Hello, I was here months ago being helped and was able to have most of the problems solved! However, I gave up on trying to get my USB ports to work... But now I need to get them working so I can hook some things up.  I have a desktop with Windows 7, can someone help me out?

If you have issues with your USB port, it is port related, driver related or device related.

 

Try updating your driver software that are not functioning(yellow exclamation marked),then restart.

Drivers are located here: http://www.gigabyte....spx?pid=4153#dl

 

Start with Chipset and USB 3.0 drivers.

 

Make sure you get them for the right OS, Windows 7 32 or 64 bit.

SM bus controller means for chipset driver, as ztruker suggested to go the site and download the chipset driver and USB driver.
