I am having a very annoying problem in Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Final. Almost every time my PC boots up, it takes the mouse and keyboard about 10 seconds to start working on the Windows login screen. Does anyone know what causes this? I never had this problem on XP.
My computer is high end, so resource hogging at start-up isn't an explanation (I am running on 12GB RAM and Core i7 940) via RAID 5 Adaptec 5805 Controller. I also have a brand new Windows 7 install with literally no other software installed. My mouse and keyboard are NOT wireless, they are USB and no other 3rd party devices are connected to the system.
I understand it is not a big deal and I can wait until they start working but I would really like to know what is causing this, because I am suspecting some faulty hardware in my system.
It's annoying to have invested in an expensive ssd for a fast boot only to have to wait for mouse and keyboard to become active on login screen. Both the mouse and keyboard are active before the login screen.
Doesn't seem to work, I have disabled the second mouse entry in Device manager which has not solved the problem... Strangely once in a while the mouse and keyboard do not have any delay before being active on the login screen, but this was also so before I disabled the second mouse entry in the device manager.
Could this possibly be related to the fact that I havn't installed the driver for the fingerprint reader? it is disabled in the device manager though. I dont want to install a 102MB driver bundle for something I don't use...
I am also experiencing this problem, and can't find anyone else with a similar case.
I'm on a desktop with an M4 crucial boot drive, and I've got about a 10 second delay before I can type or move the mouse.
I recently reinstalled windows and all my programs this week, and haven't experienced this problem until just today.
edit: I just checked device manager. I have my keyboard listed 3 times as HID Keyboard Device, and my mouse listed twice as HID-compliant mouse. I tried removing them and then checking hardware changes to re-add it, but it always re-adds the same number of entries as what I started with...?
Some additional info: I have a Logitech G110 keyboard and A razer deathadder. Both have lights, and I've noticed that they are fully lit within a few seconds of turning on the computer, but once I hit the windows loading screen they turn off, and then on again.
edit: the mouse is immediately responsive and although the cursor is flashing in the password box, my keyboard does not work.
I had the same problem. I removed my "Netgear WPN111" wireless adapter and the problem went away. It was giving me other problems anyway. I would suggest removing other USB devices to see if one of them is the culprit.
