Philipp,
I have some suggestions:

1- Look around for a patch of multilinx on Xilinx website. Although it
solved my problem but many of the usb devices (including my mouse)
stopped functioning after applying this patch.

2- Try changing the PC-connectivity of multilinx (from USB to serial).


Hope this helps.
