kamleshgwalani,

The first version of XP supports USB 2.0 it seems like it is the ports or the hardware itself that are the problem.  It looks like that computer would have originally come with an older OS like Windows 98.  If that is the case your problem is the hardware and no driver or service pack will change it.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

I would simply install a USB2.0 PCI card. You cant physcially upgrade the hardware, as b0lsc0tt stated.

No.  The USB hub would still use a non USB 2.0 connector to the computer.  The PCI card Johnb suggested is a good option.  If it is a laptop (I can't remember right now) then you could use a PC Card to add a USB 2.0 port.
