Question about Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop
I ran a HD Defrag and went to bed while it was running. Apparently comp shut itself off. Next morning, booted up comp only to notice that it wasn't seeing Keybord / Mouse. Tried 3 different Keyboards / Mice.
It will boot up but I have no way of entering user password to complete boot up. Any suggestions? For time being, I had to rent a computer until this one is fixed or new one purchased (pending tax refund)
Hi armywifeb, for a small fee you can go to Wallmart or BestBuy & buy a PS2 to USB cable for your PC This cable is a Y connector which allows you to plug both, you're PS2 mouse & PS2 keyboard into one end of the Y cable, than plug it into a free USB port. This should help you get through tax season. The link below will give you an idea of what your looking for.
(This is the part).
After tax season is over, please back up all your personal data to either a CD/DVDRW or a slave drive. You will need to format the drive & re-install windows before thinking of buying a new board.
I also suggest, not using windows to format the drive but the drive's Mfg's software tools to format, test & setup of the hard drive. (Better testing & better tools). Just find the name of the drive (Listed on a white sticker) & go to the web site of the Mfg. Download either software for a bootable floppy disk or the software tools for a bootable CD.
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
If I can be of more service, just ask.
