IC - I didn't realize you had a separate USB PCI card installed. If it's
USB1, and it appears to be, then the drivers for it are on the Windows 98SE
disk. Reinstall the drivers for it through the Device Manager. Right Click
My Computer on the Desktop and click Device Manager. Scroll down to USB.

If it's USB2, then you'll have to download the drivers from Belkin.

Do you have all the Windows Updates available from Windows Update?

I forgot to tell you what the other USB card was. He is a copy of the
Everest Home Edtion read again:

Peripherals
USB1 Controller ALi M5237 USB Open Host Controller
USB1 Controller OPTi 82C861/2/3 FireLink USB Controller

I know that the name brand on the USB card that I just got is a Belkin.
Thanks again for all your help. Keith

I have tried to reinstall the drivers through device manager a few times
now and each time that I try it won't go through. When I look in Windows
Update it comes up: do you want to install and run windows\temp\direct.b1.
I say yes and nothing happens. When I try through the win98se CD it won't
pull it off the disk.

How can I tell if the USB card that I just put in from Belkin is a USB1 or
a USB2? What would happen if I downloaded the drivers from Belkin for a
USB2 and I actually had a USB1? I'm really confused. Keith

The box the USB card came in should tell you if it's USB 1 or USB2. You can
also check the model number of the USB card on Belkin's website.

There is the possibility that you are getting an IRQ conflict (InteRrupt
reQuest). On older motherboards, the AGP video card and the first PCI slot
(the one right next to the AGP slot) can share the same IRQ.

Is the USB card in the slot next to the AGP video card? If so, move it to
another PCI slot. If possible, leave PCI slot 1 empty.

I know it's very hard for you guys to fix a problem in this method,
writing back and forth. I realize if you were sitting down in front of the
computer with all the problems you could see what was actually happening
instead of relying on some elses eyes and would be able to remedy the
problem in a short period of time. I like this newsgroup because 99% of the
time the problem that someone may have is fixed very quickly. I don't like
to take the computer to anybody because I am trying to learn this stuff for
when I retire in a couple of years. I did take it to a guy I work with so
he could watch me and see if I was doing anything wrong aa to why we
couldn't get the USB ports working. He noticed that the problem was that I
was using the Upgrade CD instead of the Original 98SE CD. What he did was
copy all the files to my C drive so when the computer asked for the Windows
98 disk all I had to do was to send it looking in the C drive.
Maybe if someone could use a PC camera to show what they were doing with
the instruction that you give, it would be much easier for you guys.
I appreciate all the time and help you devoted to fixing my problem and
would like to thank you very much. signed: Only Two Options in Display

So, the problem has been solved? If so, that's great and thanks for letting
us know it's fixed.

I use a 98SE Update disk and have no problem extracting drivers when the New
Hardware Found Wizard asks for them. However, if the method your friend
uses works, then that's all that counts.

As for pictures, you can upload screenshots or digital photos of what's on
your monitor to your website and post links to them like I did in previous
posts.
