Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
I can't reboot my windows XP unless I unplug all my USB connections. When I try and reboot it says something about the USB 4
This problem might occur because "USB 4" might be a bootable device. To
prevent "USB 4" from booting, Enter your BIOS and go to the 'boot
Set it in this order: 1. CD/DVD Drive 2. Removable Devices 3. HDD.
IF that does not work, place HDD as the second priority and Removable Devices as the third.
To enter your bios, Hit F2, F12, or Delete repeatedly. I am not sure which key it is for your motherboard, but hitting all those buttons should do the trick.

Solution for the problem:
1. The solution is just to "Turn off the computer and unplug it from the power supply" (Unplugging is necessary as today even after turning the system off, the motherboard continues to get power).
2. Let the system remain off for about a minute.
3. Restart the system and wait for it to boot completely before inserting the drive again.
You can try this solution also. Run devmgmt.msc in the run box. Assuming that the USB is in inserted state, click onScan for Hardware changes under the Action menu. USB should be detected now.
That's it the problem will not appear again.
