trouble booting / mouse not detected
Posted on 1998-11-16
I took off my case to try and detect a weird sound from computer. located the sound which was my cd-r . When I went to start up my computer though windows gives me this message "windows did not detect a mouse attached to the computer you can safely attach a mouse now to a ps/2 port. to attach a ps/2 mouse port you must list turn off computer first. Problem is at this stage I cannot turn off my computer by normal mean It freeze on the this screen. I have started in safe mode and I am able to use my mouse. In the device manager I a cannot locate and obvious problems. It does say that device status is not available when windows is in safe mode. Under resources it says this device isnt using any resources becauses it is not currently enabled or has problem but it also say the same thing under other devices ie adapters and other ports.
I was thinking it was a driver problem but not sure. How do I fix this problem . I am not able to do anything on my computer right now expect start in safe mode. I have a HP pavilion 7420 series pentium 200 128megs of ram use windows 95 . One other thing before all this happened and before shutting down the first time windows warned me that I was using 90% of my cpu resources and told me to close some applications , I know I wasnt using that much not sure what was up with that ? any ideas?
