You may have an IRQ conflict between windows and your BIOS. If you can, disable USB in the BIOS and see if windows will load. If it does. Use sysinfo to see if you actually have a free IRQ for USB. USB doesn't like to share them.

Ok i had this very same problem I can help you dearly. If you have a 1st main board the bastards force you to install there whole driver kit for the usb ports to work. Then you have to go into your bios and enable USB under the perphials section.
