I just sold my old computer to a friend of mine, and he just called me and said that when he plugs his I-pod into any of the usb ports, the computer instantly shuts down. Seems odd, the usb ports worked fine for me, but I only plugged my printer and zip250 into them. Any suggestions??

kaxx –[USB and Ipod shutdown PC]
6th Feb 2006

just sold my old computer to a friend of mine, and he just called me and said that when he plugs his I-pod into any of the usb ports, the computer instantly shuts down. Seems odd, the usb ports worked fine for me, but I only plugged my printer and zip250 into them. Any suggestions??


Need more information – but generally the problem may be –

1- Need to update ipod driver
2- Possible conflict with Video or other resource

Open – [Device Manager] – Locate USB Controller Host & ipod Folder – and Update Driver there or go to [System Info] & find – [System Resource] Folder & look at [IRQ Resource] to see what IRQ Resource the ipod is using and sharing with -

Depending how old PC is – Easiest repair would be – Just purchase an USB Expansion CARD if Desktop or an USB PCMCIA Card if Laptop – See Link

Thanks, I'm actually gonna try that tomorrow. My friend's bringing over his 4 port card. I just wish I didn't have to do that as I'm limited to 2 slots on the mobo.
