I am not sure of how you can do this without doing further research. Perhaps there is a jumper type adapter (USB hub) that will function on the male end as a USB 1.0 and the female end as a USB 2.0.
Right off hand, I know that you can purchase a USB 2.0 PCI card and install it on the back of the computer. This may not be as convenient, but it will enable you to run USB 2.0 devices.

Can I do a memory upgrade on Sony VGC -LS 37E?


the specs for your computer, it states that it is equipped with 2gb of memory 2x1gb and max at 2gb, so I doubt that any higher memory upgrade installed would work, or else it would cause your system to crash or even damage it.

I have a dell dimesion 2400. the usb ports will not work. What do you suggest i do o fix this problem


1. Usually this is a setting in the BIOS (Basic input/out systems) which enables the usb ports. Sometimes a firmware upgrade from the manufacturers web site will resolve this issue. WWW.dell.com ( support).
2. This could be that the usb port have been shorted out. This will require a tech to resolve at the mother board level. Most time this will require a mother board replacement.

To be quite honest you do not need all that for watching a good quality movie! Your processor is good enough! As long as you got a nice upgrade on your video card and sound! A nice Player and enough Ram you will have great video playback.... I hope this helps you decide.. Good luck to you!

UPGRADING USB 1.1 TO USB 2


I searched and found a 1/2 height PCI card with 2 USB ports, plus a internal connector for two more ports. My little NetVista will not hold a full-height PCI card. Get out your tin snips.
Works like a charm !
FYI: I disabled the BIOS USB support for the old ports, and plugged the old MB cable into the new PCI card. I now have two 2.0 ports on the front, and two 2.0 ports on the back. However, I lost the ability to boot from USB

A-hi speed usb device is plugged into a non-high spped usb hub


this usually happens when you plug a 2.0 usb device into a 1.0 device. If your appliance works then i wouldn't worry about it but if you have older technology then it may be time to upgrade

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.

Memory upgrade


I like all the information you gave. However the information you are looking for is in the manufactures web site. goto search engine and enter your computers manufactures name followed by the word "support" find the site and then look up the details for your computer. The reason I say this is because each slot can only control a certain amount of memory. The manufacture will tell you what each slot can control and also the type of memory supported by your motherboard. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT> never mix memory. Make sure of speed and capacity. If you mix diffrent speed and capacities the results could end in total failure.
