is it actually run off the z77chipset?

there are 4 more usb 3's on the back of hat board.

are the ones on the header run off the z77 or a third party like nec/asmedia??

are there any things in device manager not installed.

I have the asmedia installed -- idk if it uses intel or asmedia

I just used a multimeter and the usb3 header power pins are getting 4.95v thats close enough to 5 for me to think it should be working

then go to asrock's site and get the latest driver for the other usb controller

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Pro4/index.asp?cat=Download&os=&c=

then restart and see if that got it.

i see you have some wdm drivers installed so that's an issue

k reinstalled chipset drivers install asmedia usb3 from website...

It does seem to be somehow driver related because if I plug in my mouse the laser turns on but the mouse doesn't actually work... I tried a wired 360 controller I have and it only lights up for a second.

No device connected noise is ever made when stuff is connected to it .....

Noticed it still says intel usb 3 etc etc by microsoft..... ?

I think those are for windows 7 only, they both say I don't meet the minimum. I'm guessing I need the series 7 one

I guess that says the microsoft one is correct... it did make uninstall the driver I had before going from 7 to 8.

i think the header is just dead lol.

Windows 8* has a native in-box USB 3.0 driver. Intel is not releasing a specific Intel® USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver for Windows 8.

If you are upgrading Windows 7* to Windows 8, uninstall the Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver before installing the upgrade.
im not sure what you can do then.

do you have a copy of windows 7 handy to see if it can be installed and if its working?
