Yes. Microsoft does not have a native driver for USB3.0 for Windows 7, so the port will not function as USB3.0 unless you can find and install a 3rd party driver for that port.

You should check the laptop support site for a USB 3.0 driver, sometime they have special drivers for them.

There are plenty of USB3 drivers as far as I can see.
