N1000c power cycles when USB device is connectedLocked
Compaq N1000c with 512 Meg Ram.
All other features as standard.
OS: XP SP2 + all OS updates.
When i connect any of 4 different brand/size USB keys the laptop power cycles without warning.
These keys work fine on other laptops and PC’s.
Have completely re-installed OS from scratch, to no avail (didn’t think to test before applying MS Updates).
Any Suggestions (other than get a newer laptop)?
