Plugging in and unplugging a usb device

Q: Plugging in and unplugging a usb device

Hi everyone, hope this is a good year for all. I just picked up a new computer running xp. It came without a floppy drive, so I picked up a portable external usb floppy drive. Is it ok to plug in, and unplug the floppy to the usb port with the computer on? Thanks for the tips/advice.

Regards

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Getting ready to do the install on my new SSD with some trepidation. I have Raptors in Raid 0 right now and would like to simply unplug them, set the BIOS to AHCI and use the 0 port for the SSD experiment/potential fiasco. What I hope to be able to do if the SSD doesn't like me, is to unplug it, set the BIOS back to Raid, plug in the Raptors and pretend the whole thing never happened. Does this stand a chance of working?

A:Plugging and Unplugging!

I wouldnt unplug the raptor raid - if you use intel raid (the one i'm sure of and probably similar, or the same for others) when you enable raid in the bios it also enables AHCI - so you should be good to go with testing the ssd drive - just unplugging a raid array can be very hard to set up again - i did it years ago and it was a miracle i got it back up and going again (that included reinstalling the OS) so not recommended - it also depends what options are available in the raid rom (i think its called) which you set it up in before you install the OS. From memory, which is bad, the problem was it couldnt recognise one or both the drives.
It depends on your motherboard I guess but for mind it should be ok - running raid and using the same controller to use a ssd drive in AHCI mode - but treat this as my opinion - you should be able to find information on your motherboards site, or intel etc's, site. Or wait for more replies as Im uncertain and more repies means more suggestions.
If it has 2 controllers eg intel and jmicron use the JMICRON if it supports AHCI to be on the safe side.

Hey guys. I ran into a little problem recently, and would like to share it.
I know it is supposedly ok to plug USB cables in and out while the computer is on, but, to be safe I have always gone through the Safely Remove Hardware icon.
For some reason, though, I have always felt it is safe to just plug sound devices in and out with no regard to whether the computer is on or not. Have done this for years.
However, I noticed a few days ago that one channel of my onboard sound line input had quit, on my newest MB. I did not realize this for awhile, because somehow the system had just rerouted the one channel into both sides, when writing to the CD or DVD. (I noticed that Joe Walsh appeared to be playing an unplugged guitar on the Eagles Hell Freezes Over concert after transferring from my old VHS tape to DVD, even though both speakers were working! LOL)
Anyway...I fixed the problem by just installing a sound card. (by the way, even a cheap $14.00 sound card is at least as good as most onboard sound: mine sounds much better than the original.)
So, would you guys advise having the computer turned off, even to plug in headphones, for instance?
 

A:Plugging/unplugging sound devices

No, 1/8" jacks can freely be plugged/unplugged while the computer is on, and when you're outputting sound.
As to why the jack went dead, cou÷d've been just natural death of age, removing the plug at an extreme angle and damaging the jack, etc...

My problem is this, my motherboard is Biostar TP67B and I have downloaded the sound drivers from the manufacturer website which is realtek high definition audio.However, If i had left my headphone plugged into my front panel jack and when I restart my computer, the headphone icon keeps flickering saying its plugged and unplugged constantly when it is in fact plugged in. I had tinker around a little bit and I have no idea how to fix this problem now. Its going bad to worse as it unplugs itself randomly now. I'm trying to go for a full reinstall of my sound drivers.

A:Headphones Plugging and Unplugging constantly bug

Have you tried a different headphone? Maybe the headphone and not the PC or headphone jack.

If not the headphone, check the connection from the front panel at the motherboard, May be a bad connection there. Reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector at the motherboard. If it still has problems I would suspect the front panel headphone jack, or the wiring.

Hi all,

Acer 7740g, Windows 7 HE.
I have this annoying problem that when my AC power is plugged or unplugged it makes a beep.
Muting the sound completely helps, but that's sometimes not an option.

I tried the following and no luck:

Editing a registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound\Beep and changed it to "No".
Uninstalling the Beep device from my device manager.
Turning off my pc speaker, unfortunately, I didn't find where I can disable it.

