Default USB 2.0 keeps reverting to USB 1


I have a computer desktop thats now a few years old. It has onboard an
Intel 82801BA/BAM USB 1 controler. Because I wanted to upgrade to hi
speed, it purchased a PCI USB 2.0 controller, which the system reports
as a VIA Rev 5 or later. From the very start XP refused to recognise it
as USB 2, and I was getting the stupid message "your device can perform
faster" etc, everyting time I pluged ANY USB2 device. I did manage to
find some VIA specific drivers on the internet that appeared to fix the
problem, but only as long as I did not switch the computer off (standard
reboot does not effect it). When I perform a cold boot the VIA USB2
Enhanced Host Controler has vanished, and again I get the daft "your
device can perform faster". I now have the problem of having to
reinstall the drivers evertime I want to use my webcam, memory stick,
etc. This is driving me crazy, and obviously is not what should be
happening. Strangly, if I view hidden devices in device manager, it
still exists, but greyed out. Note that I only plug USB1 devices
(keyboard, mouse etc) into the onboard intel USB 1 ports.
Please note that the system BIOS is running latest version.


My system is as follows

Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
Install Language: English (United States)
System Locale: English (United Kingdom)
Installed: 10/12/2008 12:21:27

256 kilobyte secondary memory cache
Not hyper-threaded

That is what I am saying Mark, wrong driver. Sure it seems to work and
all until you boot up once again and then XP dumps it. And XP is dumping
it because it isn't the correct driver for whatever reason.

And that would be which brand and model from the hundreds, or more,
available?

Some provide their own driver knowing what's included in Windows won't
work with their device. Others use the Windows-embedded drivers but
require you update Windows to ensure you have the latest set of drivers
so one of them closely matches their product. You said you have SP-3
for Windows XP so that's not the problem but not installing the driver
the *maker* provides for their device could be the problem. Can't tell
if the product has its own driver since you didn't mention brand and
model of the product.

I did manage to find some VIA specific drivers on the internet


Wrong place to look. If the product's *maker* has a driver, get it from
there. If they don't provide a driver, they are relying on those
included in Windows, not some unknown driver for some other brand's
different model retrieved from an unknown source.

When I perform a cold boot the VIA USB2 Enhanced Host Controler has
vanished, and again I get the daft "your device can perform faster".


Possibly the wrong driver as Bill suggested, especially since you didn't
get the driver for THAT hardware from its maker.

If the maker doesn't provide their own driver and is relying on those
included with Windows, have you run through the hardware wizard to see
which drivers are available in Windows?

- Run the Device Management applet (devmgmt.msc).
- Right-click on the USB daughtercard you installed & select Properties.
- Right-click on it and select Properties for your VIA controller card.
- On the General tab, a PCI bus *other* than 0 (zero) should be listed
for the daughtercard (mobo controllers are on PCI bus 0).
- Look under the Driver tab.

Although my PCI daughtercard to add 4 USB ports uses a VIA chip, the
Windows driver gets used. So under the Drivers tab, I see a Microsoft
driver listed, not some VIA driver. While on the Driver tab:

- Click the "Update Driver" button.
- Select "No, not this time" and click Next.
- Select "Install from list ..." and click Next.
- Select "Don't search" and click Next.
- Deselect the "View compatible hardware" option.
- In the Manufacturer column, select "VIA Technologies".
- Look in the Model column to pick what best matches your hardware.

Here you have to do some guessing. For me, the "VIA USB Enhanced Host
Controller" model is preselected. The driver for that will be listed as
from Microsoft, *not* VIA back under the Driver tab in the properties
for the device. You certainly don't want to pick whatever was that
unknown driver you found since it obviously doesn't work with the
hardware you actually have.

Strangly, if I view hidden devices in device manager, it still exists,
but greyed out.


It is not a working device. The device is connected but it is not
usable. Wrong driver.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315539

Because the device is unknown is why you saw it ghosted (greyed out)
when you elected to "Show hidden devices". If you set the environment
variable as noted in the article and start devmgmt.msc from that same
shell (so the env var is defined when devmgmt loads) then you'll see a
whole bunch of devices that aren't currently connected but were known
(enumerated) previously. With this env var used for devmgmt, and say
you previously plugged in a USB camera, it will now be listed as a
hidden device despite that it isn't plugged in right now.

