    There are generally multiple USB controllers built into the motherboard. It is possible one of them is bad. Try plugging everything into the front or the back and see what happens.
    And thats how you get ants!

    If its shutting down while you have other components plugged in (iPod/Headphones/etc.) then it could be a grounding issue with the Motherboard.

    You could also be exceeding the heat restrictions of the board, and its shutting itself off automatically. There is typically a Hot Point on the board, and a setting in the bios that says "Shut it off if X Temp is reached".

    Either way, if you replaced the PS, and its still randomly happening, its very likely the Mobo.

    If it were ram errors, you'd likely get a blue screen before it shut off.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Try all the USB ports as CD said. If its still spewing these DCOM errors, then it could be that chipset on the board being toasty.
