This is an update to the problem I posted about a week ago. Finally figured out what was screwing with my system, just have no idea how to fix it. Any help'd be most appreciated
As long as I plug in the USB keyboard/mouse 1-2 seconds after turning on the power, the system's fine. However, if I turn the power on or reboot with either of the USB devices plugged in, the system fails to boot just as the Award BIOS, press DEL or F12 screen shows up. Tried plugging 'em into the rear and front panels, no luck. BIOS and drivers are up to date and the USB ports are all enabled. Goggled without much luck.
The mouse came with a PS2/USB converter thingie and works fine when I use that. Comfort key didn't come with one, so I'm using a PS2 keyboard for now.
Both devices work without any issues on my laptop. Also works on the new PC so long as I plug 'em in later.
Trying to look for a solution that doesn't involve coughing up more money. It's a minor issue, but still bothers me quite a bit, so I'd really appreciate any help
