I seem to be having a problem, for a few weeks I have been hearing the random sound of connecting and disconnecting of a USB device. nothing is shown in my tool bar and in device manager I can not see anything at all. I have no power saving options, I did a system restore which didn't fix the problem. When the sound is made my mouse and keyboard and anything else that is USB connected works fine. I have disabled my wireless card on my PC as I don't use it and I still now and then hear the wonderful sound of something being disconnected. Now I have no idea what so ever on what it could be.

So I am asking here if anyone has had this problem and what they did to resolve it, or if anyone can give me a hand on removing this terrible plague :( Also my computer is running Windows 7


P.S. At the moment I am watching a video on twitch and it is playing the sound alot...
