    I just recently reformatted my computer and have noticed that my usb 3.0 ports in the back are not working, the usb 2.0 ports however work just fine, I updated all my drivers and that didn't change anything (Might not have gotten the right ones though)
    I would like to either get them working normally, or make them run as 2.0 ports, does not really matter to me

    I'm not really sure what other information to put here so if there is anything that might help please let me know.

    Did you install USB 3.0 drivers? Chipset drivers? USB 3.0 drivers are required by Windows 7 for them to work.

    If you tell use what computer or what motherboard you have and what Windows version you have we might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Thank you both very much, I had all the other drivers via Driver updating program, but I guess it missed that one, I installed others manually as well to be sure and all seems good now thank you~
