Why does Windows 7 64-bit keep telling me my super speed 7 port will work better if i use a 3.0 usb port? All of my usb ports are 3.0.

When i boot windows always shows a message telling me my USB device will work faster if I plug it into a 3.0 port.
Seems weird since all of my ports on my new dell notebook are 3.0.


Usually when this happens it is because the USB 3.0 xHCI drivers for Windows 7 are our of date.

What model Dell laptop do you have?

Hi Josh,

I have the Lattitude E5550.

Try installing these drivers to update the USB controller:
