Re: USB 2.0 not working

I think you need to unistall and reinstall the device or if that is USB only the driver. Check the CD included in your motherboard and try to reinstall the driver. I know there is a USB driver there.

The most probable error would be corruption of driver for long period of use and even using other software that may have corrupt some of the system software. Of course, that includes viruses.

Usb ports not working

All the USB ports were working before he installed SP3 and rebooted. After that only the mouse/keyboard ports worked. Same thing happened to me. No other changes were made, so something added/change by SP3 is the culprit.

Questions is...what did SP3 do to break USB and how to fix it?

Usb 2.0

this is a common error with operating systems and devices.
If you go into my Computer/system/device manager. And remove the installed USB devices. shutdown the computer, and reboot it. then try putting your USB device in.
What general happens, is that if you have had an older device in the USB port at any time, the port configures itself to this setting. options are to try another port on the computer ( some older ports only support usb1.1 )
ensure you have up to date drivers on the connecting device and on the connecting computer.
Hope this helps Mike @ Compurepair.
