When i First got my computer it had only the old 1.1 USB ports so I upgraded by adding a PCI USB card which gave me 3 usable 2.0 USB ports. I have a spare PCI slot. Is there any reason why I should not add a further PCI USB card?
My operating system is WINXP professional. The processor is a Pentium 4: 2.8 MHz with 1 gig of memory.
My reason for the new addition is that I recently added an external Hard Drive which I have connected to to the internal fourth USB socket. It works ok if I switch it on at boot up but if I try to switch it on when the machine is already running it causes problems like Windows discovering devices that have been on the system for years and even crashing the system.
If I had a new set of USB sockets the HD could have the card all to itself! What are your opinions please?
