I was searching the internet and found that Bios has a USB 2.0 setting of which I disabled. After this, the device manager no longer shows the Intel® 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB2 Enhanced host Controller - 27CC and it seems my problems are now solved. At one point in time, I may have changed that setting to see what would have happened, but I didn't think so. What I don't know is if I should enable that setting and search for the drivers. I would have thought that any updates done to the OS would have included modified drivers for USB and USB 2 given that everyone has USB. What I'm not sure of is if USB 2 is hardware or software driven, meaning Is USB universal for USB and USB 2.0? or is there specific hardware. If ther eis specific hardware, how can you tell through the device manager etc.
What are your thoughts on what I should do?
1.) Leave Bios alone and don't enable USB 2.0?
2.) Change Bios back to enable 2.0 and update the driver?
