Question about Acer Aspire 5101WLMi Notebook
...whenever I plug anything into one of the USB ports.
I have an acer aspire 5101 laptop and it was fine on xp.

Hopefully, You have your old xp files on your hard drive still (old dxutilities or files). You'll need to basically extract the driver for the usb ports form there and add it to your vista drivers list, but with vista, you never know. I stayed with xp because of ALL the problems vista is having.
If you can't find the driver in your old utilities, check your hardware profiles and get MFR name and type of usb (1.0 or 2.0 ...) and get the driver from them and install it to vista. Like I said, with vista, you never know, it may and say it installed, but it may not have. I hope this helps you.

Uninstall Vista because there are too many protections on software that used to work on XP. Vista was discontinued because of this. try installing XP service Pack 3. All your problems with anything in connection with Vista will disappear.
