A very strange problem that I have come across. I have 2 Sony VAIO laptops (TZ and Y series) and 2 Samsung NC10s at home. When I have my HTC desire connected via USB to the laptops for charging, I see a strange Start/ReStart/Boot behavior. - Both the VAIOs don't boot... they start, reach the VAIO splash screen and then don't go any further. The booting process just halts. - The Samsungs don't have any problem in booting. They booth just fine with the phone connected. Has anyone faced this problem? I tried changing the boot order on VAIO, forcing it to boot using the internal hard drive only (thinking maybe its taking HTC Desire as one of the boot drives for some reason) - but it didn't help anyway. Anyone has any ideas whats happening?
