Which chip controlls usb ports?


USB controller

Although many computers have an integrated USB controller on the motherboard, many computers may also have an expansion USB controller card. If your USB connectors are not connected directly to the motherboard it is likely your computer is using an expansion card.

Motherboard USB controller

If your USB controller is integrated on the motherboard it is generally best to consult the motherboard documentation or visit the motherboard manufacturer's web page for online documentation regarding your USB controller.

Expansion card USB controller

If your USB controller is an expansion card it would be best to refer to the manufacturer's documentation or visit the manufacturer's web page for additional information about your USB controller.

Note: If your USB controller is currently installed and working and you are running Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, or Windows XP, you can determine the USB controller currently installed by opening the Universal Serial Bus controllers category in Device Manager. For example, "SiS 7001 PCI to USB Open Host Controller" indicates a computer is using the SiS chipset.

Device driver problem in Windows XP using a USB 2.0 device on a laptop with USB 1.1 controllers

Disable the USB 1.1 on-board option from the motherboard and install a 2 or 4 port USB 2.0 PCI/ISA card.

These cards are quite cheap these days and will do the trick rather than replacing the more expensive back up external hard drive ESATA/USB 2.0 hard drive.
