Default odd noise

My comp started making funny noises totally randomly, like some sort of
”prompt” but no error message or anything to let me know what this f’ing noise is.
Well duh, it’s the noise that the computer makes when you ad or remove a peripheral, attached via usb cable.
Ok but why? And which port.
I pulled out all my usb’s blasted all the ports w/ air duster so well see what happens.
When im playing a game, it freezes for a split second, not bad but enough.
I think it may have been my mouse (pulling out just enough)
Has this happened to anyone else?
Any other ideas?
Like I said its random, so ill have to wait awhile to see if it keeps happening
