usb keyboard thing

captain_Y said:
Hi all, I recently built a new computer: Asus P4P800 deluxe board, P4 2.8 ghz cpu, 2 256mb of Kingston PC3200 ram, and a 80 gig WD harddrive. I installed Windows XP pro without any problems, and got servcie pack 1 installed w/o any problems either. However, soon after, my computer started to reboot every few hour or so. Most of the time i'm running IE, but it has crashed on AIM, quicktime, media player, winamp, just about anything and everything. I've tried running memtest86, and it checks out fine, so no ram problems. I've checked my temperature with Asus probe, running at about 32 degrees C, so no problems there either. I've tried unchecking the automatic restart box under My Computer's properties, only to get the blue screen of death. Afterwards, the box remains checked and i still get random restarts about once per hour or two if i'm using the computer, and if its idle about once every 8 hours or so. 2 other things i have noticed, the usb keyboard does not seem to work outside of windows, I had to use a PS/2 keyboard to start my installation of windows and to run memtest86. Also, my computer used to make a few beeps when it booted up at the Asus screen, but just today it stopped beeping. Sorry for the long post, but I'm just really sick and tired of these restarts and "windows has recovered from a serious error" messages. If anyone has any suggestions, please respond/PM/email me. Your help will be appreciated!

P.S. Not only is my system restarting a lot, but IE, word, AIM, all have had to close at one time or another due to some "error", especially explorer, it screws up just as often if not more than the restarts


and the reason ur usb keyboard wont work on setup is because usb start to work when windows start thats when it gets power for use, it will not work dorin bootup. thats y its better to have a ps2 keyboard cause it will work whenever.

Windows restarting - MY solution

Okay, earlier I stated that it was the fan at fault...not so !! The problem came back shortly after they replaced the fan.,,,,,,

It was actually a faulty PSU - it was replaced with a same-spec unit and the system has been rock-steady (not a good analogy if you live on a fault-line of course) ever since.
