Windows 7: Keyboard (drivers?) slow to load on startup

Keyboard (drivers?) slow to load on startup

A few times over the last couple years, seemingly randomly, windows will get into a consistent state where it won't receive input from the keyboard after it starts up and is at the login screen. This will last around 30 seconds.
I have a CM Storm Quickfire TK brown keyboard, which works fine.
The mouse works. A Roccat Kone XTD.
I've tried other ports, i've tried some settings in the bios such as fastboot, usb legacy support, usb initialization, etc, but they don't help at all.

So this leads me to believe that windows just doesn't know that there's a keyboard giving it input for a while after startup. Unfortunately, I don't have another keyboard to test this.
It used to be that the keyboard's backlight would come on before the monitor would automatically display the hdmi input after the windows startup, and i could type in my password and log in within seconds after boot. When the monitor displays a few seconds later, I would already be on the desktop...

Any idea why this is occurring?

You can check if there is a service for your keyboard with delayed automatic.
Also try uninstall and re-install keyboard software.
Perhaps a clean startup to see if some other program/service is interfering. Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

It seems random.
Like the thing will load up fine and quick and the keyboard works right out of the gate as long as the keyboard was in the same port as it was when it was shut down the last few times :/...

It seems to be working alright now. I'll keep the "clean startup" in mind, but for now, I'm gonna assume it fixed itself.

There is no keyboard software for this thing. I know it sounds weird, but Coolermaster doesn't have any sort of drivers or software on their site for this keyboard. From the start it was just plug-and-play. It works alright for the most part.

I have 2 plug/play Das keyboards.

I plug them into USB 2.0 not 3.0.
Boot Windows 7 and it installs driver 6.1.7601.17514 and they work.

I do not use Fast Boot/Quick Boot because at time it's to quick and sometimes things don't get loaded.

I found the culprit. Asus Fan Controller Service.
Set it to delayed start, and it'll adjust the fans normally after boot, and the login page keyboard is quick as normal.

Thanks fellas
