View Full Version : XP Device Manager Hardware query

01-04-2011, 01:31 PM
I have been having startup problems and my research has pointed me towards USB problems.

I see in Device Manager Hardware, three items all the same..i.e. ALi PCI to USB Open Host Controller, all highlighted in yellow (not working). Attempts in properties to resurrect these has failed, so I have disabled them and left them in place. Now highlighted in red. The startup problem now seems cured, at least temporarily.

What does this ALi PCI etc relate to and is there a cure...?

Go to the mobo maker's site see if those drivers are there. Is SP3 on it?

Chipset drivers off the motherboard manufacturers website.

Yes - have SP3.

Belarc Advisor tells me :

Main Board, MSI MS-7309 1.0

AMD Athlon 2.20ghz 64 X 2 Dual Core.

Can you point me in the right direction from this....?

Thanks for that, I'll research it over the next few days.
