intel USB 3.0 Driver

as the subject states, lm looking for an updated USB driver as l was told in another thread it could use updating as it showed up in bsod dumps. however lve not been able to find a higher version than
3.0.0.16 as lm wondering if my wireless issues are related to an issue within the drivers.

for reference, this is my motherboard: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-Z87-D3HP (rev. 1.x) (l use win7 x64)

since removing the older ram (touch wood) l havent had any further bsods yet, however l have updated the wireless network drivers, but lve been having issues finding usb 3.0 drivers, the ones on the gigabyte are higher in version than the ones on the intel site. in fact l downloaded them and let windows search them and it told me that the best driver was the one l already had.

so yes lve followed what was suggested tho lve been trying to find updated usb drivers with little luck, and according to the intel update utility everything is up to date.

l did notice that thread, but the weird thing is l believe the latest still worked better than the ones on the disk.

l guess the generic intel drivers might be worth contemplating, however which ones should l choose.

After bios updating, please do not forget to load BIOS fail-safe default setting and please also do not try to overclock your system at this moment.

2. Please make sure you use genuine version of Windows 7 and update to the latest. Make sure Windows Update to the latest.
3. Make sure you have install all the driver for your system. The USB 3.0 driver version 3.0.0.16 is the latest USB 3.0 driver.
If you still have any further question or suggestion about our products/service, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will try our best to help you resolve the problem ASAP.
not at home for a couple of days but will try updating the bios suggestion to the version suggested, hopefully it will be pretty painless using the @bios app from within windows. havent had good experiences flashing with thumb drivers in the past, but lm hoping the dual bios will help avoid such issues.

indeed, that said its been a few months and the bios update might be more recent.

however lm contemplating getting a new wireless adapter as well to rule out my current one as a problem.

just wondering which one of the two below would be better, the high gain one does kinda strike me as worth more contemplation:

TP-Link TL-WN722N Wireless-N150 High Gain USB Adapter - Ebuyer

TP-Link TL-WN821N Wireless-N300 USB Adapter - Ebuyer

Either one should do the job .. They are reasonably priced that is the main thing ....

was just looking at the bios page of my motherboard downloads section there doesnt seem to be a bios of version F14b, granted it might be on the @bios update server tho. but wanted to check just in case l used q-flash.. tho l am wondering if l should do the bios update in safe mode since virus protection etc will run in the background out of safe mode.

in fact from what lve googled it seems F7 is the highest bios.
