USB driver problems

My device manager keeps telling me that there is a problem with my USB serial adapter and my USB controller. When I check the properties of these drivers it says that the devce is unknown. I've tried auto update - without any luck!

What is my next step?:confused:

USB and XP has been a real pain for a lot of folks. Have you flashed your bios lately?

Try uninstalling it, everything related to USB, reboot and see if XP picks it up.

List some system specs so we can help you out - mainly, what kind of motherboard?

It's a DELL System. The Bios has been updated to support XP...

hey

I had the same problem. Restart the computer and go into the Bios. Look for the usb in there and Enable IRQ for USB.

BOOM... it works, or aleast it did for me !!!!

Hope this helps......

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
