Does'nt matter WHICH USB port I plug into, it causes an immediate shut-down and reboot...what in the HELL would cause this ?
I redid entire sytem: Win-XP-Home (OEM disk) SP3, Live OneCare, 2gb Ram, 500 GB HD, Belkin internal USB card (5ports: 4 ext, 1 internal) Netgear Wireless pci adapter/card, Diamond 56k modem...nothing terribly radical. All obligatory Compaq/HP drivers (except Ethernet card) were downloaded and installed without any hassle.
I do not have the Compaq/HP restore disks available to me as this is 2nd hand machine.
I am having the same problem with a Compaq D310M. When a flash drive is inserted the computer immediately reboots. I dont believe it is a short. This problem is occuring in a school computer lab and is consistant on all 28 computers. I have tried several different usb drives and always get the same problem. I tried removing the device controllers for the usb and letting xp reinstall them. This did not work. I have also installed all of the USB related patches available from HP's support and drivers site.

Re: Creepy 'USB' issues...
During setting up computer with drivers etc. System file could have become faulty some files not registered in System You could have System file errors these files are the heart of O/S whereas the reg is the blood if System file are faulty things do not work properly. Go to C:\ right click properties / Tools / error check new box popsup tick little box to fix errors and reboot On reboot windows will check disk for errors and fix them If this does not help please email me at email@example.com Give a details description of what happens

try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
control panel administrive tools computer management device manager any yellow? ! question marks or red x will tell you that you need to reinstall the driver/s to do this right click on the ? x ! select reinstall driver also control panel admistrive tools ,computer management ,device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or if you can see your usb but its not working ports(com&lpt)right click update driver hope this helps
The cause for this is there was a short some where. It could have been the USB port, the cable or the IPOD its self.
You might try another USB port on the computer to see if you have the same problem.
If your computer will not boot then you might need to clear the flee power offf the system. You can do this by unpluging the AC power and holding in the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. Then plug back in the system and it should boot.
If the computer will not boot then you may have a ground issue. This does not happen much any more but I had this happen on a friends computer once where the case was worped and when i put my USB drive is the computer did the same as yours. The issue was the force of me putting the USB drive in shifted the board and caused it to ground out. So you may need to take everything out of the case and reseat the motherboard.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes
that’s it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because
modern computers don’t really turn off when you press the power button as the
motherboard still gets power.
The motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer
is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be
“rebooted” also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports
suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload
the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!
So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button
and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then
plug it back in. (VOILA)
i,d suggest that the ports are incorrectly wired on the motherboard headers, Or possible Bent Pin on the USB shorting out, when device is connected. 5V+ and 5V- will cause the computer to Arc, and restart.
Could be a bum board or specifically, bum usb controller on the board. Make sure you update your BIOS, and make sure the BIOS says the front USB is activated. You also want to make CERTAIN you have the USB drivers from the motherboard mfr site, because windows native drivers might not be as good as mfr drivers. Also, put a flash drive in the front USB and try to boot from it (youd prolly have to get some linux bootable OS thing to do that with, but im sure its out there somewhere), because if you can boot from a flash drive, it would mean the issue is in the windows OS, and not your bios or usb firmware. Finally, make sure there are no broken USB ports on the board itself, a messed up port on the board might corrupt the rest of them. If all that should fail, you could bypass the problem by dropping an external USB hub on the top of the machine and plugging it to the back. I know thats ugly and causes clutter, but it would solve the immediate issue: the lack of ports. Youd likely be better off with another board though because it seems that the front usb controller is simply not functioning correctly. If you do have to replace the board, get a board from the same mfr with similar features, so that windows vista will be able to start it, or you may have ro reload the OS.
hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you? Friend if you put something like usb or etc.it shut down. the problem is your power supply.your power supply dont have enough power to gve the new installed device thats why it shuts down.
Does the probem persist even if you disconnect the USB headphone? If it does, then it points to problems somewhere else in your system. If it does not, then it's very likely that the USB headphone itself is the cause.
USB headphones aren't like headphones that you just plug into your soundcard. USB headphones has their own "soundcard" that's built into the device itself. Thus USB headphones will work regardless of whether or not you had another soundcard installed. This is usually USB headphone's benefit, not being dependent on other soundcards and having its own discreet settings.
In your case though, it's also likely that the USB headphone's driver itself is causing conflicts with other parts of the system. If this is the case, it would explain why your system is freezing.
As far as the longevity of the motherboard itself... these days computer chips are producing so much heat, it's very likely that motherboards/CPU/memorhy do not last longer than 3~5 years. The parts simply break down much faster than they used to.
Unplug ALL Usb devices, that includes printers, cameras, pen drives, i.e. anything that plugs into a USB connector. Then try rebooting your computer. I bet your problem will no longer exist, but if it does, then you need to suspect a faulty USB connector on the motherboard or USB chipset located on the motherboard. Once the computer is booting normally without USB devices hooked up, you can start installing ONE Usb device at a time, until you find your defective USB device. The USB device drivers will need to be installed and computer rebooted at least once between the various devices. Not doing so will lead to confusion as to which USB device is causing your high current problem. It is also possible athough a bit unlikely that this procedure will cure your situation for the time being but look out for it in the future because it could be an early sign that one of your USB devices is going bad.
