Computer Management

System Tools

Device Manager

On the View menu, click Devices by type

In the details pane, click the plus sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers

If the word "Enhanced" is included in any of the listed controllers, your computer has USB 2.0 controller drivers installed.

If you cannot find the word "Enhanced" in any of the listed controllers, perform the following procedure:

Stop using any USB devices (such as a printer or Web cam) except the mouse and keyboard

In the details pane, click the plus sign to the left of Other devices Then, under Other devices right-click Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller, and then click Update Driver

If Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller is not listed under Other devices, you cannot install a USB 2.0 driver To find out more about installing these drivers, contact the manufacturer of your computer
