How do I add a HI-SPEED USB host controller to my PC?

My OS is windows xp home edition. I keep getting this message stating that the HI-SPEED USB Device Attached To Non HI-SPEED Hub.

 

The USB Composite Device is a HI-SPEED USB device and will function at reduced speed when plugged into a non HI-SPEED port.

 

There are no HI-SPEED USB host controllers installed on this computer.

 

Recommendation: You must add a HI-SPEED USB host controller to this computer to obtain maximum performance.

 

So, how do I add this HI-SPEED USB host controller to my PC? Is it hardware I must add and install physically to my PC?

 

As always any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

My product number is compaq presario 8000Z 8QSXEI, the message came from the icon tray on the bottom right side of the task bar near the clock. I clicked on the icon then it gave the message.

Hi Drake,

 

Review the USB devices attached to your PC and make sure that there is not a USB 1.x device attached to the same USB HUB (front or back).  USB 1.x devices will cause the USB HUB to down shift to 1.x speeds.

 

You do have an old PC (2002) so it's possible that your PC doesn't have a USB 2.0 HUB.  In this case, you will need to install a PCI USB adapter card.
