Hi, My name is Paul and I have jkust purchased an Acer Aspire XC-105 which I have installed windows 7 64bit on. However the USB 3.0 Host Bus doesn't appear tio be recognised. with the AMD Chipset drivers that Acer supplies.
I have tried the Win 8 and Win 8.1 drivers to no avail (Chipset_AMD_220.127.116.11_W8x64_A and Chipset_AMD_18.104.22.168_W81x64_A) respectively.
I have also tried to look for the AMD driver for the device via the device Hardware ID (
PCI\VEN_1022&DEV_7814&SUBSYS_08001025&REV_01) again to no avail. I believe this to be an AMD A45 chipset but cannot lcate it on AMD's site.
Is any kind soul willing to give me a pointer as to where I might locate the driver for the units front USB devices..
It's okay I have fixed it... It DOES NOT install from the supplied Acer Software (Catalyst supplied by AMD) at all !!! It doesn't even see the device in the device list in Catalyst... I found it in some HP drivers and installed it from there. Being an ex application packager helped me here... but other people may strugle with this one..
I just purchased the XC-105 and it came with windows 8 installed , but I am finding that the 3.0 usb ports are not working. I do not see in the device listing a 3.0 root hub. Would all thos above steps also be for the problem I am experiencing?
Please any help would be appreciated. Aslo nice work Paul
