USB Keyboard & Mouse Drivers Gone and Do Not Work
Posted on 2013-02-02
I have a weird situation here.
I basic USB keyboard and USB mouse are plugged into a Windows XP machine. Upon bootup it wants to load the drivers for them (remember that these are basic ones that came with the Dell PC) and this keyboard and mouse do not work.
I have unplugged and re-plugged each into a different USB slot. You hear the noise of disconnecting and reconnecting but yet it wants to install the drivers.
This happens in both safe mode and regualr boot up.
The keyboard works fine in the BIOS and keyboard and mouse work fine in diagnostics area.
I have tried other known good keyboards and mice and they do not work as well.
What can I do to fix this?
Must I do a repair of the OS, or is there something that is easier to do to fix this?
