Main Chipset Driver for USB2

June 16, 2010 at 10:17:39
Specs: Windows Vista, Intel Core 2 Duo 1.67Ghz
Hi, my USB ports are only capable of running on USB 1.1 but not on 2.0. In device manager, under the USB controllers I can see the USB2 Enhanced Host Controllers installed. But whenever I connect a USB devise I always get a message saying "This device can perform faster
I'm trying to find a driver to load the USB 2.0. I've been told I need to download the main chipset drivers for my notebook which is a HP Pavilion dv2500. I'm not exactly sure how to do this. I managed to go on the HP webpage and find a list of drivers, but I want to make sure I'm installing the correct one:

I don't understand the problem. Simply click on the link that says "chipset" and click "download" next to "chipset installation utility". Download the file to your desktop and run the file to install the chipset drivers.

If you can't get the laptop to see the chipset drivers in Vista, consider upgrading to Windows XP, or Windows 7.

Are you connecting your devices to a USB port that is part of the motherboard or something else, like a USB hub or card reader?

I'm connecting it to a USB port which is part of the motherboard.

Well, there are two chipset drivers in the list, I'm guessing I need to install the :

If you have enhanced USB showing in Device Manager then there are USB 2.0 ports currently installed. That is assuming they are working properly when you look at the properties of the device.

Your board evidently has a mix of both USB types. Try a different port. Normally TWO USB ports are serviced by each USB controller. They will normally be located side by side.

Card readers can downgrade the speed of a USB 2.0 controller to 1.1 speeds. If you are using the port that is shared with a card reader that could explain the message.

Also, if using a high current draw non-external powered device I think that could cause the same issue.

How many USB ports do you have all together? Do you have a card reader?
