USB 2.0 Composite Reboot

Hello all,

With all the plug in devices my kids have I purchased a hub yesterday made by Belkin to plug into the back of a USB 2.0 card I installed a few months ago. Everything went fine on the start up except I keep having the same thing happen. When XP recognizes the new USB Composite hub, when it tries to load a driver for it, it goes black and reboots. When I don't have it plugged in, no problems. Is there a different driver or maybe some power settings that I can do? Any and all answers are greatly appreciated. P.S. If this log is too long, I apologize... I didn't know what information anyone might need.

Try the hub on the onboard USB, not all hubs like going through separate USB cards.

Be that as it may, for troubleshooting, plug it in an onboard USB port and see if the same thing happens.
