Something on my laptop is preventing restoring

    I am able to backup my iPhone (it finishes with no errors) on my ASUS U50F laptop, but when I try to restore, I get an error that it cannot restore because the backup session failed. I am running the latest iOS and itunes version, and I've reinstalled itunes multiple times.

    If I use my wife's DELL laptop, I am able to backup/restore with no issues.

    What could be causing this?

    Could be anything.
    Software issues on that particular laptop, bad USB ports or USB wire.
    But sounds to me more like a corrupt backup file you're trying to restore from on that computer.
