Thats a Jetway 530CF. See www.jetway.com.tw/evisn/download/
Under the bios section there is a latter upgrade dated 09/27/2k but that appears to be only support for AMD K2 500+ cpus
What exactly is the usb problem? Mine is ok.

Thanks folks for the replies. I will try the updated version(s) sometime in the next couple of days.

The problem I have is that if 'USB Controller' is set to 'Enabled' in the Integrated Peripherals set-up screen, the machine takes ages (>15 mins) to boot due to 'msgsvr32.exe' hanging. By pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and ending that task, machine boots up OK, works OK and the USB is OK. I am hoping to find a cleaner way of booting up.

Slightly different topic - on the PNP/PCI Configuration Screen, can anyone explain exactly how the 'Resources Controlled By' and 'Reset Configuration Data' settings are supposed to do.
