Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone knew how to help me with an issue. My USB ports are flashing on and off non-stop at random (sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't). I noticed this due to the sound Vista makes that alerts you a USB device was recognized, it will sound the alert several times in succession from 3-4 to 6 times in a row. I used to think it was my motherboard, but I have bought a new motherboard last week and the problem persists.
Does anyone have a slight idea what could cause this symptom?
no faulty wires, no shorts. I've built two computers with the same issues now. The problem seems to happen on pretty much all USB ports.
I also have a problem with my mouse doing this, and I once solved the problem by plugging the USB key on to my G15keyboard's USB ports. But now I'm not using that keyboard anymore. The funny thing is that I once had the same problem with a PS2 mouse that I tried for a week.
