No USB function using XP in Omnibook 4100

I recently installed the max. memory in this notebook to upgrade the unit to XP operating system. It works well with XP. But, I noticed that the USB port was not functioning. It does not appear in the device manager as well. Does anyone have a solution as in a patch device driver? Could this be caused by a limitation of the old bios? The manual for troubleshooting indicates that the USB function will not work with Windows NT 4.0. Has anyone come up with a solution? Thanks in advance.

You might take a look at the Appnotes in the BIOS update here. http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00293075/c00293075.pdf It appears that the cardbus controller was involved in some way. The cardbus and USB are somewhat connected on some machines.
