Why is my Usb Pci Card Acting Up? Works & Sometimes Doesn't

I don't know why but I've been having a weird problem with my 5 port usb pci card for about half a year now. All the ports work well except one of them. Whenever I plug a device into the port on the far left my pc will just freeze. & I have to shut my pc off by holding the power button down on my computer tower for 5 seconds, and than turn it back on. The funny thing is at other times when I plug something into this problem port it works fine. I just don't get why this is happening... & this is happening with any device I plug into that port. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and just freezes my pc.

Is there a way for me to fix this? Please help me.

& if you wonder why I finally come to as about this... Well today I plugged in a new usb hdd enclosure I purchased right into the port next to the problem port and my pc restarted! Ohh ohhh what's going on now? I haven't plugged anything back into the usb card now... I've had it until I find the problem out. This might be somewhat related to the issue I'm having on another thread that is somewhat of a software/hardware issue and is kind of why I couldn't state it in this post so please read this too, and you might learn more:


Thank you very much for your time.

Might be broken. I would contact the manufacture if the card is still under warranty.
