I can not re-boot from the OS w/out loosing my mouse/keyboard and USB. All works fine if just turning on or "warm boot" button. I have duel boot with two XP Pro's (One set the way I like for gaming) and have the problem booting from ether OS.
I'm running an ABit AN7. Ath. 3000+, 512 RAM
Any Idea's on how to correct this?
Are your mouse and keyboard USB?
Did this start after installing SP1?
Have you disabled the PnP XP service?
From MS Support:
4. Help! My USB Controller isn’t working now!
After upgrading to XPSP1 supported USB 2.0 Host Controllers still display an exclamation point in device manager and do not function.
Remove the unknown device from Device Manager and choose “Scan for hardware changes.” The USB 2.0 Host Controller will be correctly detected and installed.
5. Help! My Mouse and other USB devices aren’t responding now
After performing a clean install of the service pack USB devices show up as “unknown device” in Device Manager under Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
Other advice from NeoWin Support:
Remove all USB drivers.
Then all of your USB drivers will reinstall themselves.
Best I can do without more info
