USB 2.0 works as USB 1.1

Support CD for m/b installs but doesn't mention USB. Driver from ECS website for USB unpacks correctly and the setup runs but terminates within a second without displaying any messages.
When devices are plugged into any of the USB ports windows displays a message that the device would work better in a USB 2.0 port.
Tried 2 identical motherboards with Win XP pro and Win 2000 pro.
There are 4 USB connectors on back ad a header for the front ports, all act in the same way. ECS PT890T-A v1.0 motherboards.

It says no audio device how can I fix it ?

Possible that the audio driver of the motherboard was corrupt and so will need to be reinstalled. If you have the CD install it from the CD and run it on the PC. If not download from the HP official site and run the driver to be installed. If there is no result as the audio does not work there can be errors in the OS or a possible hardware issue.

I'm trying to transfer video from my Swann DVR4-1000 to my laptop using a USB transfer cable. When I plug the cable in, the laptop doesn't seem to 'find' the DVR. What am I missing? Thanks...

Did the system come with a setup CD? If so, unplug the DVR from your system, insert and run the setup CD then plug in the DVR and it should recognized.

My printer won't print due to the fact that the troubleshoot says I'm not connected to a computer....but I am. How do I download a new driver to make it work. thanx

Hello Sir, Hi, that is common error with printers today, but this error can be fixed, here are some of the thing you need to do, they may help.
for usb interface. 1. If you are using a USB interface, you need to install first the driver software, along the setup, you will be prompted to power on the printer and plug in the USB cable to your computer and the printer. make your connection here. If the connection fails, do this several times. 2. If the 1. fails try using another USB port.
for centronics parallel printer cable. 1. Make the connection of the printer to the computer before installing the driver software. 2. Power on the printer. 3. Power on the computer and install the driver CD.
If you do not have the driver cd and you did not mention what printer you have. do a Google search, type the printer make and model and search for the driver. download the driver, usually from the manufacturer's website.

Can't install new home printer (brother HL-2170W); have limited computer skills. Computer is HP Pavilion w. Win XP Home Edition. Old broken printer is HP LaserJet 1150, which I installed easily w. HP CD...

I wouldn't worry about turning the printer on and connecting it, that's just to avoid picking up generic drivers before you install the ones from the disk.

It's possible your installation CD is faulty. Follow these steps:

1) Download the latest drivers from the address below and install them.

2) Connect your printer with pc off and turn both the pc and printer on. Windows should automatically install the drivers. If not then open device manager and install from there.

I hope this helps,

Sound card drivers

SOLUTION #1: If you have a driver CD that came with your eMachine, look for the audio folder on the CD. If there is a "setup" program inside this folder, then run it. SOLUTION #2: Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, right click on sound device, choose Update driver, install from list, don't search, have disk, browse to the audio driver location on the driver CD, then okay it. SOLUTION #3: Download the file from the following URL, unzip it, then run the SETUP program inside the folder.
