    Ok, whenever I restart my computer, my mouse and KB dont work, and I gotta restart twice and everything is ok, but that's just not cool.

    I've lurked these forums for years and usually find out what i need just by searching, but now I just dont know what to do about this.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    USB or PS2 devices?

    If USB, then make sure your BIOS settings are set to recognize them at bootup. Though the problem looks to be sporadic, this can sometimes be an issue since the OS loads drivers automatically for USB devices.

    If PS2, look for conflicting USB devices. I had an issue with a USB Compact Flash card reader that would knock out the PS2 keyboard if it was plugged into the system at startup. This was a motherboard specific issue since the problem disappeared when I upgraded the mainboard.
