hello. I have a sony vaio pcg-v505bx. the hard drive had a malfunction and was replaced by best buy under warrenty. I got it back and loading everything on it with my drivers and I curretly have windows xp pro SP 2 on it. For some reason, when i add a usb 2.0 device such as my flash drive or external HD, i get a yellow ballon pop up saying that this device can perform faster with usb 2.0. do i have to enable high speed somewhere as its only functioning as usb 1. Or am I missing something? please help.

try this

To Enable USB 2.0:

1. Reboot (or power on) system.
2. Press "F2" or delete during POST (Power-on Self Test) to enter system BIOS setup program.
3. Select "ADVANCED" menu using arrow (left and right) keys.
4. Select "USB Configuration" and press <enter>.
5. Enable "High-speed USB".
6. Press "F10" to Save & Exit BIOS setup program. ( Hi-Speed USB 2.0 controllers are now enabled and your operating system should detect New Hardware during the next normal boot cycle.
7. Cancel "New Hardware Found".

I tried to go into the BIOS setup, I went to ADVANCED, but there was no "USB configuration" for me to change. I think that has something to do with the fact that when i go to device manager I see "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller" under "other devices with a yellow question mark. what does that actually mean and what should I do to fix it?
