Acer travelmate 4670

The seagate hard drive stopped working and I have replaced it with a Western digital 320g drive.
I have reloaded XP from the disk that was made when I first got the laptop and all look fine except that I cannot use the keyboard with any program the mouse is ok but cannot type anything ist as though the keyboard does not exist .
I have run Ubuntu Linux from the CD and the unit works perfectly.
I would appreciate your advice

You might have a usb keyboard requiring a usb 2.0 driver. If no other usb device has worked with xp since you replaced your hard drive, that could be the point of failure.

Make sure you have installed windows xp service pack 2 to get the usb 2.0 driver.

Please tell me if it worked. Thanks.

How do I get a western digital hard drive that is 0mb to a 320g.


Click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes
automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start
You might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box
Right click on your drive select properties and run the disk clean up option.
