    At work we have a gx270 mini tower pc that was ghosted with XP Pro (ghost
    image may be for a gx270 slim line PC) The USB ports on the back of the
    sometimes work and sometimes they don't, e.g.,
    two different usb drives are used by the same user. Both drives are always
    recognized per beep and the remove usb device icon that appears in the
    system tray, but sometimes the drives aren't available and don't show up in
    My Computer or Device Manager. Rebooting the PC will usually cause the USB
    to be recognized. Any idea what's going on with the USB ports? Hiow can I
    fix the problem?

    Thanks,

    Mike
