I recently upgraded my BIOS to a version that, as I was told by the company that sent it to me, would support USB 2.0. I've looked in device manager and system properties for a statement of which USB version I'm using, but I can't find anything.

PROBLEM A: How do I tell if Windows XP thinks I'm running USB 2.0 now?

PROBLEM B: If Windows isn't running USB 2.0, what should I do to change this?

In Device Manager, Look under Universal Serial Bus Controller, Expand it and see if there is any word called "Enhanced" in it.

If there is, then it means it's able to support USB2.0 else it's USB1.1.

If it does not support USB2.0, then you can get a PCI USB2.0 card to use. It's pretty cheap by the way.
