USB 2.0 Help!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
OK, so i have an MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum motherboard for my AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Socket 939, and since the day i got it, the USB 2.0 capability hasnt been enabled.

How do I enable my mobo to use USB 2.0???

I just got a new 60GB iPod, traded in my Generation 1 5GB iPod...but it can't update at its full potential because my computer is only running USB 1.0...

On the BIOS there should be an option to select USB functionality. Which ports are you using, the front ports on your case or the the ones on the back (the ones that stick right out of your MOBO)? I ask because some cases come with 1.1 USB ports (that happen to me once)

The ports are generally the same for 1.1 and 2.0. Unless they are really junky and cant handle the data rate. I have plenty of 1.1 cables around that work fine with 2.0. Just make sure its on in BIOS and open device manager and make sure you have an extra "enhanced" controller under USB.

kk
i got it fixed from another forum
i installed the latest nVidia nForce drivers, and then Right Clicked "My Computer" and went to manage. From there I went to "Device Manager" and selected the USB options that werent installed (Had the Yellow ?). I doudle clicked the option, and then told it to "Re-Install Drivers" and it did it automatically and now my USB ports run faster than ever.

good deal. I had a similar problem w/ my Asus board. to fix it all you have to do is put the mobo cd in the drive go to divice manager and tell it to auto update the drivers.
