HELP !!

Having a strange problem with the USB 2.0 controller on this MOBO.
Anytime I plug in a USB 2.0 device (1.1 devices work OK) the system
either does not see it, or freezes up completely. This depends on the
driver I use but either way, the USB 2.0 devices just don't work unless
the 2.0 controller is disabled or uninstalled.

I have just run into this problem on a new installation of Win2k Pro
and never had the issue before. I've run multiple OS's including XP
Pro, Home, and Win 2k Pro and Server. I find it hard to believe that
it is just happening now and was never an issue before. I am wondering
if it could be the Windows updates that could be the culprit. Any Help
is VERY MUCH appreciated....I've tried everything that I know how to at
this point and I have to get this system up and running with an
external 2.0 drive!!

-changed drivers to and from intel to gigabyte to NEC etc...
-updated mobo bios to current F9
-using all current onboard sound, LAN, and INF drivers
-using service pack 4 with all latest Windows security updates.

Win2k pro on GA-8IEXP, Intel P4 2.4b processor, 1024 meg kingston mem,
64 meg AGP and PCI cards, 160 GB seagate, LG 16x8 DVDR

TIA,

JMAN

Ummmm,
It has ever since I've been using it.....(4+ years)
I think maybe you are thinking about NT.....
