A technician could not solve the problem so it was sent back to the manufacturer under gaurantee and a new motherboard was fitted.
I got the pc back Six weeks later (bloody [bleep] what were they doing?!) to find that it booted up fine, and both hard drives were still perfectly in tact =D
Upon plugging in my Digital Camera to the USB port, the computer rebooted itself and kept doing so until I unplugged the cable.
It also does this with the printer and my nokia phone cable.
I take it something has gone wrong with the USB Driver or something?
I presumed it was the driver, but reinstalling windows has no effect.
Nor does booting from the other hard drive and trying through that way.
The mouse worked fine (its also USB) until I reinstalled service pack 2, which is very strange...
Is it likely there is a hardware error? If so is it possible to fix without having to buy a whole new USB card
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance
ps. listing any specific hardware doesnt seem neccesary but i can do if required
