Hi,

 

I have a Dell Inspiron desktop computer running Windows 7, 64-bit.  I can't figure out why I keep hearing the USB removal beep tone.  I know I can disable it, but I would rather figure out what's causing it and fix it...

 

I am running a Netgear Wireless Adapter for my internet as the room where my computer is in does not have any way to go wired...  I went through all of the devices and none of them appear to have an outdated driver...

 

Any other ideas on what could be happening?

 

 

Thanks,

Scott

Type in device manager in your start search bar.  Open it up and look for any yellow question marks.  If there is any screenshot it for us.

I opened everything and there are no yellow question marks.

Do you have a card reader on the front of your machine?  Try unplugging every single usb for a minute and see if it does the same thing.  Also have you restarted it recently?

I have 2 USB inputs on the front of the machine.  1 is the Wifi Adapter and it feels somewhat loose from side to side.  I wonder if the cleaning lady bumped it with the vacuum.. It's still straight in though... The other USB is my camera cable.. I transfer photos daily from my camera to this computer for business so I leave the USB cable plugged in and then attach the camera when I'm ready to transfer.

Ok unplug them both and see if it continues to make that noise.  If one is really wiggly that normally a bad sign try switching the two. Put the wireless adapter in the camera cords spot.

I swapped them and it did it again... I wonder if there's an issue with the adapter since it's wiggles.. perhaps there's a short in it?

Unplug the adapter and leave just the cord. If it still beeps then its something else.  Did you ever unplug them both?
