    I recently purchased these items:

    Motherboard: K7VTA3
    Processor: Athlon 1.4gig 266 + Fan
    RAM: 3 x 256mb PC2100

    These are the other components in my PC:

    GeForce2 MX, Seagate HD, IBM HD, Iomega ZIP, CDRW, Siig 1394 Card, D-Link 10/100 NIC, Origo 56kb v.90 USB Modem, Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer, Wacom Intuos A5. I am running Windows 2000 with service pack 2.

    Problem: After using any USB device for a certain amount of time it will stop responding (this is using the two on-board USB ports - not the expansion ports). The only way I can make the device start working again is to restart the computer. If there are two USB devices connected then they both stop responding at the same time. I have installed the latest VIA 4in1 and the VIA USB Filter Driver and this does not help.

    Any ideas? I'm gonna take the motherboard back sometime and get a different one...

    Is this direct off the board or via the adaptor cable? Have you tried the other set?

    All I can say is the problem is I think more likely a software one, although it may be induced by hardware...

    I have a **** digital camera the plugs into USB, and occasioanlly while pulling pictures off it it kills all the usb on the computer - only a reboot will help.

    Not that this is particularly relevant to you except that it may well be worthwhile reinstalling :(

    kna: it happens both from the expansion usb ports and the usb ports on the mobo. it also happens when i take the expansion usb things off.

    gordy: it doesn't just happen with my mouse - other peripherals like my wacom intuos pad do it too. and anyway, i don't want to have crappy PS2 mouse.

    i do *not* want to reinstall win2k and everything in it...
