I have a bit of a problem. Yesterday after manually updating Vista from microsoft website it asked me to restart. I've always allowed it to automatically update once every 24hours but this time I happened to be at microsofts website and decided to do it manually. I did and this is where my problem began...
It restarted and booted to windows with no visual problem. However, I noticed my mouse and keyboard did not work. I tried other usb ports (including the front) to no avail. I removed my printer,microphone and card reader usbs and tried the keyboard/mouse again, it did not work. I did try the keyboard/mouse in another computer and they worked perfectly. So i ruled out a periphereal failure.
I later booted from the Vista Reinstall disc and my keyboard and mouse worked fine. So from here, I realized it's likely a file or two corrupt or not working correctly during bootup. When prompted whether I would like to go to a safemode or normal boot up my keyboard worked fine as it accepted the <enter> and scrolling keys. However, once in windows safemode my keyboard/mouse or any usb device would not work.
Is there some deleting or switching around of bootup files I can work with from the command prompt:?
Appreciate any help
