I tried hooking up an external laptop harddrive to my computer yesterday. keep in mind, this harddrive I think is screwed. I wanted to try and see if I could access it though. My computer didn't recognize anything when I hooked it up to my usb port. I then went to "add hardware" and for some odd reason I added a MTP device. Not sure what I was doing. I had no problems with my computer yesterday.

Anyways, I start up my computer today, and in the bottom corner it says "! Found new hardware - MTP device". It stays there and wont allow me to stop it. This is with nothing hooked up to my computer either.

Whats wrong, and how do I get this fixed?
