I used to get this with XP and an external backup drive. Look in the BIOS for a setting that might cause the computer to recognise a USB device. Look first in the boot sequence (HDD, Floppy etc) I`m sure it was something in the BIOS that our IT guy changed to resolve the issue.

enter the SetUp Utility (BIOS)
Use the Arrow keys to highlight Chipset Features Setup and press Enter.
Use the Arrow keys to highlight Enable the USB port and Legacy Support (or USB Mouse Support) mow use the Page Up and Page Down keys to set it to Enabled.
Save and Exit (normally F10)
