Hi there, first thread on the website my apologies if format is incorrect or if I'm posting in the wrong section.

So, my USB 3.0 ports don't seem to work, the 2.0 ports work fine however. When plugging a device in there is no response, though for example devices such as a Microsoft xbox controller, the lights on it will flash once quickly then turn off and be unusable. Same goes for usb's and other peripherals with lights on them.

Things I have tried doing:
I have checked in BIOS if 3.0's are enabled, and they are.
I have tried uninstalling all usb hubs / controllers in Device Manager.
Checking for windows updates (none)

PC Specs:
- OS: Windows 7
- CPU: AMD FX-8320 (not overlocked)
- RAM: Avexir Core, 16gb (2x8gb) DDR3
- Motherboard: ASRock 980DE3/U3S3
- GPU: AMD Radeon R9 390 (MSI)
- No Optical Drives

Thank you for such a speedy reply! That seems to have worked too thank you very much!
Rather strange that it no longer worked all of a sudden but oh well, all is well.

Again, thank you very much.
