Question about HP Pavilion 761n PC Desktop

1 Answer

Upgrading two USB ports on front panel

I added a Belkin USB 2.0, 5-Port PCI card to my HP761n computer. Naturally the 4 ports on the PCI card all work at the 2.0 std. But the two front USB ports still indicate the older speed of 1.1.

I assume I need to unplug these two front ports from the mboard and plug them into the 5th internal USB plug on the Belkin's PCI card. The problem is the two plugs are not compatible. The plug on the Belkins card is a standard USB plug, and the plug on the front port wires (two)are what I believe to be a 'double row of 5' header pins. I believe they refer to this as a 'Intel Standard USB header Layout'??

1) Is there a simple conversion device that would allow this two plugs to be connected??
2) Or do I need to consider getting a new terminal plug (std USB) added to the wires of the front USB ports?

    QUOTE=those pins should connected to ur mother board only...

    QUESTION: But if it were only a single USB port on the front of the computer it could be connected to that 5th "internal port" on the PCI card, right?? So why could.t it be possible to get both USB ports on the front working via that internal port on the PCI card??


    QUOTE=once check ur bios settings..
    QUESTION: Does this have any bearing on my motherboard's inherent (as deliveried) capability of supplying USB1.1 rather than 2.0 ?? That would indicate to me that I might have been able to upgrade my computer to USB2.0 without installing this Belkin card??



    Just beware you are talking to a relatively computer illeriate :)

ASUS P4SDX USB Ports not recognized as USB2 HS Ports


The message comes up when a USB 2 device is connected to a slower USB 1 or 1.1 port. It is only to advise you that the devise will operate faster on a USB 2 port. If your computer has only USB 1 or 1.1 ports, you will always see the message. You can buy and install a card with USB 2 ports and install it. It will come with the USB 2 drivers. Install the card and the drivers and then connect your USB 2 device to the new hardware and you should not see the message anymore.

Good luck, And let me know ho it works out for you.

yes if you buy a PCI firewire card they will have 1 or 2 headers on the card so you can fit your front Firewire port to it...
[Belkin cards 99% of the time have headers on the card]

Let me know...

Can not identify Belkin N1 Wireless USB Adaptor on PC


Hi, A couple of things: 1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)? 2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?; 3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0? 4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port? Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.

Belkin N1 Wireless Adaptor not connecting on PC


what the adviser meant was your pc cannot provide enough power to the usb port to power the unit, assuming you have tried other ports and it still wont work; you will need to either purchase a pci usb 2.0 card adapter or purchase a mains powered usb hub and connect to this instead.
