Basestations disappear 30s after restarting Steam VR

Please help, before I completely loose my **bleep** with my vive. 

 

Was working recently on this computer. 

However from today. 

I start SteamVR - all looks good 5 green light. 

After 30s both base stations light go out. Base station not connected... 

 

If you want more details when playing around, sometimes the base stations stay on. 

But in that case when i launch something, theres no tracking. After 30s they go off. 

 

I have borrowed another vive and its exactly the same. Something must have change on the computer. 

-i've disabled power management

-yes, if turned it all off and on again. 

 

I have a demo coming up. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Finally, I found the problem and solution.
Solution: Use a different USB port!

No idea why, the other port works for most applications. Lenovo Y910.
