Motherboard Question
hey guys,

so i wanted to ask if there was a quick way to tell which usb connections are USB 2.0 on my motherboard. I always assumed that all of them were USB 2.0 but sometimes my webcam will decide to turn off and on and then i'll get a little bubble on my task bar that says that the device would work better if plugged into a USB 2.0. so i wanted to ask if there is a way to tell which ones are USB 2.0

my motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD

thanks.

From what I have seen, most USB3 ports are blue and the USB2 ports are black.
Looking up your motherboard, it looks to me that is has USB 1.1/2.0 only.

Yes. All 2.0/1.1 means is that it is a USB2 port and it is compatible with USB 1.1 devices. Similarly USB3 can work with USB2 devices. They are all backwards compatible.
