First off I have a IBUYPOWER 101 batalion turbo laptop or its also a uniwill 259en1 notebook as well. Ive had this for about 2.5 years however after about the 2 year mark I started having some problems. One of which and the only problem I couldn't fix is that the three USB ports on the computer are only being recognized as USB 1.1 when they were USB 2.0 for the first two years. Ive tried a lot of different things in order to fix the problem. Including:

Reinstalled drivers in Device Manager
Visited the intel website and got a new chipset driver
Used Driver Genius to help me locate drivers
Updated BIOS to most recent version

However all of the above didn't fix the problem and when I go to device manager all I see under Universal Serial Bus Controllers are these which signify that they are only USB 1.1
Intel(R) 82801FB/FBM USB Universal Host Controller - 2658
Intel(R) 82801FB/FBM USB Universal Host Controller - 2659
Intel(R) 82801FB/FBM USB Universal Host Controller - 265A
Intel(R) 82801FB/FBM USB Universal Host Controller - 265B

Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks

Did you try to download and install USB 2.0 driver?

Hey thanks for responding. But I tried downloading a number of "USB 2.0" drivers but they were never really labeled that clearly. As for the BIOS, I checked through that a number of times and haven't seen anything about USB 2.0. Is there anything it could be hidden under?

Hi again o1generallee413!!

Try to visit this site:

Windows Update

Try restarting computer after installing the windows update above. See whether your USB is detected as enhanced controller now.




If that doesn't work, try downloading this driver:
82801FB/FBM USB Enhanced Controller

Hope that helps

The link worked for me. It could be your browser blocking the redirect? I don't know! So I dug the direct link out of the Download. Here's the direct link to the file:

Hey your linked work great it just took some waiting. However when I unpack the files and run the setup program it doesn't seem to install anything. When I click the next button after checking the "agree to terms" box, to load time is instant and goes straight to the window where it says its successfully installed. How do you go about installing a chipset package? The download also came with a folder for the various operating systems with a bunch of random files included. Thanks again for the help its really appreciated.

You can try to check the status of your USB now in your Device Manager. Is there anything like Enhanced controller under your USB controllers? Try to restart computer first (if you still doesn't restart since install the driver) before checking this out

Its still reading as universal host controller unfortunately. I believe its something to do with the installation of the chipset drivers. what is the proper way to install them, from the actual "setup.exe" file or through the files in the "XP" folder? Thanks guys

Try to run the Everest software, and post your system configuration here, so that I can try to find the chipset driver for your computer. Maybe you can use cpu-z if not familiar with Everest. The link for Everest and cpu-z is under my signature down there

Hi o1generallee413!!

Seems like brow96 faster than me

Yup, that is the specific page for your computer model, I just check it out too. This is the download page from the previous post. Try to download the chipset, and see whether your USB is updated to 2.0

Driver Download Page

Hey thanks guys I got to that page and got the chipset. However after installation and reboot the USB ports are still only 1.1. I even tried to uninstall the 4 Host controllers under device manager and then install the chipset again and still was unsuccessful.

Any more suggestions? Thanks again guys for the help

Hi there o1generallee413

I think I have a similar problem. See my post "Two Wobbly USB Ports" today
Are you getting any further?
Watching in anticipation

Hi o1generallee413!!

Just to make sure, are you really sure your computer is USB2.0 capable before?

Try to give a check on BIOS once again, and see if there is anything related with USB2.0 or Enhanced USB there?

Haha yeah im sure it was USB 2.0 before. Im not the kind of person to not know if he had it or not. The BIOS in my computer really doesn't have a whole lot of information in it and nothing about USB anything. Any other ideas?

Try to uninstall the driver for your current USB driver, and install the chipset driver followed by USB driver once again
