DriverGuide maintains an extensive archive of Windows drivers available for free download. We employ a team from around the world which adds hundreds of new drivers to our site every day. How to Install Drivers Once you download your new driver, then you need to install it. To install a driver in Windows, you will need to use a built-in utility called Device Manager. It allows you to see all of the devices recognized by your system, and the drivers associated with them.
Many device drivers are not updated through the Microsoft Windows Update service. If you are having trouble finding the right driver, stop searching and fix driver problems faster with the Automatic Driver Update Utility. Automatic updates could save you hours of time.
The Driver Update Utility automatically finds, downloads and installs the right driver for your hardware and operating system. It will Update all of your drivers in just a few clicks, and even backup your drivers before making any changes.
Many computer problems are caused by missing or outdated device drivers, especially in Windows 11. If your desktop or laptop is running slow, or keeps crashing or hanging, there is a good chance that updating your drivers will fix the problem.
I have a VIA VT6212L USB controller in my Pentium 3 (running WIndows 98se) which works brilliantly. I'm putting together a Windows 95 machine and wondering if anyone has experience finding a PCI card that has drivers for Windows 95?
I think the OP' was asking if there is a USB 2.0 PCI card that has driver for Windows 95. To my best knowledge the answer is no. The support for USB starts from OSR2 and the support for USB 2.0 starts from 98SE.
Not to mention that the lack of class drivers means it's not just mice you can't plug in and start using, but keyboards and USB flash drives all require specific drivers to be manually installed before they will work.
All you need to do is install that usb driver, it works with every flash drive I plug into it, 8GB, 16, 32, 64 and it works with my 1TB hard drive. Its just plug and play except for mouse and keyboards.
I've ordered an older USB 2.0 card, based on the ALi M5273 host controller chip, hopefully that one does work. I have a couple NEC uPD720101 based cards, but I can't find a working driver for Windows 98SE (spent hours on this issue in the past).

It can be difficult to find the exact drivers compatible with your Vectro VT6212L. However, even if you are good at locating, installing, and upgrading drivers for the Vectro VT6212L, one can still waste lots of time and be very frustrated with this endeavor.

In a computer running W2K with SP4, I have tried many methods and drivers to get this hub working. The current driver version, via Hardware / Device Manager is Microsoft 19/06/2003 V.5.0.2195.6717.The Hub is recognised, but as soon as I plug any device into it such as external USB 2.0 hard drive or a mouse the computer goes haywire. The My Computer window takes forever to scan the computer and I cannot access the USB drive. If I use Internet Explorer, the mouse plugged into a USB 1.1 connector becomes erratic.The Safely Remove Hardware allows me to remove the USB drive and the computer returns to normal.I searched Knowledge Base but the method I found was incorrect and didn't help.Note that the external USB drive works well in the internal USB 1.1 hub that I have also fitted. Removing this hub makes no difference to the USB 2.0 problem.The PCI hub is from PC World with the make of PC Line and uses a VIA VT6212L chip. I have contacted PC World but their advice did not help.Any help would be greatfully received so that I can use the USB 2.0 speed instead of USB 1.1.I was advised to come here by a moderator on Microsoft Answers Forums but I still cannot find a Windows 2000 'place' - sorry.
