Hey lads,

So I am not a computer genius, but I am not completely clueless and I have been struggling with this issue for a while now. I have searched high and low trying to find a solution.

My computer will recognize the two usb ports on the rear of my cpu (I also have 2 on the front). The two on the front however are not only not recognized in Device Manager, but when I plug a device such as my thumb drive or mouse it seems to turn the power off of the rear ports. Eg. If my mouse is plugged into one of the USB ports on the rear, and I plug my thumb drive into one of the front ports, my mouse will completely turn off and will not return until the other device is unplugged and Windows is restarted. I am not sure if this is a driver or hardware issue or what, but any help would be much appreciated as I am a student who has very little money to replace things.

Computer Specs as follows:

Asus Computer with Intel Pentium 4 CPU, 2.40GHz
512 MB of RAM
Windows XP PRO SP3
NVidia Geforce 100/200 graphics card

I am not sure what other info you may need, but if you ask I will tell.

Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope lol.
