Everytime I plug in a device with 2.0 compatible the Windows notification pops up saying "plug it in a 2.0 for faster speed" well...why is this happening?  What do I do?

you about the computer crash I had earlier today.  Now any usb 2.0 device i plug in is only transferring at 1.0 speed...and I know the mobo onboard 2.0 worked before the crash.

OK . . I found it . . sounds like you have some issues with that motherboard or the operating system . . Are you up to reinstallling the operating system to rule that out?

no.  This error just happened today.  I rebooted the system and went into my BIOS and changed from HIspeed to FullSpeed.  Now I plugged in a device and I didn't get the message "plug into a faster port for better speed 2.0, blah blah"

>>   went into my BIOS and changed from HIspeed to FullSpeed  <<  that is what did it.
probably your bios got reset to low speed by an application, or device

Thanks for the attendance, even though I figured it out.  Nobus is probably right about the reset, odd though :)
