G580 - USB 3.0 Ports - Unable to start - Code 10 - Lenovo G580 - Windows 7, 8, 8.1 & 10. Please help :-(

2015-09-26, 15:13 PM

Hi All.


I have been facing this issue since last two weeks.


I have Lenovo 580. Currently in Windows 7 - x64.


Suddenly both my USB 3.0 ports stopped working. I tested by inserting multiple pen drives, external hard discs and they weren't even getting the power.


When I go to Device Manager, under Universal Serial Bus Controller -> There is an exclamation mark next to : Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller.


Read few posts here, tried installing all sorts of drivers from Lenovo, Intel.

Thinking that OS reinstallation would help, I installed Windows 10, 8.1, 8 & now in 7.

But the ports aren't getting the required power or detected. 



I am sure I am missing something. Can someone please help me or point me to the right direction to fix this ? :-(


Thank you in advance.

hi icykash,


From the steps that you've tried, it does look like there's a hardware problem on the USB 3.0 ports (especially if you're getting Code 33 or 43 from the Device Manager).



Error codes in Device Manager


Last thing that you probably try:

1. Run the Hardware devices are not working  or the Diagnose and fix Windows USB problems tool from microsoft.


2. Shutdown the machine, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then hold the power button for 20secs (this drains any electric charge that's left on the machine).


When finished, plug-in the AC adapter and turn on the machine then hit F2 to boot into the BIOS. Once In the BIOS, hit F9 to load default settings then hit F10 to save and exit (this resets the hardware configuration of the machine to default).


When the machine boots back into Windows, check if the USB 3.0 ports are now working,


In case this still doesn't fixes the issue then I recommend you will need to send the unit for service.
