USB 2.0 question



My computer had a strange crash. I got a blue screen with
"Unmountable_Boot_Volume" error. I ended up using my computers restore
function and have spent awhile recovering. Luckily I had backups of all my
important info and my computer seems to be operating OK. The OS is
winxpsp2. I have run scans, sfc, etc and I can not find out why the problem
happened. However, I am not sure about my drivers. I am checking them and
updating some. The USB drivers are my present concern. The first one is
the Generic USB Hub with Microsoft Driver 5.1.2600.0 dated 7/1/2001. There
is a standard enhanced PCI to USB host controller with Microsoft Driver
5.1.2600.0 dated 6/1/2002. Then that are others. Nothing says USB 2.0.
Are these the correct drivers for USB 2.0. I have done a google search and
I think that I do not have the Enhanced USB driver for USB 2.0 even though I
have sp2. What should I look for and if it is a problem, how do I get the
correct drivers?



sounds odd.
but i think that windows update
would have noted any inconsistencies
with its microsoft drivers. conflicts
can be easily seen via msinfo32.
and if there are conflicts, sometimes
they can be easily resolved by looking
into the driver properties and changing
the resources like irq's.

however, you can always go into safe mode
with the usb's unplug and remove
the drivers. if you got usb boards
installed, then temporarily remove them.
if your cmos has usb support, then
disable it temporarily.

then get back into
normal mode and see how
your o.s. functions without them

if ok, then the usb's may be
posing a conflict as you beleive.

an issue with usbs is sometimes due
to the fact that usb 1.0 and usb 2.0
use different speeds and can create
issues for your pc.

another thing that might help
is that ms has a free download for
usb's. something to do with
power mangement/distribution
by the o.s..

let us know....
