Keyboard (drivers?) slow to load on startup

Q: Keyboard (drivers?) slow to load on startup

A few times over the last couple years, seemingly randomly, windows will get into a consistent state where it won't receive input from the keyboard after it starts up and is at the login screen. This will last around 30 seconds.
I have a CM Storm Quickfire TK brown keyboard, which works fine.
The mouse works. A Roccat Kone XTD.
I've tried other ports, i've tried some settings in the bios such as fastboot, usb legacy support, usb initialization, etc, but they don't help at all.

So this leads me to believe that windows just doesn't know that there's a keyboard giving it input for a while after startup. Unfortunately, I don't have another keyboard to test this.
It used to be that the keyboard's backlight would come on before the monitor would automatically display the hdmi input after the windows startup, and i could type in my password and log in within seconds after boot. When the monitor displays a few seconds later, I would already be on the desktop...

Any idea why this is occurring?

Preferred Solution: Keyboard (drivers?) slow to load on startup

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Keyboard (drivers?) slow to load on startup

You can check if there is a service for your keyboard with delayed automatic.
Also try uninstall and re-install keyboard software.
Perhaps a clean startup to see if some other program/service is interfering. Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Background -

* Computer running XP pro (native install from Dell), sp2
upgraded. Pretty standard USB keyboard, Kensington trackball (w.
Kensington software). System works fine.
* Tried to install a Wacom Graphire III tablet. This works fine
(even simultaneously with the trackball), but whenever you reboot the
system, you get a system stop, and the only thing to fix it is to go
back to a "pre Wacom" restore point. Wacom drivers updated to best off
web, no help.
* Called Wacom - they suggested that I deinstall Kensington to see
if the conflict is there. This I did, and it didn't help. When back to
the "pre-kensington deinsall" checkpoint.
* At this time the symptoms below started happening:

Symptoms:

* The keyboard has stopped working! When you boot windows, the
keyboard (what few keys you can test) works fine, and the "num lock"
light is on. About 3/4 of the way through the Windows reboot process,
however, the green light goes off and the keyboard stops working
(entirely). For example, you can't log in, because you can't type your
password. This also happens in safe mode, I think.
* Luckily, I routinely use this machine in remote desktop mode -
so I log in remotely. All is well, except when you go into device
manager view, the keyboard shows and error. The error (#39)
explains that Windows was unable to load the drivers, because they are
corrupted or missing.

I came back from vacation, opened my laptop, and clicked on my computer. Only the "c" drive showed up. There was no icon for my CD/DVD drive. Put a CD in and nothing happened. Went to device manager and it said This device cannot start (code 10). I called Toshiba since my note is new and he had me go thru the regisrty editor and delete an upper filter, whatever that is. I restarted and everything was fine. It worked.
Next day, no CD/DVD icon in my computer. Any ideas?

A:Cd/dvd Drivers Will Not Load At Startup, Help!

Does your laptop include one of those horrendous manufacturer-created "recovery partitions"? Because manufacturers are so cheap, nowadays, many of them don't include any physical media with the PC. Rather, they create a proprietary image of what used to be an actual "recovery CD/DVD" and save it to an "invisible" partition, usually situated immediately before what Windows marks the C: drive.

I'm not sure that it's relevant; I'm just curious. I have had problems with drives/letter assignments due to these manufacturer-supplied recovery partitions.

It seems that you cant load drivers in the windows 8 startup menu/troubleshoot menu. If you have a OS drive that requires a driver to see (raid controller, some SSD's, sata controller, etc), then you cant use the windows 8 startup troubleshooting tools. There is no option in the menu to load drivers and therefor every recovery tool in the menu fails.

While the majority of computers don't need to load drivers to see the main boot drive, a fair amount do, so this lack of ability to load drivers to see it confuses me. I feel like I must be missing something. I even looked at trying to load drivers from the command prompt, but its not available with the tools in the troubleshoot environment.

I did find a "way" to get the recovery tools to work on drives that need drivers. Grab the windows 8 disk and proceed with an install until it asks you to load drivers for drives. After you load the driver, cancel out of the install which will bring you back to the start of the windows install disk which has a "repair my computer" option. That option loads an identical troubleshoot environment, but now has access to the drive thanks to the install processes "load driver" option.

The biggest problem with that tho is, not only do you need to have the install disk, but you also need your serial key so that you can proceed to the install point that has the option to load the drivers. If you come across a machine that someone has asked you to fix, what are the ... Read more

I'm trying to run my dell desktop but whenever windows beings to boot up i get an error message that says keyboard drivers not found press f2 for setup but my keyboard won't work. Any suggestions?
 

