My laptop device manager shows storage devices connecting and disconnecting randomly without having any actual device connected to it why?
About the laptop, it is a Compaq CQ57 that had an AMD 1.0 Ghz dual core CPU. Being so underpowered I figured it needed a motherboard upgrade. I replaced it with an HP 2000 Notebook MOBO. I also upgraded the CPU to an I5 2540M @ 2.6 Ghz and I dropped in 8 GIGs of RAM. It would be a perfectly fine working laptop if it weren't for that issue. everything else is fine with it. I have the same results whether I use Windows 7 or 10, or Linux. Waiting to hear thoughts and thanks in advance!
