Just built a new PC, everything is running absolutely fine except for the USB 3.0 ports.
I have 2 in the front of the case (plugged into motherboard) and another 4 built into the motherboard. All USB 2.0 ports are working fine. I have had a few times where the light on the USB 3.0 flash drive has come on when plugged into one of the USB 3.0 ports, but it does not flash as it should, and it does not show up at all in Windows. No noise to notify me that it has been connected or anything, and the majority of the time there is no light on the flash drive.
I am assuming this is a driver issue however I am having no luck obtaining any solutions/drivers.
My setup is:
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Hero CPU: Intel i5-4670k OS: Windows 8.1
Any other info required just request.
UPDATE: I have installed latest BIOS and still no luck.
UPDATE 2: Problem solved. Setting in BIOS USB configuration, set to Smart-Auto causing it to only send enough power to allow USB 2.0 devices to run in USB 3.0 ports. Disable setting = USB 3.0 devices work.
