So I have an HP Envy 700-327c that I just bought with no hard drive. So I dropped one in and installed a fresh copy of windows 7 jumped on the HP site downloaded the drivers and went to town. When I first installed windows I have six devices under device manager that needed drivers.
PCI Simple Communications Controller
SM Bus Controller
Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller
After installing drivers PCI Simple Communication Controller and SM Bus Controller are the only drivers left that didnt seem to take.
So after hours of fighting with it I finally have all the drivers setup now I have a 5 in 1 card reader on this machine but couldnt see it so after messing with and clearing a few drivers and letting windows find the correct drivers they started working however usb 3.0 plugs dont work and I cant figure it out. They all have power but I dont get any response from the system that something plugged into them only 2.0 seems to work. I would imagine this is a driver issue but after clearing all the chipset, usb drivers and letting windows find the correct ones I still have no fix. Any help would be great.
