Windows 7: Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host controller failed on Dell laptop

04 Aug 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1
Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host controller failed on Dell laptop

I had tried to download it from the manufacturer (Dell) But it keeps failing. I get an error stating that it cannot start (code 10). I have 1 USB port on the left and 3 USB ports on the right. Only 1 works on the right, the one on the left still works.

It started after I had shut it down for the day. When I restarted the laptop, it stopped working. I usually leave the laptop running.
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I am attaching the text from Piriform Speccy.

Theme Changer?

Hi, thanks for replying.

The Theme Changer comes with Windows. I downloaded a few themes from Microsoft.
It's under Personalization when you right-click on the desktop.

Hope this helps, and thanks again.
