A BIOS update is highly recommended, Jens. We'll try something. If it doesn't work, I recommend a PCI USB adapter card:
Look in Device Manager under "Computer". If it's ACPI, let's change it to "Standard PC":
1. Reinstall Windows 2000 from within Win2K (run Setup on the CD) and (on reboot) press F5 when you see "Setup is inspecting hardware..." and select the Standard PC HAL when prompted. Continue by using the Repair > Fast Repair (no Recovery Console and no Emergency Repair Disk) method. This is the technique I recommend.
2. An easier, but less sure fix is to change the driver for "Computer" in Device Manager to Standard PC and restart. Go to the Driver tab and click Update driver > Next> Display a list...> Show all...> Standard PC. Although this technique works for me, I have heard of systems that will not restart when it's used. A word to the wise...
Afterward, go to Control Panel > Power Options > APM and enable APM.
: Hi Bill and thanks for your time! Here's the report. Unfortunatly the information is in swedish since my OS (Win2000 pro) is swedish. I guess you might figure things out anyway. As you can see no USB around. Is this the problem? No IRQ-number attached to it? If so how do I make it happen?
