Hi When I reboot, my USB keyboard seems to switch itself off midway through the boot process. As a result, I can't log on to Windows (i.e. can't enter a password). Here's how it works: - Press the start button on the PC - The green light on the keyboard comes on [-- If I press Del now, the BIOS config screen loads properly and the keyboard works fine for now] - The Windows logo appears on the screen - The green light on the keyboard goes out - The XP Home login screen comes up - Keyboard doesn't work, but USB Mouse does. Setup is Windows XP Home Edition with Microsoft USB keyboard I tried starting in safe mode, but pressing F8 (while the keyboard is operational) just fills up the keyboard buffer and then the system boots to Windows normally. Anybody got any ideas about this. I'd be extremely grateful for any suggestions at all.
