USB power seems to cut off at start up?

So I've had this issue for a while, and recently after observing my other PC's I noticed it's only this one computer that has the issue.

Whenever I am starting my PC, as soon as the windows logo appears, the power to my speakers and other USB peripherals suddenly shuts off and starts back up.

Is this a bad issue to have? Could I fix it? And where should I start looking? The computer is nearly perfect in every other regard. It's just this tiny thing that drives me crazy.

Also, what sort of programs could I use to test my SSD and HD's speeds?

I wish I had some help to offer. That definitely sounds annoying. The only advice I can think of is that if it is at all possible to mess with that kind of stuff it would definitely be BIOS related. That's where I'd start looking. Then I guess look for some way to edit the order of powered devices and see if reordering helps at all. Sorry I don't have an answer. As for drive speeds I'm sure you could google that with acceptable results.

check to see if there any bios updates for usb fixes. I would also see if there are any usb drivers updates. i would also check to see if your bios has any usb handoff. sounds like it a usb handoff issue between the mb bios and windows boot.
