Question about HP Compaq dx2200 PC Desktop
I have a HP Compaq dx2200 microtower. When I turn on a usb device, any device, I get the message USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a hi speed usb 2.0 port. All of my ports are 2.0 and have worked just fine in the past. All drivers are up to date. the usb external hard drive where I install my backups is now running slower than a snake. Normally a backup takes no more than 4 hours with verification. It now takes over 10 hours. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I went into the setup to check the pnp/pci configuration and it is set to enable automatic reconfiguration. Thank you.
Ed it sounds like a RAM problem. How much ram do you have. These days you need at least 1g. How big is your hard drive. You need to have at least 10g constantly free at all times. This might mean a larger one. You may be running 2.0 devices but is your system truly 2.0 or higher. Go to start, run, try this:
"... on most machines the presence of 'Enhanced', even only once, means that all USB ports are USB 2.0 ports ..." Note the highlighted line: "Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller". While the exact text may vary, the key is the word "Enhanced".
If it's "Enhanced", it's USB 2.0. If it's not, then it's USB 1.x.
Now, wasn't that obvious?
Important: on most machines the presence of "Enhanced", even only once (which it typically is), means that all USB ports are USB 2.0 ports. Typically a machine will have only one type of port and this tells you which kind they all are.
The one exception to this scenario is a machine with USB 1.1 ports that has a USB 2.0 expansion card added. In this case I know of no way to tell which is which, other than simply knowing you added a USB 2.0 card to a machine with built-in 1.1 ports. Obviously in a case like this, the built-in ports are 1.1, and the added expansion card ports are 2.0.
Hope this helps.
