I have everything working on this used Latitude E6330 laptop purchased recently from Dell Financial. Well almost!
I had a working USB 3.0 controller when I installed a purchased on eBay Reinstallation DVD Windows 7 Professional SP1 32-bit dated 2011 P/N M1T3F but I had several issues that lead me to install from an Reinstallation Image on the Support Page for the E6330 using FNNGH_4D7C4A00_W7SP1PRO32_ENG.iso which is a Reinstallation DVD Windows 7 SP1 32-bit but updated to a later date. The E6330 was not released until 2012 but the Installation media lacks any E6330 specific drivers!
The BIOS has been updated to A17 for the Intel i5 running in 4GB in 32-Bit mode.
Everything goes great and I get everything installed and Windows Updated so the are no more updates and whenever I try to install the USB 3.0 Hub Controller Chipset_Driver_THK45_WN_22.214.171.124_A05.EXE either immediately after installation or later after all the Windows Updates have been done the System still panics with a BSD with a message about turning RAM caching or shadowing off in the BIOS.
Well, first things first, there is no option to turn this feature on/off directly in the BIOS.
It is my assertion that the Chipset_Driver_THK45_WN_126.96.36.199_A05.EXE is seriously faulty!in this configuration! Is there some other way I can load the Dell USB 3.0 Hub Controller driver besides this executable? Just download the device driver without the Install program?
I mean I have a totally operational system minus any USB device support. Pretty *** useless.
Any help would be much appreciated.
p.s. The Latitude E6330 is outside of support by Dell.
