Solved Why is my computer making the unplugged/plug in USB noise?

Specs: Windows 7
I have an acer aspire 5733-6696, and my computer started making the USB noise, like when you plug it in or take it out. This started today.I have nothing hooked up to the USB, I don't use a mouse. I have a camera and mic right in my laptop. I've restarted my computer, I've went into the Device Manager and disabled my Sound and Video Game Controllers, and rebooted my computer, and went back and enabled it and rebooted it again. Nothing is open. I had my computer plugged into the printer earlier for quite a while, but It didn't start until way later. I ran a security test and nothing came up as bad, and it's just really annoying and I want to get rid of it, please help!!

✔ Best Answer
The only thing that can cause that is a poor connection to a USB port or USB device.

Have you, or is it possible someone else who had access to this computer...
- dropped it, or dropped anything on it, or otherwise exposed it to a physical jolt ?
- spilled liquid on it, or sprayed it with liquid, or exposed it to liquid such as rain ?

Since the USB ports last worked properly all the time, has there been a power failure event that happened while the AC adapter was plugged in ?

Those things are the most frequent reasons something inside the laptop has been damaged.

If you have an external hub plugged into a USB port, broken wires inside it's cord could cause your problem.

A physically damaged built in USB port could cause your problem.

Your touchpad, and your memory card reader if you have a built in one are often both connected to a USB header inside the case - a damaged or loose connection to that header could cause your problem. (The touchpad may be connected to a PS/2 header on older models).

A physically damaged memory card reader slot could cause your problem.
