Hi.Every now and then my laptop bleeps and says"This device can perform faster....."if you connect to a usb 2......"I am not plugging and unplugging anything, I know this message comes when you plug stuff in, but I'm not !!
Can't explain why it happens but..When it comes up click on the balloon and at the bottom of the window that opens you can turn off the messages.
Try uninstalling all USBs in device manager, then reboot and let the computer reinstall them.
Bollocks. Your USB port(s) is 1.0.My old laptop was same. It is fine for printers and mice and that is all.You cannot upgrade by software, only by buying USB 2.0 hardware addons.I bought a PCMCIA card USB 2.0 for my laptop from Currys for £16. Then scrapped the laptop a month later. Oh Well.Also USB PCI cards exist. Have a Google.
Any reason for the expletive?andy63walsh: what make / model laptop is it? One thing to check is that there's no fluff or other contaminents in your USB ports.
Hi.I deleted and let the laptop put the usb drivers back. It's still the same, odd as it never done this The craptop, I mean laptop is a HP Pavilion ZD7143eaDef no fluff in the usb.
Following on from rawprawn's advice this may be worth trying :Open the command prompt and enter this line:set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1followed by this line:start devmgmt.mscthis should now open the normal device manager window but when you opt to "show hidden devices" under the view menu it will also show the ghost entries of all previously connected devices.Delete everything within the USB controllers and allow Windows to reinstall.It will probably do no harm to delete any other ghost entries which are shown under any of the other device headings.
RobinfloxleyI've had that come up and I have USB.2
Just for information (if you didn't know already!), your laptop does support USB 2.0.click here for its tech & service manual - direct download link from HP.cocteau48's suggestion looks like it should resolve your issue.
cocteau48This does not work on 'Run' for some reason. I'm on windows XP.
there is nothing on the HP site to help !
