Default Problems with USB 2.0 Card

hi, when i instal my usb card (Ali 2.0) onto my pc (windows 98SE), i can use my scanner (usb, not parallel) just about 1 maybe 2 times, then every time i start my computer, when im working it just restarts randomly... it does this often. It's not until i remove the USB card that it discontinues shutting down on it's own. please help me, i have many things that need a usb port, and i don't have a USB card that i can use. I would like to get it installed sometime soon...if you can help me, please do so...thanks! God bless.

do all windows updates. 98se sucks with usb support. I would upgrade to XP or at least 2000

yes, Win98 doesn't work with USB well.
You may try to use a new driver or patch (try to search it on
Another problem is a power unit. If you have a little power unit you may have a problem with it because USB needs much power than most of devices and ports.
Can you write - your OS restarts when you connect USB device to USB port or when you work without USB devices?
