Do I Have High Speed usb 2.0 ports?

I need high speed usb ports I'm sure I have at least one I think on this dell dimension 3000 according to this pic but I have plugged things into these usb ports on the front before and a pop up came up and it said something like "plug into a high speed usb port" so I'm guessing they are not high speed on the front?

  1. They are all USB 2.0 front and back, but I remembered an issue with XP and usb 2.0 sometimes. SP1 has no usb 2.0 support, SP2 has usb 2.0 support, but SP3 broke usb 2.0 support in some cases. Look half way down this article and theres a way to possibly fix it by uninstalling the drivers, restarting and then letting it reinstall the drivers.

    I actually caught the message there it is.
  3. That model has two front panel and four back panel USB 2.0 compliant connectors.

    USB High Speed running at Full Speed could be a hardware or software problem.
  4. I got another pic after clicking the pop up before it went away hold on.


  5. so only one port is high speed?

    Yes, your hardware supports usb 2.0, but the software isn't working. Try the fix I linked for you.

    alright I'll try also here is this other pic I clicked the pop up before it went away this time



    It says whats shown in bold are the available high speed ports but whats shown in bold says 8 ports.. so what is it.. I don't even have 8 ports only 5 so i should uninstall then restart?
  8. also should I only uninstall the controller ones only?
  9. never mind I read it again and that's what it said so I'll try.
  10. "So open the Computer Management console (My Computer - right click - Manage), select the device manager and start uninstalling all USB host controllers. Pretty simple - they're gone in a few minutes. Restart and Windows XP Pro detects the USB hardware right away."

    That would be the 4 you linked in the first pic.
  11. I uninstalled them then restarted and thre were alot of pop ups in the lower right corner saying found new hardware etc and root hub pop ups and stuff like that went back to device manager and it looks the exact same at least.
  12. Now plug in something that was giving the msg before. Also what SP of XP are you using?
  13. I'm trying to replicate that high speed pop up know what if this doesn't work? I'm using win xp home edition service pack 3.
  14. I got the same message again by plugging in this usb drive.
  15. Check to see if the problem still exists before you worry about "what if". SP3 is what is causing the problem.
  16. yeah i got the message again. im going to try every port.
  17. every single port I plug it into I get that same pop up..
  18. What can I do know try and manually run windows update just because I acyually forgot how to do that. Also can I get a PCI high speed usb 2.0 card? Or would that still not work.

    Is it on that page or do I click the dell 3000 link on that page and go from there?

    I went to that link clicked on dell dimension 3000 and put in my service tag and clicked on chipset as a category and there were no updates like the one on that page can I just buy a PCI USB high speed card and would that work if nothing else?
  21. Here, it's right under chipset, then download.

    Maybe. Everything I've read says that it's a software issue with XP sp3, not a hardware problem.

    Thats everything to download when I put in my service tag. I do have an old version of BIOS I'm still afraid to download that lol but I don't think I need it I was going to do that before I got a new graphics card but didn't. Is it possible to just buy this http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005JE2U82/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1ENECL4QMH21H&coliid=I24KMMRLR086O and then be able to get high speed 2.0?