My sound card drivers are: Realtek 6.0.1.5969

Anyone has another idea?

Thanks.

Hello, I've noticed that my computer crashes everytime i unplug or i plug in and USB drive. Today I bought a new USB mouse and when I connected it no crashes were seen, but when my pc installed the last driver, the BSoD appeared once again. I'm using Win7 64b and I really don't know what can I do, I've tried everything like uninstalling all USB drivers and recreate the INFCACHE.1 file, but still nothing. What can I do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

A:BSoD when plugging/unplugging USB and when installing USB drivers

1) Does it happen with all usb devices or only the mouse?
 
2) Does it happen with all usb ports?
 
3) Does it happen in safe mode?
 
4) Look in device manager - are there any yellow or red symblos?
 
5) Download and install the newest chipset driver for your system. If it's a laptop, get it from the website of your laptop manufacturer. If it's a desktop, you can get it from either the desktop or the mobo manufacturer's website.
 
6) Look for a bios update.

Hi all,

I'm at a dorm room with cable internet. It usually works fine, but now if I unplug it, then plug it back, the computer doesn't connect to the internet anymore. Sometimes it says it's acquiring network address, but that doesn't change. The computer connects to the internet fine if I turned on the computer with the cable already plugged in.

Another computer doesn't have this problem with the same cable, always able to connect after being unplugged/plugged. Both computers are on Win XP.

I suspect the Windows firewall has something to do with it, if only because it is turned on the the problematic computer, and not on the other one. I couldn't turn it off, however, because it doesn't let me open up Windows Firewall Settings, giving me the message that the "associated service is not running" and whether or not I could like to start it. If I click "Yes", it simply says it "cannot open Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service".

Please let me know what the problem might be and what i can try to get it working again. I hope I haven't given too much useless information.. haha. Thanks!

Dave

Dual Core Windows 7 Pro 64 bit Toshiba laptop. My daughter was working on a Power Point project for school. She went to plug in her flash drive and it didn?t seem to load the drive up. She unplugged it and then plugged it back in. We got a BSOD. We restarted it and it BSOD again. I tried some general troubleshooting, including restoring it to a previous version, and now cannot get into Windows at all. Not even in safe mode. Now I am getting multiple BSODs.

Currently I am seeing these BSODs:


I am getting one when just trying to start and run windows I am getting a BSOD about memory management.


If I try to go into safe mode it loads the files and then I get a BSOD regarding the fbwf.sys.
Using the Windows 7 disc I have been able to get to the System Recovery Options. It finds my install and then blue screens with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL even before it gets to finding my install.


Other BSODs I know I have seen are regarding the Ntfs.Sys and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

I was able to run a mem test on it at one point and it said everything was fine. I would appreciate any help or advice you can give me since I can?t even get to a command prompt or safe mode.

A:Simply unplugging my headphones and plugging them back in seemed to break them. HELP!

Do the speakers still work after you have unattached /reattached the mic?

Presuming you are running Windows (as you haven't specified)

Open control panel, then open Sound (depending on your OS and view options you may need to click on the Hardware and Sound option first or similar)

In the sound window, click on the Recording tab.

With the Mic attached how many devices do you see?

Is the Mic on your headset set as Default?

If you remove the mic and reattach (with the sound window open) does the mic get recognised and show back up in this list?

Does it remain as default / enabled?

In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.

Hi All! Been a while since I've posted, but sitting here reading other's posts, I almost forgot why I logged in!

I have a weird problem with my computer.....a little background:
I didn't turn the computer on for a LONG time....perhaps a year, so one day, I decided to boot it up and it won't boot past the post! So I replaced the MB battery, checked the power supply, replaced the memory...and it booted. But then, I turn it off, and it won't boot again...same problem with it not booting past the mem. post. So being that it was an old computer, I figured I'd just build myself a new machine and use the hard drive as a slave. There are programs on the drive that I want to use that I cannot replace! Well, I tried doing that, but the new computer won't see the drive....it won't even boot with it plugged in. So....

