strange bootup after installing components in new PC case

I rebuilt by installing all hardware in a new Coolermaster haf 930 full size tower. Everything seemed fine on bootup but, I noticed the drivers, were installing I think, for the ssd and dvd/cd. it booted back up and restarted just fine all day yesterday. When I got up this morning, I turned it on and it got to the welcome screen with small spinning circle next to it but, stayed there a lot longer than usual. Next, it went to a plain blue screen and stayed there for 10-15 seconds then all icons popped on the monitor as usual and everything worked fine after that till I shut down or restart then it's the same thing all over again. All help will be greatly appreciated Thanks!

Re-check all your connections. It sounds like something that was previously connected is not now.

Also: are you using the same power supply as before? Or is it a new supply that came with the case?
If a new supply, what are the specs on both (old and new).

So we all understand correctly.
Did you move hardware from a old computer to the new tower.

The operating system and all drivers ect was already on the ssd.

Just a clean hardware swap??

Is your concern that your boot time is slower than it use to be?
Could you let us know from a Cold Boot to the Desktop time in seconds.
You don't need to use any special programs just watch a clock.

I used all the same hardware just put it in a new tower. I checked device manager and found this unknown device so I uninstalled it and since that, it has booted up normally twice in 23-24 seconds.

Post a screenshot of your Device Manager window, with the category the problem device is in expanded.

I suspect you have a new device connected from the case (Firewire, USB-3.0, etc), changed from the previous case, that will now need a driver.

Your right, the front usb on this tower are 3.0 the other tower just had the usb 2.0 I guess I'd better make sure the front panel usb 3.0 sockets are still working. If not, I will try to post a picture of device manager expanded Thanks!

Front panel usb 3.0 still working with nothing in device manager showing up unusual now and still reboots fine so maybe, I'm good to go now.

The last thing to check is that the USB controller on your motherboard is USB 2 or 3. If it is USB2 then obviously your case ports will only run at USB2 speed, not USB3. If the controller is USB3 then you may need to install a USB3 driver to get USB3 speeds.

You boot times are very good.
I do agree with TVeblen many time one has to add the usb 3.0 drivers to the system.
