Had my motherboard out earlier, with all connectors removed (leaving only the gpu, ram and cpu in place). Put everything back together only to find Windows 7 now refuses to recognize my powered usb 3.0 hub. It only shows up as an unidentified device, no matter what I do (unplug/plug, reboots, different port). To be honest I'm not sure what it identified it as before, it simply worked. No manufacturer drivers supplied.

 Curiously I tried to remove the device in Windows and add it back, only to have Windows find the wireless mouse connected to the hub instead (although the driver install failed, and it doesn't work.)


Devices connected directly to the motherboard seem to work fine though, just not the hub. I'm sure I'm not the first person with this problem but I've looked around online and found no solution so far. Tried disabling power management on usb ports and also ran the Windows usb diagnosis fix thing. Any other ideas?
