Upgrading to USB 2.0

  Jeff W 09:56 26 Aug 2010

A friend has asked me to install a USB 2.0 PCI card in his desktop computer which is running Windows 7 Home Premium.

Will the new card work alongside the existing USB ports or will I have to uninstall/disable USB 1.0?

If so - how do I do this?

I think it depends on motherboard should be able to run both 1 and 2

Should you should normally be able just to pop the card in and use it without having to do anything. What OS are you using ?
