Help getting usb 2.0 to work.?

I have a relatively recent computer, only about 1-2 years old, and have not been able to get my usb ports to run at 2.0 speed. I’ve tried doing research on the web before asking the question but can’t find a straight story.

The motherboard is a MS-7181 , and claimed on the box it supports usb 2.0. It uses the VIA chipset/

I tried updating my windows XP to service pack 2, but that didn’t work.
I go in the device manager and it has 4 listings of “VIA rev 5 or later USB Universal Host Controller”, and 4 listings of “USB root hub”. Can’t find anything that says “enhanced”, like I hear it is supposed to.

I’ve heard that I might have to download some drivers seperate than just the service pack, but this is where I’m confused as to what drivers I need. Can’t figure out if I need drivers from microsoft, or directly from VIA since its a via chipset, or what.

What drivers to I need to get it to work and where can I get them? Thanks.

Chosen Answer:

does your computer have the usb 2.0 ports? You have to buy the hardware(the 2.0 usb ports) in order to have 2.0 usb speed.
