DV9000 what type of USB ports do I have?

I have a HP Pavilion entertainment Notebook.

 

DXDIAG tells me it is called :  HP Pavilion DV9000 (RP617EA#ABU)

 

When I plugin my external hard drive it asks me if i would prefer to connect to a usb 2 port.  Can't seem to tell is any of my ports are usb1 or usb2, how do I tell?

 

Thanks

The Ports would be USB 2.0, USB 1 is old technology .....

Re: DV9000 what type of USB ports do I have?

Thanks for the link, basically I go to the device manager and look at the usb controllers, if and say enhanced then they are usb2 if not then usb1, I show one of 5 ports saying enhanced, the other four are not.

 

I had a virus a few months back which ended up in getting a local tech guy to re-install the operating system, he wiped my old machine and reinstalled xp. but not the original version of  xp that came with the pc. 

 

any suggestions

 

I've tried searching for updates in the device manager for drivers and there are none.

 

thanks.

Re: DV9000 what type of USB ports do I have?

Yeah find all the usb devices in device manager and delete every one that can be deleted. Reboot and let the OS reinstall the driver. The usb 2.0 driver is part of Windows XP if you have Service Pack 1a or higher. If you do not, install a newer Service Pack. Sometimes XP needs a kick in the seat to install usb 2 drivers properly.
