Hi there. I have a USB3-E1000 Ethernet adapter and a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro running Windows 8.1. This device was working fine until I reset my computer after installing a 500 GB SSD. I did a clean install of Windows and the most recent USB3-E1000 drivers, but when I plug the device in I get a “USB Device not recognized. The USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it. Try reconnecting the device. If Windows still does not recognize it, your device may not be working properly.”
In device Manager, it displays under Universal Serial Bus controllers as:
Unknown USB Device (Link in Compliance Mode)
I’ve tried selecting “Uninstall device” from Device Manager to no avail. I’d like to run “Update driver” and manually select the driver, but I don’t know where your installer saves the drivers.
