Hey guys i cant get my computer to use usb 2.0. it always gives me a balloon saying this device can perform faster if i connect them to a high speed 2.0 port. All off these ports on my computer should be 2.0, but for some reason its not. How can i or where can i download the current drivers for usb 2.0 here is some info on my computer:

okay here is some more info on my computer:

m running xp w/ SP2. i also checked my bios, it doesn't give me an option for USB 2.0 or high speed. Maybe i need to download some updated usb drivers?

Third-party drivers are only usually required for an add-on USB2 card (such as those made by Belkin). Otherwise Windows XP uses it's own drivers (in fact XP can use it's own drivers for most add-on cards also. The supplied third-party ones are usually optional and are just "tweaked" to boost the transfer-speed a little bit higher.

I was going to say you may need to install SP2 but you already have that.

1. What about motherboard chipset drivers? Update them maybe?
2. Uninstall all USB controllers and root-hubs in Device Manager then reboot to force re-detection.
3. last resort maybe -- fit a USB2 PCI card with it's own driver (recommend Belkin).
