Both mouse and keyboard are plugged into the regular ports- not usb. The only new program added was- I got a Linksys router, installed that oh, maybe 2 weeks ago. The problem computer (#1) is wired through the router, the intention was to hook up THIS computer (#2) wireless. The router kept dumping my security codes, and I haven't had time to sort that out. Computer #2 is hooked up wired now, and seems to work fine.
When I was able to get it to work, I did go into the device manager, had no question marks, keyboard was listed. Now that the problem came back, I can't get there, can't get past the log on screen- (can't type password).
My 9 yr old states the other day he was on the webkins website, a window popped up stating the computer was shutting down, he clicked "no", computer shut down anyway. No other descriptors, he actually know less about computers than I do. (?!?!??!)
How do I get past the password screen to get to the device manager?
btw- I am using that keyboard and mouse on this computer (#2), no problems, plug and played.
