If it is a laptop, I have had several laptops (one running linux and
one running windows) where some of the USB hardware died after 3-5
years. I suspect that the cooling design for the usb devices was not
great and they cooked. I did start using an extra laptop cooling fan
and that seemed to help the disconnects a small amount.
It also could be devices on the usb that are having issues and/or
causing it. Typically on most desktops and laptop there are at
2 actual usb controllers that all of the ports are connected to, so
one usb controller has issues it can cause random issues on more than
one external port.
It's a desktop, but fairly old (2014). I haven't seen any other USB
errors that I'm aware of.
Might be time to look at a new mobo in any case.
