yes, just been on the phone with dell support for an hour, problem persists and they suggested a bios 04 problem, now flashed back to 03, pc working again. Will have to wait for new version I guess
ps now you mention it, at start up the pc showed an error stating that devices would work faster if connected to 2.0 USB ports, funny thing is that my pc only has 2.0 USB's

funny thing is that I have a qx9650 that worked fine with 03, system problems started with 04!
There have been reports of USB Ports not functioning after a Microsoft update from Tuesday:
