Windows 7: Inserting any USB object, causes Windows to freeze up.

Is it only the front USB's that are causing it to freeze? Do the USB's on the Motherboard work fine?

Its a laptop.

I only have 3 USB Ports, 1 on the left, 2 on the right.

Uninstalling those things/restarting didn't work Dinesh.

I'm having the exact same problem with my computer. Only USB thing that doesn't cause a freeze-up is a wlan stick, but 2 usb-sticks and a usb hard drive causes windows 7 to completly freeze. I have updated my chipset drivers and done everything I could imagine that would help but still no luck.

If someone finds a solution, please post it!

How about a BIOS update?

BIOS is as up-to-date as possible. HP is the only place to get a BIOS update for my board.

Last BIOS Update was a few weeks after SP2 for Vista, that was to address compatibility issues.

I have been having the exact same issue as DarkNova and have not been able to find a solution to the issue.

I have found however If I plug the USB before I start it, or resume from sleep it will work 100 precent of the time. If I plug the USB in while the OS is up and running it will freeze about 4/10 times... which has gotten very annoying.


I noticed it started after I upgraded from a previous version of 7... So it might just be a bug in the RC operating system.

Could it be a bad install? If you have Ultimate Nova than make a VHD of a Windows 7 image and add it to the bootloader....run the VHD and see if the issues occurs
