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

WinXP / Win 7 / Win 8.1 64bit Dual Boot

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!

What do 'enabled' and 'disabled' UAC virtualization mean?
In the task manager in the column for UAC virtualization, "not allowed" means a thing is running as administrator. But what do 'enabled' and 'disabled' mean? I don't know what virtualization is but it's safe to say I don't need to get deeply involved with it. I only have one computer and I'm...

How do i? : OS-Startup configuration with LAN=enabled + WWW=disabled
Hi, I would like to configure my Win7 OS so that it starts with WLAN for my printer, but inhibits the start of www/Internet services. Problem is (at least for me) that my WLAN-Router handles both. The laptop machine in question is using a dual install config with Win7 and Ubuntu 12.04. I would...

Poll : Have you got UAC enabled or Disabled ?
Me, When I first installed 7, I did have it enabled for a little while, however after a while I decided to turn it off, because I found it somewhat annoying, and I found it slowed down my everyday computer. I don't even need it anyway, I've got a good lineup of security defenses, including...
