This question may be in a completely wrong catagory. Please forgive me for that, guys...
I have a big problem with my new MEDION Multimedia PC MD8835. Preinstalled with Vista, successfully repartitioned and transformed into a Windows XP computer (all drivers installed correctly) by myself.
I lost the use of my PS/2 keyboard and PS/2 mouse.
At this point i do not know if it is a piece of broken hardware (in which case I have a full warranty), or whether I have messed up myself. I have been experimenting with the BIOS setting concerning SATA/ACHI/IDE support. I may have at one point - I do not remember exactly - disabled something called "PCI BUS" or something of that nature.
Now I cannot access BIOS. The PS/2 keyboard simply doet not work (nor does the PS/2 mouse). I tried inserting a USB keyboard and USB mouse (not wireless), but they only work when Windows XP is starting up - not before or in the boot process, not giving me the chance to hit "Del" which is the BIOS entry botton on this computer.
Is it likely that I have unintentionally disabled PS/2 support?
There was no warning in BIOS when (if) I did that.
I find it hard to believe that it would be possible to disable basic functions so effectively that the computer remains useless.
Is there any (other) way to enter BIOS and reset to eg. factory setting or default setting to find out wtheter my misfortune is due to the BIOS settings or due to a hardware failure.
Please, make my day, guys!
Thank you in advance.
