Hello @CyborgH


I can only think of a couple of reasons why it stops working after every few minutes.


Either the driver is corrupted or clashing in the Device Manager.

In such case, delete the USB device in Device Manager and reboot.

You can deleted the hidden drivers under Universal Serial bus Controllers, and also the ones not hidden. They will reinstall on reboot.


You have a stuck key on the keyboard. You would have to determine what key it is. For example an Fn key or PrtScrn key.


Let me know what you find or if you need further explanation.
