By Camilla Mo in Driver Error

If you are having problem with Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller on Windows 10, you may not use the USB 3.0 ports properly. To fix the problem, use the solutions below.

Before you get started, ensure that you can use the mouse or touchpad. If you are using a USB mouse and it stops working due to this driver issue, you can plug it into the USB 2.0 port.

Solution 1: Update the Driver via Device Manager

Follow steps below:

1) On your keyboard, press Win+R (Windows logo key and R key) at the same time to invoke the run box. 

2) Type devmgmt.msc and tap the OK button.

3) In Device Manager, right-click on the Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller and select Update Driver Software…

4. Select Search automatically for updated driver software.

 

Solution 2: Uninstall then reinstall the driver

Uninstall the driver and reboot your PC, then Windows will reinstall the driver automatically.

Follow steps below:

1) Open Device Manager again.

2) Right-click on the Renesas USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller and select Uninstall.

3) Click OK to confirm the uninstall.

4) Reboot your computer. Then Windows will reload the driver automatically.

 

Solution 3: Download the chipset drivers from the manufacturer’s website

To fix the problem, you can try downloading the Renesas USB 3.0 driver manually. You can visit the PC or the motherboard manufacturer’s website and download the chipset drivers. To download the correct drivers, you need to know the PC model or the motherboard model, and the version of Windows 10 (see How to Get Operating System Version).

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All)
