Default Win XP Pro keeps alerting usb device

Hi,

I'm using Windows XP Pro. All latest patches installed.

Every few minutes, my mouse would lock up and I would get
the sound alert, the one as if you would plug in a USB device and unplug it.

it's annoying since I don't have any device connected. is there some option to reset or fix this problem?

thanks!

Hi,

yes, I have a usb mouse but that's connected all the time.

I've recently been using a usb to sdhc card reader lately that I plug in and remove.

Win XP is scanning and thinking the device is there when it's not.

I went into the device manager and found some usb devices that had
the ! next to it so I disable those. will see if that helps.

This is typical syndrome for a mouse with faulty cable. Try using another mouse.

that's interesting. never thought it would be the mouse.

I'll give it a try later. don't have a spare mouse at the moment.

thanks for the tip!

I had a similar problem, not as often though, just a few times a week. I would also get messages about a USB port could perform faster. It turned out to be an internal card reader.
