    USB is incompatible after upgrade ME to XP (HP PC)

    I got a problem USB port since I wanted to upgrade her Windows to XP. I setup WXP by upgrading from ME.
    After the installation is done. I check any problem in device manager, and I found that the USB is not working.
    I need some help from somebody help me fix the USB.
    My PC is HP pavilion which come with the recovery cd for WME. Is that a problem why my USB port is not work in WXP?

    Upgrading will likely cause such problem and the best thing to install Xp is by doing a clean install.

    Try to remove the USB devices from the Device Manager and later restart the system. XP should redetect the USB port and install the correct driver for it.

    Agreed with Berseker, a clean install (format C:\) or uncheck the USB root in Device MAnager or just uninstall it and restart comp.
