hi
i have got a very strange problem.... if i have any USB items plugged in, my computer fails to boot....
its an AMD 1800+ 256ram XP pro sp2
ive recently fitted a new HD, clean install, and its started having this problem.
if i have ANY USB devices connected it gets as far as the XP loading screen the just stops, at the reboot is says about the boot failure, and whould i like to boot normally, use last good boot, etc
no USB connected - boots just fine, then connect USB - no problems
ive tried the USB drivers and all seems ok
cheers

sounds as if your usb is acting as the first boot up choice when connected.keep pressing del on boot up and go in to bios and make sure that cd is first boot up choice and your hard drive second choice do this without the usb connected

This behavior may occur if the Lexmark printer management program, Lexmark MarkVision, is installed on the computer, and the Lexbce Server service that is installed by the program prevents the Windows Server service from starting correctly. As a result, other Windows services that depend on the Server service do not start, and the computer may appear to stop responding (hang) at startup.
searched on google..may be of help

no lexmark software/hardware installed.
that link isnt working at the moment, just getting The Requested Web Page is Not Available
but, i think you do have something there.... could it be something in the USB preventing the Windows Server service from starting?

Description: The TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper Service depends on the NetBIOS over TCP/IP service which failed to start because of the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

If Exchange is installed, you may also record:

3. Select Use this device (enable).

4. Use Regedt32 to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon.

5. Double-click DependOnService.

8. Exit Regedt32.

9. Shutdown and Restart your computer.
