Redhat 9 USB Key Issues


I've got a pretty annoying issue, I've got a usb key (Apacer 128mb) two redhat 9 pc's (Celeron 2gb 512mb ram) anyways the usb key works on the onboard ports but the front ports on the case are a different story.. they used to work but with out changing anything (Any config or anything) they fail.

With out the front ports plugged in /proc/interrupts looks like this:
0: 26576 XT-PIC timer
1: 639 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
4: 3 XT-PIC serial
5: 0 XT-PIC ehci-hcd
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
10: 39 XT-PIC serial
11: 31 XT-PIC eth0
12: 7691 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
14: 13148 XT-PIC ide0
15: 3983 XT-PIC ide1
NMI: 0
ERR: 0

With it plugged it:

0: 14637 XT-PIC timer
1: 79 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
4: 3 XT-PIC serial
5: 62 XT-PIC ehci-hcd
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
9: 0 XT-PIC usb-ohci
10: 39 XT-PIC serial
11: 319 XT-PIC usb-ohci, eth0
14: 16816 XT-PIC ide0
15: 863 XT-PIC ide1
NMI: 0
ERR: 0

I've tried with no acpi and everything but as soon as i insert the device (even a usb mouse brings the same error:

hub.c: new USB device 00:03.3-3, assigned address 2
usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=2 (error=-71)

If i plug the device in the back ports i get this in dmesg:

hub.c: new USB device 00:03.3-4, assigned address 15
usb.c: USB device 15 (vend/prod 0x1005/0xb113) is not claimed by any active driver.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I tried updating the kernel to 2.4.31-9 also flashing the bios. I also have tried different usb modules with the ports but still no luck...

Any thoughts?
