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?

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

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