    Hello everyone.

    I noticed that if I leave the OEM Eris USB cable plugged into my tower & Eris that the tower will freeze just after CMOS flash screen during PC boot up. It took me a few minutes to figure it out and I do not know what would cause that. :thinking:

    Any idea's

    Just a guess but is it a dell? Your machine is likely trying to boot from the connected USB device. You will notice when you connect your phone that it does show up as a Removable Disk but if you double click on it you will get a message to insert the disk. Unless you mount the sd card in the phone.

    Because it is seen as a removable disk whether it is mounted or not it is fooling with your boot sequence.

    You should be able to go into the Bios for your PC and disable "Boot from usb device" or something to that effect. You could also try changing the boot order, so that booting from your hard drive is set first (it may already be)...
