USB Controller usb-uhci hangs while booting

Many times my linux server hangs while booting and it stops at USB Controller (usb-uhci), I am using linux version 2.4.20.

This is not consistent and I couldn't find any exact pattern, when it happens, many times it goes through but many times it hangs.

I have dual O/S on that PC (linux & win xp).

If anybody knows any clue please email to

I tried to use modprobe to remove the controller then my mouse and keyboard stopped working, any idea on this issue??????????????
