    Sorry, the USB3 mainboard circuit  and controller seems to have been fried. Open DeviceManager. Click on USB controllers. Do you see any red warnings or missing USB3 entries? Jack E/NJ

    Hi Jack!    
    Thanks for helping me! 
    thats the thing, in the  DeviceManager the USB controllers seem to all working fine but when i try to use the USB ports on that side they dont start up or anything.

    Many thanks!

    >>>are you able to help me locate it?>>>

    Sorry. No. Not at that level of detail. You could try to remove it with a heat gun to see if there are any ids on the backside or on the mainboard itself. If none, you could take a closeup JPG and see if a components distributor like DigiKey could ID it for you. Jack E/NJ

    Any computer technician who's good enough to be comfortable replacing surface mount parts will know what size voltage regulator is needed for the USB 3.0 specification. That's what you need in this instance, though I can't remember right off hand if it's the 900mA power budget size or the 2100mA high power charging size. I suspect the former...
