This may sound a daft question but can you upgrade usb1 ports to usb2 by just installing drivers ?
Or is it a new motherboard ?

Depends on the motherboard, but you could use a PCI slot with a USB2 expansion slot card?

Not a new motherboard necessarily. I did what user8 suggests, I slotted in a USB2 pci card into the pc..

Either way you need new hardware; you can't upgrade them via software alone.
