Hey all,

Im running Windows 7 Professional (x64) and have a problem with two USB ports.

When i was on the 32-bit RC and my windows XP dual boot i have no problem (both 32 bit), but on 7 Professional two of my USB ports are really slow.

I have 4 ports on the motherboard, 4 plugged into the motherboard, and 2 front mounted case USB ports. As per murphys law, the convenient front mounted ones are the culprits. Conventional wisdom dictates i simply uninstall them and search for new hardware, but here lies the problem!

How do i tell in device manager which are the ones im looking for?

Im running an ASUS P5E-V HDMI Motherboard which is 64-bit capable (very capable). Any other hardware you need to know about ask.

Thanks all,

you should be able to right-click on the usb root hub device and see what devices are connected to it, and what controller it is connected to.

if you're still not sure, delete them all and they should all come back automatically.

you might want to try looking for driver updates from your motherboard support site, or intel perhaps (if its an intel controller)
