    Apparently I'm only running my USB 1 ports because I keep getting these "This USB device can perform faster, click here to find a high speed USB 2.0 port" messages.

    After an extensive search I've come across this, http://www.techsupportforum.com/har...p4s533-x-how-upgrade-usb-1-0-ports-2-0-a.html
    Apparently this link solved someones problem, it says I need to go into BIOS and enable S1, or enabling the USB 2 somehow. But I can't seem to locate where to enable S1 or any other High Speed USB. How should I go about locating this? Your guidance would mean so very much. Thank you.

    John - I'm not familiar with your motherboard or BIOS, however my first suggestion would be to head over to the ASUS website (http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx) and download updated drivers. There's an update under the Utilities category called "Microsoft KB817900 USB fail to enter S3 patch file for Windows XP." Try that.

    I would also make sure that your BIOS is the most recent version.

    Let us know if that corrected the issue.
