PC restart after plug in USB drive

choy.waigiat
Whenever I plug in a USB drive the PC will restart by itself. I tried this USB drive on another computer and it works fine.

Anything that I should check.

thanks

Assuming, of course, that you're using Windows.
Check that your USB controller drivers are correct.

hello in response to your post about your Usb problem I will advice you first scan Your computer off viruses and check your IRQ settings to ensure that the Usb's IRQ is not the same as any other peripheral. and I think this should solve your prob.

It is 99% due to short circuit, any USB have a 4 wires, two for data, the other for the power, thus if any pin is moved from its location, and plugging the USB socket will short them +vs- , it will reboot the computer.
