It sounds to me like your USB mouse is not USB2 compatible. Use it while it is connected to the USB3 port. Did it at one time work in the USB2 port?

Is the dell inspiron 580 a usb 2.0 or 3.0

I don't think your computer has USB3, because USB3 came after 2009. But that should not stop you from buying an USB3 hard drive. My computer did not have USB3, and I used USB3 drives, long before a bought a USB3 extension card. You always van connect an USB3 drive to an USB2 computer connector. Ans an USB2 drive to an USB3 computer connector. The slowest part in the chain, will dictate the maximum speed. But even with the USB3 drive, now on your computer, the computer can't use the full speed, but if you buy a new computer, the same drive can be used on a much higher speed.
I did put in a USB3 extension card, but it did not help much. My internal computer buss is slowing things down, so even my USB3 drives, most of the time only reach 35 Mbyte/ second. A speed USB2 could reach too. But connecting my drives to newer computers makes them almost 3 times as fast. And with the file sizes I'm sometimes have to put over, that really makes a difference.

How to convert USB3 to USB2

The software drivers are different n Windows 8.1, you can either get an update for it, or just use it on the XP. USB2 is irrelevant.

How can I have a hi-speed USB host controller for USB Mass Storage Device that my compaq E500 needs for maximum performance ?

Your computer supports USB1, it is highly unlikely there is a BIOS upgrade for high speed USB2 and USB3 support.
The only alternative is to install an USB 3 PCI card into your computer's PCI expansion slot.
Check out these cards from this WEB site.

Msi gx660r usb

Sorry, I'm not entirely sure by what you mean by "falls over", but I guess devices fail when plugged into it.

Does it fail on just the USB3 ports, or both USB2 and 3?

what sort of devices are you using - low power devices such as mice, or higher power devices like 2.5" USB hard disk enclosures?

To be honest, I'm not familiar with USB3.0... but I assume you will need a driver to run them... perhaps downloading and installing the driver from msi may fix the issue, if its a driver corruption issue?

If it fails with any device in both USB2 and USB3 ports, the cheapest and easiest workaround may be to buy a Expresscard USB card.

Hope this info helps.

My pen 4gb pendrive is working very slow it works 800kbps

When you plug in your USB pendrive into your computer and you get a message "This device can perform faster if connected to a high speed USB2 port".
This means your computer supports USB1 which is much slower than USB2 and the latest USB3.
There may be a BIOS upgrade to configure your computer to support USB2.

Usb1 upgrade to USB2

You mean USB 1.0 to 2.0, yes you can. As long as you have a PCI vacant slot inside your pc.
You just need to purchase a usb 2.0 PCI card.
You will have new USB slots. You will need to use those new slots to benefit from 2.0( it will do nothing to the older 1.0 slots) .

USB Keyboard will not access BIOS.

Hi there.
Get the PS/2 keyboard and go back into the bios, make sure all the USB controllers are set to "enabled", save the changes and exit the bios, the computer will restart and your USB keyboard should now work and you will be able to access the bios using the USB keyboard.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