I take the hard drive to another machine that I know works fine, and it boots. Problem solved....so I thought. I turn it off, and try and turn it back on.....nothing.....no beeps, no post....nothing. So I tried changing the power supply, and plug all back in, and it boots. Turn it off, nothing. Long story short, if I unplug the motherboard power cord from the board, and plug it back in, it boots, but if I turn it off, I have to repeat the motherboard plug thing to get it to boot again. I have had the drive checked for viruses, and it's clean.
I have to admit, I am stumped! Any ideas? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciat... Read more

Hi DNGUYEN2252,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system?
Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
I would first suggest you to try with another power adapter. The current one in use might be shorting the system and hence the system powers off.
If another adapter works fine, then replace the adapter. If the other adapter  also exhibits the same behavior, then replace the DC port - this is the part you would need - http://bit.ly/2kZR8go
If nothing works, I would suspect a faulty motherboard. 
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 running Vista Home Basic and have had two periods in the laptop's existence where it would mysteriously freeze. You could see everything on the screen, and the power lights were on, but it would not respond except to a hard reboot by holding the power butting down for 5 seconds.

I am going through one of those periods now, and have discovered that the problem happens when I am either plugging or unplugging the AC power adapter, but don't know why. I have been all over the web for a solution, and while it does seem I am not alone with this problem, I have not read a sensible solution yet. My favorite bad answer is "don't unplug your laptop when it's on."

So, does anyone know what it could be? I wanted to look at system logs, and so went into the Event Viewer not even sure what to look for, but didn't see anything that looked like a likely culprit. Please help!

Thanks,

A:laptop freezes when plugging and unplugging AC power adapter

being a member of the Dell Community Forum, I looked there and found this

A lot things happen in Windows when inserting the AC power adapter.

To check if it's a classic CPU lock-up: repeatedly press capslock. If the capslock light doesn't change, there's no live in there.

Assuming the CPU is locked up: It's possible there's a log entry in the system log just before the AC power adapter is inserted. These entries give clues where to look, just before things went sour.

Next try to reproduce it in Safe Mode (press F8 when Windows start) If it's also in Safe Mode - try running an alternative OS (no need to install)

If the problem also shows up here - most likely it's a hardware issue.

Otherwise it's a windows issue - might be driver related.

the "alternate OS thing is a link on the forum web site. Click here to go to that site.

Hope this is some help... Raybro

Urgh. Typical.

Install new case fans after moving 2 HD cages from the front of Corsar 600T case.
Check they run ok. Fine.
Put HD cages back in, one in the space on the bottom of the case beside the PSU.
Fight with the cables to get the HDs connected and the modular PSU cables back into the PSU.

- Attempt to power on. Nothing.
- Check cable, try another power cable. Nothing.
- No fans, no lights, nothing.
- No 'electrical sound' when flipping the switch on the back of the PSU.

Seems I have a 7 year warrant on the PSU and its only about 3 years old. But Corsair RMA system insists that you "try another PSU to verify the problem is the PSU" which is fair enough so off to buy another PSU, probably another Corsair. Hope the RMA system allows for refund rather than replacement, otherwise I'll have 2 PSUs which isn't really much use. I guess I can use this as an opportunity to upgrade to a bigger PSU since 7970 CF, 3 HD, 2 SSD, i7 2600K @ 4.7Ghz, a powered device connected to almost every single USB port is probably getting towards it's limits. I can then stick any replacement HX750 on Ebay or something...

Hi, I have a laptop with vista installed. At home I usually plug a speaker in via the USB port and that works just great. When I unplug it to go out, however, I notice that sometimes the sound function on my laptop would go out, with a little red x over the sound icon in the systems tray complaining "No audio output device is installed". In sound under control panel, nothing would be listed under the playback tab.

In the past, this problem goes away when I plug the USB speakers back in and restart. However, this time I think my USB ports are malfunctioning, and no USB device I'm plugging in is recognized. While that is a separate problem, the fact that I have no sound now on my laptop is really becoming quite an issue.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Cookie7898 and welcome to the forums

This could be because you are not removing the device safely. Check the icons on the bottom right of the taskbar. You are looking for the icon that looks like the one highlighted in red. If this symbol is not showing, click on the left-pointing arrow on the left (shown here as right-pointing because all the symbols are showing) to expand this group to show all symbols.

