    I have a new HP laptop dv7-6143cl qe. It has renesas 3.0 on two ports. It doesnt show up when you click start,programs,etc. It is in the device mgr and prog files though. My version is
    2.0.32.0. Which driver can I update to? I click on update driver in device mgr and it says it sthe most recent. But not according to this site. THanks

    I would try HP website for updated drivers...first.
    HP does often use proprietary software.
    Use Piriform's "Speccy" to find out motherboard manufacturer.
    http://www.piriform.com/download
    If no update, then you should be able to run the updates listed here...check chip numbers to be sure.

    Each chip supports two ports.

    Hope this helps.

    My usb 3.0 charges my cell phone fine...doing it now after reading your issue.
    Does it fail for 3.0 or 2.0 ports or both?

    Phone charging fine, all working well.

    Check your BIOS as well, I know some gigabyte boards have power over USB settings, or something similar.

    NEW 3.0.2.8.0.8 Firmware

    I tried sleep mode with this newer driver and tried charging some spare cell phones and it went OK.

    Did not try 3.0.2.7.

    3.0.2.8 works on my iphone4 - if its plugged in when i sleep the PC.


    plugging it in after, it does really slowly charge (like, 15% overnight) but the phone doesnt think its charging.


    i wonder if that tickbox to disable the power saving stuff is related when firmware flashing.

    I think you can put a check in that box after you flashed from whatever newer version that incorporates it. Have not tried it that way, as I did not understand the function, so left it stock... All phones are charged right now and no other appliance to test right now.

    Will try and post back.

    Also, I set comp. to sleep then plugged in.

    my 'dumb' nokia N95 recognises that its getting power/charging, however it too charges a lot slower.


    this is relevant, as its part of my motherboards features regarding this:

    So are you saying that the hardware and firmware 3028 don't work with the "ON/OFF Charge Driver Download" software.

    It smells proprietary.

    Your board has a proprietary red usb 3.0 pinout? From picture in link.

    What about keeping the 3028 firmware and reinstalling older Gbyte driver? Maybe cr*p idea? (just to link the "special" software with driver?)

    that whole on/off charge is so poorly documented... no i was using the onboard ports. i think this is a combination of apple being weird, and gigabyte not documenting shit right.

    +1 on that...:toast:

    I have that on my board, too.
    I installed the drivers, updated the bios, the rest of the stuff they recommended and get the same.
    Sometimes charges fast sometimes not.(my phones will quick charge, on the wall charger and auto charger, when off anyways in about 25 to 30 mins.)
    It charges perfectly when the PC is on. I have seen no real difference between the MB being off or on. It is the other modes that are wierd.
    You did notice all the little *notes on the page about due to, user's maybe, results vary, current may vary, etc.
    I don't think the bugs have totally been squashed and the linens ironed out.

    So, I'll just keep on using the wall charger.:)

    Goodluck there, Mussels!:)

    Does the PSU standard matter? Perhaps the variation is with how the PSU is constructed, and how the +5 volt works in sleep mode.

    Sounds like GByte should have a QVL list for PSU's that are compatible with these new features.

    If you enable ErP in the BIOS, then devices don't charge, it's got nothing to do with USB 3.0 or On/Off charge.

    There was no info in the driver package.
    I am still trying to find release notes for it.
    Someone or I will post them, as soon as, we can get the info.

    I installed the newer driver (Version 2.1.19.0), but have seen no changes on the face of it.
