What do you have plugged into the USB ports?
Nothing. Can you believe that? I have nothing connected to my USB port and I get that error.
Nothing? What about keyboard and mouse? Or are you referring to only a specific port?
Regardless, it sounds like something has failed on the board and you may have to have it replaced. Call Intel Customer Support if you want to discuss this...

I regret for the inconvenience. As a workaround I suggest you to get into the BIOS and reset it as default with F9. Then, update the Chipset and Management Engine drivers.
Chipset v 10.1.1.18
Management Engine v.188.8.131.523
