3.0g p4, msi neo 875p mobo, windows xp pro. ive just installed windows with sp2, it boots fine and runs fine but if i plug any device into a usb port it takes a long time to boot but they work fine when it does. if i unplug them it boots quick. the more devices ive got pluged in the longer it takes to boot, about 4 mins. ive got all the latest drivers and bios. any ideas? please help.
Unless the USB device is self powered, it draws current from the PC's Power supply -from the word GO. Therfore the power supply is not delivering its full out put to the machine. So unplug all until the machine is up any ready for business -then have a plug up - I guess however by the time the machine has found each new piece and is ready to go - you will still be 5 minutes down the line.
i didnt get the driver with the motherboard, it just gave me a link to microsoft website to get it but doesnt work. ive tried unplugging stuff and no luck. ive only recently installed this windows, my last windows worked fine with all the same spec and same things plugged in and that didnt take 5 mins to boot. could it have anything to do with windows being an oem version??
Hi, I may be wrong but, I think that usb2 on the mobo probably depends on whether the mobo is old or oldish, probably usb2 is only a feature of newer mobos. I would suggest fitting a 4 port pci usb2 card, then this will give you usb2 capabilities. You can see if you have usb2 by going into Devices and looking for the word Enhanced within the usb section - if Enhanced is there then you do have usb2. lol
yes ive got it. 'usb2 enhanced host controller'. i cant understand how it used to work fine, i just reinstalled windows with sp2 and now it dont. i seem to think its a usb driver problem, but i cant get hold of usb2 driver.
