Ok i encountered a problem recently that is really annoying. When i plug in anything to the usb ports on my pc it makes a noise. For some reason that noise is occurring like every 5 minutes and the pc freezes for the duration of the sound. I do not plug in anything. Could it be like a glitch or one of my usbs is broken. I have my mouse,keyboard,headset,and wireless adapter plugged in.
Could be a bad usb port. You can also check windows device manager for conflicts. I recently sent in a board for a bad dvi port; the replacement board works fine, but the shipping cost me $10. You'll have to decide how important it it for you and request an rma if you want a replacement.