A:Keyboard drivers not found on XP startup

Simple. Get a new keyboard. If your PC supports a PS/2 keyboard then use that. Or make sure that USB is enabled in the BIOS. Difficult to enter the BIOS if your keyboard doesnt work. Clear the CMOS directly on the motherboard. Check your manual for instructions. Easiest way is the power off PC, unplug the kettle load then take the side off the case. Next locate the watch battery and carfefully remove it. Wait 10 seconds then press and hold the power on button for 30 seconds. Put the battery back in and power up the PC again and hopefully USB will work and you will have control over the keyboard.

Hi, I like to believe I'm kinda tech savvy. I'll start by saying that my old 19" monitor went out and now I have a 32" dell monitor I'm using. Every time I update my video drivers to most current and then restart comp for them to take full effect, it will go through the green microsoft loading bar and then screen goes to self test, Yet there is still a windows sound and I can even log in, but no video for these parts. I can go into safe mode perfectly fine. I can even uninstall my video drivers and I'm capable of starting normal mode fine. Only when I update drivers do I have this problem. I have done alot of troubleshooting to try to get this monitor to work with my computer, searched on several different search engines for a solution to this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm seeing several error messages in the event log and I'm unsure which one is the actual crashing of the comp, so I'll be back to post that info. Thanks for your time and help!

I recently have been experiencing BSOD with BUGCODE USB error. Machine freezes on startup, then sometimes automatically reboots. Sometimes freezes on startup at different points and has to be unplgged for about an hour before it restarts properly. I read on several threads to uninstall the USB drivers and on startup, the drivers will reinstall automatically. The only problem is the keyboard and mouse are USB and on startup, none of the USB ports work so I can't enter the password to start windows properly so that it can load the drivers. Hindsight is 20/20 but I now realize that was pretty stupid as I have no other ports to plug the keyboard and mouse to.

A:Deleted bad USB drivers, now on startup, USB keyboard and mouse inop

Ok. I let it sit for about an hour and it fired up. Keyboard and mouse work OK after startup. Still will not shut down properly and locks on the shutdown screen. Will not reboot unless you leave it for about an hour. I am currently using the machine as I type this and it seems to work OK. It just locks up during shutdown and locks up sometimes during startup. I'm guessing a bad USB driver but not sure.

Since window (SFC, and chkdsk) seem to indicate Win 7 is ok, and Kubuntu also seems ok, I suspect it is in the boot loader. What/how are you picking the active OS?

How many programs do you have set to run at start up? If you look at the clock in the bottom right hand corner of your monitor, does it have quite a lot of icons?

This could be a factor with a slow start up as alot of programs are trying to load at the same time.

We have been experiencing increasingly slow start-up and load times, and more recently unresponsive mouse movements. All very annoying, and now almost unusuable. It all seems to point to problems left over after being infected with various spyware problems. These were removed with superantispyware (which I subsequently removed) and malwarebytes' Anti-malware (which I've left on), however the damage seems to have been done. Apparently HiJackThis can identify the problems and fix them, but it's far too advanced for me to do on my own.

I am running Windows 10 1511 10836, having upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 back in August 2015. This morning when I turned on my Lenovo B575 laptop, after the first Windows screen with animated circling dots at the bottom, when it refreshed the screen and went to the 2nd Windows screen, I noticed that the animation with the circling dots was slow. After several minutes, the computer was still on this screen. After 15 minutes and no change, I restarted the computer.

Upon 2nd startup I got the same results. On 3rd startup I got the Please Wait screen and then eventually got to the Startup and Repair screen. After diagnosing found nothing, I then went to the System Restore page and found that a Windows Update had installed yesterday afternoon. I restored to the Restore Point created yesterday, and restarted.

(Last Thursday I had to force the upgrade to the 1511 10836 update by downloading the 3.5Gb file because Windows Update kept failing. I have had no problems since then.)

No change. I can get to Safe Mode after 2 failed attempts, but without knowing what to check or look for, this does me little good. Of course can I reset/reinstall Windows 10 but would rather not if I don't have to.

Any advice?

Hi,

I've owned Norton 2006 for quite a while and it takes so long to finish loading and for the green check mark to appear saying everything is OK. I can use other programs while Norton loads but it slows them down until Norton finishes. I also have Norton 2008 for my other computer, and it loads 10 times faster.

Is this only because Norton 2006 is an older version and normally takes longer, or is there anything I can do to make it faster or as fast as Norton 2008. Also, is there a way to update Norton 2006 to Norton 2008 without having to buy another copy of 2008?

Thanks for your help!

