Problem with USB 2.0

Hello

 

I have two USB ports on my coputer.

I recently reinstalled Win XP on the computer and now the computer says I have four USB ports, one of which is a USB 2.0 and the others are older versions.

In reality the two USB ports that I do have should be 2.0 but they only work as 1.1

 

Any suggestions?

    I have a T40 and the 2 USB ports have acted as 1.1 ports for over a year. I suspect that a Windows upgrade replaced the original drivers. Is this a known problem? I don't have any older drivers to "roll back".

    I have the same problem. but from what I can see from the drivers for the ports is that a USB mem stick is recognised by the computer as being a disk drive and not under the USB controlers.
    so updating the drivers doesn't help

First check the "Device Manager", for any USB Driver "errors".
There are 3 USB ports for your Laptop, check all the ports.
If you are using XP on your laptop, is your service packs up to date? For USB 2.0 port to function properly you got have to update a least Service Pack 2 for Win XP.

1. Have you check your USB port? Just plug in any USB devices eg. Flash drive, external HDD... and see whether the port detect the USB devices.

2. Is the USB cable for the Printer faulty? Try a new USB cable.

Hope it helps.

My coby -mp 610-2g was hookup to my cpu and i


Hello,

Having devices connected during reinstallation of the Operating System will lead to a faulty detection on the USB ports.
Connected devices will not be recognized.

How to get the USB ports functioning again:

>0. First disconnect all apparatus connected to the USB ports.

Step 1.1 will take a long time again, I'd prefer step 1.2:
1.1 Perform a new installation of Windows XP (the long way) or
>1.2 Delete all USB hardware in the Control Panel (the short way).

>2. Install the software for your device and perform an update.
Update Windows Media Player 11 and / or Coby Media Manager.

>3. Open the software WMP11 or the Coby Media Manager.
Connect the device and make a setup for connection in the
software you use.

When you need more help for software or hardware configuration, just add a comment.

Usb is not working


Have you installed the motherboard drivers for Win XP?
You might have to go to the manufacturer's site (ASUS) and look for the XP drivers.
It might then be a good idea to go into the device manager and delete all the USB ports and let the system reinstall them.

Usb ports not working. power is on but computer doesnt detect anything plugged in. win xp


Hi..

Did you try the other port of your motherboard. Do not use the front USB socket of your computer, you need to plug i directly to your motherboard ports. If the same things happen. you need troubleshooting.

Remove and reinstall all USB controllers
To remove and reinstall all USB controllers, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then click OK.
Click the Hardware tab.
Click the Device Manager button.
Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
Restart the computer, and then reinstall the USB controllers.
Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.

Good luck!
