Windows 7: Unknown device connect at Windows 7 login/startup

Unknown device connect at Windows 7 login/startup

I am in the process of configuring a new HP Z820 workstation. This thing is a beast and absolutely love the power. Just recently I started getting a strange device connection sound playing at login/startup. Just after the windows start up chime I hear the second device connect sound.
I have nothing connected differently than I did a few days ago but all of a sudden this morning I now hear it. No USB HD's or flash drives connected.

I was just wondering if anyone knew of a way to figure out what Windows was connecting at login? Heard Event viewer mentioned somewhere but no idea how to use this or where to look.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
