Randomly hearing the USB disconnect sound?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
What is up with that?
I hear the sound but nothing seems to be disconnecting from my usb devices, this happens at random and its only the disconnect sound...
USB power saving is off in the Power options

I have the following devices connected:
USB mouse
USB keyboard
USB DVD drive
USB Wireless Gaming Receiver and Plug and Charge kit for 360 controller
Flash drive
all of them work fine after the sound

I was thinking it may be a hard drive but no those are still accessible...
drivers are up to date
The motherboard is Asus p8z68

Can you disconnect the USB Wireless Gaming Receiver and Plug and Charge kit for 360 controller for a while to see if the sound still happens? I have a feeling that it's the culprit, but I'm not basing this off any experience. It's just that among those devices, it's the only one I am able to suspect.

Ah man, I always hate when people have this issue. The best way to diagnose it is to unplug everything but the absolute necessities (mouse and keyboard). If the beeping stops, add one by one until you find what the culprit is. If it beeps with the mouse and keyboard, find which one it is.

Once you find the culprit, the final test is you take it to another motherboard and plug it in and test. If it disconnects, there's your answer. If it doesn't, it's your motherboard / one of the ports.

Basically, you got a lot of diagnosing to do tongue.gif

Do you still have the USB 3.0 ports enabled? I don't know if disabling them will help, but I recommend trying it.

I'll try, I don't think the receiver is a genuine Microsoft product since it does not work with the default receiver drivers, I had to give it a 360 pad driver and it works just fine

Figured as much, this will be annoying since it happens once an hour or two.

I have the ports enabled, even the front case ports work with the mobo header.
Nothing is connected to any usb 3.0 ports though, I used them just for testing.
They all work after the sound.

I don't know if any of this matters, but disconnect it anyway and then wait to see if this sound still happens. I realize that you'll have to wait like an hour or 2, but I don't think we have a choice.

But I was asking neonraver. That's why his message is quoted in that post. wink.gif

However, I do have one question: do you hear the sound twice? I mean, for example:

I'll describe the "Device Connect" sound as a "Down-Up" sound, and the "Device Disconnect" sound as an "Up-Down" sound. Or, even "Doo-dee", and "dee-doo".

My guess would be the xbox controller charger, the same thing happens to me with my phone charger.

This.

I think the reason why it's doing it is because when a battery is fully charged and still connected to a battery charger, the charger will still "check" the battery on a regular basis. Although, I think it's not really checking the battery but instead I think it's because batteries just naturally lose their charge over time even when not being used.

Only the disconnect sound once. "Up-Down" as you described.
I hear this sound every hour or two, never the device connected sound, unless I myself connect a device of course.
