Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

That's why I said it seemed hardware could be ruled out, and maybe the port was just being flaky.

Windows 10 Pro. EFI boot partition, full EFI boot

The automatic updates should have only been for security related issues. No drivers should have been automatically updated. There is something else going on here I suspect, but I can't tell you what. I suspect a reinstall might take care of it, and after the reinstall you must make sure you are up to date on security updates.
