    Hello, I'm running W7 Pro, a cpl of hrs ago, I started getting the message on my system tray '" usb device not recognized/malfunctioned", I also can hear the "dadam, dadum" notification as if I were pluging and unpluging a usb device constantly. I unpluged my wireless keyboard/mouse combo and pluged back in again, did the same with an mp3 player....they are all recognized and working through usb, but i still get the error message about every 5-10 seconds. Any ideas?? ty.

    nope, did that , but there is a " usb composite device" in the usb list that keeps popping up. Message says to replug removed device to fix problem. I've plugged in everything I have used recently and they dont show as a problem...... Now its showing "unknown device" with the yellow triangle icon with exclamation mark in it. Only thing plugged in is wierless keyboard/mouse reciever an they are working right.??????

    Try removing the drivers in question from device manager then introduce them only after powering off computer, removing from power plug outlet and using a wired keyboard/mouse.
