Envy DV7 start up problems.

So I custom ordered this HP Envy DV7 a few weeks ago and just got it in the mail last monday. No problems at all, except for one. When it's off and I press the power button to turn it on, it sounds like everything internal is starting but the screen is just black. I figured out that if I turn it back off and unplug all USB devices from and turn it back on, it starts no problem. Now this is a bit annoying. Can anybody tell me why, and is tehre a way I can leave everything plugged in and get it to start normally? I have a Logitec wireless mouse plugged in, and a Targus cooling matt with it's own USB ports that have a HP 1051 printer and iogear smart card reader plugged into it.

I found somewhat of a solution. As long as I leave my smart card reader unplugged it starts up find, not sure why it messes with the start up, but whatever.

What model do you have? After having my Pavillion dv-7 (6b32us) in for repair 4x and still not working right, they are sending me a new laptop (dv-7 7243cl). I'd like to know what you think about it & Windows 8 in general.

 

 

thanks
