Alex (and all the rest), thanks for the great tips. I've determined the
true source of the problem: the reason why the PC was sitting around
and not in use was that the USB ports on it were dead. That would explain
why it did nothing when I plugged in devices. It's going to be e-wasted
and I'll find another system.

Thanks all for your time,
