    If I plug any USB drive (memory stick) into the port after booting up, the drive will not be recognised as such (but the OS (XPSP2, all patches) recognises something in the usb port).

    If I boot up with the drive in the port, the i can pull it out and plug it back in as often as i want, and it will always be recognised.

    This is on my Dell 700m laptop.

    It used to work fine!

    Any ideas?

    cheers,
    EJ

    thanks, zeke_mo. I've installed the chipset driver, and will report back if it worked!

    well, not really, unfortunately. Anyone else have an idea?
