How to get USB 3.0 working on my PC?

I have an Acer AM3470--EB30P desktop computer :

This pc has USB 3.0 built into the motherboard. I bought a USB 3.0 flash drive, plugged it in, and it turns out my pc won't detect anything plugged into USB 3.0. Im sorry I tried to find my exact motherboard online but I couldnt find it. Hopefully you dont need this. I went to investigate my problem in Device Manager and this is what I saw: http://i47.tinypic.com/fwuetl.jpg

Not sure if I need to download USB 3.0 drivers or what.

    I tried that and it said Windows was unable to install your USB controller. Says no driver found.
