Can't connect Note 10 to USB 3.0 ports

HP Notebook - 15-da0042tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I'm having an issue connecting my note 10 to my windows 10 PC.


It works fine on my USB 2.0 port but it doesn't work on my USB 3.0 ports, when I plug it in I get the error "The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it".


I've rebooted a few times, I couldn't find the USB 3.0 drivers on the HP site.


I've got it working on my USB 2.0 port, which is a relief, but I'd like to get it working on my USB 3.0 ports.


When my sister plugs in her S9 into the USB 3.0 ports it works fine, so I'm not sure where the problem lies.


Thank you.

BIOS default:
