I've also had a weird problem with an Asus box [a Nova P22 box], if I
wanted to get to the BIOS properly I had to unplug all USB devices that
weren't required; one of the devices was interfering with even seeing
anything on the screen.  I can't remember what the device was.

It may have been an Asus monitor with USB ports / speakers, etc ... from
memory.  It was strange though.
