One of my 3.0 USB ports is not a 3.0 USB port

When i plug in my external hard drive (3.0 USB) it says it could perform faster in another port, it is in a 3.0 port, but when i change it to my other 3.0 usb port, it works as a 3.0 USB

I tried downloading the dirver for it, and it still does not work as a 3.0 USB port, only one of my 2 ports works as a 3.0

I dont know what to do, but if u guys can help me, thank you in advance!

Oh my bad, i misinterpreted my situation.

One out of the two 3.0 USB ports works AS a 3.0 USB port... for some reason

They both have the blue thing on it, but only one works as a 3.0 USB port. I downloaded the thing here, for 3.0 USB driver, but it only works for  one port still. But i want to use both ports as 3.0

I downloaded the chipset, but did not installed it because it asked me if i wanted to "downgrade" my thing.

They said the one i have is the newer verision of it, so do u want me to install it or not?

thank you

do not re-install it.
check your d:\drivers folder for intel chipset drivers.
