USB drives not there and computer reboots when inserting/taking out flash drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a Gateway computer running windows xp media edition 2002 service pack 3.  There are several issues:  1.  Computer reboots when inserting or removing flash drive from usb port.  2.  usb drives seem to be nowhere on the computer (ie: when I open disk managment, only the cd drive is listed) 

    It seems like the computer recognizes when I put in the the flash stick or mouse or whatever..it makes the normal sound. 

    Not sure where to start with this.  Have looked online for fixes but most assume the usb drive shows up in disk managment.
