Windows 7: win7 x64 needs devices disabled/enabled after reboot, why?

win7 x64 needs devices disabled/enabled after reboot, why?

I've posted elsewhere, no answers, so I thought I would try here...

I rebooted my Win7 x64 machine the other day.

It acted funny after boot. Device manager shows about 10 usb devices and my ethernet motherboard nics (2 of them) as 'error 10, cannot start'

If I disable and reenable each one at a time, it all comes back, until the next reboot, where the problem happens again.

Anyone every seen this? Or come across a fix for it. Obviously the devices are fine, just some sort of startup timing issue

Thanks in advance

I had a similar issue with my Asus P5K Deluxe. seems that if there are a lot of usb devices connected the bios does not initialize them correctly. I flashed my bios to the latest asus version and that corrected the usb initialization problem.
Check the bios on your mobo and see if you have the latest version compared with Asus website.

Please Rep. me if this helps you out.
See my specs!
