My keyboard and mouse will not work at all not even when rebooting! I bought another one and they will not work. Everything else that uses usb is still working! Help!


Here we go, this is the best way to avoid reinstalling duplicate hardware, which we have all done at one time or other. You need to get to the device manager, start, settings, control panel, system, device manager , hardware, now you will see everything installed in your machine, if you see duplicates for the mouse and keyboard remove them, if no yellow marks in the device manager, uninstall both the keyboard and the mouse, when uou reboot, it will have a pop up in the system taskbar that says, found new hardware, and then it will say installing the software for your new hardware. If this doesn't work then we need to go into the "install hardware" also in the control panel, but that should do it, I am giving you a lot of info, but sometimes we can't find you again until a day or two later so I want you to have all possible inf before you start. Also the easiest way of all is this. If the computer was working yesterday or last week, we can do a system restore thus restoring it to a time when everything was ok and everything was working, this is Start, accessories, system tools, system restore, pick the day from the choices shown on the calander and sit back as it restores your machine back to a working computer, have a good night and good luck,Gym

No desktop showing when laptop switched on


Exactly whst is howing, just an empty windows screen? Reboot your pc and as soon as you see something on the screen start hitting the F8 key. This will take you to a boot option list. Select last known good configuration. See what happens. If that doesn't work. reboot again and hit the F8 key again, this time choosing safe mode. If it boots into safe mode do a system restore. Go to start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Look at the dates and see if something was installed on a date a day or two ago. Pick a date before that. If nothing was, pick a date about two days ago when everything was running fine. The system will then reboot itself and tell you if it was successful. If it is running ok do a complete virus scan and anti-spyware check. If you need these programs I can tell you where to get good ones for free. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate yet. Just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. If you need those programs just add a comment also. Thanks.
