouse(mx510) plugged into it's port at boot time, the start up process lags for almost 4 minutes, and when windows comes to, the mouse does not work. I must unplug/replug for it to function. If anyone has had an experience similar to this, help would be appreciated.
