Windows 7: "Device Failed to Connect" sound notification

23 Jul 2013   #11

Win7 H.Prem. 32bit+SP1

I am having the same problem. I have NO errors showing in Device Manager. I have NO unknown start-up programs.
The only permantly working USB device connected is a wireless mouse.
I have explored Event Viewer without finding anything.
Will try with 'Sounds' set to default & post back if it changes.

Nothing changed! Could this have anything to do with it?

You didn't mentioned the exactly steps. I opened Even Viewer but in which option I have to go to get results ?
The page of link you posted says, "Click an event log in the left pane." But I didn't find that. and how to give you result ? in which format ?
