RE: How To Stop "Ker-plunk ker-plunk" USB sound from Device Manager?
An update - I should have taken 10 extra minutes to troubleshoot a little more.
The connect/disconnect sound is coming from a Wireless USB adapter. I get
the sound whether it's in the USB hub, or plugged directly into the PC. I
don't believe it's the device, since it's been plugged into this PC for
several months, and it's never been used on the older XP PC that's having a
similar problem. So, any ideas what may be causing the same DM issue on two
