That message is usually when your connecting a usb 2.0 device, to a usb 1.x port. However that laptop has usb 2.0, so it shouldn't have that problem.
The bios has the ability to force usb 1.x, so check the bios. What device are you using? As long as you don't need the bandwidth of the higher spec, theres no reason to really fret about it.
