crap, when i went to install my usb printer today, nothing happened. it is supposed to be plug and play but it wont get recognized. i went to look at the properties of the usb ports and they say they are working properly. i uninstalled them all and checked for hardware changes and they installed back. after they installed, a power surge on the usb error came up. this came up the first time I installed the usb drivers, but I disregarded it because it said the problem could be solved (or something like that) by pressing the reset after clicking on the ballon. i looked around on the internet and they say this is a serious error on some sites and on other sites, they say this isnt an important error and should be turned off. i am running xp service pack 2 which should have all the drivers in their already (thats the ones i installed too because thats wut the asus usb driver installation said to do). i am using a 530j cpu (3.0ghz, 200mhz fsp, prescott core), a p5gdc deluxe from asus (my mobo), and 512mb ddr memory (pc3200).
i need help/information on this usb surge error and help as to why my usb dont work.
note: i tried all the the ports and tried to connect my usb digital camera too (which didnt work either) and when I try to connect something that has a led light or something, it doesnt power up.
