    I am having a very unusual problem with 5 drivers on my laptop.

    Alienware M17x
    Windows7 x64

    Everytime I restart my computer, there are 5 specific drivers that don't start when the system starts. This noticeably started when several Windows Updates installed and required restarts. All driver software is current/latest versions.

    The 5 drivers are:
    -Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter
    -NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller
    -USB Root Hub
    -Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller (x2)

    These 5 drivers show a triangle with an "!" in Device Manager on restarts. I can right-click and uninstall them, then Scan For Hardware Changes, and they will reinstall and work right away. I have no idea why it would behave this way, and I hate doing this everytime my computer needs to restart. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
