It is not normal that the system takes too much time to boot with the USB devices connected.
Here are our recommendations for this issue:
- Unplug the power cord, remove all non-basic components, connect the power cord back in and try to boot up the system. If problem does not take place, try installing the other components one at the time until you find out which is the conflicting one.
- Remove/Reinstall the USB drivers from device manager for testing.
- Yes is possible to rollback to a previous BIOS version by using the BIOS recovery method:
- If you are looking to restore defaults, you can remove the CMOS battery for 30 minutes. Once in the BIOS setup utility, press <F9> to restore BIOS default settings. Reset any customized BIOS settings. Clear all DMI event logs, which are located in the Advanced section of the BIOS Setup utility. Press <F10> to save the new settings and reboot the system.
Thanks for the reply. Following your advice this is what I did and the results.
I unplugged computer and all usb devices, then plugged computer back in and rebooted. Everything loaded fast, 9 seconds to full windows screen. I then plugged in my devices one at a time and all was well until I plugged in the USB 3 external drive. This delayed boot to windows for 21 seconds. Below are the problems encountered.
1) The USB 3 external drive delays boot to full windows for 21 seconds.
2) A USB 2 external drive plugged into a USB 3 port does not delay boot but it prevents me from shutting down through the start menu. The computer will restart with this drive plugged in. I have to unplug the drive to shut down.
3) My mouse function is delayed once windows us up by up to 20 seconds. Sometime 5 seconds, but usually more like 15 seconds. I will hear the sound that windows makes when it is loading drivers. I have tried differnet usb ports with the same delay. This was not happening prior to my reinstalling the USB 3 driver.
I think thats it for now. I appreciate your help.
