    Hi,

    I've recently reinstalled XP on my PC using the recovery CD that came with it but I've noticed that the USB Host Controllers seem to indicate I only have USB1 and not USB2 like I had pre-reinstall. I've tried my hardest to locate them to no avail but stumbled across this which is for my particular PC

    http://forum.fujitsu-siemens.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=19625&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

    But am having a dumb moment and don't know how to revert to MS drivers. It's XP Home with SP3 installed.

    Any help greatlly appreciated.

    Hello,

    Try this:
    In Device Manager (Start => Run and type in devmgmt.msc)
    Locate the Controller(s) and double-click.
    Check which drivers are being used (Microsoft or Intel).
    Then, as required, either Rollback Drivers or Update Drivers.

    Thanks for the response Claymore.

    Unfortunately neither of these worked. I even tried uninstalling and rebooting but they automatically re-installed the Intel ones :-(

    after the reinstall did you install the motherboard chipset, also check in the BIOS that usb2 is enabled.

    Cheers for the reply muppy but that doesn't appear to ghave worked either and I've checked the BIOS. Maybe i should just resolve myself to USB1 and pretend I'm being retro

    Check in your Device Manager for a yellow exclamation mark next to something like enhanced controller. It won't be in the USB controller group but rather above that somewhere if its there. If it is there go through the standard install, let it contact internet update and after what might be a lengthy pause, it will install the drivers needed for USB2.0 and move that enhanced controller listing down into the USB controller group.
