I am looking for the easiest way that I can upgrade a usb port, I take that back just a way to upgrade my ports. I have 1.0 USB ports as far as I know if you can figure it out I am using an HP Omnibook XE3 with an Intel 8371 AB/EB PIIX 4. Please let me know of any way that I can upgrade this to a 2.0 as I am desperate to do so. Is it possible to get new USB ports and install them on my computer, the more help the better. Thanks a [email protected]!

I might be wrong in this but I dont think you can replace usb ports in laptops and if you could it would be very pricey.
you cannot upgrade via software so you are goin to have to stick with usb 1 or buy a new machine.