A:Norton 2006 Slow Load And Startup Times

You will have to have a different key in order to update Norton.Instead of paying for the update, you could try free antivirus and firewall programs.A list of recommended programs can be found here: Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Appshttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.htmlThere is no one size fits all when it comes to computer security. What works well on one computer may not play nice on another system. On the system with 2006, when did it start to slow load? Was it fast loading in the past? It's possible that for some reason Norton has decided not to play nice with the computer. The programs in the link above are all excellent ones you can try. If you choose one and you don't like it, it can easily be uninstalled so you can try another one. No money lost or wasted.

Hi. This is the first time I've ever posted on any kind of forum. I'm a bit stumped and wondered if anyone could help. I was downloading music a couple of weeks ago from those torrent websites (stupid) and found myself with Spyware/Malware/Trojans. Firstly, I spent ages downloading lots of registry cleaners/fixers and found that ActiveX kept coming up in the search. I then gave up on that idea and downloaded Spyware scanner/fixers - Spybot Search & Destroy and Malwarebytes. These bought up some Spyware which I removed. Now:

1) Mozilla Firefox won't open at all. It is always there under 'Processes' in Task Manager but it won't open. (Internet Explorer works fine) Mozilla won't even open in Safe Mode - there is not even an option to open it in Safe Mode. It won't even open after I close Mozilla in the 'Processes' tab and reboot.
2) Adobe Flash Player doesn't work - even if I reinstall it, no icon appears and I can't find it in 'Add/Remove Programs'.
3) ActiveX - not sure exactly what the issue is with this
4) On Start up, it takes a long time for the icons to appear.

Bizarely, I tried starting Windows in Safe Mode today and Mozilla Firefox worked fine. But in Windows normal mode, it won't open at all.

Hi-have been struggling with my system taking 2-3 minutes to find drivers for any memory stick I plug in to any of 3 USB ports on my Acer 1810T. When the process finally completes, the transfer speeds are about 1MB/s or less.

Once I remove and either re-insert (or insert a different card), nothing appears. I get a message saying "process is already in memory". I have to reboot to get things working again.

Brand new it was too slow to even read gmail via the Chrome browser. Finally, after a year-and-a-half or longer I INSTANTLY fixed the slow internet problem. Search and start "Task Manager" > Start Up > and DISABLE "USB enhanced performance Keyboard". I went from waiting 2-3 minutes for a blank google search page to show up, to it just instantly popping up like a normal internet capable machine!  Searching for anything on a google page would take a few minutes to give the results, now it's instant. After I did this fix I also went in Google Chrome browser > help > About Google Chrome and updated Chrome itself. ****I had lots of trouble when I first bought my fully loaded Think Centre. They shipped the wrong computer to me (it belonged to another customer); they triple charged my credit card (so I had to cancel the card!); they took a while to refund me the overcharges; I had to spend weeks arguing with various people to get MY computer shipped to me, etc. I was so bummed out by that process that when I plugged my Think Centre in and couldn't even read an email I just gave up and didn't use it for over a year.  Well, I had a couple days off in a row so I was cleaning out cabinets and closets and came upon this tiny computer (which was awesome except you LITERALLY couldn't even read emails with it).  Well, disabling the USB Enhanced Performanc...

ok this is gonna be a bit long but i want the details there. the issue pc is my old pc. it has windows 7 its an asus msn-la motherboard i cloned this drive and used it in my new pc. after a few months my new pc's drive died and i took the old drive from the issue pc(witch was not giving issues at this time) and stuck it into my new pc until my replacement drive came. when i got the replacement drive i cloned the drive again onto the replacement drive and then put the new drive in the new pc had no issues there. put the old drive back into the issue pc (this is when issues started) the pc booted up to the windows desktop loading screen fast but once it got there it sat there for like 5 min before loading into windows. once it loaded into windows it was un usable for around 10 min while it loaded background stuff. once it finally loads into windows if i try to open anything its still responding extremely slow. is there anything i could do to fix this or is this going to me a re install only situation? i did try to use a windows 7 disk to do a startup repair but it claimed i couldn't do it because i dident install from that disk.

Almost seems like video memory is not being swapped correctly or maybe something I'm not aware of is running the the background stealing system resources.
I can see that I have many instances of SVCHOST running when opening the TaskManager.
I have run CCleaner and optimized the HD. Not sure where to go from here. I have also shut down/disabled most programs on startup.

Hi

I've got a bit of a problem and after a bit of research I think I've narrowed it down.

I've just upgraded my Processor from a FX6350 to a FX8350. For some reason booted into windows and the keyboard does not want to work. Thought maybe because not powerful enough PSU so I've used another one (I've got a 500w and tried a 600w) and still got the same issue.

