When you resume a Windows 2000-based computer from hibernation, if the computer is connected to a Universal Serial Bus (USB) 1.1 hub device, the USB 1.1 hub device may not work correctly. Additionally, a yellow exclamation mark is displayed next to the device when you view it in Device Manager.

When you double-click the device in Device Manager, you receive the following error message in the Device status box on the General tab:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
This problem also occurs when you plug a USB device into a USB 1.1 hub device that is connected to your computer after you resume your computer from hibernation.
This problem occurs when the FSLargestDataPacket field of the HcFmInterval register is not set correctly when the computer resumes from hibernation. In this scenario, the host controller does not transfer data across the bus.
