I had the same problem with a dell optiplex at work, running 10.2
64bit on a dualcore pentium d.

I had "CPUFREQ=0" appended to the kernel params to get rid of the
messages saying cpu scaling not supported.

Found that i could enable cpu clock scaling in the bios, which led to
working cpu throttling, AND to working USB ports!! Now, I dunno if
the solution works for you... and especially, i do not know the
connection between being able to throttle the cpu clock, and being
able to use usb... but it helped in my case. YMMV.
