Hi truckereric, The short answer no.
USB 2.0 is acheaved by two things.
1. You need to enter your system boards Bios. Find the USB settings. If USB 2.0 is listed here than your board will support it.

2. USB 2.0 is installed through windows updates.

3. If your board can't handle USB 2.0 maybe there is a Bios update. No, I checked your bios & there is no bios update to bring you up to USB 2.0.

AOpen's driver / software & bios support found at the link posted here. http://download.aopen.com.tw/Default.aspx
You'll need to fill in the three dropdown menues.
Motherboard
MX4BS
& Order by: LastUpdated
There are five pages of updates. If you change the Category dropdown menue to Bios. AOpen will show you the bios updates.
At least you have AOpends update link.
You can always add a PCI card that supports USB 2.0

I need to upgrade my usb port 1.1 to 2.0


The easiest way for you to do this is to get a USB 2.0 pci card and install it into the computer. Here is one that is available for $10

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124008&cm_re=usb_2.0_pci_card-_-15-124-008-_-Product

These are fairly easy to install. It does require you to open the computer case. Remember to unplug the computer from the electricity before starting and properly ground yourself before touching any components in the case(static electricity can damage them). You should use a grounding strap that hooks to your wrist and attatches to the case or touch the case each time before touching any components. Once the case is open you will need to locate an empty PCI slot. Then use a screwdriver to remove the metal "Blank" that is covering the opening at the back of the computer. Then you can insert the new card with the USB ports facing the back of the computer and use firm but gentle pressure to insert the card into the port. Once the card is fully seated secure it with the screw you removed from the blank. Then plug the computer back in and run any installation software that came with the card if required and that is it.

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) .

G'Day! I have a Transcend 2 GB USB stick. Whenever I connect it to my computer or any other computer, I get this error message ''THIS USB DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF YOU CONNNECT IT TO HIGH SPEED USB 2.0...


Yes. The problem is you don't have usb 2.0 ports on your motherboard. Its the second generation usb port. So if you want to upgrade you can buy additional hardware to upgrade this. But your motherboard has to be compatible with that additional peripheral too. As an example buses of your motherboard. So you have to check that also when you purchase. This is not a problem. The only thing is it will reduce the efficiency of your pen drive (Access time etc.). Other usb sticks you have may be usb 1.1 devices.

Hi-speed USB host


this means that you do not have a USB 2 port or do not have the USB2 drivers installed correctly if it does,

check your chipset drivers and spec of laptop with manufacturers.

if you do not have usb2 you can get a USB 2 PCMCIA card to supply this functionallity.

it is possible this is a USB low power issue as this is a laptop, but check your drivers and spec first.

Usb ports


Go into your Device Manager (you didn`t say which OS).
Under USB you should have something like Enhanced Host controller.
That is USB2.
If you haven`t got it, your on USB1.
Normally if you only have USB1, and you plug a USB2 capable
device in, you will be told `this device could perform faster`.

Dell precision not recognising usb 2.0


sounds not,  some of the older systems only have 1.1, Usb 2 is not all that old (about 2-3 years).
you can upgrade to USB2 bu adding a USB2 PCI card to your system, this would give you some ports on the back and it may be possible to link the ports on the front to the new PCI card to upgrade those as well (depending on how they are connected to the mobo)
you can get USB2 cards with a Pin header which would allow for a pin block connection.
