I've heard about such a problem on Windows2000. I think it is somehow related to a bad/defective USB driver. Try re-installing new USB Drivers on your Opertaing System. good luck

Re: Removing USB device restarts PC itself

You should always be sure that you properly unmount the drive. Here's how:

1. Open the My Computer icon on the desktop.

Or, somehow display the contents of the My Computer window.

2. Locate the category heading Devices with Removable Storage.

Choose View --> Arrange Icons by --> Show in Groups if you can't find the Devices with Removable Storage area.

3. Click to select the removable disk.

In many cases, the disk has a generic icon associated with it, though some USB gizmos may sport a unique icon.

4. Choose File --> Eject from the menu.

5. Unplug or detach the USB disk drive.

Note that the icon may not disappear from the My Computer window until the device is detached.

  • Try it in a different USB port.
  • Update your Windows 2k to the latest hotfixes.
  • Try reapplying SP4.
  • Update all drivers especially your chipset drivers.
  • Apply any special specific patches Dell might have for your machine.
  • Flash the BIOS to the latest.
