    Can you try to unplug the GPS device and reboot the machine and see whether
    that happens again. You can also try to remove the USB devices from Control
    Panel->System->Device Manager and see whether that will fix it. Did you
    install any software or drivers recently? You may try to update the driver
    of your USB devices before you reconnect it and see whether that will make
    it better.
