W2K adv. server wireless keyboard / mouse operation problem

My wireless keyboard and mouse seem to lag every now and then, and startsup slow. The keyboard and mouse are showing up in my event viewer as errors on shutdown/startup.
OS: W2K advanced server
Keyb/mouse: Logitech wireless optical desktop, connected through usb. installed latest drivers from logitech (fixed few w2k issues).

Anybody any ideas how to solve this riddle.

During shutdown the mouse gives the following error:
source: mouclass
description:
Could not enable interrupts on connected port device \Device\PointerClass0.

During startup the keyboard drivers give the following errors:
source: kbdclass
description:
Could not enable interrupts on connected port device .
AND
source: kbdclass
description:
Could not enable interrupts on connected port device \Device\KeyboardClass0.

I have no other errors in the viewer.

Could have something to do with the usb settings?
the IRQ conflicts i've got are:
System Information report written at: 27-12-200
[Conflicts/Sharing]

Resource     Device
IRQ 22     Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System
IRQ 22     NEC PCI to USB Open Host Controller
IRQ 23     Asustek USB Enhanced Host Controller
IRQ 23     Creative SB Live! series
IRQ 23     Intel(R) 82801BA/BAM USB Universal Host Controller - 2444

Could be the problem, but cannot test, I don't know where to set the irq values in w2k.... :( I can see the resources sheets, but not change them (allthough being admin). I can't find settings in progs from manufactorers either and fooling around in the registry is a bit too scary for me.

Is this the problem? => the usb's sharing irq with soundcard & acpi drivers). And if so can somebody tell me how to fix it?
or if not perhaps help me with figuring out what the problem is.

Cheers,
Rob

I am presuming you have the latest drivers for these devices.

With ACPI Win2000 configures the IRQ's most of the devices the user cannot change them.

First tnx for swift reply.

Hmmm, I got the latest latest drivers (1 week old and just rechecked). And checked my bios and pnp support is turned off (following the article).

So does not help so far.

nope, they haven't on the same machine, but they have on a different machine (less spec-ed) with the same software setup. only other difference in hardware apart from speed is the usb 2.0 ports on my new motherboard...

Commented:
You have installed the USB 2.0 drivers correct? USB 2.0 isn't native to Win2000. They should be available using the Windows Update.