Rather than have to set this env var in a shell and then run diskmgmt
from that shell (so it sees that env var value of 1), you can add this
env var to the System variables. This lets you use devmgmt to see ALL
disconnected devices (that have been previously enumerated because they
were plugged in before). So your device was known before hence showing
its enumerated data for "Show hidden devices" but it isn't considers a
connected device right now (i.e., it isn't usable right now).

You'll need to use the right driver for the device to be usable.

USB2 will only be available on the new USB card connectors. The motherboard
ones will remain at USB 1.1.

Windows should already have a driver, in the form of "usbport.inf". I have
a sample I can see, in here.

C:\WINDOWS\inf\usbport.inf

The .inf will match on certain USB hardware types. Or, the generic "class"
number of the USB hardware will match. So it doesn't have to explicitly
match a VEN/DEV value. The free version of Lavalys Everest, can report
hardware identification info, if you wanted to track down what is being
reported.

http://majorgeeks.com/download4181.html

Or you can use Device Manager. For example, this is a generic
identifier for a "standard" USB2 piece of hardware. My other PC may have
had one like this. CC stands for Class Code.

PCI\CC_0C0320

In terms of my USB2 device right now, I see these files for USB2 being used.
All of these files, if I do properties on them, belong to Microsoft.

usbehci.sys, usbhub.sys, usbport.sys, hccoin.dll, usbui.dll

and that's for an "Enhanced" device manager entry in the USB section.

You can check "setupapi.log" file in WinXP, where attempts to install
drivers are listed in chronological order. Look for warnings or
errors in there. That log file "rolls over" after a while, so you'll
see several files with similar names.

I suspect installing an ancient driver, that predates SP3, is a mistake.
The files I have in my SP3 for USB, are all dated 4/14/2008. The
"DriverVer" line in usbport.inf , is misleading, as the file is
dated 4/14/2008, while the comment mentions 07/01/2001, which likely
isn't correct. Some of the info in the inf, only existed after
2001 (like some of the VEN and DEV numbers for the Intel hardware).
So that file really isn't "07/01/2001" in any real sense. The
content is consistent with 4/14/2008.

And checking the logs for the install files I used for my
Asrock motherboard with VIA chipset, the VIA drivers for the
chipset, don't include a USB section. So usbport.inf (already in SP3)
solves that problem. VIA released copies of the Microsoft drivers, back
before they were told to stop doing that. And those drivers are now
a little too old (like the 2.2.5 ones). If there's an Add/Remove,
perhaps they should just be removed and then, a reboot.

Now, if it's still screwed up, then I'd go back to Device Manager,
view the Hidden Devices again, and delete the Hidden Device for
the USB. And then maybe the problem will resolve itself as the hardware is
rediscovered. I seem to remember having to do that, for some
other non-USB thing, delete the hidden device entry, before
I could get something properly installed.

I _think_ he's saying that a reboot _doesn't_ dump it - only cycling the

that some peripherals do hold in on-board memory).

It sounds like maybe the power supply is not giving enough juice
anymore, and that it is now delaying the startup of your add-in USB
board. The startup delay causes it to fallback to a safer, more
conservative setting. That would be why the problem only occurs after
power-on, but not during a warm reboot.

Try the card in a different PCI slot

looks like the bios is changing the way resources are allocated.


If that does not do the trick...go the them mfg's website and get the

Perhaps "on the internet" is a bit of a misnomer on my part. I
downloaded directly from VIA website, file name VIAUSB2V270-L. The XP
part of it is in fact a filter driver, which is supposed to "enhance"
the onboard Microsoft drivers.

I'll try shifting it to another PCI slot, and if that does not work, I
think I'll just pay for a new one with a NEC chipset, as I have been
told they are much better.

as a VIA Rev 5 or later. From the very start XP refused to recognise it
as USB 2, and I was getting the stupid message "your device can perform
faster" etc, everyting time I pluged ANY USB2 device. I did manage to
find some VIA specific drivers on the internet that appeared to fix the
problem,

Try the card in a different PCI slot

looks like the bios is changing the way resources are allocated.


If that does not do the trick...go the them mfg's website and get the
latest drivers rather then questionable ones you found on the internet.


Perhaps "on the internet" is a bit of a misnomer on my part. I
downloaded directly from VIA website, file name VIAUSB2V270-L. The XP
part of it is in fact a filter driver, which is supposed to "enhance"
the onboard Microsoft drivers.



Ok, then I'm sure you got the correct driver

I'll try shifting it to another PCI slot, and if that does not work, I
think I'll just pay for a new one with a NEC chipset, as I have been
told they are much better.



No guarantee of course but I have seen that work quite a few times
