I have this problem too. I am not at the relevant computer right now, so I cant try to update the BIOS or the USB 3.0 drivers, but I thought I'd throw my 2cents in to the discussion.
In my experience, the beeping usually starts when I unplug a USB device from the computer. It is usually my Saitek Pro Combat pedals that got unplugged, but Im not sure if it is only when the pedals are unplugged.
Like some others have said, keyboard still works, and also other USB HID devices work. For instance, last night, after the beeping started, I was still able to play MGSV with my USB connected PS4 controller.
Asus ROG Maximus Hero VII
Intel i7-4770k at base clock
16 GB Ram
EVGA GTX970x2 Superclocked (SLI)
2x 27" 1080p monitors (dont have room yet for a third)
-Logitech M570 trackball
-Logitech G710+ keyboard with USB slot containing
--4 port usb hub with mechanical disconnect switches. Contains
-----Saitek Pro Combat Pedals
-----Thrustmaster Warthog Stick and Throttle
-----(occaisonally) Logitech G930 headset
-PS4 Dualshock controller (using USB, no special drivers)
-Logitech G105 keyboard (for leaning back and doing casual browsing. )
I also noticed something about USB like I already said.
Yesterday, I looked up about the review of my motherboard and I noticed there's people that had some problem with USB port that would be fixed with BIOS update. My motherboard is the Asus H87 Plus.
Actuallly still didnt had the problem since the BIOS update and BSOD of the USB 3.0 hub controller that I fixed with reinstalling the driver.
a month later, still no beeping issues since BIOS update and changing the usb hub controller driver. I can't certify at 100% but I think the driver was the problem.
Yesterday, when I tryed to open a Steam game (Chivalry Modern Warfare), the problem came back very shortly. It ended after like 4 seconds. It happened when I tryed to load the came, then the game crashed for a couple of seconds and the beeps occured during the crash, then when the game was fixed it disappeared. It was the same beeps but It happened during a loading crash. The problem was occuring at any time before my USB driver update so I conclude maybe it's an overload of the computer and the USB driver made this problem happen randomly!
So I have read every post in this thread and I, like others, have created this account to possibly give some insight to this issue.
This just happened for the first time about 30 mins ago on my wife's laptop. It is a Asus G75VW Republic of Gamers laptop.
Intel i7 3720QM & 3610QM Processors
Intel HM77 Chipset
Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M
It used to be my old gaming laptop but I gave it to her a year ago when I upgraded. She does not game, uses a cheap wireless logitech mouse & keyboard combo (rarely uses the keyboard) and generally spends her time on Chrome. The problem affects the built in touch pad as well as the mouse but does nothing to the keyboard. (Note to self: check the wireless keyboard next time it happens.) We do not have it plugged into a external monitor so I know that is not the issue. Actually the only ever plugged into it is the power cable and the one wireless receiver for the combo mouse/keyboard.
I know it's not a game or any peripherals because unless this is logitechs attempt to take over the world by being really annoying, nothing adds up. From gamers, to graphic designers to stay-at-home-moms, people from all walks of computer-usage-life, seem to be affected.
Have had this problem on my brothers machine for past 9-12 months. Only seems to happen when gaming. When mouse is panned it momentarily freeze or lags and accompanied by some notification or connect/disconnect beeps. Also happens in windows 10 which he dual boots with. Mouse is Logitech MX-518 on Gigabyte P67a-UD4 board (latest bios) + GTX 770. We thought problem was solved by installing Logitechs lastest drivers but sadly it reappeared next day. Tried almost everything including unplugging all USB devices excluding the mouse. KB is on PS/2 port. His rig is about 4 years old but the issue only appeared within last year and on Win 8 at first and now on Win 10 as well.
Also having this issue.
Windows 8.1 Pro
Happens when I log back onto the computer after having been logged on using RDP
- ASUS Z97-A
- Core i7-4790K (Haswell)
- 16 GB of RAM
- GTX 970
I have a bunch of peripherals plugged into a USB3 hub including
- USB sound card (AudioQuest DragonFly)
- Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920
- Logitech Gaming Mouse G400
- Kinesis Freestyle2 keyboard
- Kinesis Freestyle2 numpad
The only constant application that is always running on my computer is Chrome. Using CTRL + ALT + DEL and then logging out and the back in solves the issue.
I'm going to try to do all the possible BIOS updates and driver updates. I also ordered a new cable for my USB hub...
I'm having the same problem on Windows 10, I recently restored my Windows 10 and have fresh files and programs installed, all drivers up to date. I recently had trouble with my GTX 970 and started getting these problems assuming it was the GPU, Brought me to this forum where I saw something about disable audio devices. Went to check my audio devices and there are now 3 different HDMI audio output sources on top of the HDMI link to the TV I have plugged up, There is only one HDMI port on the MSI 970 and this has never happened before as I have been in my audio devices many times since the restore. Did some googling and could not find a single post about random HDMI audio sources. I Disabled the drivers of the multiple HDMI audio sources, and awaiting to see if this problem happens again.
My specs are as follows:
-HP Envy 700-056 desktop tower
-AMD A-10 6700 4.2Ghz
-Nvidia GTX 970 MSI
-Logitech MX Anywhere mouse
-K120 Wireless Keyboard
-Turtle Beach Stealth 450
