Sometimes when I boot up my computer, my monitors, keyboard and mouse are not detected. Is this a motherboard issue? What can I do about it?

Sounds like a hardware issue...first try other peripherals and see if it goes away. If not, probably it's the mobo. –  martineau Aug 14 '12 at 1:22
Are they not detected at all or do they show up in device manager as Unknown? –  CharlieRB Aug 14 '12 at 11:45
This is at boot, so I am not able to login. I've tried other keyboards. –  Spectro Aug 14 '12 at 16:14
