    Well, not that they aren't working, they just aren't installed/functioning.

    In my new computer is a Gigabyte mobo GA-MA790XT-UD4P.

    I updated the bios, and just about everything including the chipset.

    Yet when i plug in USBs to the usb ports on either the front of back of my case, OR the media reader I have, it says

    This USB Device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port.
    For a list of available ports, click here.

    When i click on it, none of them are high speed ports, yet this motherboard is good quality from what i see.

    Anyway to fix this?

    Thanks

    Also, XP Professional SP3 doesnt recognize that i have 4GB of ram, it says I only have 3.25, is this some kind of Cap?

    First are you sure the devices are usb 2.0
    Second check the bios for the following
    USB EHCI Controller
    Enables or disables the integrated USB 2.0 controller. (Default: Enabled)
