The only common denominator is the computer power supply.
It is also possible that a power regulator on the motherboard is bad. I suspect its is the 5 volt power rail. The two common supplies on your motherboard are 12 volts and 5 volts. USB uses the 5v supply.
The simplest solution is to borrow another similar power rated computer power supply and put it in yours to see if the problem is fixed. If your power supply is rated at (for example) 250 watts or even as large as 400w, make sure the replacement is the same rating or even larger ie replace 250 w with a 250 w or a 400 w, but do not use a lower rated power supply. ie dont try a 250w to replace a 400w supply.
If the problem is still there another motherboard is the likely next step.
Before spending bucks, you could try disconnecting anything not really required to see if the power supply is indeed failing (often a burning smell from the rear fan is a good indicator). Disconnect things like dvd drive, cd burner, anything on the USB ports eg printer, external hard drives, modem, extra cards inserted into the motherboard on PCI slots etc etc, but leave the mouse and keyboard if they are USB devices. This will ease the load on the power supply and/or the motherboard power regulators. Basically you want a motherboard with only RAM memory, a processor and a video card with only a keyboard, mouse and monitor and the main bootable hard drive connected, and nothing else. See if you can get it working without the extra bits attached. you could then try shutting down and re-attaching devices one by one until the problem occurs. This could either prove the last connected device is drawing too much current, or more likely the power supply is failing as the load increases.
My bet is the power supply and they are cheap to buy. Make sure you buy the right supply. It might be an ATX supply with a 20 pin main connector which attaches to the motherboard (big chunky white connector). There are 24 pin models which don't generally work on the older motherboards that use the Celeron chips.
Good luck,
Steve

I have a 512 DDR2 (533 FSB) RAM in one of my slot in Intel D102GGC2 Mother board,can i put a 2 GB DDR2 ram in another slot.If yes then What FSB will match and what is the maximum capacity of ram per slot?


This motherboard will support maximum 2 GB of total system memory. so configuration is should be 1GB + 1GB or one 2GB in one slot. If you attempt to install 2GB + 512MB, this is unsupported. but you can try if might the system can read it or not. there is no serious problem for installing memory exceed than maximum system memory...
Memory supported is DDR2 533 Mhz and DDR2 400 MHz...(sometimes on the market DDR2 533 will described as module name PC2-4200 and DDR2 400 as PC2 3200)

Hi, I need standard spec info of VGA built on Asus P5GC-MX 1333 whether 64 Mb or 128 Mb. Many thanks & regards, Richard


you can use up to a maximum of 224 mb of your computer's RAM for the onboard video chip to use. You can install a video card with any amount of memory (which would give you a lot better video performance).

Your MoBo has (1) of each PCI Express x1 & and PCI Express x16 slots, and (2) standard PCI slots. There are NO AGP bus slots on this board. You'd want to use buy a PCI Express x16 video card instead of a PCI video card due to the better performance offered by the PCI Express cards.

Here is the download  ASER support website for your model desktop.    My guess is that  the BIos was not written to see more than one GB per slot. Download a manual to confirm.
