Erase ALL USB 3.0 drivers?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

My little boy's Biostar HiFi A85W USB 3.0 ports are still giving me grief, and I think it's a driver issue. I finally got the drivers to load and got rid of the "Code 10 device cannot start" junk, but the ports now only recognize USB 2.0 devices. If I plug a USB 3.0 specific device in, I hear the "connect" sound, then the devices light flashes and there's a disconnect sound, and it just goes on connecting and disconnecting. If I plug that USB 3 device into the 2.0 port, works fine. If I plug a USB 2 device into the USB 3 port, works fine. All devices work properly on all the other machines. SO....

What I want to do before wiping the slate and reinstalling Windows is to erase ALL the USB 3.0 drivers (or even all motherboard specific drivers) from everywhere and start from scratch. Want them off the hard disk, out of the registry, just like they never existed. Can someone tell me how to do that?

Thanks,

Jack

You could look at USBDeview, it's used a lot for installing/uninstalling phone phone drivers.

Thanks, I'll give that a look. I really just want to delete any recorded drivers for the entire USB chipset and start over, but so far I've had no luck on my own.

Okay, I used USBDeview, and it does give a lot of information, but doesn't list any of the USB root hubs or baseline drivers. I tried it on two different systems with different motherboard manufacturers.

Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Anyone else know of a manual or automated way to accomplish this?

Thanks,

Jack
