USB 2.0 ports not configured?

I have a webcam and a wireless mouse, and both of them are HI SPEED USB devices, to be connected into 2.0 ports.

I recently reformatted my computer, reinstalling Windows XP Pro SP3, and now the 2 USB 2.0 ports I have are reading as if they are regular USB ports. Whenever I plug a 2.0 port device into them, the computer tells me they can go faster if I plug them into a 2.0 port.

I know for a fact they ARE USB 2.0 ports. next to the ports it says "Hi Speed USB" and my device manager has a "Standard Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller" under Universal Serial Bus controllers.
The thing is, when I open up the properties for the enhanced USB Host controller, it always says all the ports are empty. When I have something plugged into one of the Hi Speed ports, its placed in the "Standard OpenHDC USB Host Controller" instead.

Do I need to update a driver or something?

  1. update your drivers
  2. Could be a BIOS setting also. Go into it and make sure USB is set to V1.1+V2.0.
  3. when I tried to update the USB hubs through my device manager, it said all the drivers were already up to date. Is there another way of updating my drivers? when i googled for this problem, I found that some were suggesting that after a full reformat and reinstall of windows, USB 2.0 ports would only work after installing the drivers from the manufacturer's website. How can I tell what manufacturer made my USB 2.0 hub?

    I've gone into the BIOS, and it says the USB 2.0 controller is set to hi speed (not full speed)
  4. Install the chipset driver for your motherboard.

    it will be on the disk that came with it, or available from the manufacturer website.
  5. *** well I don't have the CD and my motherboard is pretty old.

    the 2 highlighted ones are the ones I already tried.

    I'm not sure that the USB 2.0 ports are even part of the motherboard though. The USB Hi Speed hub in the back is by itself at the bottom of the computer, just 2 side by side ports with "Hi Speed USB" written next to them.

    I'm not entirely sure, but after looking up my motherboard, it seems that ALL the USB ports in the back should be 2.0 ports. I tried all 6 though, and every time it still gives me the error.
  6. plug them in to your enhanced port (at the back) and when you right click properties on my computer go to the u.s.b ports and then look at bottom for the enhance ports then right click again update the driver with the device plugged in it should auto pick them up? dont forget to restart your system for them too work perfectly? (win xp) has always had this problem its not your device nor your board HOPE THIS HELPED??
