Ok so i have been trying to fix my computer and i have done everything i know and i got it narrowed down to if no usb is plugged in the computer boots just fine and once windows is booted i can plug any usb device in and they work fine i just have to make sure everything is unplugged during the boot. I ordered a new motherboard do you think this will solve my problem, or is there something i should try before i replace it

Check in your BIOS to see if your first boot is set to "USB-BOOT" or "REMOVABLE DEVICE" or something similar, put your Hard Drive as your first boot to see if this will solve your problem.

There are USB problems that can be fixed (not always)by disconnecting the computer from any power source for 30 minutes or more (let's make it 60). Disconnect from the wall socket, take out the CMOS battery and just wait.
