That usually means you've passed the POST (power on self test) successfully and are about to start up Windows.
Can you boot into Windows Safe Mode? Keep pressing F8 while you power on and at the Advanced Boot Options menu choose Safe Mode.

Either the device or the USB port itself could have been the problem.

It could also have been a missing software driver needed for the USB device.
