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.

Thanks expert007, also whats needed for games on Acer t671 PC

Driver Install INF Error


Physically uninstall the 4850. Now download and install "Revo uninstaller" (FREE). Use this tool to completely uninstall any and all software associated with the 4850. Next run system restore and restore your computer to a date prior to your original physical installation of the card. The computer should now re-start to it's condition before the 4850. Now you can begin a PROPER installation by first installing the SOFTWARE that came with the card and following the instructions to install the card afterward. Remember, Windows likes software FIRST.

P.S. If you want to run with the big dogs - carry a map.

I have bought an acer t180 with windows vista from a mate and would like to reset it back to factory settings as it is really slow and has alot of programs that will not uninstall properly, but i can not...


acer do not supply backup discs, when the unit is purchased your mate would have been pompted to do a backup disc using the supplied software, which then leaves a file on another partition to be used in conjunction with the backup cd,s.

lll you can do is uninstal all unwanted programmes and clean up the system using Ccleaner which is free to download and cleans all temp files and old registry entries.

You may also have trojan or virus, so run your antivirus programme to scan the system.

Since you updated the computer to Vista, the adapter will no longer work because it uses XP drivers. You need to uninstall the adapter completely and then reinstall it using the correct Vista drivers. The drivers are available on the Belkin Support site.

Uninstalling game trial


this type of programme will be accessing the internet when you are online, so the only way you can uninstall it especially if it is not in add/remove programmes, is to start up the pc in safe mode (keep pressing F8 on boot up) and then when prompted select start windows in safe mode, or try system restore to a date before your daughter installed it. All your icons will be large, but dont worry, see if you can uninstal from add/remove prog if its ther, if not look in your c:\programmes folder for it if you know the name of it or click search and delete all folders it finds, sometimes it's only a shortcut on your desktop and nowhere else. When you have uninstalled it restart your pc and it will go back into normal boot up and it should not re appear.
