Windows 7: USB Devices slow at boot up

You might try checking to make sure the motherboard battery is okay, but that is a shot in the dark. They usually last a long time. Other than that, keep us posted on anything new, and let us know if it works out.

Hah! Funny you should mention to keep you up to date...I have been working on this for the last 3 hours. it has come down to this,(see img) I created a system restore point to the point of no issues and everything working perfectly. Every time I install one of the following updates, I either get a BSOD for the ntoskrnl.exe (which I have started a post on before) and/or my USB devices not starting up when the computer boots up.

It seems when I install one of these I get the BSOD and the USB devices won't start up..with out them installed.....It's flawless...I'll post back with what I find out..unless someone has an idea here???

Update: For some reason, which is beyond me. For my Marvell Yukon 88E805 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet (I don't know why it is a PCI-E one, cause its not, it's part of my MOBO) the older driver version 11.0.5.3 works flawlessly allowing me to have everything boot up without issue. The only issue leaving this driver installed, the computer will boot up slower but everything comes on together. When I install the 11.22.3.9 updated version, this is where I get all my issues....I have tested it at least 10 times, restarting and everytime, with the old drivers, It does the same exact thing over and over again, which is slower start up and all USB devices working perfectly.
With the newest version, it's a quicker boot up time, but I lose the ability to use mouse and keyboard for almost 1-2 minutes...Faithfully... So now my dilemma, live with which ever one I want to live with, or continue to figure this thing out.....

You can hide those updates. In this case, you should choose to get those drivers from the motherboard's website, rather than windows update. Glad you found the cause.

If the motherboard's drivers from the website don't work, and/or you are fine with your current drivers, then I would leave everything as is.

EDIT: the display driver is not part of the motherboard, nor is it usually needed. I would altogether disregard that one.

What you can do is but readyboost on the devices you use most, keyboard, mouse etc.
I'm not sure if that will help but I have a usb and it was doing the same thing I found readyboost in properties and just installed it to the usb, takes about 5-7 secs to load up.

Good luck

No mate, readyboost makes a spare USB thumb drive "act as RAM", to put it lightly. It does nothing for the keyboard or mouse. It is good to speed up slower systems by a small degree, but does nothing else. It will not speed up a USB device. It is confusing, I know. Perhaps this will help you understand it better then I can explain it -

Ok, So apparently it is related to my Marvell Yukon 88E805 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Driver. I have found the most recent updated version (11.45.4.3) and this still does the same thing. I am going to uninstall it and go back to the original one (11.10.5.3) and live with the Slower Boot up time for now, till I can find this fix. I have looked into the properties (perhaps I should start another thread on this) of the Network Controller and found the Advanced Tab and here is a bunch of stuff I am not at all familiar with. Maybe someone here can help me to understand them?

But that wont speed up your boot time. You can follow this tutorial. It has many settings you can change and tells you exactly what you can do to speed up a system without downloading a thing:

Hmm....I appreciate your input here, but I just formatted and everything should be optimized already by default. I have nothing installed on here yet, except for Windows Updates and most Drivers. I am using 2x120 SSD's in a RAID 0. My Boot time is less than 15 seconds. The Write-Caching might be something I will look at in the future, but right now, I am trying to figure out I have reverted back to the original Driver for my Network Adapters and its working like it's supposed to...for now..I have Hidden the Marvell Yukon 88E805 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet updated Driver for now...and so far things are running smoothly...I'll keep you posted...
