I'm dealing with a computer that keeps making the hardware connect & disconnect sounds for no apparent reason. Unfortunately it happens so quickly, I cannot see anything happen in Device Manager. Event Viewer is useless as it doesn't log hardware connects, disconnects, or removals. If I can figure out the component doing it, then I can replace it. Manufacturer's service dept hasn't been able to identify the issue.
The system is running Windows 7, but had the same trouble with Windows Vista. BIOS updates & driver updates haven't resolved the problem either.
So, is there something out there that can log all hardware events, especially connect & disconnect events so I can get at least a PCI or USB vendor ID? Is it something that can be set up with Windows or is there a 3rd party app that can do this?
