USB devices stop working on Windows startup

  1. When i start the computer i see that the USB devices are receiving power. As soon as the windows logo / loading screen pops up the USB devices die. I get to the user login screen but i cannot do anything because my computer only has usb ports for my mouse/keyboard.

    I do not want to reformat my hard drive due to having many family pictures stored on the computer.

    What went wrong?

    How can i fix it?

    Thanks
