usb freeze

  civicr 20:14 08 Oct 2007

Hi all ,
My friend has a problem , that when she plugs in a usb pen drive , the keyboard and mouse dont work.
The light goes out on the keyboard , but when you unplug and plug back in they are found and start working . Its as the system has not enough power to cope with the pen drive as well .
Any ideas.
xp home
usb mouse / keyboard.
If i was to build a new pc , which are the best sites to get parts from.

Your friend could overcome the lack of power by connecting a Powered USB Hub, get one with four ports for future use.

I am not qualified to advise you on PC Parts.
