Sorry I know we're not a tech forum but I've no idea how to figure out if my laptop has a USB2 port or just a USB?

I want to buy a pen drive and use ready boost with vista but my understanding is that I need a USB2 port.

Any ideas? Many thanks

Hold your thumb against the USB port. If it gets warm, then it's USB2 but if it feels really cold, like a dead woman's cheek, then it's just standard USB

It will almost certainly be usb 2, this has been standard for a very long time now

What? You mean it doesn't work?

I've been pressing USB ports with my thumb for the best part of 3 years now.

How many dead prostitutes can you fit in a garage?

Two more if I move my bike.

Plug a usb2 device in ,will usually tell you in vista or xp that you are runniing a usb2 device on a usb one port, then you will know if you have 1 or 2 ? :thumbsup:

If you have a pc than is capable of running Vista, you must have USB 2.
