I am of the opinion that it is not a software problem but a problem in how you have connected your USB components.
Have a look at the following link from Michael Brown at X-ForcePC. This company is the recommended PC supplier in the USA by Laminar Research. Pay attention to what is being said about the USB hubs and not what he is connecting to the hubs.
The link is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqwIhuxe95U
I have no connection with Michael or X-ForcePC or Laminar Research.
Hope this helps.
