Recently built a computer (computer works great!)


I have to VNC into it today and for some reason a USB human interface device keeps unplugging/plugging and making the "hardware connect/disconnect" sounds in windows. (Which is annoying.) 


Obviously the correct way to fix it is to unplug the usb devices one by one and figure out which one it is. Unfortunately I can't do that until I go home today, and I have to do work on it (with sound) over VNC. 


Is there any way to disable a particular usb device without uninstalling drivers? 


I can't think what else it'd be. It's not my mouse, it's not my keyboard. (Which show up in specific sections of device manager.) It's not my gamepad (which shows up as it's own thing in device manager and is connected to a different port.) Perhaps I accidently plugged in an x-box controller? It's not anything specific in device manager, just "USB Input Device." In "USBLogView" it says it's "Port 1 Hub 3" It connects/disconnects randomly anywhere from every 2 minutes to every 8 minutes. 


Perhaps one of my USB connectors is loose (front panel connector perhaps?) But the thing connected to the front panel (gamepad) stays connected all the time.
