    I am trying to use an application to connect my PS3 controller to my PC but its drivers are unsigned. I am using windows 7 professional 64bit. Now apparently I should be able to hit f8 on startup and select an option to disable the driver enforcement but my rig has UEFI bios and I am not given that option. How can I disable this? The fix does not have to be permanent as I will not be using my PS3 controller everytime I start my computer so if you have a quick workaround that will work too. I have poked around in the bios and didn't see anything that clearly states any relation to driver signing so I figured I should check here before trying anything else. Thanks for your time.

    I am not at all positive about this, but I think that you have to disable "Secure Boot" (in the UEFI BIOS).

    I think I came across a post on a different forum stating something similar but nothing definite. I will look up specifics of that setting on my next go at the problem.
