Universal Serial Bus Contoller

Hey everyone

As some of you know I recently built my first computer and have limited experience with everything. I just noticed I have been getting this error and cannot find a fix.

The device for Universal Serial Bus (usb) controller is not intalled. Install the latest driver for the device.

I went to the Intel website to try and find a fix but got confussed becasue am not sure what my chipset is? I intalled one program but it didn't fix the problem.

My system is Windows 7 64 mobo Gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3, 8 ram and a gigabyte gtx 550 Ti graphics card.

No worries, help is here :)

According to GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (rev. 1.0), your motherboard uses the Intel Z68 Express chipset.

More details about this chipset as provided by Intel here: IntelĀ® Z68 Express Chipset

Direct link to the correct .INF chipset driver files here:

If you still have no USB device controller after this, see if you can rightclick the missing device in Device Manager and let Windows find the correct files on its own.
