I have a 2 year old Acer Aspire T180 running XP (sp3) this morning I switched it on and I got a pop up message saying that I have a device ( Iomega external hard drive) running from an non hi speed usb port and that it would run more efficiently from a hi speed usb port - thing is, this external hard drive remains plugged in to the same usb slot and I've never had a message like that before, more to the point, how do I find out which of the usb ports are the hi speed ones? there are some at the back of the tower and some at the front.
Refresh USB Ports Use Drive clean up to remove USB device drive info from the registry click here or In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the heading USB, reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware. Your equipment should now be recognised.
