Whilst I have been using Linux and Manjaro for a couple of years now, I am by no means a 'power user', hence the reason I'm posting in the 'newbie corner'.
I recently started using a new laptop (ASUS F555YI-XO049T) to replace my old ThinkPad. I have Manjaro working almost perfectly aside from issues detecting USB devices.
I have an external USB HDD which I have only had working on one occasion via the laptops USB 2.0 port. Currently it will not mount on any USB port, though it does spin up and the LED indicator lights up. It is not detected with lsusb. I same goes for a USB flash drive. This has worked on one of the USB 3.0 ports on one occasion, currently not working. I also just used my printer to print one page, which worked. I turned off the printer, and upon turning it back on, the system will not find it.
Output of lsusb with a printer, a flash drive and a USB HDD plugged in:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0438:7900 Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:57b5 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0438:7900 Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.

This was never an issue on the ThinkPad, therefore I am wondering if this is a issue with my new machine, or a bug/configuration issue.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
