Possibly not helpful, but --

I've had this happen when using the front-panel USB ports on a couple
of different towers.  It does not happen on the same machines using
the USB ports in the back, leading me to believe that there's a
physical problem with the front-panel connections; induction from the
USB to reset wires, or some such.
