Default Error opening devices after save

I'm having an issue where Reaper kinda "forgets" my Focusrite ASIO after I save a project with a new name or enter the preferences menu, and pops up with a window:

"Error opening devices

There was an issue opening the audio hardware:

Error initializing ASIO device"

If I close Reaper and reopen, everything works fine until I open the preferences or save again.

I use a laptop and a desktop both running windows 7 and switch out the Scarlett 2i4 depending on if I'm in my studio or mobile and this only ever happens on the laptop. I've reinstalled the drivers and no change.

Anyone have an idea how to solve this?

Could well have to do with switching between different USB ports. Do you always use the same port on your laptop? Also, I had some serious issues with focusrite drivers on an earlier version of their interfaces - might be worth double checking that you have the very latest version of the driver installed.

Thanks for the response! Drivers are definitely up to date, that was the first thing I tried.

I'm connecting via a hub when I'm using the laptop so maybe that's what's causing it. I'll give it a shot just going straight into the onboard USB ports and see if that helps.

Tried different USB ports today and without the hub and still getting the same issue unfortunately.

If anyone has any other suggestions they'd be welcome, thanks!
