I am going to toss something out there to ponder, but am not sure how to test for it.

The issue seems to be USB related.
Is there enough power going to the ports?
What is the PSU wattage?
Generally factory built computers are under powered with the PSU's.
It seems to be more specific to a particular model (GX280). It would be interesting to find out if the PSU's and main boards are identical.
What are the voltages on the board?

Download and install PC Wizard 2010

Run the program and it will analyze your computer and then display the results.
In the upper left hand corner click on the floppy icon.
You will get a save as screen.
Change the range bullet "only this selection" to be "selected category".
Make sure that text is selected for format.
Click on ok and you will be given a spot to save it to.

Attach it to your response.

Had my Dell Demension 4700 since 2004. Today I got this error for the first time. I read all the posts and proceded to unplug any USB devices. I turned the computer back on and it booted. Thank you all for your input. Will see if this continues to happen or if it's a one time occurrance.

I'm a techsupport person here at my job. Just got this (Ithr)error on one of our Dell Optiplex 745. Tried some of the suggestions from this thread. None worked. The problem wound up being a hard disk drive problem. Swapped it out with a known working hard disk drive and it booted up normally.

This issue is almost always caused by blown capacitors.
Open your computer case, look at the motherboard.
If you have any of these:

then you need to replace the board. Or if you're savvy, replace the capacitors.

Just had this problem myself, unplugged Bluetooth and memory stick from front USB ports, switched on, pressed F2 to go into setup, cleared the event log and exited setup. Computer booted up fine. Inserted Bluetooth - no problem, inserted memory stick - not recognised. Memory stick dead, GX280 Alive.

Memory can cause this issue if it is BAD.
put 2GB in and had lines across screen, then eventually got this error message.
Pulled both sticks and replaced one at a time.
One came up with lines across screen the other did not.
the one that had lines across the display resulted in the error.
The other one fired up the machine with no problems apart from the memory size error upon next boot with it in.
System working fine apart from being 1Gb down.
