Default Mbox 3 Flashing lights

Was just in the middle of doing some recording when my Mbox suddenly disconnected from the computer and appeared to be starting itself over. Of course I had to shut down Pro Tools because it became disconnected in the middle of the session.

The Mbox however kept flashing its lights in order like it was starting up only to shut off and do it again kind of like a boot loop.

Things I've tried:
Disconnecting Mbox and reconnecting
Changing USB Ports
Changing USB Cable
Uninstall Drivers, Restart, Re-Install Drivers. (1.1.4)

At this point I don't know anything else to do. When opening the Mbox control panel it says "Hardware not connected" and the Mbox continues its little light show.

Any help would be appreciated.

1) Try the Mbox 3 on a different PC/Mac if possible (will need to download drivers) in order to discern whether it's a hardware or software problem. If it doesn't work on another computer (with the correct drivers) then the problem lies with the Mbox3

2) If it's software - Try reinstalling Pro Tools?

3) If it's software - Check to download most recent drivers

4) If it's hardware - You could try 're-flashing' the firmware?
