Main problem: (Micro)disconnections in USB of eGPU.   This sometimes cause windows to crash.

Attempts to solve:
1-I read in internet, to DISABLE in: Power settings>change advanced....> USB setting> Disabled

2-Also, I unchecked [disable to save power] all USB related stuff in Device Manager

3-In devices and printers window, did same thing in solution 2. All USB related stuff: Properties>power...>uncheck disable to save power

Conclusion: Non of those solved.

Notes:
My device [spectre x360 15 bl1xx] refuses to install firmware of eGPU in Aorus website
Error message: (0x10a 266 error while getting the PD firmware version)
Seems only firmware of laptop that can be installed

Important note!!!!!:  I haven't seen this in internet
problem seems to subside if I open any game :/      weird

This does not mean I'm ok with it, frequent disconnection of mouse and headphone can sometime kill windows. HELP please :)))

I have same issue...   but I'm using MBP 13" late 2016.

I noticed whenever I'm using the usb at the back of Auros Gaming Box it keep disconnecting on/off tried looking at same solution as per suggested above with no luck.

I given up on this for now and stick using usb-c to usb 3.0 hub for directly to the my MBP.

Let me know if you managed to resolve this issue ty.

The issue seems it is related with power. (not sure though).

 

I kept the device along with the eGPU turned on. (didn't close notebook or disconnect eGPU for a while). The USBs are fine.

I guess solution would be: After connecting eGPU, keep computer idle [more than 10 mins] for a while until electricity stabilizes [supposedly], then USBs will be fine.

Tell me if it works for you 🙂 (keep in mind that problem identification is based on assumptions, and solution mentioned worked like charm [only for me])

note: rebooting/sleeping/closing notebook will reset problem and you have to repeat solution process, (I should call it duct tape solution, not a real solution)

We still need a real solution x_x
