Re: USB not working after windows xp loads..please need help ASAP
i didnt figure it out but its solved. i had stated tho that the Ps/2 ports didnt work as well as USB. i have an adapter and keyboard/mice ot match. any how..i used ACTIVE BOOT DISK program , booted from USB , grabbed all my files from program files and my documents , i couldnt grab from this pc as the permissions are always denied. then i use partition magic to wipe the drive and started over.
Also turns out that somehow..my copy of windows disc was bad, the one i've used for a long time. i loaded in this pc..menu came up everything worked..booted from this pc ..all good..my main would read and i could enter disc and get into menu , while in active boot , but it just wouldnt let me boot from it. i got a friends disc an hour ago and it worked right away.
a TECH guy my wife knows told me a tons of things to do, all of which i had done already, and the problem even stumped him. all he could think of was some virus or something , blocked out all the com ports and all i could notice were the mouse and keyboard, since those are only ones u can see the control gone.
So all is good now, and yet another mystery unsolved. thank anyways.
