Error sound with nothing happening
I get an error sound like "da dum" every few seconds, unpredictably, but reliably. I dont get any warnings or visual confirmation of any kind, nothing freezes or changes. I checked event logs but didnt find anything, I have no idea what is causing windows to make the sound, nor do I know exactly when it started. has anyone had a similar problem, or have any ideas?
Oh yea, when i view device manager, it constantly refreshes, and there is one "other devices" but i cant figure out what it is, and the sound continues when it is disabled. previous install of win 7 didnt have this problem.
Thanks in advance

Anybody found a cause / fix for this yet? I'm having the exact same symptoms and for the life of me cannot figure out what the cause is.
Just to elaborate a little, the "da dum" is the same notification sound that you receive whenever you unplug a USB device.
My gut says that it may be a driver issue with some embedded hardware, for example my fingerprint reader or the built in webcam - so Windows is somehow notifying me that one of these devices is being "plugged in and unplugged" all the time, if you know what I mean..... But I still haven't figured out a way to confirm this.
I'm running Windows 7 on my HP Pavilion tx 2500 tablet and this is the first issue I have had. Well, more of an annoyance than an issue.
Thanks in advance for any input.
