When windows vista boots, there is no keyboard or mouse buttons that work. You can move the mouse over the screen icons and that seems functional, but when you try to push a right or left mouse button, nothing happens. When I try to press the windows start button on the keyboard nothing happens either.
i have put in a new hd and built windows 7 and have verified that both input devices work. I have booted into safe mode in windows vista and all seems OK from there. I have run msconfig and disabled all of the startup items to try and clear the potenial program running that may cause this issue. I have scanned the system with both MBAM and with Super-antispyware and nothing has been pulled up. I have upgraded the memory from 2 GB to 3 Gb suspecting that maybe the system was running out of memory resources, but it still have not changed in any way.
perplexed??? you bet. The system is a Compaq 6510b
