Ok, my computer was working fine and then disaster struck. My cat was playing innocently with the mouse... and then the pc started beeping as if a key were stuck. Only, it did not stop beeping even after I extracted the feline. I could not move the mouse, so I hard-booted the pc. Now, I cannot use the mouse or keyboard in the windows environment. Neither will work. If I unplug the mouse and reboot the pc I can use the keyboard, and I tried to restore the computer back to the day before in XP... but that did not work. I think that there may be some conflict with the ps/2 ports (both mouse and keyboard are ps/2). Anyone know how I can fix this?
