USB ports

He there,

I have tried my digital camera into two USB ports on the front and now one on the back and every time it pops up that it has detected the device then the computer locks up completely and i have to use main power switch to turn it off. i thought it might be the camera itself so i tried my webcam in the same ports and it does exactly the same thing.

anybody got any ideas as to what might be causing this?

Hi, try refreshing the usb ports.

In Device Manager uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB. Then reboot PC and let XP find and install new hardware.

Hmmm, not done that before. Anyway, boot into Safe Mode (tap F8 repeatedly), then try a System Restore back to before the problem started.

Good luck.
