Where can i find a high speed usb port on the hp pavilion desk top that was purchased new in 2009, thanks, bob

Hi Bob,
Usually the USB ports are either on the front of the unit or you may find some on the back of the unit. All USB ports are now HighSpeed, using the 2.0 delineation. Any port you find will do what you like for that particular unit.
Hope this answers your query.
Please rate and comment, Thank You Joe

you have no high speed ports installed on your computer. what you have is USB 1.0. you can however purchase a high speed USB pci card (usb 2.0) and install it in your computer to get faster transfer speeds.

Need high speed usb driver

Unfortunately, being that you are using USB 1.1 ports, the high speed 2.0 devices cannot be used. They look the same, but are different hardwares. Even if you hook up a USB 2.0 hub to the USB 1.1 port, you are still stuck with USB 1.1 speed.

Sorry to break the bad news. Let me know if there are any more questions regarding this issue.

Wireless adapter

Go for an external USB wireless adapter, and the speed may vary depending on barriers and the distance from the router, the max. distance is about 30 ft from the router.
Tell me if anything else you want to know abt the wireless connection?

Fan cycles to high speed

change the settings in BIOS, while the computer restarts, quickly press F2 or the DEL key on your keyborad (it depends on the computer which button is to enter BIOS), there you can change the fan speed to work at which speed, but beware with the settings, you might spoil things up, find for Advanced settings tab and you may find it there.. was that helpful?

No high speed usb port

Hi Delvin!

The 2 usb-ports on the front and the 3 back of your Dell is high speed ones, at least the manual says so, they are all USB 2.0.
If you cant get them work properly with the 2.0 usb speed, you can buy an high speed pci add-in- card and install it on your pc.

Here you can read about the "high speed usb" :

And here is the manual and avalible drivers for your Dell:

Good luck to you M8!

Location of USB Root Hub

Hi dottyo,

Generally the front USB ports on a computer are USB version 1.1, good for USB keyboard and mouse or printer.

But, almost always the USB ports on the back of the pc are USB version 2.0 which is what you are looking for. Try any ports on the back of the pc case.

Hope that helps!
