This question already has an answer here:
On my PC, Windows 8 keeps playing the Device Connect sound (
Windows Hardware Insert.wav) - a slightly discordant sequence of 3 notes. This is at least every 1-2 minutes, but can be up to every ten seconds.
This happens even after I've unplugged everything.
There's nothing in the Event Viewer about this, and there are no highlighted devices in the Device Manager. What can I do to figure out what the problem is?
(I'm hoping there's some information I can get out of Windows. I don't particularly want to go through some trial-and-error process of disabling/uninstalling devices, or similar.)
