OK, I downloaded the latest Intel Chip configuration utility, then rebooted and enabled USB 2.0 support in the Bios. This seemed to fix the problem as the Enhanced USB controller now shows up in my hardware.

I dont have 2.0 usb how can i update my present usb controller


Dear Friend,
You can identify whether your PC has Hi-Speed USB or not relatively
easy. Open Device Manager and expand the Universal Serial Bus section. There should be an "Enhanced" USB host controller present.
d16424f.jpg
There are currently 7 manufacturers of the Hi-Speed USB host silicon themselves:ALi (Acer Labs), Intel, NEC, Sis, VIA, NVIDIA (shows as "Standard" controller),Philips.
Note:Older computers may have only the slower USB 1.1 interface. Adding USB 2.0 isn't difficult, but it does require a hardware addition.

There is no need to Update your USB in Latest PC.
You have to do one thing is that ensure you are perfectly Installed your Drivers(Included in CD which you Owned when Purchasing PC).



I hope You made it clear ...Thanks for Contacting FixYa...

USB ports not working


Method 1: Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Use Device Manager to scan for hardware changes. After your computer scans for hardware changes, it might recognize the USB device that is connected to the USB port so that you can use the device.

To scan for hardware changes, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
  2. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
  3. In Device Manager, click your computer so that it is highlighted.
  4. Click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.
  5. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.
If scanning for hardware changes fixed the problem, you are finished. If this method did not fix the problem, go to Method 2.
Method 2: Restart the computer loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If scanning for new hardware did not fix the problem, try restarting the computer. After the computer has restarted, check the USB device to see whether it is working.

If restarting the computer fixed the problem, you are finished. If this method did not fix the problem, go to Method 3.
Method 3: Disable and re-enable the USB controller loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Use Device Manager to disable and re-enable all the USB controllers. This lets the controllers recover the USB port from its unresponsive condition. The USB controllers represent the USB ports in Device Manager.

To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.

    Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
  2. Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
  3. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.

    Note You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.
  4. Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click Uninstall to remove it.
  5. Repeat step 4 for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers.
  6. Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.
  7. Check the USB device to see whether it is working.

I have a HP Compaq dx2200 microtower. When I turn


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:
  • Right-click My Computer
  • Click on Properties
  • Click on the Hardware tab
  • Click on the Device Manager button
  • Scroll down as needed until you see Universal Serial Bus Controllers
  • Expand that by clicking on the boxed plus sign in front of Universal Serial Bus Controllers
At this point you should see something like this:
usb2.png "... 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.

The mouse isnt working and actually have discovered that both the usb inputs at the back are inactive.Don't know how it happened or how I can fix


I just wanna ask, have you tried the other ports of your desktop or laptop? If you did and its still not working, an issue of installation of drivers for your MOBO. Its seems to me, your USB Controller doesn't able to recognize your Type A USB port because the driver wasn't installed on your motherboard that needed by the O.S.

To check if the driver is installed, using your keyboard, press WinKey+Pause/break and the System Properties appear. Then click the Hardware Tab and click the Device Manager Button. Under the Device Manager, if you see any mark of question marks (colored yellow), this only means you still need to install some drivers needed by your MOBO.

One thing else, just to be sure, SP2 ( Service Pack ) also resolves major issues when it comes to USB problems. So you should be installing this on your system also.

USB 2 PCI card installation on IBM NetVista with MS Vista


Lucy,

USB 2.0 cards require 2 IRQs.
  • 1 IRQ supports USB 1.1
  • and the other the Enhanced (USB 2.0) controller.
Installing the USB 2.0 card in a slot that does NOT share an IRQ or shares an IRQ with onboard USB produces the best result. Consult your motherboard manual or online guide to determine which PCI slot is best for you.

You should also try disabling the on board USB support from BIOS setup.

Thanks
