Can someone help me find the right driver for my motherboard USB host controller? I have a HP xw8600 workstation running Windows 7 x64, the problem is that windows is using a generic driver, so every time I connect a USB device, it tells me that "One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned" I've tried to uninstall and re-install the generic driver, however it did not work, I've also tried to download from HP, but no drivers available. Not sure how can I find the proper driver now. Any ideas?
