USB devices not working. Always fixed by restarting PC.

Almost every time when I start my PC, it's unable to detect all my USB devices.
Keyboards/mice/hard drives/game pads, everything is completely dead.
It doesn't matter if I'm starting it from being shut down, or if I'm waking it from sleep, the behavior is the same.

To fix it, I have to restart the PC, or put it back to sleep/wake it up again.
Sometimes I have to do it several times, but eventually all my USB devices will light up/turn on and work just fine for however long I keep my PC on.
Sometimes I get lucky and it works the first time.
I have an app on my phone that I can use to control the mouse when everything else is dead, so I've been able to test things like reinstalling USB drivers while the problem is still happening.

I have tried every solution listed here:
