I am having the exact same problem with nForce 790i SLW running xp pro. I just reformatted the drive and reloaded windows fresh. It ran for 2 weeks fine with no software. I loaded the work applications and it has blue screened with usbport.sys many times.
The only difference here is that I am using a usb mouse now. There are no other usb ports being used.
This problem with this board has been driving me crazy for 3 years now. It runs fine for a few months then blue screens 10 times in 1 day, then it runs fine for another month or so then blue screens many times.
The application software started getting corrupted, so I decided a fresh install.
I am going to check the bios version,
On their website the latest are
Since it is a fresh install from the original CD, I will update to these programs and let you know if it is better.

I disabled the USB ports in bios and I have never seen anything like that! It displays 4 characters per second on the bios screen! it starts to boot windows then it blue screens telling me that the bios now is not ACPI compliant. Turned the USB on to 1.0 and it does same thing. Back to "1.0 & 2.0", it boots windows and bluescreens again with IRQL not less or equal.
Now it wants to re-activate windows!
Looks like the BIOS on the boot screen is SZ10, it says "I790SZ10".
Just got off the phone with evga, the mB is 132-yw-e179-F-6a61mev9c ... on their website, they only have the update for M/B E180. They emailed me the ISO and floppy version of bios E179-sz17
They said that I have a "Limited motherboard". Flash worked. Had to "reactivate windows" again. it found new motherboard devices that looks like a modem. There are new comm ports in bios.
Looks good. It bluescreened 12x this afternoon and not at all since I updated the bios.
IF YOU HAVE "i179sz10" on your boot screen update the bios to sz19... THE DZ19 bios is only for motherboards that says "i180" on the splash screen
Good Luck with your computers if you have the same problem, I hope this helps you resolve the problem quickly.
