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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.

I have updated all the drivers , still the same errors , I have tried doing a repair using setup on CD  but at the stage of selecting the installation on partition the option to repair is not available , I really do not want to do a clean install of XP , any other suggestions ?

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.