Left click on this and from the pop-up select the device by left clicking on it. Wait until the following message is displayed.

Hello Windows 7 Community,

I am having a problem with a novatel usb760 aircard modem. I installed this device properly. The drivers, and firmware updates all installed successfully. I was able to use it fine right after installation. The next day when I plugged it into my usb port, I got a bluescreen immediately. I tried it in other ports and the same happened. I have used this device on another laptop, and it works absolutely fine, no issues at all. Other USB devices work fine on my laptop. It seems to just happen with this one. I have no clue how to go about fixing this, so I hope one of you more computer-savvy individuals will be able to.

Hello All,

I've been dealing with an intermittent problem that cropped up about two months ago. Sometimes, when I plug in a USB device, my computer instantly crashes to a blue screen. The issue is not isolated to any one USB port, nor any single USB device, but usually it occurs with my wireless mouse which I connect/disconnect frequently. Again, the problem is intermittent. Usually things work, but every now and then they just don't, and I haven't been able to find a pattern. I've contacted HP tech support, but they were unable to solve my problem.

Details of my computer:

Compaq F572US
Windows 7 Home Premium, installed from retail box over Vista Home Premium
32-bit
The laptop is probably three years old (bought it used)
Windows 7 has been installed for about a year
AMD Athlon 64 X2
Nvidia GeForce Go 6100

The only suggestions from HP support I haven't tried yet are to reinstall Windows, and to send in the laptop for repair. I'm certainly not going to get it repaired since it is out of warranty, and I don't want to reinstall Windows yet because I doubt reinstalling will solve the problem anyway.

I have attached files in accordance with the BSOD posting instructions, and I can provide other technical details if needed.

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

Wondering if anyone can help me solve why my audio goes every time I plug in my mouse or external hard drive into one of the usb ports. The only way I can get audio back is by restarting the computer.

I'm running Windows 8 on ASUS UX32VD.

I've gone into Sound settings, Communications tab, and selected Do Nothing. But that's not solved the problem.

Thanks in advance to any kind soul who can shed some light on this!

Hello, everyone!

I would like to request for assistance regarding the stated problem above. Whenever I plug-in my flash drive into the front USB port of my CPU casing, my computer suddenly stops responding to the point that you cannot do anything without pressing the RESTART button. Then, after restart, it will load the Windows very, very slow. The firewall stops wprking, the antivirus cannot start properly and even any application I run will not run. I tried the SFC /SCANNOW thrice after restarting but no problem was found. To restore to normal speed, I need to restart the PC to almost twice or thrice and then wait a few minutes after showing the Desktop. After that, the PC runs smoothly. The flash drive that I plugged in is working properly, I tested it to another PC and no problem was encountered. For now, I do not use the USB ports of my PC to avoid that annoying freezing.

I suspected the USB port is the culprit, maybe have problem in connection or something. I am planning to buy a new casing but if it is not the problem, I may not buy a new one. So, please, hep me with this so that I can save money. ANY help & suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance, SevenForums guys!

A:Computer Freezes after Plugging In USB Device

If its rebooting very slow; and it freezes; it sounds to me like there could be a bunch of malware; spyware; and or adware in your system causing that. As that stuff will slow down windows a lot!. I would download, install, and run the following programs from the links below and see what they come up with:

Downloading AdwCleaner

SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloading File

https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/

Also; one last thing: after you run all those programs; do a disk defrag and let it run and that should speed things up a bit as well hopefully.

When ever I plug a USB product in my Windows 2000 laptop, the system says Found Hardware and then stops and hangs. I am forced to reboot as nothing ever happens. I really dont have much on this system. Any ideas why it may be hanging?
 

A:hanging system when plugging in USB device

Next time more information would be extremely beneficial in getting a more helpful reply.

