Compaq Presario 5000 5WV280 USB Issue

Upgraded my 5WV280 from ME to XP Pro SP2 but now my front panel USB Ports do not work.  I test my FlashLink USB Media Card on the back port and XP recognizes it automatic in sec.
Is this a driver upgrade? Power issue? XP Issue?  
Thanks Ahead of Time!

It's actually the chipset drivers you're looking for, which may not be AMD.  Download and run Everest, which may suggest a site for the motherboard drivers: http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en&pageid=3

You may need to update your motherboard drivers.  See http://www.mcse.ms/message1005451.html

can you go into device manager and see if there any "yellow question marks" or "explamation marks"

The USB Hub and Controllers are all "working properly"??

If its the chipset driver I need, I am having a hard time finding the AMD driver for this machine.  Already looked on the AMD website.

OK, found the Chipset driver which included AGP, IDE Bus & 
But no difference, does seem there is a BIOS upgrade available either, if that would help?  Could someone tell me how to resolve the problem/suggestion listed below, install more memory?  Hopefully its that easy! Thanks again ALL for your assistance!

Did you get the VIA chipset drivers? http://www.viaarena.com/Default.aspx?PageID=2

You are trying to run XP with 128MB?  This is too little and can cause problems - 256 is the minimum, and 512 is recommended.  Your AGP aperture is set to 64, which is ok, but since you only have 128 total, it is complaining.  You should set the AGP speed to auto in the BIOS.

Yes, ViaArena-XP - Chipset
Via 4-in-1 which included PCI Ide Bus driver, AGP Driver, & Inf Driver.

Do you suppose if I upgraded the memory to 512 that would fix my USB front port?  Or am I SOL?

when I go into the F10 I do not see AGP anywhere.

It's hard to say if it will fix your USB problem, but it's definitely a problem that needs to be taken care of.  Do you see more than one USB Hub using Everest under Devices->Physical Devices?

If there are no adjustments in your BIOS for AGP, then there's nothing you can do about that.
