by stanz3x / November 24, 2006 3:36 AM PST

Okay i recently bought a USB 2.0 4 port hub

thats the exact one, reason is i bought an Ipod Video 80GB, and it says its USB 2.0 capable , but i dont have USB 2.0, so thats why i bought the usb 2.0 4 port hub, okay it still updates with the same speed all pluged in, even weirder when i plug it in, it says you need USB 2.0 port to operate this device, i think the problem is that this is just an extention of USB 2.0, can anyone help i am confused, Did i buy USB 2.0 or do i need to have USB 2.0 port in order to use this product

So who can help me, did i missunderstand something, seriouly this would be so much easyier if it place in the system requirments that i need USB 2.0, or do i? may the software is out of date how can i update it

Your motherboard is USB 1.1. Therefore your USB 2.0 hub cannot run at high-speed. To use that hub you would have to install a USB 2.0 PCI card. That would add the USB 2.0 ports to the back of your PC and enable speeds of 480 Mbps.

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?