1) What is the device you're trying to plug in?
2) Do you have the latest drivers available for the device?
3) What is going on.... have you actually installed it previously and you're plugging it back in Or are you installing it for the first time?
4) What is your operating system?
5) At what point is the hang-up occuring?
6) Have you tried to install it while in safe mode?

And finally, this may be the least likely scenario for you but the problem may be that you're trying to install it while logged under as a restricted user or guest account. For W2K Pro and XP you need to install it as an administrator.

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

This might point us to a non Microsoft driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

If you do not see any minidumps, be sure you are not using any cache cleaner such as CCleaner. Also run sysdm.cpl and select Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Make sure "small memory dump" is the one chosen under "write debugging information" and the location should be %systemroot%\minidump

Hi all!

My computer crashes whenever I plug a USB device in it. I first noticed it when I plugged in a camera, thinking it was the camera, I then tried my own flash drive which worked fine (Possibly using fat32 format); but yesterday I tried my mates flash drive (NTFS) and that crashed it, I've also tried a bunch of other flash drives around the house and they also crash my computer.

I'm running windows 7 64 bit, ASUS p8z68-v pro mobo, i5 2500k, 4GB DDR3 1600MHz ripjaw, Sapphire HD6950.

I have tried running memtest which passed 13 times flawlessly. I also tried running driver verifier, which seemed to really screw me over. At the start, when the windows logo first appears, it hangs a little bit and then blue screens. Luckily I had made a system repair disk the night before. I also don't know why but when I tried to start in safe mode (pressing f8 while booting) all it gave me was the option to choose which device to boot from, which I'm guessing is some sort of feature on my mobo, but I digress. So I'm guessing it's something to do with USB drivers?

I have attached all the needed information, perfmon and minidumps etc.
Any information and/or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

A:BSOD, crashing when plugging in a USB device

Ah.. my friend, Driver Verifier did not screw you over, it's what is about to give you the answer!

All three non-verifier enabled dump files were ntkrnlmp.exe, it says that because it does not know what is causing it, so it shoots a false positive process fault. The driver verifier enabled dump file however showed exactly what is causing it!

Whenever I plug in any USB device, the monitor will go blank, but the case fans and lights will continue operating. The computer remains like this until I hold down the power button to turn it off and then restart it. It will restart fine. In addition to the monitor going blank, all power is turned off from USB devices (e.g. optical mouse light turns off).

This occurs probably about 25% of the time I plug a USB device in (sometimes nothing happens, as should be).

It does not mater which port I use. It's happened with rear ports, a hub wired to a rear port, front case ports (plugged into motherboard USB pins), or a PCI USB hub.

I've looked extensively for solutions and can't find any. I checked my motherboard multiple times for swollen capacitors and have not found any.

Today (and never before) when I plugged a mouse in, the same issue occurred, but the monitor turned back on about two seconds later, and a pop-up notified me of drivers successfully being installed. (I didn't notice whether USB power was cut) This makes me think that the computer is adjusting the display (as it does when a program requests administrative permission and the screen sometimes goes blank) but for some reason does not come back from it. There really is no indication that Windows stops. I never get a BSOD.

Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit, regularly updated
Display Adapter: Nvidia GeForce 9600 GSO (756MB)

Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks a lot.

A:Plugging in USB device causes display to go blank

I'm not sure whether this is the correct answer, but you may need to re-install your chipset drivers.

If it is a self-built computer you should be able to get them from the motherboard manufacturer.

If it is a computer bought from a manufacturer then you'll need to go to their driver support site.

Hi all!

So I built my own PC late last year and have had absolutely no problems with it whatsoever, until my brother plugged in his JVC HD GC-FM2 camera. This camera is supposed to be able to be plugged into any PC without issue and without the need to install software/drivers, but for me it blue screens. I am able to plug in other USB devices just not this camera.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, my computer is up to date, to the best of my knowledge anyway lol. I checked event viewer and if it's any help the relative event ID is 41. I've also attached all the needed documents.

I've tried searching for a solution but to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

A:BSOD Plugging in USB device, error 0x3b

The latest BSOD was probably caused by ntkrnlmp.exe.

