Windows 10: Device Connect noise is playing non-stop!

Discus and support Device Connect noise is playing non-stop! in AntiVirus, Firewalls and System Security to solve the problem; I was just sitting here watching a live stream when the Device Connect noise happened... then 5 seconds later happened again, then 15 seconds later......

  1. Device Connect noise is playing non-stop!


    I was just sitting here watching a live stream when the Device Connect noise happened... then 5 seconds later happened again, then 15 seconds later... and it would go on like that at various intervals until I started opening Event Viewer and Device Manger trying to figure out what was happening, then suddenly it ramped up to every 2 seconds, and continued like that non-stop. So of course I searched online and found some suggestions that initially seemed to work. I thought it was an "Unknown USB Device" under USB Controllers Device Manager, so I disabled, them. It stopped it for a few minute

  2. Device Manager Un-Hiding Hidden Devices

    When you connect a plug and play device, Windows Plug and Play manager detects it, finds and installs the driver. Device Manager lists the device with a solid icon.

    The driver is only removed when you uninstall the device, not simply by disconnecting the device. When the device is disconnected, its driver is still installed. By default, Device Manager only displays connected devices. When you show hidden devices, note the Bluetooth icon you see is semi-transparent (not opaque). That indicates a "non-present" device. Sometimes also called a "ghost" device. The driver is still installed but the device is not currently detected (i.e. not connected).

    Device can be disconnected when
    • Device unplugged (e.g. removing a USB device)
    • Turning a device OFF
    • Disabling the device in BIOS (then windows won't detect it) or
    • Device failure

    So
    • Check BIOS as suggested
    • Check board connections
    • Can b/t be turned off by a switch? or keyboard combination?
    Also possible the b/t h/w failed

    Groove stops playing abruptly

    Groove occasionally stops playing a few seconds into a song when I double click a new track in Windows Explorer and an existing track is already playing.

    Steps to reproduce

    • Open the Music folder
    • Double-click a track
    • With the track still playing, select a different track from Windows Explorer
    • Repeat a few times letting the track play for a few seconds before selecting another
    • On occasion Groove will stop playing a track that has already started

    Dualshock 4 speaker making horrible static/buzzing noise when connected via bluetooth

    I've been using my dualshock 4 controller to play some games via micro usb with no problems. I decided that I'd rather play with bluetooth connection instead due to wires tethering me to my computer. I bought a bluetooth 4.0 dongle and managed to connect
    it with no troubles. My computer detects it and I am able to use it to play games as if it were still connected via usb.

    The problem I am facing now is that there is a horrible static/buzzing noise coming from the controller's built in speaker that fluctuates when using it. All of the forums and such that I have seen suggest turning the controller volume down, however no such
    option is available on pc. There is no static noise when connected by usb.

    The strange part is that sometimes when I click down the L3 button (left analogue stick) the buzzing will stop. It will either continue when I let go, or stop briefly and then continue once I start using it again. It also stops when I plug my headphones
    into the headphone jack on the bottom of the controller.

    I have tried using the built in reset button on the controller, restarting my pc, using the suggested program 'DS4' as well as not using it, and uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for the controller.

    The controller works fine when connected, but how do I stop the buzzing noise as it is awful to listen to.
