im not terribly knowledgable about computers but get by considering im only an architect....so the following might sound a bit silly!!! i had a hard drive in my old p3 dual processor machine....have an amd machine now and wanted to move the drive without having to reinstall everything!!! i deleted the hkey_current_config > system > currentcontrolset > enum entry from the registry (this worked for me before) ....i then installed the old drive into the new machine....everything looked fine.....booted to win2k logon screen but then i discovered....the keyboard and mouse didnt work so i couldnt log on....even tried a usb keyboard but to no avail.....still the same problem when i try to boot to safe mode !!! the keyboard seems to stop working just after win 2k starts to load....num lock comes on and stays on....have tried unpluging it and then plugging it back in....even booting with no keyboard.....anybody have any idea what has gone wrong or how i might fix the problem!!!?? thanks in advance!!!!
