Hi - have tried to search the forum but USB and XP are not allowed in searches !

I have any number of USB devices, phone, printer, camera, card reader, etc etc.

If I leave any of them connected prior to a boot. I get as far as the motherboard splash screen and thats it - nothing more. (its a Syntax Mobo)

If I unplug the devices then I get my OS back.

Any ideas ??
