UPGRADING USB 1.1 TO USB 2

First off, I am a bit of a numpty as far as PCs are concerned. I have a Netvista 6274 - 14G with USB 1.1 and I want to upgrade / update to USB 2. I've searched on the internet and I'm confused about what part(s) I need as different sites suggest: PCI Card - Type 'F' and others about a 'Daughter Board'. Can someone please advise me what parts I do actually need to change to USB 2 and also a supplier, many thanks.

I searched and found a 1/2 height PCI card with 2 USB ports, plus a internal connector for two more ports. My little NetVista will not hold a full-height PCI card. Get out your tin snips.
Works like a charm !
FYI: I disabled the BIOS USB support for the old ports, and plugged the old MB cable into the new PCI card. I now have two 2.0 ports on the front, and two 2.0 ports on the back. However, I lost the ability to boot from USB

I had a look at the specifications of your computer and it might not meet the requirements to install windows 7

If your computer is 5 yrs or older it might not support windows 7 also you will need a minimum of 1 GB of RAM for 32 bit or 2GB of RAM for 64 bit to install windows 7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows7/products/system-requirements hope this helps

It requires at least 2 gb ram and c2 duo or higher. Be sure you have that min with your pc. next you need windows cd. insert it int drive and press F3 or any key to boot with cd. It's then very simple just do as pc says. In format using type choose NTFS next just proceed as directed and you are done.

I bought a new laptop from Dell. My old on is a desktop from Dell. I have a Belkin transfer cable. It is asking for a transfer key number. what is that????????


Please note that your cable will support below givne O/S check at your end.

One destination PC running Windows 7 (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

One source PC running Windows® XP (32- or 64-bit) or Windows Vista® (32- or 64-bit) and available USB port

For Example two Pcs 1 is Xp and other pcs is Windows 7, then try to connect between both .

Another one more option is there for transfering the data between two systems either laptop or Desktop by a cross cable (LAN CABLE), buy a cross cable from shop and insert into RJ45 Socket (i.e lan socket) the try to transfer the datas.

Processor Upgrade For An IBM Netvista 8307-73G...


If the physical size, and numper of pins is the same as your current processor, you can most definately upgrade. Hyper threading is enabled through the bios, but as far as I know it's not neccesary.
Swapping out processors is fairly easy, and when you buy a new one, it should come with extensive instructions and pictures showing you exactly how to do it. Good luck!

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
Iqbal

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
