  I had a similar problem with kernel 2.6.x.
My problem was that my PS/2 mouse died.

The fix was to disable USB legacy support (DOS) in the BIOS.
My motherboard is an ASUS Slot-A Athlon (K7V ?)

This took a long time and lots of searching the net to find.
I don't use USB, I tried compiling with no USB support, linux nousb.
Nothing worked untill I changed the BIOS.
