    I have a Comaq 5420. It comes with usb 1.1 ports. 2 in the front and 2 in back.. I installed a USB 2.0 card, not only does it not install correctly by default (It installs automatically with unknown drivers). But when I manually set the drivers to what they are supposed to be from the install disk, upon reboot (because it tells me I have to reboot) my computer just KEEPS REBOOTING. Untill I press f8 to go use last workin configuration. But then the ports are disabled again.

    I can screen capture anything needed, and at this point Im willing to try anything. But this is a hassle. I have a 120GB HDD connected via USB 1.1 and the speed is downright HORRIBLE.

    Any help you all could provide would be GREAT.

    First off, disable the USB 1.1 card in the BIOS, reboot the machine, and do this:

    Unplug ALL USB devices.
    Open Device Manager.
    View, Show Hidden Devices.
    Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.

    Shutdown, and install the USB 2.0 card. Boot and see if it's recognized.
