    are the usb devices you are using 2.0 compatible?
    Did you install the chipset drivers?
    There's not much more you can do... any hardware that predates usb 2.0 should probably be put out of its misery.
    Current build:
    Cooler Master HAF 922 case
    Thermaltake 750 watt modular psu
    MSI P67A-C43 board
    8 GB Corsair XMS DDR3 1300
    Intel core i5 Sandy Bridge quad core@ 3.3 ghz
    MSI GTX 570
    WD 2 TB HDD
    64-bit Windows 7
    Rosewill USB Wirless Adapter
    LG Blu-Ray DVD Combo Drive
    I'm a PC!

    What OS? XP did not include drivers for USB2 until SP2 (possibly SP1 as well but you get the drift).

    Thank you,
    I thought that may be it. Processor is p4 423 so MB is old.

    If...
    your existing USB hardware is USB 1.1...
    To find out...
    Look in Device Manager for USB Enhanced Host Controller, and beneath it [when devices are displayed "By Connection" and the tree expanded] USB 2.0 Root Hub, and if they are not there...
    Then...
    You could fit a low cost PCI to USB 2.0 card.
