I think I have the same problem on Win 10. At boot it says "A USB device has malfunctioned".
It doesn't respond to keypresses and when I try to run the GUI shows 'disconnected' in the titlebar. Unplugging and replugging fixes the issue, then it will continue working through sleep and resume, but break again next reboot.
Hardware is an old but stable AMD motherboard/CPU with USB 2.0.

Is there anything else that will help you debug? Anything from system event log for example?
