Find out your motherboard model and read its review online. Please note that the increase in voltage that is distributed to the USB ports on the computer is only possible in the latest models of motherboards and only if in the BIOS the setting is set below the maximum.
Never increase voltage USB with custom tools or overclocking you'll just mess up the South bridge of the motherboard, or, even worse, the power supply or the whole computer.
Open the settings of the BIOS and review the settings of the voltage distribution on the USB ports. If this is an option, increase this parameter to the maximum possible, and exit, saving your changes. If your motherboard does not support this function, you can replace it with a newer model, depending on how you need it.
To increase the power supplied to USB ports, you can use the special Autonomous power supply 5V, which are sold in computer stores in your city. For each USB port in your computer is allocated a certain number of capacity units (500 mA) and modify the figure as impossible as to raise the voltage above USB possible - you'll just mess up the chip of the motherboard.
Use special adapters to connect USB devices, it helps you to preserve the proper status of ports on your computer.

Advice 2: How to determine the capacity of the computer
Many users are concerned, "powerful" is their computer. The main difficulty is that in different tasks, the computer demonstrates the different performance and numerical expressions "power computer", in General, no. There are a huge number of test programs that define the ability of a computer to carry out certain tasks, with varying degrees of specialization.

The closest to creating a single evaluation scale was approached by the company Microsoft. In the latest versions of their operating systems has such a feature, as assessment of the performance of the computer. To use this function, activate the tab "Computer" in the start menu". In the window that appears, select the menu item "system Properties". Find the line "Score", which displays a figure. This is the assessment of the performance of the computer. Clicking on the hyperlink "Windows experience Index" next to it, you can learn what the components of the sum score. The lack of this assessment in its very low precision and low information content.
Other methods of determining the "power" of the computer is focused on certain types of applications. One of the most popular benchmark, 3DMark, determines mainly the performance of computer games. To learn "gaming evaluation" of your computer, install 3DMark and run the standard test. You will receive a number of points, which will display the power of computer games. Compare your result with others on the Internet.
The computational power of the computer is determined using other test programs, one of which is the PassMark. After executing it you will get a rating of the CPU, also in points. On the website of the developer collected a huge statistics of these tests and you will be able to compare your results with the ratings from other users.
