Default USB ports

My niece has an AMD K6 350 mother board and when she loaded Windows XP the USB ports are no longer active. I was told that Win XP should automatically recognize the USBs, but no matter what I do I can't get them to activate. It's been suggested to me that it might be a BIOS problem. I would really appreciate any help I can get on this one, it has me stumped.

idea Re: USB ports

If the usb port(s) are integrated on the motherboard, first check in BIOS setup to make sure they are enabled. It sounds like they are currently disabled.

Windows XP (without SP2 or higher) will only provide USB 1.1 support. When you install SP2 (or higher), you will automatically get USB 2.0 support. However, in order to get USB 2.0 support, you must have a USB 2.0 controller. No software will make a USB 1.1 controller turn into a USB 2.0 controller. In Device Manager, under USB Controllers, if there exists the word "Enhanced", that tells you that the controller is USB 2.0.

No additional software or drivers are required. Microsoft provides all support for USB Controllers.
