    "USB-IF-xHCI USB Host Controller has a driver problem"


    My Digital Audio Player hasn't been working properly lately so I did some checking on my PC and noticed under devices the Windows 8 icon has a yellow exclamation mark.
    I checked for problems and "USB-IF-xHCI USB Host Contoller has a driver problem" came up.
    I clicked "fix it" but it couldn't.

    Does anyone know what I should do or who I should contact?

    I downloaded a Intel program that removed the host controller because it was out of date.
    I hope this won't come back to haunt me.
