    Any one know how to get my ports back to 2.0 speed?

    Basically, I messed it up when I lost my restore disk that came with my Gateway computer. I needed to reformat because I got a virus so I used my friends Medion restore disk me being an idiot not thinking it would matter that much. So after that I noticed my mouse was acting wierd in-game and I used ‘Everest’ to check my ports and I found they were running at 1.1 speed instead of 2.0 speed. So now I buckle and buy my system restore disk from Gateway for 20 dollars for my computer so I can do a complete restore and format my drive thinking it would fix it. But to my dismay my ports are still running at 1.1 speed. Did i mess my BIOS up with my friends config or what (I have already tried going into my BIOS and hit F9 to reload defaults)? Any idea help is greatly appreciated.
    I have a Gateway 700GR, all motherboard drivers are up to date, and I use SP2 and I have tried unistalling the ports and reloading them to see if they would come back with 2.0
    Thanks
    Steve

      Hitting F9 did not work, so look for the specific BIOS menu controlling the USB ports. Exact instructions are in your manual.

        i gotta look it up online i don’t have it offhand tho but for some reason my sisters ipod runs at 2.0 speed in any ports but when i plug my keyboard/mouse in the same ports it will not go over 1.1 and says its at full in everest. IDK what it means but everytime I put in the IPOD the everest list it under enhanced ports but keyboard.mouse always go under the intel ones i updated all the way.

          Ah, that’s the right speed for keyboard & mouse. No port problem.

          Keyboard & mouse just don’t need to send data faster than the speed of USB 1.1, so they don’t bother to make them that fast. Unless you’re typing a million words per second, you won’t notice the difference! Bottom line: this is normal for all USB keyboards & mice.
