Question about HP Compaq Presario SR2150NX PC Desktop

1 Answer

Busted registry I guess I fiddled with my Windows registry one too many times. Mouse and keyboard don't work at all. Not even in safe-mode. Can a new registry be loaded on my disk? I don't care if 90% of my previously-installed apps don't work. I hope to re-install one or two apps so I can bring closure to this thing. I don't want a "restore", because there's so much stuff on my disk that I don't want wiped out. Plan B is to try to guess folder-names where all my stuff is and have someone pull off what I might want.

Hi,
If you are using PS2 port, you can try using usb type keyboard and mouse just to check I/O system.

You can also boot to "Safe Mode" by pressing F8, F10, F2..depending on the brand of pc you are using. If the mouse and keyboard work in Safe Mode, then you are having a software problem. In this case, you can try either of the following options.
- scan for virus, malware or spyware
- obtain windows updates
- reinstall the operating system
- try to do registry editing (it is advisable to back up everything before performing this step, just reinstall the operating system if you are not comfortable of performing this step)

I hope this helps.

Assuming the keyboard and mouse are wired/usb type, I would unplug them both, then restart the machine. Wait for windows to completely load, then plug them back in (preferably into different usb ports) then wait 60 seconds... That should resolve your issue.

How can I unlock the keyboard and mouse on a acer aspire 300


Try starting the computer in safe mode by pressing the F8 key repeatedly on boot. The start up menu will appear. Chosse safe mode and run an antivirus and antispyware program in safe mode. Your system is freezing and that is why your keyboard is not working. You should find that the keyboard and mouse will work properly while you are in safe mode. I suspect that something is stealing your available resources when you start in regular mode.

Acer Aspire 5050 won't run in normal mode only safe mode


Try reinstalling the ATI Southbridge Drivers. The AMD website will have a link (it's on the same page as the Catalyst drivers).

You will have to use version 9.3 as the Radeon Xpress series is no longer supported with 9.4 and up.

Unable to start in Safe Mode with Command Prompt in XP Media Center 2005


Hi there. My name is Alex and I am here to help solve this problem

Depending if the BIOS has legacy USB support for keyboard and mouse enabled, you should be able to run safe mode by pressing F8 before the computer boots into windows. I would not recommend going into the BIOS if you do not have much knowledge to the computer as one wrong configuration could cause some behaviour problems or even damage to the pc's components

I recommend connecting a keyboard and mouse that have cable and the PS/2 connectors (purple and green) which can be found at back of the computer at the top. Then restart your computer, hold down F8 and you will be able to run safe mode. The mouse and keyboard will then work

Keep both the keyboard and mouse plugged in and boot windows. When you get into windows, plug in the USB keyboard and mouse into a USB slot and wait whilst it detects it. After a couple of minutes you should be able to use your USB mouse and keyboard and take out the PS/2 keyboard and mouse

I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.

Acer Aspire 3690-continuously reboots then checks harddisk several times, every time I start this Laptop


First remove any new, or unnecessary hardware, extra mouse / keyboard / monitors / dongles / and even the battery.

Try again, and if possible, get into 'safe mode' by pressing F8.

If it is stable in safe mode, you at least can try removing devices under, START / CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE / DEVICE MANAGER. Then whilst disabling various devices, try booting again into normal mode, and obtain a new, AND correct driver for whatever piece of hardware was deemed to be at fault.

Erik.
