  1. yesterday everything was working fine. this morning i turned on my computer and it booted correctly, but when it got to my desktop, neither my mouse nor kjeyboard were working

    just a few notes:
    -i have windows xp profesional
    -my mouse uses usb port
    -my keyboard uses ps2 port

    keep in mind the keyboard works only before it reaches my desktop

    i have already tried:
    -rebooting (many, many times)
    -making sure the keyboard and mouse were plugged into the right spots
    -using my brothers mouse and keyboard
    -went into bios
    -repairing windows from cdrom
    SOOO now its installing windows like its supposed to be
    BUT MY MOUSE STILL WONT WORK
    and some pop up popped up (saying something about a software without a liscene and if i want to continue setup anyway)
    and i cant click yes or no so its just stuck at "setup will complete in 34 minutes" and i dont know what to do
    someone please help

    First, try a different mouse and keyboard. Also, try an old keyboard and mouse in PS/2 slots... as a test.

    We are astonished by so many failures of USB mouse and keyboard configurations... There are now so many that don't last longer than a year.
