USB Locks Up Win 7

So here is the deal, I am using Win7 64 bit RTM on my HP s5120f. Sometimes when I plug in a USB flash drive, or card reader, or even use the built in card reader, it completely locks up and I have to shut it down. Is this a hardware or software problem? It is starting to really bug me...

Check your BIOS version and try to find the latest NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 driver.

The bios update does not work, it says I do not meet the requirements. I updated the other driver though.

I understand. The tool for applying the update is seeing Win7. You could try compatibilty mode - BUT... first test to see if your problems have been addressed.

The date of the BIOS update is telling.

Well it's working now. Turned out to be the USB drivers. I used DriverMax and that fixed it. Thanks for the help though.
