USB ports 1&2

How can I tell the difference between USB 1 & USB 2. I only have two ports on my computer & I have no idea whether they are 1 or 2. Does it make a difference.

Thankyou guys, I am talking about USB types but I have a Dell computer which only supplied a solution guide book so there is no motherboard manual. If I look inside at the motherboard will I be able to tell.I think that I am only plugging in USB1 devices but I am not certain, do some devices such as printers for example offer either USB 1 or USB 2 plug ins.

Hi & thankyou, I looked in the device manager. It just shows 2 usb's both listed as 82801BA/BAM & universal host controllers.I am now convinced that I only have USB type 1 on my computer. It isn't that important to me, but if I can learn more about the things I don't understand about my computer I feel that I am gradually increasing my knowledge & ability. I find computers like giant crosswords, only the difference is you can never solve them.
