usb 3.0 repeated disconnect issue

Level 2

this issue started after 1 session of stable connection using usb 3.0 with the same cable, and same port. However, after taking a break and coming back later, my pc refuses to stay connected to the quest when using 3.0 ports. My usb cable (which has a light to indicate connection) blinks out frequently, and the link rarely ever lasts til a few seconds after connecting to occulus link. However, when using the exact same usb cable with one of my 2.0 ports, the connection is stable, and the light is solid. Now obviously, i would like to be able to use 3.0 so i can get the vastly improved speeds, but im currently at a loss of what to do. I have restarted my pc, my quest, and tried updating the drivers but didn't get anywhere.
