USB 3.0 port weird behavior.

Recommended Posts

I have a Y500 with 2,02 bios ( i was having the problem before )

Here is my problem, one of my USB 3.0 port doesn't work properly in windows 7 x64. i don't know if its a driver problem or a setting in the bios i could change, i don't care about usb 3.0 support i don't have any devices that use it, i'd just like to have all my ports, the only thing i can do with that port is charge my smartphone.

Every time i plug something in that port i get the USB Device not recognized etc..

If i could get any directions to resolve this problem i'd be really thankful.

Are you getting the error message in your VM when you plug your device?

If it is, I had that exact same problem. It's because VMWare supports only one type of USB 3.0 controller (NEC chipset based) in Windows 7. Any other type and it won't work.

The only solution is to use Windows 8. Microsoft's driver will make VMware happy.

Does the same also happens on Windows 8? I say it's a driver problem in Windows 7 if not then it's hardware. Check if it works properly in Windows 8. If it does it's software problem. If not hardware. :D

Driver related, i tried with W8 x32 and W8 x64 and the problem is gone on both. I will try different drivers combo etc..

Thank you.
