So here is the problem:
My computer plays the sound you hear when you plug in a new USB device. That dn-dun.
Then it locks up for about half a second, then for about 2 seconds it unfreezes, then locks up again for a half second. Then it runs smoothly.
During this time, whatever keystroke I'm pressing will repeat itself. If I'm typing an email and I type the word elephant but it does this halfway through it will input the word eleppppp (usually about 5 letters). However if I'm playing a video game and am holding down W to go forward, I will continue to go forward until I press W again. Which is pretty handy for games without auto run.
Frequency of issue:
It happens about once an hour.
I'm using Windows 7 64 bit
What I've done so far:
I've unplugged all unnecessary USB devices. I then moved my mouse and keyboard to various USB drives to see if that would fix it.
I updated my drivers for my video card.
Since I don't think it's an external device, that's why I posted it here but I'm not certain if internal devices make that dn-dun sound.
Why it makes me sad:
It's sort of a nuisance which isn't so bad. But I just mined out 2 veins of diamonds in minecraft. It was my first discovery of diamonds. Then my computer locked up and I got stuck running forward and before I regained control I ran into lava, died, and it burned my diamonds.
Thank you for your time.
