I have been unable to resolve my problem of not being able to get USB working , either with the on board USB , or  with a new add on trust 5 port  usb  2.0 controller  card .

I have tried the usual (uninstalling / re installing ) but I still get unable to load drivers code 39 in device Mgr
Currently I have disabled the USB in the BIOS & am currently only trying to get the Trust add on card to work , thus eliminating the IBM internal hardware .

If you require furthe info let me know .  
Win XP SP3 on a Thinkcentre 8084 / 77G

Go to registry editor:
Go to the following key
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR
Than, in the right pane you will find a string value called Start. Changes its value to 3

Just try the solutions suggested, if that does not work than the best solution will be to repair the OS which will definately resolve the problem.

Do one thing... Go to C:\windows\inf   folder (this is hidden). you will find a file called USBSTOR.inf, try opening that file, and let me know are you able to open it, if yes than, right click on that file and click on install.