The 0x3B error is usually caused by a hardware device or it's corresponding driver. In this case, it'll be this camera of yours. Do the BSOD's only occur with the device plugged in? Or do the BSOD's just happen at random intervals?

You will need to run an sfc/scannow command in an elevated command prompt. If errors are found, run it twice more with each scan followed by a reboot.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You should then test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Finally, enable Driver Verifier. However before you do, it is advised that you create a system restore point and backup first.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

You should also think about plugging your camera into another computer to see whether the camera is really at fault or if your computer is responding differently to the camera. However, only attempt this if you are not worried about getting BSOD's on the test computer; there is a risk that the problem from your computer may start on the test computer.

Hey guys, I'm really hoping you can help me out. If possible please keep it simple. My brain is fried.

So I moved to Japan and dont speak a word of Japanese. I managed to wrangle a meeting and get a modem installed. They also added a router that I found in the apartment. It both worked after the two guys fiddled with the router physically.

My phone and tablet and ps4 were all connected and worked like a charm. I had to unplug both router and modem to put in a multiplug. After replugging both went on and only my ps4 connected. The phone and tablet go into a connecting ip loop. If I unplug router and modem and replug they connect to the first device and do loop with the remaining two.

Using static ip on my android devices shows them as connected but they cant go onto any websites or use online apps.

I have no pc or laptop and Im not sure how to hard reset

Hi guys. When I start up the computer and everything - nothing's wrong. But a while ago I plugged in my Digital Camera through a front USB port on my base unit and it appeared in My Computer no problem, but then suddenly "Windows Error - No Disk In Drive" error popped up. And I thought why has that appeared when I can access and see my camera drive? So I thought there may be a problem with the front USB port, but later on I plugged my iPod into my computer through a USB port in the back on the computer, and the message popped up again. I can either Cancel the error message, Try Again, or Continue. But it just keeps popping up no matter which one I click. I have to restart the computer in order for it to go away. I have other things plugged into my USB ports such as a Microphone, Wireless Network Adaptor, and Printer, so I thought it can't be the ports. Also, today, a different error message came up. Originally the No Disk error came up and I tried cancelling as usual, and it went away for a few second but then this error came up instead. [/URL][/IMG]Can anyone help me please?

Thanks, Andrew.

Please note that it is only iOS devices (such as the iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone) which need drivers installed on your PC in order to be recognized.

You must follow very closely this Apple-provided guide on how to uninstall and reinstall your iTunes in order for the drivers to be correctly installed:

If you do not want to install iTunes on your PC, you can use an alternative method for installing iOS drivers required.

Dell Support - ran across a weird defect/bug with USB-C.  I'm running latest drivers - Chipset_Driver_7P7G7_WN32_15.3.39.250_A01.
On balanced power mode; battery fully charged, plugged into AC.
Within 1-2 minutes after plugging in any device, fan speeds ramp up from just under 40dB to 43.5dB (in my office).  It's quite an audible jump as well. Upon removing this device, fan speeds return to "normal".  Same device plugged into USB 3.0 port will not cause this jump.

Windows 7 Ultimate/32bit. iTunes 9.0
Each time I dock my iPhone, I get a pop-up message "device driver software was not installed successfully". I want to stop this message appearing.
In fact, Windows 7 *is* locating the correct USBAAPL driver (which is seen to load in Device Manager) and iTunes works fine.
However, since the detail on the error message relates to "MTP USB device" it seems that Windows is triggering the error too soon.
I recently reinstalled Windows 7 from scratch and latest iTunes etc (for other reasons) but this problem remains.
If I delete the driver then the default that Windows looks for is the MTP driver (which fails) and then I manually point it to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers and it reinstalls the USBAAPL driver it had before.
 
 
 

A:Plugging in iPhone generates "device driver software was not installed successfully" message

Try go to Device Manager, if there is any “Unknown MTP device”, uninstall it,  then plug in your iPhone and scan for hardware changes to let Windows Update automatically find and install the correct driver.
