and reinstalled XP. What else are you not telling us?
1.) Typical behavior if the USB-2 drivers have not been installed.
2.) Same on the hard drive drivers.
Have you reinstalled all the motherboard drivers?
3.) WMP does not come with codecs for DVDs. You need DVD player software.
Just as the title says. Here are my problems:
1) USB devices: My computer won't boot if there's a USB device plugged in. It just stays frozen at the POST stage. I can't reboot with ctrl-alt-delete; I need to turn it off using the power button.
Also, if I plug a USB device (iPod Nano) in after Windoze loads, I get a message in the taskbar saying that "this device can perform faster" if I had a USB 2.0 port. This is strange because all my USB ports, on the back of my motherboard, and on the side of the case, are USB 2.0.
2) Hard drive: My SATA150 hard drive is being recognized as an ATA133 drive in the BIOS.
Also, in my taskbar I have the Safely Remove Hardware icon. When I click on it, it gives me the option to safely remove the C drive. I don't know if this could be called a problem; it's just a little worrying to have the option to "safely remove" my hard drive.
3) DVD: When I try to play a DVD using Windows Media Player, I get a message saying, "Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed on your computer."
Here are my system specs:
DFI nF4-DAGF motherboard
Athlon 64 3700+ socket 939
2*512MB generic DDR400
Western Digital 250GB SATA
Thermaltake TR2 430 watt power supply
Cooler Master Cavalier case
Windows XP Home
Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can provide.
