    Hi all,

    Got a problem in that all usb2 ports now seem to be usb1.

    I'mn running windoze xp home. Have tried uninstalling the usb port and restart to install, but it still keeps it as usb1.

    Have tried searching for motherboard drivers on acer's website (as the pc is an acer) but the intel chipset drivers havent worked.

    Anyone have any ideas on what else I can do to get usb2 to work again?

    Cant see anything in the bios that related to usb, only to enable/disable, and thats disabled (as in i cant alter that setting).

    Tried updating the driver too via the device manager but to no avail.

    Try uninstall the driver, reboot and windows should say find new hardware, let it install it automatically, if it does, after do a reboot.

    No idea to be honest, how do i find out? Looking for the spec online for this model doesnt give any clues. Its an acer aspire m3630.
