    Disconnected device sound keeps happening every few seconds


    This is literally driving me to insanity.

    I'm just using the pc normally and i keep hearing the sound that you hear when you disconnect a usb device.

    It happens every few seconds. I opened up device manager, nothing abnormal there, but when ever i hear the disconnected device sound, the device manager refreshes the list.

    I noticed also the task bar of open windows flash when it happens. I dunno why this is happening, it is driving me insane. Please help i need solutions to this problem, i don't know where to being to solve this problem.

    Just click the scroll down arrow and select "none" for the Hardware Remove sound.


    This is a work-around until you figure out what is causing it.


    Look in your "Reliability Monitor" also for problems that point to your circumstances.

    I did say it was a work-around until you figure out what is causing it.

    Press the Windows and "R" keys simultaneously, type "devmgmt.msc" into the "Run" box and click "OK". When Device Manager starts, click "View", "Show hidden devices" and see if there are any unknown devices or a device with a yellow exclamation point. If so, right-click it and disable it.

    This is all i found which seemed a bit off, but theres no exlamation point on the icons:



    But even then that device is disabled. Pretty sure it will automatically appear again if i remove and reboot too.

    Right-click the device and see if it has a power management option. If so, change it. Also, disabled devices usually have a red "X" on them.
