Windows 7: USB 3.0 ports not working on Gateway SX2370

USB 3.0 ports not working on Gateway SX2370

USB 3.0 ports not working BUT 2.0 ports work ok on Gateway SX2370. Am running Win 7 -64 bit Home Premium. Do not have orig install or repair disks. Bought used with jury-rigged hard-drive and 32 bit operating system. Installed win 7 -64 on new hard-drive and updated to latest BIOS. USB is enabled on BIOS. When I run Windows Device Manager for the USB controllers, my AMD PCI to USB Open Host Controller Device status reads: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". Also, OTHER DEVICES has no drivers for the Ethernet Controller, USB Controller, and Unknown Device and when I attempt a driver update, it cannot find drivers on my machine or on the internet. GATEWAY does not have any downloadable drivers on their current website when I look up this particular machine on their official website. I DO, however, have a similar machine with the same motherboard, video card, and OS that works, at my disposal. Any suggestions as to where to start, short of making it my new back-porch footrest, would be appreciated. Thanks

Also ran AMD driver Autodetect and it says I have the latest drivers installed for the graphics hardware : 0x1002 - 0x964A PCIE

I think you may need the AMD USB 3.0 host controller driver ...

ALL downloaded and installed, 3.0 ports working now, will test later for 3.0 speed, but hardware config now shows 3.0 controllers instead of unknown hardware. I can now make a system restore disk and system image disks THANK YOU so much ... from a humble newbie to this forum.
