I recently reformatted my computer and now whenever i plug in a USB device it comes up with the ballon saying that it can perform faster if its plugged into a usb 2.0 etc... I click on it and it says i have no USB 2.0 Ports. How can i install the drivers or whatever i need for the usb 2.0. it was working perfectly fine before i reformatted. i looked around on the internet and it says it comes in a windows update. if it does can someone please tell me which one and possibly give me a download link because at the moment i am not able to download them all. In device manager my current driver is a Intel 80801G (ICH7 Family) USB Universal Host Controller 27C8. There is no 'Enhanced Host Controller' which i have read is what gives you the USB 2.0.

I finally found the problem
in Bios there was no option for USB 2.0,
all i had to do was reset optimised defaults in bios and the option was back again
thanks for you help.
