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 .

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.

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.
