Well if you would like to list the hardware/software involved

And what is actually happening it would be of some assistance as by reading your question it appears that 1 USB Port is working but not the other. Is that correct?

Also where did you get the Intel USB2 driver from as the M'Board may not support this High Speed USB type so it will not work. Then there is the question of what OS are you using if it's XP and you have not installed SP2 again USB2 isn't supported. Are you also sure that you have an Intel Chip Set M'Board as using Intel Drivers on another Chip Set M'Board are unlikely to work. Even if you do have an Intel Chip Set M'Board if the USB2 drivers where written for a different Chip Set they will not work either.
