Failure to detect keyboard and mouse.
Posted on 2004-10-30
Hi, about two hours ago I restarted a computer of mine that runs Windows 2000 due to a Windows Update. When I restarted it I noticed that the keyboard and mouse couldn't be found (since the cursor doesn't show neither does the Windows button work, even Number Lock won't turn off when you press the key) and I have tried another mouse and keyboard which neither worked. I repaired Windows 2000 by booting from the install disk and that didn't help either. I am confused as to what to do and what has caused this, it is late at night and I can't be bothered sitting through a windows reinstallation if I can help it. If anyone has any help at all to share, please do so, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks, and good night/day wherever you are.
