Every 5 minutes a bubble will come up in the taskbar saying there is a problem with reading something on one of my usb ports. There is no device plugged in, despite what it is saying. I don't really care for my usb ports, but how do i get this bubble to go away? I have tried disabling the port, and turning off the usb thing in BIOS.

If you have any advice, thank you!!!!!!

Welcome back. Another geek may be able to answer that question, but in the meantime, why don't we look at your system with a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Your system looks fine. Wait until one of the other guys checks in and see what they have to say. Good luck. <_<

Have you checked to see if there's a BIOS or driver update for your motherboard?

I have no idea how to go about doing that. As for the popping up bubble, it just started doing this, I have no idea why.
