Windows 7: Auto-Detect issue

Auto-Detect issue

My computer has developed a lag during startup. When the boot process gets to Auto-detecting USB Mass Storage Devices there is a noticeable pause whereas there was none before. It is not consistent, sometimes it happens and then sometimes it doesn't. Is this a problem and what can I do about it? My specs: OS: Win 7 Home 64 CPU: Intel Core i7 920 overclocked @ 3.8GHz Liquid Cooling: Corsair Hydro H50 + Arctic Silver Ceramique Memory: 12GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 CAS 9-9-9-24-2N @ 1.6V Motherboard: ASUS P6X58D - supports 3 Way SLI and 3 Way CrossFire, SATA 6.0 and USB 3.0 Video Card: ATI Radeon HD5970 with 2GB GDDR5 PHYSX Card: BFG GeForce 8800GTS /w 512MB GDDR3 Hard Drive 1: 300GB WD VelociRaptor 10,000RPM Hard Drive 2: 1TB WD Caviar Black 7,200RPM External Hard Drive: WD Elements 1.5TB DVD Burner #1: LiteOn 24X with LightScribe DVD Burner #2: LiteOn 24X with LightScribe Card Reader: Vantec 58-in-1 Memory Card Reader Power Supply: Antec True Power Quattro 1000Watt PSU Computer Case: Antec Twelve Hundred

- If you unplug your external usb devices, does it lag?
- update your bios, if possible
- select primary boot as hard drive, and do not have any other boot devices
- disable legacy usb support
