Try and boot into safe mode (with networking) and update the driver if it doesn't crash.
Thanks buwish for your reply, I have all the latest drivers and even Device Manager tells me it's working properly.
All USB ports work except when I tried to install a new TV card but that wouldn't work either. I thought it was probably a driver problem as well but maybe it's just one of those conflicts in the mad computer world. My computer knowledge maybe isn't up for this one. Thx again.
