I'm having an annoying problem today.

My PC is telling me this when I try to plug my Logitech USB headset.

"USB device not recognized"

It's weird since I've been using this headset for over a year...he shoudl know my headset by now!

I'm using Windows XP sp3 on a Dell XPS 600(Pentium D)

Any advices on how to solve this?

Start-->control panel-->system-->hardware tab-->device manager-->expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers-->right click and uninstall all of the USB root hubs-->restart-->they will reinstall on restart, and look for new hardware.

That's weird...

I thought I had a Hard Disk problem yesterday. I wasn't able to boot my PC, was stuck at the Dell loading screen.
I thought my PC wasn't detecting my HD anymore so I took out the HD, cleaned it a bit and put it back and it was all good.
But I just found out what was the real problem.
My PC can't boot if my headset is plugged. I just tried it a few times and every time my headset is still plugged, the PC won't boot and when I remove it, it all works fine.

How can a headset block your whole PC?

Your headset shouldn't stop the boot process.

Get in the BIOS, and make sure your hard drive is the first boot device. Also, make sure your audio drivers are installed and updated.
