External DVD Drive/USB question

by FitDad38 / May 24, 2006 3:30 PM PDT

Today I bought a Sony external DVD drive. It looks the system up whenever plugged in to rear USB. After some research, I realize my USB are 1.1 ports.

Error message says "There are no High-Speed host controllers installed on this computer - you must add a Hi-Speed USB host controller to this computer."

So - if I go to Staples or Comp USA tomorrow, exactly what do I ask for? Is there some sort of Hi Speed 2.0 adapter I can just plug in to the back of my system?

You need a USB 2.0 CARD
by linkit / May 24, 2006 5:46 PM PDT

What is your computer make & model?

1. Open your desktop computer case to see if you have any empty PCI expansion slots. Do you have an empty one?

2. Purchase a USB 2.0 PCI card for the empty PCI slot. Make sure the card says ''USB 2.0'' and not ''USB 1.1''

Staples, CompUSA, CircuitCity, BestBuy, RadioShack, and Wal-Mart have them. Lots of them online, too.

If this is for a notebook computer, then you can purchase a PC CARD (PCMCIA) adapter with USB 2.0 ports.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
