    Since I've installed the latest beta for Windows 7, every 10-15 minutes I'll get that disconnect sound (like your unplugging a USB device) and then it will make the reconnect sound shortly after.

    Any idea on how to trouble shoot this? Start unplugging devices and seeing when the noise goes away? :coolugh:

    I'm using the same build and I don't have the problem :dunno: I have nothing plugged into USB constantly but my KB & mouse... do you have anything constantly connected via USB that isn't either of those two? Motherboard drivers installed? Check Device Manager and see if any drivers are fucked (yellow !)

    Start with chipset and then move to sound drivers. Is the sound on-board?

    How do you determine that?

    I've got USB mouse, keyboard (also works as a hub), monitor (as a hub) and that's it.
    No "yellow !'s" either... :)

    The sound is onboard but I've never had that problem before with any OS.

    First look in you device manager and see if you have any unknown devices or devices that dont have drivers installed. They will have a little yellow icon.

    Even if every device has a driver they may be vista drivers or some other unknown type. Go to the website of your computer or motherboard manufacturer and see if they have any Win7 drivers. I know Intel and Gigabyte have Win7 drivers for most of their recent boards.

    Theres a reason Win 7 is a pre-release OS, some things just arent going to work properly. You will probably just gave to deal with it until the final version is released.

    Yeah, I have 1 unknown device on my Win7 machine that I cant find any drivers for even though Intel has released Win7 drivers for my board.
