I think my USB driver is corrupted. I found the ChipSet, LAN and BIOS drivers for my old Equium L40-10U PSL41E running Vista 32bit. However, I did not find the USB drives that I need. Are the USB drivers contained within the ChipSet, BIOS or LAN driver?
If not, where can I locate and download the USB drivers for my old Equium old L40-10U PSL41E running Vista 32bit?
I was able to download and use the "ChipSet" driver. I went to the Device Manager and updated the USB drivers. However, this didn't fix the problem. The computer is still running very slow when I use the cellular modem thru a USB port. When I connect to WiFi with nothing in the USB ports, the computer runs OK. However, getting internet thru WiFI or ethernet LAN is not available where I live. The only internet available here (Kerala, India) is cellular modem. The computer is about 6 years old so I think I'm going to replace it soon.
I also tried running the cellular modem with Ubuntu 12.04 (running from a USB stik), but that is also very slow. So I think there's some deeper problem in the computer.
If you know of some good USB diagnostic software, let me know. That could help. Thanks!
Running slow means everything and all apps runs slow, including the internet.
I updated the USB drivers, but that didn't help. I've also done pre- and post-boot virus scans that cleaned out some viruses, but the slowness is still there.
After I get a new computer, I may format the drive on the old computer and install Ubuntu to see if that helps.
I may search for some diagnostic software just to see what's going on.
I ran CC Cleaner but that didn't help.
