Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
I'd like to open up the laptop to see what my "upgrade" options are, if any. I notice that according to System/Device Manager the laptop uses PCI Express. Is there a way to upgrade a USB port or more from 2.0 to 3.0? Being able to replace a bad hard drive (once "cloned") would also be nice. I've been able to add USB 3.0 functionality on a 2002 PC via a PCI (old style) board with USB 3.0 ports (though obviously not running at full capacity, but still much faster than USB 2.0 would provide.) I would think adding USB 3.0 to a 2010 laptop via PCI Express would be possible unless ASUS just doesn't like to play nice. I'd rather not simply hear another sales pitch from/about ASUS to simply buy a new one. Besides, I like the challenge!
Every thing on a laptop is chip centered, you cannot upgrade hardware.

Two solutions would be to either restore your pc to before the problem started,using system restore on accesories menu, or use the recovery cd or the recovery folder Acer laptops usually have on the 'D' drive and re-install usb controllers and drivers.

SOURCE: HP laptop - usb ports
USB ports require drivers to Run, if you do not have a driver for a usb port, windows will try to install them automatically, has this happened with your machine?
if this has not happened, then it could be a problem with the BGA controller chip(this happens rarely)
anyway to check if there are any issues with the hardware go to HP.com and run a live diagnostics from the site

Your drive is being recognized. However, your computer only has USB 1.1 so you are being notified that USB 2.0 is faster. This message is FYI and will not prevent you from accessing the drive.
After you see that message you should see your external drive in "My Computer" If you don't see the drive you probably need to assign an available drive letter to drive.
Open Windows Help and Support.
Search for "drive letters" and find "assigning drive letters"
This will walk you through the process.
If this helps, please vote for my solution.
