i have an asus p4sd-vx oem from sony. It origionally came with 8 usb 2.0 ports however now they are all reading slower than that either usb 1.0 or 1.1. I know this becasue of my pen drive it recognizes as a high speed device in a non highspeed port (i tried all ports) also my sound blaster external 24 bit sound card has to operate at 16 bit becasue its not usb 2. I tried one device only after it booted up and still the problem. i also reinstalled the drivers with the origional and updated ones with no help. also sony told me to locate my local dealer for help (what tech support). anyways i dont want to get rid of the board but is it going? oh ya i must say my intergrated sound went a while ago ( maybe at the same time as the usb ports?) i dunno that was the beginning of september. Any help would be enourmasly helpful because i am lost and exhausted in searching for a solution.
