Random USB Detection

February 28, 2009 at 03:11:10
Specs: Windows Vista, Intel E8400, 8GB DDR2
The problem: at random intervals the usb devices are re-detected. The system freezes for 5-10secs and i hear a usb disconnection followed by a usb detection sound.
No specifc time intervals between the problem.
I have always connected to the usb a mouse and a printer on standby

The problem started 2-3 weeks ago.
I suspect that it might happened following a vista update.

Any advice?

Check in device manager to see if you have some of the usb ports set to shut down to save power. Does this happen with every usb port ?

All usbs shut down to save power are not ticked. Cant see if this happens with every device but i only hear 1 disconnect/connect sound so seems to happen with just 1 usb.
