I have a Dell GX270DT computer running Windows XP Professional.
Can you please tell me how I can tell if my USB ports are 1.1 or 2.0?

The dell web site states the GX270 model PC supports USB2. If your model has 2 front loading USB ports and 6 rear loading, then it matches the specs I reviewed off the web.

If you've got a USB2 device, printer or something, plug it in and see.

If you get a message like "You're trying to run a high speed device off a low speed port- you're losing a lot of speed in consequence" then it's probably a USB1 port.

Otherwise probably USB2.

After all, I suppose that's the only reason to want USB2 anyway.
