My laptop with Intel 82801G (ICH7 Family) and Mobile 945 chipset family continually gives the hardware added or removed sound. When this happens Device Manager scrolls up and down. I am not adding or removing hardware. I have seen something like this at work; it was connected to the malfunction of a usb wireless scanner base.
