I am runing Windows XP (Home) on my notebook and have a problem connecting devices. Whenever I connect anything via USB windows completly freezes, although external speakers work fine!. I then have to manualy switch of and reboot. The items which causes it to freeze are : 1- Microsoft Mouse using latest XP software. 2- A Card Reader which is dected by Windows - no software required. 3- Trying to use Microsoft ActiveSync to connect and Sync a Pocket PC. 4- USB Blluetooth Adapter for use with Pocket PC. Can anybody suggest what is causing this problem and how to fix it. Many thanks.
