The information provided by you about the new revision available for this specific model number is correct, but this is related to a change on the PHC (Peripheral Controller Hub), which will be converted from C1 to C2 stepping.
If you are having issues with the USB3.0, please do a BIOS update to the version 0344.
Make sure you have the latest USB 3.0 driver installed on your system.
Thanks Sylvia. I updated to the latest BIOS, so we'll see how it goes from here.
Note, after starting the .exe file, upon restart I received the error, "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Import Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". I unplugged and replugged the USB devices, my PC rebooted and successfully applied the BIOS update. Weird, huh?
Johnny Ho, this .exe file you mentioned on the previous post, is this BIOS file you tried to install?
We recommend customers the F7 method instead, it is more accurate . The following link will show you how to do a BIOS update.
Please go to the BIOS screen (F2) and double check if the current BIOS version is 0344 and let me know.
