Hello Steve, the latest validated driver for the USB 3 ports on your motherboard is the version 188.8.131.52. At this time I recommend you to uninstall any USB 3 driver that you have, update the BIOS and download the validated driver for your motherboard.
If the problem continues, the problem may be related to a hardware problem.
Thanks for the reply. I have downloaded 184.108.40.206 USB 3.0 driver, and uninstalled my current driver. I downloaded the latest BIOS update in .EXE format, performed the BIOS update, from Windows. The system rebooted, displayed the updating information, and now I am not getting any display from the system, although I can hear the system booting.
I am currently trying the BIOS recovery (.BIO) file from a thumb drive, but that does not appear to be doing anything, it has been 10 minutes so far.
I am having the exact same problem with my board dz77re-75k. and the latest driver from intel IS 220.127.116.11
The 18.104.22.168 is dated and not current, but no matter neither one works.
This is the second board I have tried, the first one I had would not post.
So I am hard pressed to believe that I got two bad boards in a row, if so Intel really is not a very good company.
so not sure how to proceed.
