PC reboots when I connect any USB device

The PC is an old 'all in one' which hasnt been used in a while, I dug it out upgraded the RAM and put on a clean install of XP.
It runs fine and I connected it to the net and downloaded the latest drivers for it.
The thing is its a really obscure make, as far as I know its a ECS Aio A950.
Whenever I connect a USB device the machine reboots, if I leave the device connected it boots past the post to the point windows begins then reboots again.
Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I havnt upgraded the bios, is the link you posed to the correct one for my machine?
I tried to copy and paste the part of the link I needed but just got some japanese jibberish, I looked on the ECS site but I dont know which motherboard I have.

Edit: Its ok got it http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/ProductsDetail_Download.aspx?detailid=131&DetailName=New&DetailDesc=Aio%20A950%20%20(V2.0)&CategoryID=4&MenuID=91&LanID=0

Just checked and it seems the drivers for USB 2.0 havnt installed, I downloaded them again and the installation directions are 'install the USB 2.0 EHCI package using plug and play INF installation procedures'
I havnt got a clue what this is or how to do it!!

Usually you can just right click on the inf file and select install.

You might want to check XP is fully patched too by going to http://update.microsoft.com/ it may discover what you need missing and provide it.

XP comes with USB2.0 drivers, so as a last resort if all else fails try right-clicking My Computer, then going to properties, hardware, drivers and deleting everything in the USB section, then shut-down/restart so it can try reinstalling them.