Thing is, the keyboard works in post boot and bios but not windows. Bit of research and people say it's the drivers. So I've had a look at device manager and sure enough theres a yellow warning icon on the keyboard and says it cannot find the drivers, so I've found the drivers for the keyboard and gone to install them but I've got another problem:- The driver installer wants me to insert the keyboard into the PC, which I have but it is still not being recognized and there is no lights on my keyboard or anything, the Next button is greyed out and nothing I can do. is there a way of getting round this?

I've got Windows 8 64bit, Saitek Cybourg V7 keyboard, and been doing this all in Safemode. In BIOS, Legacy USB Support and Legacy USB3 Support are both enabled

I've opened opened Windows update and it said there was an update for my keyboard so I've downloaded it and it's thrown up and error and cannot install it, the error is 800f0219

Could this still be a powersupply problem or is it simply drivers?
I never had this issue when I had the FX6350 installed, only since the FX8350 has been installed today has this happened

A:Keyboard drivers installer unable to recognise keyboard

Is this a special keyboard? does your motherboard have ps2 connection for a keyboard/mouse? If so, try connecting a ps2 keyboard as a temporary solution until you can iron out the driver issues. Or maybe just a plain vanilla USB keyboard will do the trick. I don't think your PSU has anything to do with it. Hope this helps.

Hi guys I was cleaning my laptop turned it on and it just wouldn't work so I turned it off and on again and it was giving me this error code saying my keyboard is not detected in start up. It then says there was a problem and shoots me to startup repair where it's just stuck not doing anything. My mouse and keyboard don't work, but I have a wireless mouse that I can use I can't access safe mode either because my keyboard doesn't work and I don't know if I can get a keyboard hooked up since my computer might not be able to recognize it. Sorry for the badly worded paragraph it's really late and I need to go to sleep. How can I solve this problem. Also startup time is really long ( usually 20 seconds) is now 5 min an doesn't even start up some times and I have no recovery disks or anything like that so im really confused what to do
Edit: A quick update, I started my computer in the morning and was not getting error 01010003, and my computer started perfectly fine however my keyboard still isn't working. I think it might be a driver problem, but I can't access Safe Mode... because my keyboard doesn't work. Is the only way of getting the key board to work getting a new keyboard and using that to diagnose the problem through safe mode or?

A:Error 0101003 Keyboard no detected, stuck on startup/startup repair

In this situation, you have to use another keyboard in order to test. I wish you will be luckier than me .... for me it turned out to be a motherboard failure My computer was working normally .... but no USB/PS2 ports were working.

I run both IE 8 and Firefox on my Dell Dimension system. I'm having problems now with both browsers taking forever to load. This may be a virus or network problem. IE 8 just loaded now after 15 minutes (exactly - I timed it).

Details:
- Once it's loaded once, both browsers load in normal amounts of time.
- I haven't downloaded any new add-ons lately unless one browser or the other installed one in the background.
- The problem just started today after a reboot.
- I've also noticed that my network icon in the taskbar doesn't show up anymore when I first boot but by the time IE opens, it has showed up.
- Using ipconfig, I did determine that I am on the network and connected immediately after boot up (router also shows me connected immediately).
- I've tried running IE from the command line with iexplore.exe -extoff. It didn't make any difference. I don't know if this works with IE 8 though.
- When I click to open either web browser, the process shows up right away in Task Manager and remains.
- I have all the latest updates to both browsers that I know of.
- I've run a complete system scan with McAfee (fully updated as of today.)

Now I've run out of ideas on what to try. I appreciate any help!

Thanks!

Recently I have decided to update the USB 3.0 drivers on my MSI Z97 PC MATE motherboard as it turned out that they weren't installed, and because I bought a USB 3.0 memory stick. When I just got this motherboard I didn't install them as after doing so I got a BSOD and had to do a system restore. Now that I've seen that a newer version is available, I decided to update along side my BIOS and other drivers. The updates went find with no problems, and the USB 3.0 ports are working great.

However, every time I start up my PC there's like a 10 second delay before I can use anything connected to the USB ports, which is rather annoying as some of my programs rely on some of the USB devices to be connected at startup, so I have to configure them one by one manually after startup. What has also happened is that the desktop icon positions aren't saving, and nor is the position/size of windows.

I'm thinking that it may have also been something to do with the registry as I cleaned it with CCleaner (not a good idea, it broke my Chrome updates a while ago). Can anyone please help? I'm really out of options and this is really annoying me. So far I tried to make it so that all of the USB related services are run automatically on startup, I tried restoring the old registry... Perhaps there's a way to fix it? Any help is appreciated!

