y410p USB 3.0 port problems

Just got my y410p the other week and I've noticed the usb 3.0 port to be a bit problematic in terms of noticing that anything is in it. The other 2 usb 2.0 ports are uneffected.

uninstalling the usb 3.0 driver in the device manager and letting windows rediscover it and reinstall it fixes the problem until it happens randomly again.

Wondering if any one has a more permanent fix?

Cheers

Hi, thanks for the reply. It unfortunately says I dont meet the minimum requirements to install, when I try.

I'm running windows 8, i think that might be the reason.

Install Intel Chipset Software Device Utility (INF Update)

With Haswell, USB3.0 is part of the chipset. So the chipset drivers must be updated.

Thanks again, I was already up to date, but I downloaded and reinstalled anyway. Seems to be working so far, I'll update if it stops again.
