At first when I tried installing it onto the computer I just went ahead and tried it out with the add hardware wizard in the system control panel, and then it asked me for a file, I think it was usbehci.sys, I'm not sure though, I can take a look if I need to. So I found it on the internet and put it in there where it was supposed to be and tried again and now when I get it going it tells me that it isn't validated and it's not sure if it'll work with the computer but I tell it to install anyways and once I do that it says that it won't start up. This lead me to beleive that maybe my USB ports had stopped working or something, but I uninstalled it and then the USB ports worked fine again. I'm not sure how to get it working. Any help would be nice.

You will need to buy a PCI card with USB 2 ports on it to have USB2.0 capability. You cannot upgrade a USB 1 port to a USB2 port.

How about some info to work with?
Do you have a motherboard manual and driver CD? If so what make and model is the motherboard? Have you installed all the drivers? How old is the system? Have you updated the motherboard drivers from the manufacturers website? What operating system and version are you running?