I was actually getting ready to post here about my x00000124 problem but reading other posts realized that my motherboard drivers were freakishly out of date (2006 versions, forgot about them last time I was installing a system). I dled all new ones, installed them all, performed a restart and then used newly installed ASUS Suite to update my BIOS.

Not sure if that's relevant, but after that last successful startup there was a bunch on popups asking for promision to launch several application (related to the driver update I imagine). I agreed to all of those and nothing beyond that happened.
I did not restart computer again before performing BIOS upgrade.

BIOS itself seems to work just fine.

When I attempted to start system with new BIOS my computer restarts about 1 sec after starting animation begins. I can only launch it in "Startup Repair" mode and it communicates that automatic repair was impossible. For those reasons i can't provide that archive with dumps and whatnot. Safe Mode isn't working either.

Running Win7x86, and it started getting extremely slow, within 2 days of this it started refusing to load at all.

When trying to load the boot screens take AGES, often sitting blank black for 2/3 mins. Then it sticks on the windows 7 flag for a few minutes and restarts. Upon restart it defaults to the repair centre, where the "windows is loading files..." bar slllooooowwwwlllyyy drags itself to full over 10 or so minutes.

I've managed a few successful start-up repairs, but to no improvement.

I would rather get this fixed myself than resort to the arduous process of ebuyer returns.

I realize this BSOD might be a commonly reported problem but the issues here seem not to have been addressed specifically by other threads so I hope I haven't opened a new thread unnecessarily. Anyhow, here goes...
Various pc problems have arisen since coming home from holiday last week:

Background: 2 months ago: installed samsung SSD to run a new install of Win 7 64bit - on Asus P5NE-SLI with newly installed AHCI controller card. Successful after some troubleshooting; ran fine for several weeks.

PC left for 2 weeks while on holiday: on return a few days ago pc had problems on start-up: blank screen; no/slow start-up then BSOD attached.
The problem now is specifically a start-up issue: very slow to boot windows; if I hit F8 or del then BIOS loads very slowly, if at all; windows loads but freezes part way through. It DOES eventually load but it doesn't seem stable: yesterday the pc restarted unprompted.
The clock time was incorrect by about 20minutes when I got home from holiday (cmos battery?)

So far, I have (in chronological order)...
cleaned out dust, checked for shorts and loose wires

Earlier today, my PC went from being perfectly fine to being extremely slow. I had a hunch that it may have been a virus or some serious malware so I tried to open up Malware and Ad-aware but everything was 'not responding.'

I ended up powering off via holding button. When I tried to load up again, the PC loaded to the blue welcome screen, but from there, it just hanged. i could open task manager but I was unable to open file > new task or anything.

I was able to go into safemode and load up Malware and Ad-aware. I searched on the internet from my laptop about what could be causing this. I found that a virus named Nimda could be a culprit. I found a fix for it so I cancelled my scans and tried the fix, but it did not work.

So here I am, back in safemode, attempting to run the scans on 2 of my harddrives.

If this does not work, does anyone have any advice or insight?

Thanks, I appreciate it!

I forgot to add that I actually left my computer to load (not safemode) and it ended up loading background, taskbar, icons, desktop icons...it took about 35min.

Even after this, I tried to open certain things like start menu or my computer, and it ended up taking 2-3min for each action.

Also, task manager shows very low CPU usage (about 1-2%) and about 20% physical memory usage.

As mentioned in the PrepGuide...here is the dds.txt and attach.txt
 
Anxiously waiting for Your diagnose:)

Earlier today, my PC went from being perfectly fine to being extremely slow. I had a hunch that it may have been a virus or some serious malware so I tried to open up Malware and Ad-aware but everything was 'not responding.'

I ended up powering off via holding button. When I tried to load up again, the PC loaded to the blue welcome screen, but from there, it just hanged. i could open task manager but I was unable to open file > new task or anything.

I was able to go into safemode and load up Malware and Ad-aware. I searched on the internet from my laptop about what could be causing this. I found that a virus named Nimda could be a culprit. I found a fix for it so I cancelled my scans and rebooted. This time, I let it sit there. Everything had loaded properly...35min later! From here, everything was very slow.

I tried to open certain things like start menu or my computer, and it ended up taking 2-3min for each action.

Also, task manager (even opening task manager took 4min alone) showed very low CPU usage (about 1-2%) and about 20% physical memory usage.

My computer specs:
Win7 x64
Intel Core2 E7200
4 gigs of RAM
ATI HD4870

So here I am, back in safemode, attempting to run the scans (using Malware bytes + ad-aware + spybot) on 2 of my harddrives.

If this does not work, does anyone have any advice or insight?

Thanks, I appreciate it!
