Reinstalled XP and the USB 2.0 hubs are working as USB1.1. When USB 2.0 pen drives are connected, a message comes up that these will work faster when connected to a USB 2.0 port.It already is. Help please.
If other ideas haven't worked, maybe have a look in your bios, maybe under Advanced, Peripherals to make sure enhanced or fast usb is selected. I used to have to do this every time I restored an old pc of mine, it went back to USB1 and had to reset it in the bios for fast usb.
Have you got your motherboard manual that should tell you where to look in the bios in case the settings have changed after a reinstall.
Thanks guys, problem solved. Madboy, I updated the drivers in device manager and it worked. It was actually under other devices and not under USB. I have a 4 port USB PCI card, and this was under other devices. Somehow, windows was not recognizing the computers built in USB ports and updating them automatically and neither the ones in other devices. When I updated the open host controller in other devices the computers in built USB 2.0 also got updated to enhanced. Les28, befor I tick resolved, I wasn't aware about the need to install motherboard VIA chipset drivers, is this important? Computer seems to be working okay.
Glad to hear you've got the USB sorted. A restore from a manufacturers recovery disk or partition will quite often have all the drivers included, it's just a fresh install from an operating system cd where drivers may be needed to be downloaded later.
