Device failed to connect

When I start up windows, I hear the sound of device failed to connect.

No error message shows on the screen.

How can I know which device is causing problem?

Thanks for your help

Hi pieren,

You may try a 'Clean Boot'; it is likely to help you in isolating the culprit. Please refer to the following 'web article': How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8

If you are using a notebook; and an external mouse is also connected, unplug it and check for the 'sound again'. While researching, I came across a similar situation in another thread where unplugging an external mouse fixed the issue. You may also give it a shot, if applicable.

Hope this helps.

No, I am not using a netbook, so I don't think that the mouse is the problem.

You can type event viewer, in search, and see what error was happening at the time involved.

I have posted the event viewer log in another thread (Many errors in event viewer).

I have read it, but I don't understand which is the problem.

Thanks. Have you at some point connected a USB device of any kind?
Let's verify it is the Failed to Connect sound. Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Sounds and click the Sounds tab.
In the drop-down menu, as shown, select None/Apply. Reboot and see if the sound is gone.
