DM6 kit midi input randomly stops

Hey! I'm back with another problem with my DM6 kit. Before I had a problem with not getting any midi input at all, I fixed that but now I have another problem, the midi input randomly stops when playing. This started after reinstalling my Windows, just like my last problem where I didn't get any input at all, that started after reinstalling Windows. However, I fixed that problem by uninstalling the USB 3.0 drivers. I actually had this problem before reinstalling Windows but didn't happen frequently. Now after playing for 1-5 minutes, my DAW just stops getting any input. I tried it with MIDI-OX as well and the input stopped after a few minutes there as well, so isn't a DAW issue. I tried connecting the kit to my moms laptop running Windows 10 and started up MIDI-OX and had that running when I was practicing and input never stopped. Probably practiced for 20-30 minutes and no issues. I guess this is some USB issue but I don't know what that issue is or how to fix it. This is an exclusive issue with the DM6 kit. This doesn't happen when using my USB-powered midi keyboard, neither does it happen with any other USB device connected to my computer. Also, after the midi input stops, the device "e-drum" is still visible in Device Manager (yes I clicked "Scan for hardware changes" on it and still was there). I am running Windows 7. Anyone familiar with this issue or knows any fix?
